It was a little disappointing for Mets fans last week when John Harper of the New York Daily News reported that Sandy Alderson would have a spending limit this offseason somewhere in the range of $25 to $30 million. While Jeff Wilpon came out later in the week, calling the spending cap a flexible one, this figure is significantly less than the $35 to $40 million that was originally tossed around. With four to five […]
Former St. Lucie right-hander Hansel Robles recently cleared waivers and was subsequently removed from the Mets 40-man roster according to ESPN’s Adam Rubin. With the drop the Mets roster moves to 39 players, making room until Chris Young passes physicals and is added sometime next week. Robles pitched two games for the Gulf Coast Mets before begin promoted to St. Lucie in 2013. He went on to go 5-4 with a 3.72 ERA in 16 appearances in High-A ball […]
The Mets have a few glaring needs going into this offseason. Despite the numerous promising young players rising through the minor leagues and onto the 40-man roster, there are a few positions that will need to be filled for the team to be competitive in 2014 and beyond. The foundation seems to be there, with an emphasis on young pitching. Third base is locked up, catcher and center field look promising, and the bullpen has […]

The best news to come out of this past week in the Mets minor league system was the Savannah Sand Gnats capturing their first SAL Championship since 1996. The only bad news about that? Mets Minors has officially closed the book on the 2013 season, looking ahead to 2014. Don’t worry though, we’ll be rolling out some solid and constant content to keep you occupied on MMN while the weather starts to get a little […]

Wednesday night at MCU Park in Coney Island was “Bark in the Park” day in which fans could bring their canines to the stadium. But on that night, Brooklyn Cyclones’ righty John Gant was the “top dog.” Gant tossed a complete-game shutout in which he faced the minimum amount of batters in the Cyclones’ 1-0 win over the Tri-City Valleycats to earn the series win. He allowed only one hit while walking one and striking […]
In a telling article for the Wall Street Journal, Jared Diamond questions the wisdom of the Mets potentially trading some young pitchers to obtain the offense the team desperately needs. “As the Mets enter the final stretch before the All-Star break and begin to prepare for a crucial off-season,” he writes. “They are wrestling with a question that could define their future: Should they trade any of their young pitchers?” The question is not that […]
Welcome to MMN Storylines, where you get a quick wrap-up of last night’s top performers.. Our first-round pick in the ’13 Draft, Dominic Smith, hit his first professional home run last night. It was part of a three hit game, where he went 3-for-5 with 3 RBIs. Smith and Wuilmer Becerra both had nice games, with Becerra going 2-for-4 with two doubles. Daniel Muno probably went ahead and had the best game for all Mets Minor League players last night, […]
