According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America, Mets prospect Luis Mateo had Tommy John Surgery this week after making just four appearances this season. This feels like it’s coming out of left field…It’s not as surprising as I make it seem because injury experts were actually expecting him to have TJ surgery at the time of his injury. That being said, there was no news on that front for a little while, so I am [...]
This is just something I noticed during the first game of yesterday’s doubleheader. During Matt Harvey‘s at bat in the top of the third, an Atlanta Braves broadcaster made a comment in bad taste. Here’s the clip. For those of unable to play video at work or office, what Braves announcer Joe Simpson said was that he hopes that Matt Harvey strains his oblique. I thought it was a bit classless to wish an injury on [...]
Before today’s game the New York Mets placed infielder Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list due to an intercostal strain and subsequently activated reliever Scott Atchison. However, when Atchison came in to pitch the bottom of the 7th inning, he appeared to injure in his leg while tossing his warmup pitches. Atchison was immediately pulled from the game and replaced by Brandon Lyon. The Mets are calling it a sore right groin. The ailing [...]
Updated by Clayton Collier at 11:24 AM: Roster move: #Mets select INF Omar Quintanilla from Las Vegas (AAA). Place INF Ruben Tejada on 15-Day DL with right quad strain. — New York Mets (@Mets) May 30, 2013 The Mets have officially announced via Twitter that Ruben Tejada has been placed on the 15-Day DL with a right quad strain. Omar Quintanilla will get the call to replace him on the active 25-man roster and [...]
I have always been dubious about Bobby Parnell. Despite the electric fastball, he’s struggled with his command, control and composure on the mound. I always felt that Parnell had the most hittable 98-mph fastball in the history of the game. I personally was ready to give up on him last year, and suggested it was time to move on since he was due a hefty arbitration pay raise in the near future. It turns out [...]
It always is interesting how people automatically call a hitter that hits homers, strikes out a lot and has a low average “Dave Kingman.” Kong certainly had his issues, but regardless of what you think he still had a 16-year career in which he hit 442 homers. To say that Ike Davis is Kingman would be an insult since that would be an improvement over what he’s producing today. As a matter of fact, a [...]
Updated by Mitch Petanick on May 17, 2013 Adam Rubin has reported that Zack Wheeler is scheduled to start throwing again today, and is back with the team in Las Vegas. He was placed on the seven day DL, retroactive to his last start. He will rejoin the rotation next Wednesday when the team is in Iowa. Wheeler received a cortisone shot last Wednesday after being diagnosed with inflammation of the AC joint in his [...]
The concept of fault lines in the media is something we all witness on a daily basis, but rarely recognize. Fault lines are a tool that help shape the perception of ourselves, others and events around us. The ones most are familiar with are culture and gender, but they can also contain factors of age, socioeconomic status and geographical location of the subject. Some of these categories can help us in understanding the enigma that is Jordany [...]
@nymets945 Pill will likely not make next start because of discomfort. Need to find out more about that. He is not on the DL. — Lynn Worthy (@PSBLynn) April 29, 2013 Vaughn said he felt a sensation in his arm after throwing out runner at plate. Called coming out “precautionary.” #BMets #Mets — Lynn Worthy (@PSBLynn) April 30, 2013 Hat tip for Lynn Worthy here for updating us on two minor league players, Cory [...]
