Echoing what Terry Collins told reporters on Friday, Sandy Alderson told season ticket holders at Citi Field this morning, that Rafael Montero is a longshot to be promoted to the Mets this season. He cited an innings limit as the reason and said he’s currently about 70-80 innings away from being shutdown for the season. Last season, Montero tossed just 122 innings and he is already at 73.1 innings this year. Yesterday, Collins said that [...]
I had the chance to talk to New York Mets left-handed pitching prospect Jack Leathersich last February before he headed to Port St. Lucie for the start of Spring Training. With the news that Jack has been promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas, I thought today would be the perfect time to look back at what me and him talked about during our phone conversation where we both covered a lot of ground. Jack is 2-0 with three saves [...]
A few moments ago, left-handed reliever Jack Leathersich tweeted the following: Flight to Vegas #GoMets — Jack Leathersich (@LeatherRocket) June 13, 2013 Unless he’s going out to Vegas to play the slots, one would assume he’s getting promoted from Double-A Binghamton to Triple-A Las Vegas. Earlier this week, Sandy Alderson said on WFAN with Mike Francesa he wouldn’t be opposed to promoting minor leaguers straight from Double-A to the major leagues. It looks like Leathersich [...]
It’s time. Losing seven out of our last eight to the Miami Marlins is proof enough. Measured changes at Citi Field are long overdue. Binghamton’s southpaw reliever Jack Leathersich has been nothing short of dominant this season — and his ascent to the show should be at the top of a long list of personnel changes. As a B-Met fan who attends Binghamton games regularly, I would hate to see Leathersich go. He is a [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas edged out Fresno, 6-5. Binghamton shut out Trenton, 8-0. St. Lucie was shutout by Lakeland, 5-0. Savannah dropped Lexington, 9-2. Prospect Pipeline ESPN has included the names of the other 20 players believed to potentially be facing MLB discipline, and Mets top-hitting prospect Cesar Puello as well as Ex-Met Fernando Martinez are among those included. Cesar Puello also continues to tear the covers off of baseballs. In last night’s victory, Puello was 3-for-4 [...]
As part of the ongoing discussion on who should play for the Mets and who should be sent down, brought up, or traded for, one constant requirement remains: creating enough space on the 40 man roster to permit all these maneuvers to take place. For those needing a refresher, a team’s 40 man (or “expanded”) roster consists of all players on the major league team (generally 25 except for a temporary bump to 26 for [...]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas snuck by Fresno, 3-2. Binghamton shutout New Hampshire, 7-2. St. Lucie split their doubleheader against Charlotte, 7-3, 5-3. Savannah shut down Kannapolis, 7-1. Prospect Pipeline A day after Mets prospect Zack Wheeler rebounded with a solid performance for Las Vegas, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets are considering a variety of factors in setting a date for Zack Wheeler’s major league debut and he could arrive on the [...]
Updated by Joe D. at 10:45 PM Jack Leathersich is freaking unbelievable. He just struck out the side tonight in the ninth inning for Binghamton. His last nine outs have all been Ks and he now has 27 strikeouts in his last 12 innings pitched. For the season, Leathersich has 48 strikeouts in 25.1 innings pitched. Back in January I compared him to Billy Wagner in an interview I did with him. He laughed and [...]
1. Fire Dave Hudgens – Call it bad luck, poor execution or just a failed approach, whatever Hudgens is doing or trying to do has been a massive failure. There are no success stories in his wake and too many good hitters with promise that have regressed. Every failed season needs a fall guy, and Hudgens fits the bill quite nicely. Remember when Steve Phillips fired Bob Apodaca and how it jolted the Mets and [...]
