Jeremy Hefner being non-tendered doesn’t sit too well with me. It has nothing to do with performance. It’s the human element. I know it’s hard to feel bad for someone who had a half-million dollar a year salary, but of the five players that were non-tendered by the team on Monday, Jeremy’s cut is the one that stings the most. Justin Turner, Scott Atchison, and Omar Quintanilla were arbitration eligible and are of sound mind and […]
The Mets cut five players from their 40-Man Roster yesterday as they made the decision to non-tender and part ways with Scott Atchison, Omar Quintanilla, Jordany Valdespin, Jeremy Hefner and Justin Turner. The decisions to cut ties with Hefner and Turner were the ones that stood out the most for me. As Mike Kerwick described it, Hefner was enjoying the season of his life in 2013. He allowed three earned runs or fewer during 15 […]
Andy Martino of the Daily News is reporting that the Mets have given pitching coach Dan Warthen a two-year contract, according to front office sources. Earlier today, Sandy Alderson confirmed that all coaches the coaches were being retained, but Warthen is the only one to receive a multi-year deal. Warthen has been the Mets’ pitching coach since Jerry Manuel took over for Willie Randolph in 2008, but has worked on a series of one-year deals, […]
There was something Sandy Alderson said during his interview on WFAN on Tuesday that made me laugh. When Mike Francesa brought up how well Dillon Gee had been pitching, the Mets GM responded: “I told Dillon after his last game, remember what I told you two months ago: The other guys are getting the headlines, and you’re getting the wins.” In his team-leading and career-high 28th start, Gee delivered another stellar performance and held the […]
The Mets know it. We know it. Hell, he knows it too. When people projected the future rotation for 2014 or 2015, Dillon Gee was never the first name that came to mind. Even Jeremy Hefner heard his name tossed around more because of his experience working out of the pen. Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Jon Niese, Rafael Montero, Noah Syndergaard, Jenrry Mejia…yeah, those are the names — and Gee finds himself excluded, through no […]
Jeremy Hefner announced via Twitter that he will be undergoing Tommy John Surgery on Wednesday morning and likely miss most if not all of the 2014 season. After seeking a second opinion, an examination on Monday with Dr. James Andrews confirmed the initial diagnosis and surgery was recommended. An MRI a week ago, showed that Hefner has a partial tear of the MCL in his right elbow. After getting off to a rough start, Hefner […]
While New York Mets closer Bobby Parnell continues on the shelf with the prospect of surgery on his herniated disk, the question burns: What are he and the Mets waiting for? Perhaps he can rehab to where surgery isn’t needed, but those odds are getting long. Yes, yes, it is his body and nobody can force surgery upon him, but reading between the lines, if it doesn’t happen, Parnell will risk not being ready for spring training […]

Terry Collins told reporters tonight that after reviewing a new MRI on Jeremy Hefner‘s elbow, they have confirmed that the righthander will need Tommy John Surgery. The MRI showed that Hefner has a partial tear of the MCL in his right elbow and that only surgery can repair the damage, which would wipe out most if not all of his 2014 season. Hefner is considering getting another opinion, but the surgery could happen soon, according to […]
