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 […]
Zack Wheeler is expected to remain with Triple-A Las Vegas and throw his between-starts bullpen session with the Pacific Coast League club before joining the Mets on Monday in Atlanta. He is expected to pitch the nightcap of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Braves at Turner Field. Terry Collins said the nighttime assignment is designed to keep Wheeler in a routine. “We thought it would be better for him, more comfortable for him, to continue on what […]
David Wright spoke out about the overzealous campaign by the Mets to get him voted to the All Star Game. “It’s nice when the organization is trying so hard to do something for one of their players and I can’t thank them enough for that,” Wright said. “But at the same time, I’ve asked them to kind of back it down a little bit, especially with the stuff between innings. You appreciate what they’re trying […]
Looks like Harvey-Wheeler Day is still on… Thanks Mother Nature… Matt Musico from MetsMinors.net just posted the following: Zack Wheeler will be making his final minor league start tonight before getting promoted to the major leagues. He’s set to debut on Tuesday at Turner Field against the Atlanta Braves, about 45 minutes away from his childhood home. He takes the mound tonight against the Tacoma Rainiers at Cashman Field in Las Vegas, and Adam Rubin reported that he’ll […]
Poor Ike Davis… He gets demoted to Triple-A, deservedly so, and leaves for Las Vegas without commenting on his feelings or the matter. The obviously crushed first baseman kept his head down after the game on Sunday as he emptied his locker, packed his bags and headed for the airport. SNY sent their Baseball Insider Andy Martino to Vegas and asked Davis what was going through his mind after a couple of days to let […]
Updated by Joe D, You can put it in the books. Sandy Alderson strongly hinted today that Zack Wheeler will make his Mets and MLB debut on June 18 in Atlanta. “You could speculate and be fairly comfortable that you will see him pitch on that day.” The Mets have doubleheader that day and it could very well be a Harvey and Wheeler pairing for the Mets. Zoom, zoom.. Original Post Well, he definitely wasn’t […]
Updated by Joe D. 6/10 Adam Rubin reports: Seven weeks after fracturing his left foot, it looks like Travis d’Arnaud finally can shed the protective boot.

Updated by Satish Ram at 7:45 PM: Adam Rubin is reporting that first baseman Josh Satin, center fielder Collin Cowgill and lefthanded reliever Josh Edgin will be promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Ike Davis, Mike Baxter and Robert Carson who were all optioned to Triple-A after today’s 8-4 loss to the Marlins. Satin will be added to the 40-man roster to fill the empty spot left when Rick Ankiel was released yesterday. That means within the last 24 hours, […]
The New York Mets transferred RHP Jeurys Familia from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list. It’s just a procedural move to open a spot for RHP David Aardsma on the 40-man roster. Familia underwent surgery Wednesday to remove bone spurs from his right elbow and is likely out for the season. Original Post Terry Collins told reporters before tonight’s game that Jeurys Familia will likely miss the remainder of this season. “I […]
