Jhonny Peralta is now eligible to return to the Detroit Tigers’ active roster after serving his suspension for his part in the Biogenesis scandal. However, when he does come back it likely won’t be as a shortstop according to beat writers and he will begin a transition to left field. Peralta has never played the outfield in his 11-year major-league career, but the Tigers are confident that he has the instincts and skills to make the […]
MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that Cuban prospect Jose Dariel Abreu has officially established residency in Haiti according to what a source told Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com. Essentially, Abreu has cleared the first hurdle toward signing with a major league team. He now has to file the proper paperwork with MLB and once he does that, he will be declared a free agent. The Red Sox, Rangers, Giants, Mets, White Sox, Pirates, and Marlins are all possible […]
Which Mets rookie has impressed you the most this season? Joe S. - Zack Wheeler has impressed me the most. He came with a ton of expectations and has shown improvement with each outing. If he can match Harvey’s focus he will be a force to be reckoned with. Rob C. – Wheeler for toughing it out and proving those who said he wasn’t ready wrong. Jacob – Most people will say Juan Lagares, and I agree, but […]
John B. asks… Do you really believe the Mets will spend this offseason or that they will contend in 2014? Joe D. replies… In a word, yes. I do believe they will spend as they do have many areas they need to address, and they are fresh out of All Star caliber players to trade as well as top performing players like a Marlon Byrd. They will add many players through free agency. However, I […]
Marlon Byrd may be gone, but he still may have a big impact on the Mets going forward. You see, Before departing the Mets in a trade to the Pirates last week, the veteran Byrd told his Southern California neighbor Josh Satin that he will spend time this offseason teaching him to play the outfield, according to the New York Post. Satin, who has been mainly a corner infielder throughout his pro career, understands that the […]
We all know the deal by now: Juan Lagares is pretty good in the outfield. No, scratch that — he’s probably the best defensive center fielder I have seen on the Mets since Carlos Beltran. He takes great routes to balls, accelerates with ease, and packs a cannon for an arm. He’s always been touted as a potential prospect in the Mets system and the guys here at MMO have always liked him as well. […]
With the Mets trading Marlon Byrd to the Pittsburgh Pirates today, the door is left open for one of the biggest enigmas in the organization: Matt den Dekker. Den Dekker, 26, was a fifth-round draft pick in 2010 after an illustrious career at the University of Florida. The outfielder gradually rose through the ranks of the minor leagues before having a breakout first half in 2012 with Binghamton, hitting .340/.397/.563 with 21 doubles, four triples, […]
Yesterday, after the team recalled Lucas Duda from Triple-A Las Vegas and optioned outfielder Mike Baxter back to the minors, the former everyday left fielder for the Mets was all smiles. “Anytime you’re in the big leagues everything is good,” Duda said. ”I wasn’t hitting too good in my rehab assignment, so it is what it is. I’m just glad to be back. I’m glad to be here and a part of the team. I’ll play anywhere.” […]
YES!!! Mets righthander Dillon Gee credits his improved performance to his defense because he doesn’t have to be afraid to pitch to contact, he especially singles out Juan Lagares. “It gives you confidence to keep attacking because you know you’ve got guys out there that are playing hard and making all the plays for you,” Gee said. ”Juan tracks down everything out there in centerfield. It helps having that. Other than that, I’m throwing the ball […]
