Anthony DiComo is reporting that Travis d’Arnaud has been cleared to begin a running program, after he saw doctors today. That’s great news, and now you can get your minds running about the possibility of Travis d’Arnaud catching Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler in September. D’arnaud should be heading to Port St. Lucie to get his rehab started. I’m sure all Mets fans are hoping that his rehab goes quickly and successfully. The acquisition of a [...]
In the second round of the MLB draft on Thursday, the Mets passed on Stanford outfielder Austin Wilson. Wilson would have been a risky selection, but he also had a very high upside. Instead the Mets drafted high school pitcher Andrew Church. Church could turn out to be solid pick in the future, but I feel the Mets made a mistake passing on Wilson. Austin Wilson is an extremely talented outfielder, and he had one [...]
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 [...]
When the 48th pick came up yesterday, many people were clamoring for the Mets to take Austin Wilson. Not many people believed that Wilson, a right-handed hitting outfielder from Stanford would drop to the 48th overall pick in the draft. The Mets instead took Andrew Church, a projectable right-handed pitcher out of Basic High School in Nevada. The Mariners took Wilson with the next pick. I sorted through tweets and comments, as people were pouring [...]
With the 48th pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, the Mets selected RHP Andrew Church, who has committed to the University of San Diego. The talented young man is a right-hander out of Palo Verde High School in Nevada. Listed at 6’3” / 199 LBs, Church still has some growing to do. His secondaries are below average right now, but his body projects out to add a little more bulk. His fastball should pick up [...]
The Mets have drafted 72 outfielders in the first 5 rounds (top 100 picks) during the 48 year history of the MLB draft. Of those 72, 18 made it to the majors. Of those 18, six of them enjoyed what can only be described as cups of coffee with a variety of teams. They were, John Gibbons (24th overall 1980), John Christensen (38th overall 1981), Terry Blocker (4th overall 1981), Stan Jefferson (20th overall 1983), Rod Gaspar [...]
I thought it was funny that after I wrote how Nieuwenhuis’ second home run on Tuesday would have been gone in any MLB park, that Terry Collins asked Wally Backman about Kirk’s home runs and said the following to reporters before last night’s game. “I talked to Wally today for quite a while,” Collins said. “He said they were legitimate. He didn’t care where he was playing, they were homers.” Backman also told Collins that [...]
CESAR PUELLO, RF BOOM OR BUST? Boom or Bust is a feature on our companion site MetsMinors.Net, where we ask our minor league writers to sound off on whether or not they think a particular Mets prospect will be a boom…or a bust. John B. Puello is an electrifying power hitter with some interesting tools. Puello’s team leading seven home runs and 31 RBI’s (tied with Allan Dykstra) may not be that much of a surprise, [...]
Jim Callis and Ben Badler of Baseball America released their final Top 500 MLB Draft Preview complete with analysis and scouting reports on each player for subscribed users. The Mets have the 11th overall pick in the draft, which is where BA has Hunter Renfroe going. MMO’s Craig Lerner profiled Renfroe two weeks ago as a potential Mets selection. OF HUNTER RENFROE, MISSISSIPPI STATE Player Profile: Position: OF/C Height: 6-1 Weight: 216 Bats/Throws: R-R Birthdate: Jan. [...]
