Eric Young extended his hitting streak to seven games last night, one shy of his career-high. Young is hitting .419 (13-31) during that current stretch. Young’s career-best is an eight-game hitting streak, September 6-13, 2010. Since joining the Mets on June 19, Young is batting .359 (14-39) with five runs scored, four doubles and six RBI. He has taken to the Mets and to left field like white on rice and has quickly become an integral part […]
Zack Wheeler did not throw his bullpen session on Thursday and instead spent the day working with Dan Warthen on altering his delivery so as not to tip his pitches as he was during his start against the White Sox. Regarding the changes they are looking to make, Warthen told ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin: “Open up his glove, keep it at the waist — kind of what we’ve done with [Jeremy] Hefner, kind of […]

John Buck wen’t 0-for-4 in last night’s win over the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. He struck out all four time to earn the dreaded Golden Sombrero. In my recap of the 3-0 win, I mentioned that it may be time to start giving Anthony Recker a few more starts – not so much because he’s that much better than Buck, I couldn’t honestly say that. But it would be good to find out exactly what […]
Shortstop Ruben Tejada is ready to begin a rehab assignment later this week for the GCL Mets, according to Terry Collins. Collins said Tejada will work his way up to Triple-A Las Vegas before completing his rehab and being activated. Tejada was placed on the DL on May 30 with a right quadriceps strain suffered while reaching for a foul popup. The Mets manager punted a question asking how he would fit in with Omar Quintanilla […]
In his weekly interview with WFAN Terry Collins relayed the information that Jonathon Niese is unlikely to require surgery on his partially torn rotator cuff. Collins, claiming to have spoken to Niese on the phone, said that the pitcher was feeling “tremendous.” “He is not going to need any surgery” Collins said. “Next week he is going to get another MRI to reassess how its doing and how he’s feeling, and hopefully after the other MRI […]
Juan Lagares is covering lots of ground in center field and Mark Simon of ESPN New York has the clear and convincing evidence of just how much better Lagares has been over every other Mets center fielder. “The average center fielder makes an ‘out of zone’ catch every 14 innings,” he says. “Juan Lagares has made one every seven innings, basically amounting to one per game.” “Those catches add to Lagares’ value, though they’ve come at a cost […]
This morning on WFAN, Craig Carton was ripping Ike Davis over a report from a source who told him that Davis went ballistic in the clubhouse after the Mets opted to promote Zach Lutz instead of him. “How can they promote him over ****ing me,” he reportedly screamed at manager Wally Backman.. He became such a distraction, that Backman called Sandy Alderson to intervene and calm the slighted and infuriated first baseman down. Davis homered […]
