Travis d’Arnaud hit his first home run since the first week of April tonight as the Binghamton Mets beat the Harrisburg Senators 3-2. The two-run homer was one of two hits for d’Arnaud who is now batting .286 (10-for-35) between Rookie League and Double-A since returning from a broken foot that saw him miss three months of the season. Asked whether the Mets intend to keep the 24-year old catcher at Double-A Binghamton for now, […]
Updated Post 7/31 According to Adam Rubin, Travis d’Arnaud could join the Mets when John Buck leaves the team to be with his wife for the birth of his child which is expected to happen tomorrow. I’m not buying this… Joe D. Prediction: Catcher Juan Centeno, who must be added to the 40 Man Roster will get the call, while D’Arnaud continues to rehab. Centeno must be protected from the Rule 5 Draft this fall. Original Post […]
Travis d’Arnaud met with team doctors in New York today and was cleared to play in minor league games beginning this week, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. D’Arnaud will run the bases on Tuesday and Wednesday, then play in his first game since early April on Thursday. If all goes good and and he can overcome months of rust, we should see him in a September call-up. Sandy Alderson says, more important than […]
The Mets started began the second half of the season by winning two of three against the Philadelphia Phillies. Things got off to a rough start on Friday night, as the Phillies beat the tar out of the Mets, but things got better for the orange and blue behind the two young pitchers of the future. Here are the 3N3 from this past weekend. Matt-Tastic: With the series tied at a game a piece, All […]
Last week, when I saw those words in my title leading off a paragraph about Kevin Plawecki, the first thing that came to my mind was that the author was obviously frequenting too many of the the wrong sites. Had he come to Metsmerized for the dope on Plawecki, he may have been talking about him for as long as I have. That said, Nathaniel Stoltz of FanGraphs puts Plawecki on his list of five […]
Adam Rubin released his weekly Farm Report at ESPN New York this morning, highlighting Matt den Dekker and his journey back from a wrist injury in spring training. He also provided injury updates on some of New York’s top prospects. Wilmer Flores had to exit Saturday’s game with the 51s early due to an ankle injury. While the injury is said to not be serious, Flores will not be participating in tonight’s Triple-A All-Star game, set to take place in […]
After hitting two more home runs last night in a 4-for-5 outburst for Triple-A Las Vegas, Wilmer Flores now has 12 homers and 74 RBIs halfway through the season. His batting line of .325/.361/.537 along with his 33 doubles and 51 runs scored, puts him among the PCL leaders in all of those offensive categories. He has nothing left to prove. Today, Flores took home the No. 6 spot on Baseball America’s latest Prospect Hot Sheet. […]
Baseball America revealed their top 50 midseason prospects today, as was compiled by J.J. Cooper. Both Noah Syndergaard and Travis d’Arnaud appeared on the list, at numbers 23 and 25, respectively. Of course, both of these minor leaguers were key components to the off-season trade Sandy Alderson made with the Toronto Blue Jays that sent R.A. Dickey north of the border. Each top prospect has a small blurb below there name, and here’s the one on Syndergaard: Improved breaking ball has made […]
I don’t know what to make of Terry Collins these days… His bias toward his veteran players is so blatant now that he makes no attempt whatsoever to hide it. This is the third time in two weeks that the Mets manager felt the need to forego any praise of a big hit by catcher Anthony Recker and instead issue his soliloquy on John Buck who was ejected for arguing balls and strikes. “We are […]
