Terry Collins told Mike Francesa on WFAN on Wednesday, that they might consider calling Zack Wheeler up to the Major Leagues to make his debut, if the back end of the rotation doesn’t improve soon. Jeremy Hefner, Dillon Gee and Aaron Laffey – You’ve all been warned. Or maybe not. Collins also said yesterday that it was unclear when exactly Wheeler might be called up. “Wheeler could be an option soon? I wouldn’t say soon,” Collins said to reporters. […]
Update by Joe D. at 2:20 PM Well that didn’t take long… The Mets announced that Juan Centeno has been promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Travis d’Arnaud who was officially placed on the DL moments ago. Centeno will get the majority of the starts while Landon Powell will continue to remain the backup. Now read about how Mitch just speculated that would likely happen about 30 minutes ago, as well as his other […]
According to Mark Hale of the New York Post, Triple-A manager Wally Backman believes Zack Wheeler is not far away from being promoted to the Mets despite his rough outing on Thursday, and drew comparisons to Matt Harvey. “He is the same spot Matt Harvey was at last year, I would say,” Backman said of Wheeler in a phone interview with The Post Friday. “It’s a matter of command. I think it’s going to be a […]
Updated 4:00 PM by Mitch Petanick Domingo Tapia had a very forgettable outing today in Grapefruit League play. Tapia pitched two innings, allowing four runs on four hits, two of which were home runs. Sounds scary when you read the stat line, but remember that Tapia is still a lower level prospect who was pitching against major league hitters that are just about ready for regular season play. And by lower level prospect, I do not mean talent wise, I […]
There are two no-brainers in place for the Mets with their latest injury news. The first was the slam-dunk Shaun Marcum would be injured. The surprise was it happened before the team broke camp, but considering the shape he reported in, well, maybe not so much. The second is the inevitable early clamor for the Mets to promote prospect Zack Wheeler, which should be an emphatic NO WAY.Manager Terry Collins told reporters today in Port St. Lucie, but he has […]
The last 2 years we have heard that when the Mets traded Carlos Gomez, Phil Humber, Deolis Guerra and Kevin Mulvey for Johan Santana, that the trade killed the farm system. The Mets, and for some reason the media, told us this trade while it was necessary and important, completely decimated the farm system. This trade slowed down the future of the Mets. Much like a lot of other things the Mets say, this is […]
For the last 4 years we have been hearing about Fernando “F-Mart” Martinez. The 16 year old was praised as the future of the New York Mets. F-Mart was the 5 tool player that the Mets were going to make into their next superstar. There were growing pains of course, the last couple of seasons F-Mart was injured. Some were wondering if F-Mart would live up to his expectations. The 2009 Mets as we all […]
The Mets have announced their lineup for tonight’s game against the Phillies and it’s the same lineup that won the game for us last night. I’m not concerned about that, they won the game but there are two players who will be sitting on the bench tonight that do concern me: Daniel Murphy and Fernando Martinez who did not play last night either. I understand that both guys are lefties and thePhillies decided to put […]
