METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mets Minors: Steven Matz and Noah Syndergaard are knocking on Flushing’s door

This season we’ve seen Rafael Montero, Kevin Plawecki, Jack Leathersich and Dilson Herrera ascend from AAA to the majors.  The two biggest names still in Sandy Alderson’s back pocket are still out in Vegas and they have taken things up several notches recently. I’m talking, of course, about Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz.  They are the two pitchers you’ve heard...

Featured Post: Matz Is Ready For The Mets, But Are The Mets Ready For Him?

Mets pitching prospect Steven Matz was his usual electrifying self again on Thursday night allowing just one first inning run and then shutting down the Reno Aces the rest away while striking out 12 batters in seven innings in the process. Matz toyed with the Aces using his 95 MPH fastball for nine of his dozen punchouts. In his previous start, the Mets lefty took a no-hitter into...

Gut Reaction: Nationals 1, Mets 0 (5/3/15)

The Mets dropped their second straight 1-0 game Sunday afternoon against the Nationals.  Since winning 11 in a row, the Mets are now 3-7. Dillon Gee was the hard-luck loser.  He didn’t pitch particularly good but anytime as a SP you give up one run and take the loss, it’s a tough one to swallow. Alex Torres was phenomenal in relief, pitching two scoreless innings and pitching...

We Will Know Mets’ True Feelings About Flores On Tuesday

It is a measure of how current GM Sandy Alderson – and the Mets’ brass in previous years – mislead fans that some of us are skeptical of the explanation given for the recent benching of shortstop Wilmer Flores. FLORES: Resting again. (Getty) It was no secret the Mets tried to obtain a shortstop during the winter, and several times Alderson cracked wise at Flores’ expense...

Juan Lagares On Fast Track To Stardom

Mets centerfielder Juan Lagares is already recognized as a defensive star, making one highlight reel catch after another game after game, and earning his first Gold Glove last season. However, Lagares is beginning to get a lot of attention for his vast improvement at the plate and is quickly developing into one of the best all-around players on the team. Lagares has been very reliable...

New York Mets: Dilson Herrera time?

Dilson Herrera is a highly touted prospect, as the second baseman has raked in the minors. Is he finally taking over the second baseman job for the New York Mets? Every game matters for these New York Mets; that is what a winning April will entail. However, the Mets have been sputtering as of late, losing five of their last eight games. Middle-infield defense has played a part,...

Wright More Than A Week Away

As they should, the Mets are treating David Wright‘s hamstring injury with kid gloves and perhaps learning from experience, aren’t making any projections about his return. GM Sandy Alderson told reporters Friday having Wright back next weekend in Philadelphia “seems a little aggressive.” Wright went on the disabled list April 15 with what was called a right hamstring strain...

Surprise, Surprise: Who’s in First?

The month of April is unpredictable. For the casual fan, it’s the first month of the baseball season. For the dedicated baseball follower, it’s the fourth month of the year (there is no off-season). There are hot streaks, and there are cold streaks. There are those players that never miss a beat, and then there are players that get hurt (not on purpose, of course) and heavily...

Wright Still A Week Away From Returning, Mets Deny Any Setback

Mets Captain and 3rd baseman David Wright was eligible to come off the DL on Thursday, but will be out until next Friday at the earliest. The team insisted it’s not because of any setbacks but because they want to be very careful with him, making sure that he doesn’t rush back. Wright is still rehabbing in Port St Lucie, but did not participate in workouts on Thursday and...

New York Mets promote red-hot Dilson Herrera

In a surprise move on Thursday the New York Mets have announced that they are promoting infielder Dilson Herrera. The Mets are sputtering on both sides of the ball, losing 5 of their last 7 games following their 11 game winning streak. The middle infield defense has been especially suspect with 11 of the team’s 17 errors coming from Daniel Murphy or Wilmer Flores. Herrera represnts...

Mets Wrap: DeGrom Beaten; Wright Not Ready; Montero To DL

Well, today sure did stink for Mets, whose day began with the news Rafael Montero will go on the disabled list and David Wright is at least a week from coming off it. The day ended with Washington ripping Jacob deGrom and sending the Mets an 8-2 message they are far from ready to concede the NL East. The loss was the Mets’ 15th in their last 16 games against Washington at Citi...

New York Mets: Leathersich promoted, Montero back to Vegas

Rafael Montero seems to have become the New York Mets’ official yo-yo this season. After making his first start of the season on Tuesday, Montero was immidiately sent packing back to Las Vegas, just one day after he was called up. This is now Montero’s second demotion in the first month of the season. He originally made the team as a reliever before being demoted in order to...

Mets Minors: Dilson Herrera is knocking at the door

Kevin Plawecki is already in the majors, proving the bevvy of talent that was stock-piled in AAA.  Next in the queue waiting for a shot at the majors is Dilson Herrera.  How long it takes him to reach the majors depends on many things but, at this point most of them are beyond his control.
