Mets Rumors: Mets might give Bobby Abreu or Edgardo Alfonso a shot at hitting coach, Wally Backman back to Vegas?


Mets Rumors:


According to Mike Puma of the NY Post, recently retired Bobby Abreu is a potential candidate for the job of hitting coach, but the Mets might also consider Edgardo Alfonzo, who returned to the organization this year as a coach for Single-A Brooklyn.

Alfonzo was unsure before this season if he wanted to dive back into baseball full time, but enjoyed his experience at Brooklyn and likely would be interested in the major league hitting coach position if offered to him.

The 40-year-old Alfonzo is among the most popular players in franchise history, and hit .284 in a 12-year career that also included stops with the Giants, Angels and Blue Jays.

But the Mets are high on Abreu, who has hinted at a desire to become a hitting coach at the major league level. Abreu indicated Sunday he has business ventures in Venezuela to which he would like to attend, but also hinted he would be open to discussing the hitting coach position with the Mets if it opened. The Mets could also consider Triple-A Las Vegas hitting coach George Greer.

Mets Rumors: Mets set to shop Murphy and Pitchers to get Big Outfield Bat


Mets Rumors:
Maybe last AB?

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, the Mets will look to shop Daniel Murphy this offseason for Big Outfield Bat.

According to the report, hints show that the Mets have showed no inclination to engage Daniel Murphy's representatives in extension talks. So that could indicate there is a strong possibility Murphy will get traded this winter, especially if a team in need of a first or third baseman is willing to offer a comparably valued outfielder with some power.

He also suggests that the Mets might not be inclined to shop Bartolo Colon because of age and salary ($11M), but could also shop either Jon Niese or Dillon Gee instead. Reason being Colon is a innings eater and he did win 15 games...

Setback to Niese being traded is that he is the lone southpaw in the Mets rotation until prospect Steven Matz is deemed ready. He is due to earn $7 million in 2015 and $9 million in 2016. A couple of team options, at $10 million and $11 million, follow.

Gee earned $3.625 million in 2014 and is again eligible for arbitration this offseason. He remains under team control through the 2016 season.

Mets News and Notes: Niese Heart Update, Nieuwenhuis Released From Hospital, Murphy Hank Aaron Award Nominee, deGrom Odds for ROY, EX Met Gardenhire Fired in Minny


Mets News and Notes:


The Mets initially indicated Jon Niese would see a doctor on Monday for a follow-up after departing Saturday's game with a rapid heartbeat. However, Niese is doing fine and intends to head home to Ohio without the need for an examination.

Niese also had rapid heartbeats on the mound during games in 2011 and '12. In those instances, he was required to wear a Holter monitor to determine if any heart irregularities existed.

Although a surgical procedure known as ablation initially was recommended, Niese ultimately was examined after the second instance at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic. They advised him that no procedure was required.
*******************************************
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who was hospitalized Saturday with an infection, is expected to be discharged Tuesday.

The belief is the infection was related to kidney stones.

Nieuwenhuis is said to be feeling a lot better.

Nieuwenhuis will be out of options in 2015 and figures to contribute off the bench, provided he is not part of any offseason trades. Nieuwenhuis, 27, hit .259 with three homers and 16 RBIs in 112 at-bats this season.
