Mets News and Notes: Brown, Dice-K, Centeno


Sayonara - Dice-K Going Back to Japan?

Mets News and Notes: Brown, Dice-K, Centeno

The Oakland Athletics announced that they have claimed outfielder Andrew Brown off waivers from the New York Mets. Brown appeared in 19 games for the Mets this season and batted just .182 with a .245 OBP and .546 OPS in 44 at-bats. Brown spent the majority of the year at Triple-A Las Vegas where he batted .283 with 21 home runs and 69 RBI in 103 games. He was not expected to be an option for the Mets bench next season.

Mike Vorkunov of NJ.com is also reporting that Daisuke Matsuzaka could be on his way back to pitching in Japan. According to Sports Hochi in Japan, the right-handed pitcher has a contract offer from the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks that would pay him approximately $3.5 million per season. Matsuzaka, 34, went 3-3 in 2014 with a 3.89 ERA in 34 appearances including nine starts.

Also, the Milwaukee Brewers have claimed catcher Juan Centeno off waivers from the Mets. In parts of two seasons, the defensive-minded backstop batted .225 in 40 at-bats with the Mets.

Mets News and Notes: Nimmo, Reynolds, Wright, Murphy, Duda, Familia


Mets News and Notes: Nimmo, Reynolds, Wright, Murphy, Duda, Familia

Reynolds, Nimmo Going to AFL Rising Stars Game
Outfielder Brandon Nimmo and shortstop Matt Reynolds will represent the Mets in Saturday's Arizona Fall League Rising Stars Game, which will be televised at 8:08 p.m. ET on MLB Network.

Nimmo is hitting .233 (10-for-43) with five RBIs and eight walks through 11 games.

Reynolds is hitting .278 (10-for-36) with three homers, nine RBIs and seven walks through 10 games.

Wright Almost ready to swing
David Wright, who finished the season inactive because of "weak" and "stretched-out" ligaments that failed to hold his non-throwing shoulder in place, is nearing completion of a rehab program intended to strengthen the area.

Wright is due to see a team doctor within two weeks, hoping to gain clearance to begin swinging a bat.

Testing the shoulder while swinging will determine whether it is stable enough to avoid surgery. Wright experienced looseness in the shoulder before getting shut down following a Sept. 8 game.

"Everything is going well and progressing, so hopefully I'll get good news then," Wright told ESPNNewYork.com about the planned doctor visit.

A statistical comparison was taken by ESPN for the platform seasons (year heading into second arbitration) and careers to that point of Lucas Duda, Brandon Moss and Garrett Jones
