Mets News and Notes: Lagares Update - Granderson Return? - More Recker - Seinfeld Night - Colon Back - Young Return


Mets News and Notes:


Juan Lagares, who underwent an MRI on Tuesday for his pulled right hamstring, believes the injury is not severe.

Lagares told the Star-Ledger that team trainers, briefed on the MRI results, believe it is only a one to two week injury.

Lagares is on the 15-day DL, so he will not be eligible to return until April 30. He departed Monday's game in the seventh inning.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
After Anthony Recker homered and doubled in the Mets’ 5-2 win against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Terry Collins suggested he likely would begin giving the backup catcher more playing time.

Recker lifted his average to .286 (4-for-14) with two walks. He has homered in two of his three starts behind the plate.

Meanwhile, Travis d’Arnaud is hitting .154 (6-for-39) with one homer and two RBIs.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Curtis Granderson literally offered a thumbs up in the clubhouse when asked how his first action since being forced from Monday's game went.

Granderson, pinch-hitting for Dillon Gee in the eighth, grounded out to second base in the Mets' eventual 5-2 win against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

He had departed Monday's game in the sixth inning with bruises to his left wrist, ribs and knee after colliding with the outfield wall earlier in that game.

Terry Collins expects Granderson will return to the starting lineup Friday, when the Mets open a series at Citi Field against the Atlanta Braves.

Mets Stat Facts: Anthony Recker, Eric Young, Matt den Dekker, Top of the Order Domination


Mets Stat Facts:

Birthday Recker
Anthony Recker became the second Mets player to homer in his birthday on the last 10 seasons, and the first to do so since Carlos Beltran homered on his 31st birthday in 2008. The last to homer and reach base at least three times, as Recker did, was Jeromy Burnitz on his 34th birthday in 2003.

Top of the order domination
Each of the first three hitters in the Mets lineup on Thursday (Young, Daniel Murphy and Andrew Brown) had multiple hits and multiple RBIs. It's unusual for the Mets to get that kind of production out of each of their top three hitters. The multi-hit, multi-RBI combo had only been done three times previously, the last coming in 2006, also against the Phillies. The hitters that day were Jose Reyes, Paul Lo Duca and Beltran.

Elias Sports Bureau Stat of the Series
Eric Young surpassed 30 steals for the season for the first time this week. Eric's father had nine seasons of 30 or more steals. The Youngs are the fifth father-son pair to each swipe 30 bases in a season. The others are the Alomars (Sandy Sr. and Roberto), the Bonds (Bobby and Barry), the Cruz's (Jose Sr. and Jr.) and the Wills (Maury and Bump).

Obscure Stat of the Series
Matt den Dekker became the third player in Mets history to go 0-for-5 in his major-league debut, joining John Gibbons (1984) and Tito Navarro (1993). Den Dekker also became the first Met with a stolen base in his first major-league game since Josh Thole in 2009.

Mets Rumors: Mets send up three players, More moves on the way?


Mets Rumors:


The Mets have moved catcher Anthony Recker, outfielder Matt den Dekker and left-hander Robert Carson from Triple-A Las Vegas to New York to have players available should a trade or trades be consummated.

Now that the Mets have completed a trade for the Byrd/Buck tandem, I would not be surprised to see Feliciano Traded as well.

At least five Mets players are going through the waiver process and Feliciano's name has been mentioned by ESPN.

So the Mets can have another trade in the works.

The Mets have waived the white flag and they want to see what they got or they don't got... Keeping Byrd and Buck on the bench did not go in favor of the players...and they are on a better path that is in contention right now.

Mets News: Travis d'Arnaud to remain will big club, Recker Optioned to Triple-A


Mets News:


Travis d'Arnaud will remain with the major league club, the Mets announced after Monday's 6-1 win against the Minnesota Twins. Anthony Recker has been optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas, presumably until rosters expand Sept. 1.

The Mets needed to make the decision with John Buck set to return from a three-day paternity leave on Tuesday.

"In our opinion -- and this is Sandy [Alderson] and I and the coaches' opinion -- the only way this guy is going to improve is to be here," Terry Collins said. "He'll work with John Buck ... to learn from certainly that quality veteran."

D'Arnaud is 0-for-7 with five walks through three major league games.

"Even though he hasn't got a hit yet, he's been on four or five times because he works the count," Collins said. "So he brings a lot to the table."

While d'Arnaud is due to get the bulk of the playing time, Collins indicated Buck will not get buried on the bench.

"They're going to both play," Collins said. "... John Buck deserves some playing time, and he's going to get playing time. I'll discuss that when I get to see John."

Recker is hitting .193 with five homers and 16 RBIs through 109 at-bats this season.

Mets News and Notes: Wright/Dickey Contracts, Backman, Recker


Mets News and Notes:

The Mets have yet to have discussions with representatives for David Wright and R.A. Dickey about years and dollars on contract extensions, according to the Daily News.

Both players have team options for 2013.

It stands to reason at this point that both players' options will be picked up shortly after the World Series to keep them under the Mets' control while the sides talk about longer-term deals.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wally Backman will remain the Mets' Triple-A manager for 2013.

Backman managed Buffalo to a 67-76 record this past season, in his third season managing in the minors for the organization. The Mets' Triple-A affiliate is moving to Las Vegas for next season.

There was no turnover on the Mets' major league coaching staff.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Mets have claimed right-hitting catcher Anthony Recker off waivers from the Chicago Cubs.

Recker, 29, has a .152 average with one homer and four RBIs in 66 career major league at-bats with Oakland and Chicago spanning the past two seasons.

The move gives the Mets one righty-hitting option in spring training, although Recker likely provides depth at Triple-A.
