Outfielder Chris Young, who missed the opening day game with a right quadriceps strain, is expected to return to the Mets lineup Wednesday night against the Nationals.

The Mets made room for Kyle Farnsworth on the 40-man roster by outrighting right-handed pitcher Ryan Reid to Triple-A Las Vegas. Farnsworth was added to the roster to take the place of Bobby Parnell, who officially went on the disabled list Wednesday.

The Mets acquired Reid from the Pirates in a December waiver claim.

Mets News and Notes: Mejia OK, Ike get Starts, Chris Young down, Murphy in Labor


Mets News and Notes:


Jenrry Mejia was examined by a team doctor and also threw a baseball Sunday and was deemed healthy, Terry Collins said.

The manager added that Mejia is all set to face the Cincinnati Reds on Friday at Citi Field.

Mejia had been struck with a line drive in the right forearm Friday in Montreal. X-rays there were negative, and he was diagnosed with inflammation.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Your Opening Day starter at first base for the Mets? It's Ike Davis.

Terry Collins said he selected Davis because of his favorable career numbers against Stephen Strasburg (.364, two homers in 11 at-bats).

Still, Collins said all three first basemen will play.

Josh Satin will start Game 2 against left-hander Gio Gonzalez. And Collins sounded like Duda would start Game 3.

Mets News: New Met Chris Young thinks 2014 Mets Outfield can be one of the Best


Mets News:


The Mets outfield is crowded with many guys that can play centerfield...

Terry Collins has not made any clues about who will get that role or what the composition of the outfield will be. Chris Young and Curtis Granderson are assured of everyday roles but Eric Young Jr. and Juan Lagares are battling for the third starting job.

"I don’t know where everybody is going to be," Collins said. "Again, there’s a lot of things happening between now and April 1st. I told Curtis the one thing you gotta do is get used to right field a little bit…We got four guys right now that can go catch it."

However it plays out, Young is confident the Mets' outfield can be among the best.

"I think we can be one of the best in baseball in the outfield," he said. "You’re talking about guys with a lot of experience out there, a lot of speed, guys with good arms."

Mets Rumors: Mets interested in Free Agent OF Chris Young


Mets Rumors:


According to Marc Carig of Newsday, The Mets are interested in free-agent OF Chris Young.

Young played in 107 games (375 plate appearances) for Oakland in 2013, batting .200 with a .280 OBP and 12 home runs. He’s a career .235 hitter with a .315 OBP over nearly 1,000 games, almost all of them in centerfield for the Arizona Diamondbacks. His best season came in 2010, where he hit .257/.341/.452 with 27 home runs, 91 RBI and 28 stolen bases.

He made $8.5 million last season, but will likely not command that much for his next deal.

Mets News and Notes: Feliciano still throwing, Young not signed, Turner in the lineup


Mets News and Notes:


Pedro Feliciano, who agreed to remain with the organization when the Mets passed on placing him on the Opening Day roster, will not appear in a minor league game anytime soon.

Pitching coach Dan Warthen said Feliciano will continue to work at the team's Port St. Lucie complex to build shoulder strength. Feliciano threw an inning in a simulated game Tuesday, as did Frank Francisco.

Before the Mets broke camp, Feliciano said he expected to pitch for Class A St. Lucie. But that is now not expected in the near future.

Despite the Mets losing Johan Santana for the season and Shaun Marcum getting examined today for a pain in his neck and shoulder, the Mets continue to refrain from pursuing Chris Young.

Young opted out with the Washington Nationals at the end of spring training after producing a 2.25 ERA in 16 Grapefruit League innings.

Mets News and Notes: Mejia, Bobble Heads, Bobby V, Young, Pena, Francisco, Gee, Edgin, Duda


Mets News and Notes:

Jenrry Mejia is due to land Friday morning and be at camp by midday now that his visa issue is resolved. Dan Warthen and Wally Backman both project Mejia as a future reliever, but the right-hander will be a starting pitcher again this year …

The Mets announced their full 2013 promotional schedule, which includes five bobblehead giveaways: Ron Darling (April 21), John Franco (May 25), Wright (June 30), Dwight Gooden (July 21) and Tom Seaver (Aug. 25).

Bobby Valentine reportedly will be the next athletic director at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut.

Ex-Met Chris Young signed a minor league deal with the Washington Nationals.

Mets farmhand Francisco Pena will play for his father Tony Pena on the Dominican Republic team in the World Baseball Classic.

Frank Francisco will begin tossing a baseball Monday after suffering elbow inflammation early in camp, Collins confirmed.

On Sunday against the University of Michigan, Dillon Gee will pitch in his first game since undergoing emergency surgery at last year’s All-Star break to repair a damaged artery in his pitching shoulder. Gee did get on a bullpen mound in September at Citi Field to allay concerns.
 “I accomplished what I wanted to last year, and that was to be able to come here with some peace of mind,” Gee told Andrew Keh in the Times. “Now I feel like I’m ready to compete again.”

Collins said left-hander Josh Edgin worked on a sinker during the offseason that should make him more effective against righty hitters. Lefties hit .164 and righties hit .263 against Edgin during his rookie season.

Lucas Duda will receive heavy playing time early in Grapefruit League play because he is working on a new stance, Collins said.

Rumor Mill: Mets still looking for Starting Pitching


Well, the Mets who were in pursuit of starting pitching after the departure of R.A. Dickey have lost out on Francisco Liriano to the Pittsburgh Pirates for big bucks considering. The Mets were hoping to land the big lefty on a one year contract..

So now the Mets are continuing their ongoing search for a fifth starter. The Mets according to Marc Carig of New York Newsday are in pursuit of RHP Carl Pavano. He also tweets that he hears the Mets also have interest in Shawn Marcum and Chris Young.

Free agent left-hander Joe Saunders is talking to the  Orioles, Mariners, and Padres according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). The Mets have expressed interest in him, but again he is looking for a multi year contract.

Rumor Mill: Grady Sizemore, Francisco Liriano, and Carl Pavano on Mets Radar



The Mets don’t have a legitimate everyday outfielder at this point. So far they have Mike Baxter, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Lucas Duda (wrist injury) and newly acquired Collin Cowhill, who are all mostly going to be platoon players.. The Mets are hitting the recycling bin once more by having interest in someone who hasn’t played in the majors since September 22, 2011,  former Indian Grady Sizemore..

SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt hears that the Mets are “very interested” in free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore. The 30-year-old didn’t play at all with the Indians in 2012 and is expected to be out until midseason next year following microfracture surgery on his right knee in September, so patience will be required by any team that signs him.

After having micro-fracture surgery on both of his knees since 2010, his days as a center fielder are likely over. Chances are he’ll have to settle for a one-year deal with a low guarantee or possibly a minor league deal.

Sizemore's Career:
