Mets News: Matt Harvey to DL with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow

Mets News:

In a devastating blow to the New York Mets, right-hander Matt Harvey has been diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow, general manager Sandy Alderson announced Monday.

Harvey will be placed on the disabled list and prescribed rest for now. Surgery has not been ruled out, the team said.

If Harvey required Tommy John surgery, he would miss most if not all of the 2014 season.

Harvey was sent Monday morning to the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan after complaining of fatigue and mentioning discomfort following a 102-pitch start Saturday against the Detroit Tigers. As part of that exam, Dr. David Altchek had Harvey undergo an MRI that revealed the tear.

Mets Pitcher Johan Santana Shut Down For Season

Mets' starting pitcher Johan Santana has been shut down for the rest of the 2012 season due to inflammation in his lower back. The Mets placed Santana on the DL today, but surgery is not needed. The best thing Johan can do is rest and make sure he is back strong for next season.

After missing all of last season following major shoulder surgery, Santana has come back strong this season. So strong, that on June 1st, he made Mets history. He threw the first ever no-hitter in franchise history against the St.Louis Cardinals. Since then, it has been a struggle for the 33-year old veteran. He has gone 3-7 with an ERA of 8.27 since throwing the no-hitter.

I wouldn't overreact to GM Sandy Alderson's decision to shut him down. With the Mets rapidly falling out of playoff contention, there is really no need to risk further injury this season. Having their ace healthy and ready to go next season is vital to this team if they plan on making a pushing for a playoff berth.

With Santana being shut down for the season, this gives the Mets a chance to call up some young pitching prospects, like Jeurys Familia and Jenrry Mejia. Lets just hope that Johan Santana comes to spring training in 2013 healthy, and ready to go.

Mets Shortstop Ruben Tejada placed on the DL

Ruben Tejada’s left eye had a redish-purple blotch under it, a reminder of his head clunking off the infield dirt after a fall on Sunday. It sounded for awhile that Terry Collins thought he broke a bone in his face, but that was not the case.

Tejada was in discomfort in his right quadricep that sent him to the disabled list this afternoon, leaving the Mets without their starting shortstop for at least the next two weeks.

The club decided to de-activate him before facing the Phillies Monday night. Tejada, 22, reported lingering symptoms, which was enough to convince the team to shut him down.

“That is exactly why we did it,” manager Terry Collins said. “Because we didn’t want it to be more than two weeks. But we’re hopeful that’s all it will be.”

Mets will use Taxi-Squad of Valdespin and Hefner, Cedeno expected to Hit DL

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY,  Ronny Cedeno is expected to land on the disabled list before today's doubleheader.

Middle infielder (and now center fielder) Jordany Valdespin as well as right-hander Jeremy Hefner are due to be at Citi Field as part of a taxi squad. They are allowed to be with the team for 24 hours without being activated.

The expectation is Hefner would be activated to back up Miguel Batista. Then the Mets can add Valdespin in that spot after getting through the doubleheader.

The taxi squad is new under the collective bargaining agreement. Josh Satin similarly was brought to Philly last road trip without being activated because of uncertainty about David Wright's pinkie. No injury uncertainty needs to exist, though. Any taxi squad player just needs to leave the following day if he's not joining the 25-man roster.

Valdespin, 24, was hitting .276 with two homers and seven RBIs in 76 at-bats with Triple-A Buffalo. He has appeared in center field -- a new position for him in the Mets organization -- in 14 of his 17 games.

It's Official, Andres Torres to the DL, Kirk Nieuwenhuis expected to make his entrance

One game into their season and the New York Mets are already sending a player to the disabled list.

New center fielder Andres Torres will land on the 15-day DL before Saturday's game with a strained left calf. It's the same injury that sidelined Torres for two weeks in spring training.

Acquired from San Francisco in December, Torres re-injured the calf ranging back to cut off a ball hit by Tyler Pastornicky in the seventh inning of Thursday's season-opening victory against the Atlanta Braves.
Injuries limited the 34-year-old Torres to 112 games a year ago.

The Mets are expected to recall outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis from Triple-A Buffalo. Nieuwenhuis, 24, will join the big league club for the first time. He hit .298 with six home runs and 17 doubles in 53 games for Buffalo last season before shoulder surgery put him on the shelf.

Jon Niese and Scott Hairston will end up on the DL

The Mets endured their fifth straight loss, 9-4, and second in a row to the Phillies, who have outscored them, 19-4, in the two games at Citizens Bank Park.

But the more damaging news came after the game, when Manager Terry Collins said Jon Niese and Scott Hairston would both probably end up on the disabled list after each strained a rib cage muscle.

Niese, who gave up eight runs before exiting in the fifth inning, first hurt the muscle while swinging during his last start Aug. 16. The Mets moved his scheduled start back a day, and Niese felt healthy enough to pitch.

But he felt pain while trying to throw a fastball by Hunter Pence in the third. “I kind of let it go, and that’s when I felt it,” Niese said.

Hairston hurt himself stretching to reach a low slider in the seventh.

The loss of Niese puts the Mets in a tough situation, as his next start is scheduled for Monday, when the team has a doubleheader. Collins said he would call up two pitchers from the minors for the day.

“We don’t have any room for just riding it out for the next 10 days while he gets better,” Collins said of Niese.

Carlos Beltran back on the DL , ...for the Giants this time!

Carlos Beltran, who has an injured hand, landed on the disabled list with the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday. He had not played since Aug. 7.

Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports Beltran traveled to Cleveland for a second opinion. Had also had received an additional cortisone shot.

Beltran had been hitting .244 with no homers and two RBIs in 45 at-bats since the trade for minor league right-hander Zack Wheeler.

Enemy Watch: Aww....Shane Victorino goes on DL and will miss All-Star Game

Shane Victorino may have won MLB's "Final Vote" for the All-Star Game, but the Phillies center fielder won't be playing in Phoenix next week.

The Phillies placed him on the 15-day disabled list Friday and called up infielder Pete Orr from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Victorino sprained a ligament in his right thumb and hasn't played since Sunday, so the move is retroactive to July 4.

Although Victorino won the fan's final vote, manager Bruce Bochy will have the autonomy to replace Victorino.

Although Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates deserves it, Andre Ethier of the Dodgers will be a contender, as well. Ethier was on the "Final Vote" ballot, which the manager has a significant say in selecting.

Victorino is hitting .303/.376/.524 with nine home runs this season.

Angel Pagan on the comeback trail from DL

Angel Pagan is nearing a return from the disabled list, but Terry Collins said he's unsure whether the center fielder will be activated after two more games with Class A St. Lucie. The alternative appears to be having Pagan make an intermediate stop with Triple-A Buffalo to face higher-caliber pitching.

Since resuming a rehab assignment, Pagan has played two games with St. Lucie, going 1-for-8 with a homer and a walk. He played seven innings in center field Wednesday, then served as DH in a Thursday matinée.

"He's going to play a couple of more games and we're going to see how his progress is to decide whether or not he's ready to come here, or do we need to move him to Buffalo or someplace else," Collins said. "I always believe there's nothing wrong with seeing a little bit better caliber pitching before you come back here. So Sandy [Alderson] and I will talk about that."

Pipe Dream: Chris Young Opts for Season Ending Surgery

Placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury earlier this week, Mets right-hander Chris Young has opted for surgery and will miss the remainder of the season.

Young’s career has been filled with injuries, which is why he’s never thrown even 180 innings in a season and has logged a total of just 222 innings during the past four years.

He made just four starts with the Padres last season and was shut down by the Mets after the same number of starts this year, but did go 3-0 with a 1.43 ERA in those eight outings.

Because of his lengthy injury history Young could manage only an incentive-laden one-year contract as a free agent, so the Mets are on the hook for just $1.1 million, which actually isn’t such a bad price for four very good starts.

Guess we will see more of  Dillon Gee this year and see what he is made of.  Hard Luck Jenrry Mejia probably would have been called up if he was not injured.

Ike Davis on the 15 Day DL, F-Mart Called Up

The Mets placed Ike Davis on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a left ankle sprain and bone bruise.

He will be replaced on the roster by outfielder Fernando Martinez.

Davis suffered the injury in a collision with David Wright on a pop up in the top of the fourth inning of the Mets’ 4-3 win over the Rockies on Tuesday night. While the rest of the team remained in Colorado for Thursday’s rain-delayed series finale, Davis was sent back to New York for tests. Davis is leading the team in RBIs with 25. Daniel Murphy is expected to fill in at first base.

Martinez was batting .292 with three home runs and seven RBIs in 19 games for Triple-A Buffalo.

Pedro Beato on the DL with elbow tendinitis

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL - FEBRUARY 24:  RY 24:  RY ...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
The New York Mets have placed right-hander Pedro Beato on the 15-day disabled list with tendinitis in his pitching elbow.

The move made Wednesday is retroactive to May 2. The Mets purchased the contract of left-hander Mike O'Connor from Triple-A Buffalo to take Beato's place in New York's bullpen.

A December Rule 5 draft pick out of the Orioles system, Beato has not allowed an earned run in 17 innings over 11 appearances this season. The 24-year-old rookie from New York pitched a career-high three innings Sunday against Philadelphia. He felt discomfort for the first time Tuesday.

His injury comes two days after the Mets learned top prospect Jenrry Mejia has a torn elbow ligament.

Parnell has blood clot , not aneurysm

Bobby Parnell
The Mets finally got at least a little bit of good news yesterday, when they learned that Bobby Parnell's numbness in his right middle finger was not caused by an aneurysm.

The right-hander had an angiogram that showed what doctors had suspected on Wednesday, that a blood clot likely was the reason for the injury that landed Parnell on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Wednesday, to make room for Jason Bay.

"It's as positive as we could have hoped for," general manager Sandy Alderson said before the Mets 9-1 victory over the Astros last night at Citi Field.

Mets Minor League Prospect Fernando Martinez Injured Again

Fernando MartinezImage by Keith Allison via Flickr
Outfielder Fernando Martinez landed on the disabled list with Triple-A Buffalo due to a right hamstring strain. Infielder Luis Hernandez took Martinez's roster spot with the Bisons.

Hernandez cleared waivers at the end of spring training after failing to make the 25-man roster and agreed to remain with the organization. He's expected to primarily play second base with Buffalo.

Martinez, 22, has averaged only 78 games a professional regular season because of assorted injuries.
