Mets News: Andrew Brown to be called up, bullpen arm to go down Thursday

Mets News:

According to ESPN, the Mets have summoned Andrew Brown from Triple-A Las Vegas in order to restore the bench to its customary five players.

He will travel to Chicago on Wednesday, but will not be activated until Thursday's series finale. The Mets will play with an extra bullpen arm for one more game.

Brown went 2-for-2 off the bench in Tuesday's 6-5 Pacific Coast League loss to Reno. That raised his average to .359 with 13 homers and 31 RBIs in 142 Triple-A at-bats this season.

Brown opened the season with the Mets. He was demoted April 21 when the Mets added Bobby Abreu. Brown hit .185 with one homer and five RBIs in the 27 early season at-bats in the majors.

Most Likely either Buddy Carlyle or Dana Eveland will be sent back down...

Mets News: Mets send down Matt den Dekker to make room for Dana Eveland

Mets News:

In order to add extra arm Dana Eveland from Triple-A Las Vegas, the Mets have demoted Matt den Dekker and will play down a position player.

The Mets and Philadelphia Phillies have played consecutive 14-inning games -- the first teams to do so on back-to-back days since the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cleveland Indians June 20-21, 2003, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Hence the need for the extra arm.

Den Dekker had only limited playing time since a May 26 promotion coinciding with Eric Young Jr. landing on the disabled list. Den Dekker appeared in three games off the bench, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

Mets News and Notes: Mets Scolded for Leaving Field Early?, Familia not balking, No DL for Lagares, DeGrom impressive, despite no wins yet, Eveland on the way...

Mets News and Notes:

Mets Scolded for Leaving Field Early?
The Mets knew they would prevail in a challenge, but they still were not supposed to leave the field. And they got a tongue-lashing as a result.

In Saturday's 14-inning win over the Phillies, second-base umpire Doug Eddings ruled Domonic Brown safe on a two-out steal attempt in the bottom of the fifth.

Mets manager Terry Collins challenged the ruling. And once the Mets saw the replay on the scoreboard and concluded they were in the right, they left the field, even though the umpiring crew had yet to formally reverse the safe call.

“They scolded me,” Collins said. “I took it like a man, like I always do. It’s not the first. It won’t be the last. [The players] just saw the replay on the board so they came off the field. They’re supposed to stay on the field. They’ve been out there so much they want to get off.”

Familia Not Balking
Mets manager Terry Collins and pitching coach Dan Warthen got into an animated discussion with the umpiring crew after Saturday's 14-inning win over the Phillies. And it's a discussion they have had before.

The Mets repeatedly have been told that an aspect of Jeurys Familia's delivery involving his right leg can be considered a balk. The Mets continue to counter that it's part of Familia's natural delivery and therefore permissible.

“It’s part of his delivery that he does that they said it almost can constitute a balk at times,” Collins said. “I told them, ‘You’re the 10th umpire that’s talked about it.’ Nobody has ever called it. So we’ll let it roll.”

No DL for Lagares
Mets manager Terry Collins does not expect Juan Lagares to be in the lineup Sunday, but also does not expect the standout center fielder to land on the disabled list.

Lagares was scratched from Saturday’s start shortly before the first pitch with a right rib-cage injury, which the Mets are calling a spasm. The injury is toward the back of the rib cage, not in the side area which can be particularly problematic when swinging.

Mets Minor League Roundup 5/17: Dana Eveland strikes out 10 for Vegas in win

Mets Minor League Roundup 5/17:

Mets AAA - LAS VEGAS 6, EL PASO 4: The Las Vegas 51s won their third straight defeating the El Paso Chihuahuas, 6-4. Las Vegas starter Dana Eveland pitched six innings and struck out 10 Chihuahuas in the win. Both sides made two errors in the early innings, leading to at least one unearned run per team. The score was 5-4 Las Vegas at the end of three innings before the offenses settled down, holding the 5-4 score until Allan Dykstra's eighth inning RBI single. Las Vegas outfielder Cesar Puello went 2-for-3 while reaching two other times on hit by pitches. Former Padres farmhand Brandon Allen had two hits, including a home run off the facing of The Big Dog House building in right field. Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-4 with a double in the loss for El Paso. Francoeur has 18 hits in his last 13 games. Jorge Reyes and Blaine Boyer pitched scoreless outings for El Paso. Box

Mets AA - BINGHAMTON 6, NEW HAMPSHIRE 5: Travis Taijeron doubled twice and Kevin Plawecki drove in two runs in Binghamton’s fourth straight win. Binghamton broke a scoreless tie in the third against Fisher Cats starter Matt Boyd. Taijeron had a leadoff double and Wilfredo Tovar plated him by bouncing a single off Boyd’s foot and up the middle. Following a wild pitch that moved Tovar into scoring position, Brian Burgamy produced an RBI single for a 2-0 lead. Plawecki capped the inning's scoring by singling to right. Burgamy raced home from second, and needed an acrobatic headfirst dive to avoid a tag. B-Mets starter Rainy Lara's scoreless effort ended in the fourth on Ryan Schimpf's solo homer. Lara then retired seven of the next eight batters. Taijeron struck again for the B-Mets in the sixth. With two outs and Jayce Boyd at first, Taijeron smoked a 1-2 pitch from reliever John Anderson off the top of the left-field fence for his second double of the game. Boyd scored from first to give the B-Mets a 4-1 advantage. Schimpf's second solo homer of the game pulled New Hampshire within 4-2 in the sixth. A half-inning later, Binghamton opened a four-run lead. Anderson bounced a pickoff throw to first, prompting Darrell Ceciliani to scamper to second. With the ball still loose, Ceciliani tried for third. Right fielder Matt Newman’s throw hit Ceciliani, enabling him to race home. Cory Vaughn and Plawecki followed by posting back-to-back two-out doubles. Lara was chased from the game in the seventh. With runners at the corners, Peter Mooney stroked an RBI double. Reliever John Church entered and surrendered a run-producing infield single to Jon Berti. Kenny Wilson followed with an RBI groundout, cutting Binghamton’s lead to 6-5. Church intentionally walked Schimpf, then retired A.J. Jimenez. Church added a perfect eighth. Cody Satterwhite struck out two in a 1-2-3 ninth to earn his first save in affiliated baseball since July 23, 2011, when he was a Gulf Coast League Tiger. Lara (4-1) matched a season high with seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings. Box

Mets News: Mets sign pitchers Buddy Carlyle and Dana Eveland to minor league deals


Mets News:

The Mets announced this week that they've inked right-hander Buddy Carlyle to a minor league deal. The 36-year-old last appeared in the Majors in 2011 with the Yankees and has a career 5.58 ERA in 253 1/3 innings.

Carlyle, who did not receive an invitation to Major League Spring Training, spent 2013 with the Blue Jays' Triple-A affiliate and posted strong numbers: a 3.86 ERA with 12.2 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in 56 innings of relief.

Southpaw Dana Eveland has also agreed to a minor league deal with the Mets that does not include a major league Spring Training invite.

Eveland, who threw in Korea last year for the Hanwha Eagles, has played in parts of eight MLB seasons. His career ERA stands at 5.46 through 392 2/3 innings, split about evenly between starting and relief.
