Mets News and Notes: Wright's Cortisone Shot, Niese getting ready for second half, No Call Up for extra infielder, Prospects Showcase themselves at Future's Game


Mets News and Notes:


Syndergaard in 2014 Futures Game
Wright's Cortisone Shot
David Wright insisted he does not deserve to represent the Mets at Tuesday's All-Star Game. More candidly, the captain confessed Sunday morning, even if the National League needed a late replacement, he would be unable to perform.

Dogged by a bruised left rotator cuff and inflammation that recently sidelined him for a week, Wright told ESPNNewYork.com he will receive a cortisone injection in the shoulder after Sunday's first-half finale. He then will spend the All-Star break "out west," allowing the shot to take effect.

Niese getting ready for second half
Jon Niese threw 21 pitches in the home bullpen at Citi Field on Sunday morning, took a break to simulate a half-inning, then threw an additional 17 pitches. It was his first time working off a mound since a 12-pitch appearance on July 4, when he departed after getting struck with a line drive in his lower back.

Niese officially landed on the DL the following day with a left shoulder strain. An MRI last Monday revealed inflammation in the AC joint.

The Mets plan to activate Niese from the DL to face the Seattle Mariners on July 21, to open the second series after the All-Star break. The southpaw will throw another bullpen session when the Mets reconvene Friday in San Diego to affirm his readiness.

Niese is eligible to return from the DL next Sunday, on the final day in San Diego, but Terry Collins prefers having Niese wait until Seattle, where lefty-hitting Robinson Cano poses a big danger.

Video: Campbell's Great Catch and Double Play

Mets News and Notes: d'Arnaud Cleared, Mejia Clears Hurdle, Gee Rehab Start, The "Soup" will get playing time


Mets News and Notes:


D'Arnaud cleared
Travis d’Arnaud was cleared Thursday to begin baseball activities including running, throwing and hitting in a cage. The go-ahead came nine days after d’Arnaud suffered a concussion as the result of getting struck on the top of the head by Alfonso Soriano's backswing in the Bronx.

D’Arnaud still may be several days away from returning to the lineup. Terry Collins mentioned he would like d’Arnaud to get at-bats on a rehab assignment. Physicians will need to sign off before any game activity occurs.

D’Arnaud said he was symptom-free for the first time Wednesday. Previously, he was dealing with “a lot of headaches,” sensitivity to light and sound, and trouble sleeping.

D’Arnaud indicated he has now suffered three concussions during his professional career. One came on April 25, 2011, while he was playing in Double-A with the Toronto Blue Jays, when he was struck with consecutive foul balls and immediately became dizzy. He departed that game an inning later. The other came in 2008 on a play at the plate as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies, when he took a foot to the face after discarding his mask.

Mejia Clears Hurdle
Jenrry Mejia cleared a psychological hurdle Thursday while notching his second career save.

Mejia worked back-to-back days for the first time since June 5-6, 2010 while completing the Mets’ 5-3 win against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Mejia has been leery about working on consecutive days because he feels the injury woes he suffered earlier in his career were linked to a bullpen-type workload rather than the consistency of starting.

Mejia is warming to closing, even though he staunchly has said he prefers starting.

Mejia’s light workload Wednesday -- eight pitches in a scoreless inning -- proved a perfect opportunity to get the emerging closer work for a second straight day.

Mets News: Josh Satin officially demoted, Omar Quintanilla clears waivers - returns to Vegas


Mets News:


Josh Satin officially has been demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear the roster spot for fellow righty-hitting corner infielder Eric Campbell.

Satin, 29, hit .107 (3-for-28) with three RBIs in limited play this season. That included going 0-for-5 Friday with Lucas Duda ill and unavailable.

Omar Quintanilla has been outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas after clearing waivers. He was designated for assignment when Wilmer Flores was promoted.

Quintanilla has accepted the assignment to Vegas. He had the right to declare free agency.

Quintanilla, 32, hit .207 (6-for-29) with three RBIs in 15 games with the Mets this season.

Mets News: Mets send up utility guy Eric Campbell, Satin most likely to get sent down


Mets News:


INF/OF Eric Campbell will join the Mets on Saturday from Las Vegas, the team announced.

The Mets did not announce a corresponding move as of yet, but Josh Satin would appear highly likely to be demoted.

Starting Friday with Lucas Duda suffering from suspected food poisoning and unavailable, Satin went 0-for-5. He left the bases loaded in the first inning and two runners in scoring position in the fifth with strikeouts. That dropped Satin to 3-for-28 on the season.

Terry Collins said he expects Duda also to be unavailable Saturday, so Campbell presumably will make his major-league debut against the Phillies at first base.

Campbell, 27, stuck around until the very end of spring training, even going to Montreal with the club for the final exhibition games, even though he was a non-roster invite to camp. He has continued his torrid production with Vegas, hitting .355 with three homers, 24 RBIs and a .442 on-base percentage through 33 games.

Campbell is very versatile and has played 1B, 2B, OF, 3B and even shortstop... Campbell is not on the 40-man roster, but can take the spot vacated by Omar Quintanilla, who was designated for assignment coinciding with Flores' promotion.

Mets Minor League Roundup 4/8: Campbell powers 51's to Victory


Mets Minor League Roundup 4/8:

Mets AAA - LAS VEGAS 7, SACRAMENTO 6: Rafael Montero allowed three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out nine in five innings. He threw 92 pitches (66 strikes). Eric Campbell delivered a tiebreaking two-run homer in the seventh against ex-Met Philip Humber and the 51s held on. Jeff Walters tossed a scoreless ninth for his first Triple-A save. The 51s improved to 5-1. Zach Lutz went 1-for-3 with a walk and is batting .500. Noah Syndergaard is scheduled to start Wednesday for Vegas. Box

Mets AA - BINGHAMTON 7, ERIE 2: Matt Clark collected three hits, including a tiebreaking homer, and Darrell Ceciliani drove in three runs on a pair of doubles as part of Binghamton’s 10-hit attack. The B-Mets scored seven unanswered runs, all with two outs, and received five scoreless innings from their bullpen. Binghamton was forced to play catch-up . Following a two-out single by Eugenio Suarez in the first, Erie's Aaron Westlake barely cleared the wall in right for a two-run homer. B-Mets starter Greg Peavey settled down after the round-tripper and posted three scoreless innings. Binghamton started its impressive run against Wilsen Palacios in the second inning. With two outs and two aboard, Ceciliani sent a blooper into right-center. The looping fly ball dropped untouched, allowing both runners to scamper home, tying the score at 2.

Clark broke the tie with authority in the fourth. The DH launched Nick Avila’s 0-1 pitch deep over the right-center wall, giving the B-Mets a 4-2 lead. Wilfredo Tovar kept up the impressive two-out magic and kicked Binghamton’s lead to three in the fifth with an RBI triple. The run continued against reliever Pat McCoy in the sixth. With Jayce Boyd on first, Dustin Lawley hit a grounder to Eugenio Suarez’s extreme right. The shortstop ranged to get to the roller, but his throw to second sailed wide and bounced into right field, allowing Boyd to score. Ceciliani capped the B-Mets' offensive night with a two-out RBI double off McCoy in the eighth. On the pitching side, Peavey exited after throwing 75 pitches in four innings. Cody Satterwhite took over in the fifth and delivered 2 1/3 scoreless relief innings. Adam Kolarek entered with one out in the seventh and closed the door on a threat, then posted a scoreless eighth. Jon Velasquez worked around a single and a walk in a scoreless ninth. Satterwhite (1-0) allowed two hits and struck out three to earn his first Double-A victory since July 23, 2009, when he was an Erie SeaWolves player. Clark’s long ball marked his first homer in the United States since Aug. 4, 2012 when he went deep as a Tucson Padre. He had 25 homers last season in Japan. Box

Brach countered with three shutout innings of his own, but stumbled in the eighth. Binghamton’s game-tying rally started with a one-out walk to Daniel Muno. Muno stole second and Tovar brought him home by bouncing a single up the middle, knotting the game at 3. Jeff Johnson took over for Brach and collected the final two outs of the inning, stranding the potential go-ahead run at third base. B-Mets reliever Chase Huchingson preserved the tie with a perfect eighth. Chasen Bradford worked around leadoff walks in the ninth and 10th innings to add two scoreless frames. Box

A+ - FORT MYERS 9, ST. LUCIE 8 (9 innings)
FORT MYERS 3, ST. LUCIE 2: In Game 1, St, Lucie failed to hold a two-run lead in the seventh inning, then a one-run lead in the eighth.

St. Lucie pulled with a run on Yucarybert De La Cruz's two-run double in the fifth. But St. Lucie mustered only one other hit in the game. Box 1, Box 2

Mets Minor League Roundup 8/13: Campbell delivers two out double to plate go ahead run in eighth for Vegas, Plawecki's hits 2 Run-HR for St.Lucie


Mets Minor League Roundup 8/13:


AAA - LAS VEGAS 4, NEW ORLEANS 3: Eric Campbell (2-for-2, walk) delivered a two-out double in the eighth to plate Francisco Pena and break a 3-all tie. Right-hander Jacob deGrom pitched six innings for the 51s and allowed three runs on nine hits and a walk. DeGrom also produced his first professional homer -- a solo shot in the sixth inning to break a scoreless tie. Robert Carson earned his 10th save after entering with two outs in the ninth and retiring pinch hitter Nick Green. John Church (2-0) earned the win in relief. Box

AA - READING 7, BINGHAMTON 6: Reading scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth, including the game-winner on a wild pitch by Jeff Walters. It marked the second time this season Binghamton lost on a walk-off wild pitch. The other instance: John Church on April 23 in the 10th inning at Portland. It was Walters’ first blown save since June 6 against Trenton and snapped a streak of 20 straight save conversions. Walters (3-2) suffered his third blown save of the season and first loss since May 24. The B-Mets had overcome an early deficit with a four-run rally with two outs in the seventh. The B-Mets handed a 6-5 lead to Walters in ninth. Pitching for the first time in five days, the righty recorded the first out on one pitch before surrendering a single to Matt Tolbert and a double to Sebastian Valle. Following an intentional walk to load the bases, Anthony Hewitt tied the score with an infield single. Walters spiked the next pitch past catcher Blake Forsythe, allowing Valle to score the game-winning run. Trailing 4-2, Binghamton saved its offensive magic for the seventh. Colby Shreve collected the first two outs, but then allowed two to reach. Cory Vaughn cut the deficit to one and ended Shreve’s night with an RBI single. Southpaw Austin Wright entered to face Allan Dykstra. After taking two out of the zone, Dykstra launched a towering drive over the right-field wall for a go-ahead three-run homer. The long ball was Dykstra’s 19th of the season and first since July 22. Dykstra matched his career high. He also had 19 homers in 2011 with the B-Mets. Box
