Mets News and Notes: Hefner to Throw off mound, Lannan Reports to Vegas, Prospect Walters Tears UCL

Mets News and Notes:

Hefner to throw off mound
Right-hander Jeremy Hefner plans to take a major step forward Tuesday in his return from Tommy John surgery.

Hefner, 28, is due to throw roughly 15 pitches off a mound in Port St. Lucie, Fla. It will mark his first time throwing off an incline since undergoing the elbow procedure on Aug. 28.

Hefner re-signed with the Mets on a minor-league contract after being non-tendered in December. He went 4-8 with a 4.34 ERA in 24 appearances (23 starts) last season before landing on the disabled list and then undergoing surgery.

Lannan Reports to Vegas
John Lannan, who accepted an assignment to Triple-A Las Vegas but never reported after being dumped by the Mets on April 16, has rejoined the organization.

The team announced the 29-year-old southpaw has reported to Port St. Lucie, Fla., on Monday to get back into pitching shape.
