Mets News and Notes: d'Arnaud 7 Day, Mejia Closing, Edgin Official, ESPN Mock Draft


Mets News and Notes:

d'Arnaud 7 Day:
New York Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud, who was struck on the top of the head with Alfonso Soriano's backswing in the ninth inning on Tuesday, has landed on the seven-day concussion disabled list.

Juan Centeno has been promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas to take d'Arnaud's spot. Centeno caught right-hander Jacob deGrom's major league debut on Thursday night against the New York Yankees at Citi Field.

Centeno and Anthony Recker will form the Mets' catching duo for the next week.

Because d'Arnaud already has sat out Wednesday's game, he will be eligible to return next Wednesday, for the second game of a series against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Citi Field.

Mejia Closing:
The Mets plan to use Jenrry Mejia as the closer on Thursday night should they have a late and close lead. And Terry Collins believes over time Mejia will emerge as the regular closer.

Still, Collins said Mejia cannot be anointed to the role yet because the 24-year-old right-hander is not ready to pitch on consecutive days.

Mejia has not worked on back-to-back days at any professional level since June 5-6, 2010 -- his last time as a reliever in the majors.

Mejia is transitioning from a starting role to relief. He had a wonderful first appearance back in the bullpen, recording four outs at Yankee Stadium on Monday, hours after learning he had lost his rotation spot.

Four different Mets have recorded saves this season: the newly dumped Kyle Farnsworth (three), Jose Valverde (two), Carlos Torres (one) and Daisuke Matsuzaka (one). Planned closer Bobby Parnell landed on the disabled list after Opening Day and subsequently underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery.

Mets News and Notes: d'Arnaud Concussion DL?, Tejada Over Flores, EY Over Lagares, Super 2 Decision, Edgin on the way


Mets News and Notes:


 d'Arnaud Concussion DL?:
Wednesday, the New York Mets began to have concerns that it could be something more serious. And now there's a real chance that d'Arnaud could be heading for baseball's seven-day concussion disabled list.

d'Arnaud passed initial concussion tests Tuesday night, after Soriano inadvertently hit him on the helmet with his backswing in a ninth-inning at-bat. The Mets catcher even remained in the game to catch the final out.

But d'Arnaud was still feeling the effects of the hit Wednesday, and when he felt more symptoms after going through workouts at Citi Field, the Mets decided to administer further concussion tests. Manager Terry Collins said Wednesday night that d'Arnaud will have another test on Thursday.

The Mets have summoned catcher Juan Centeno from Triple-A Las Vegas. While Centeno has not yet been added to the roster, the Mets want him available in case d'Arnaud goes on the DL.

Tejada over Flores:
Collins gave a simple explanation for giving Ruben Tejada a fourth consecutive start at shortstop, after saying Tuesday that he expected Wilmer Flores to play.

"He's too hot to take out," Collins said.

Tejada lost his job a week ago when the Mets called up Flores from Triple-A Las Vegas, then got a reprieve when Flores got sick and had to miss Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Tejada has reached base seven times in three games since then, and has also impressed the Mets with his play at shortstop.

Mets News: Mets cut 15 players to minor league camp


Mets News:


The Mets started to make their cuts down to minor league camp....

Left-handed reliever Josh Edgin was the most notable name dispatched to minor-league camp in the first round of cuts.

Edgin, who made 34 relief appearances for the Mets last season, was registering only in the upper-80s with his fastball.

Others sent to minor league camp: infielder Wilfredo Tovar, left-handers Steven Matz and Adam Kolarek, right-handers Erik Goeddel, Logan Verrett and Chasen Bradford, catcher Kevin Plawecki, infielder Daniel Muno, infielder/outfielder Dustin Lawley, and outfielders Brandon Nimmo and Cory Vaughn, outfielder Cesar Puello, left-hander Jack Leathersich and right-hander John Church.

The Mets sent 15 players overall to the minor-league side. That leaves 49 players still in big-league camp.

Mets News: Mets promote Pedro Feliciano, Josh Edgin to DL


Mets News:


Exactly 34 months after he last threw a pitch in the majors, lefty reliever Pedro Feliciano has returned to the Mets.

The Mets promoted the 36-year-old reliever from Triple-A Las Vegas for Friday night's game against the Royals.

Feliciano's promotion came after left-handed reliever Josh Edgin was placed on the disabled list with a hairline fracture of a left rib.

Closer Bobby Parnell was also not available for Friday's game with a sore neck.

Mets News: Josh Edgin sent down to Binghamton to clear spot for Marcum




Mets News:

The Mets have sent Josh Edgin to Double-A Binghamton to clear a roster spot for Shaun Marcum.

Edgin, 26, was a lock for the bullpen out of spring training, leaving Scott Rice and Robert Carson to battle it out for the role as the second left-hander. But he has struggled this season. Despite a 1-2-3 ninth inning Friday night against the bottom of Philadelphia's lineup, Edgin has a 9.64 ERA. Lefties are hitting .350 (7-for-20) against him.

Rice and Carson are now the two left-handers in the bullpen.

The Mets chose not to send Edgin to Triple-A Las Vegas, where it would have been more difficult to get on track because of the Pacific Coast League's offensive nature.

Mets News and Notes: Mets Bullpen Shaping Up, Wright All Good, Murphy Playing, Marcum Starting Thurs, Byrdak Ahead of Schedule, Mets Opening Rotation


Mets News and Notes:

The Mets have asked reliever Pedro Feliciano to go to Triple-A for a month to build up his arm strength, and informed Feliciano he will not make the team's Opening Day roster.

"They told me I'm going to Triple-A for a month and get my strength back," Feliciano said. "I have to talk to my agent first and then see what we're going to decide."

The Mets' decision came at the deadline to inform Feliciano whether he had made the club. Remaining with the club at the minor league level would obligate the Mets to give him a $100,000 retention bonus because of his veteran status.

"They made that decision," he said of the Mets. "I'm going to think about it and see what I decide. Hopefully somebody picks me up. We'll see what happens."

This is affirming that Robert Carson is in great shape to make the Mets' Opening Day roster, the Mets will carry two left-handers in the bullpen.

Fellow lefty Scott Rice remains in camp, but seemingly would be at an overwhelming disadvantage because, unlike Carson, he is not on the 40-man roster.

Josh Edgin is expected to be Collins' primary lefty in the bullpen.

Carson, 24, had a 4.73 ERA in 17 relief appearances in 2012, during his inaugural major league season. Lefty batters hit .286 (8-for-28) with a homer, three walks and five strikeouts.

At the contractual deadline for him to be notified, the Mets have told LaTroy Hawkins he has made the Opening Day roster.

Hawkins, 40, has not allowed a run in 5 2/3 Grapefruit League innings. Opponents have a .227 batting average against him. Hawkins has surrendered five hits and two walks while striking out four over the six appearances.

He went 2-3 with a 3.64 ERA in 48 relief appearances for the Los Angeles Angels last season.

David Wright said he was "all good" the day after ramping up his activity by taking live batting practice for the first time Sunday.

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.

Mets News and Notes: Eliminated, 10 Pitchers, Edgin, Dickey, Hernandez's Mustache, Familia


Keith Shaving it Off
Mets News and Notes:

The Mets, who officially were eliminated from postseason contention, got a postgame chewing out from manager Terry Collins. He deferred questions about whether the team had quit to the players, who denied it.

The Mets now try to avoid last place in the NL East when they play host to the Miami Marlins this weekend.

The Mets used 10 pitchers in Thursday's loss, a franchise record for a nine-inning game. Philadelphia had not swept the Mets in a three-game series in Queens since Sept. 14-16, 2007 -- when Jimmy Rollins' "team to beat" prognostication began to be achieved. The official attendance was announced at a season-low 20,100 tickets sold, although no more than a few thousand appeared to actually have attended last night's game. The Mets failed to exceed three runs for the 16th straight home game, two shy of matching the 1915 Yankees' major league record.

Left-hander reliever Josh Edgin, who surrendered a homer to Ryan Howard for the second straight day, is being shut down for the season. That was resolved before Edgin allowed Thursday's ninth-inning grand slam to Howard in the series finale. While his overall innings count is comparable to 2011, Edgin has made 26 more appearances than a year ago.

Mets News and Notes: Hairston, Torres, Francisco, Baxter, Edgin, Acosta, Mejia, Wheeler


Mets News and Notes:

Scott Hairston remains a Met as the trade deadline approaches at 4 p.m. ET today. And Terry Collins expects the same roster tonight, for Game 2 of the series against the Giants.

Andres Torres was greeted warmly by Giants fans, then was forced to leave Monday's game in the eighth inning because he was unable to swing from the left side of the plate due to a right thumb injury suffered three innings earlier. Ex-Met Angel Pagan suffered a hand injury too, although Pagan's apparently was self-inflicted in frustration.

Frank Francisco's rehab assignment for a strained left oblique will resume with scheduled outings Tuesday and Wednesday with Double-A Binghamton. Johan Santana is expected to throw a bullpen session Thursday for the first time since landing on the disabled list.

Mike Baxter had a pinch-hit single in the 10th in his return from a separated shoulder. Baxter should be in the starting lineup tonight against Lincecum.

Josh Edgin picked up his first major league win and Manny Acosta ended up with the save despite issuing two walks and surrendering a run in the 10th.

Jenrry Mejia went three innings and tossed 57 pitches in return to a starting role with Triple-A Buffalo.

Zack Wheeler's Triple-A debut is expected to occur Sunday, after one final start for Binghamton tonight.
