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 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.

Mets Rumors: Cubs Starlin Castro might be a fit for Mets, but might cost Wheeler or Syndergaard in return

Mets Rumors:

According to a report by John Harper of the Daily News, the Mets are an ideal candidate for a SS Starlin Castro Trade with the Cubs.

The Problem is who would the Mets give up to get him? The Cubs are looking to upgrade their farm system with pitching. The Mets have plenty of minor league pitchers, but it is up to the Mets to depart with some in order to get a deal done.

Harper suggest that Zack Wheeler and Jacob deGrom could get the deal in action, problem is the Mets are with injuries to Jon Niese and others like Matt Harvey.

If the Mets can get Harvey back to 100% and have Noah Syndergaard ready for 2015 the Mets will have some depth to deal with. Guys like Rafael Montero or Jacob deGrom could become available...

So would an offer of Wheeler convince Epstein to deal now? One baseball executive friendly with Epstein said it would take more.

Box

Mets AA - ALTOONA 3, BINGHAMTON 1: The B-Mets mustered three hits or fewer for the third time in four games. Altoona cracked the scoreboard without the aid of a hit in the first against Hansel Robles. A hit batter, walk and fielder’s choice put runners at the corners. Elias Diaz then sent a grounder to second baseman Brian Burgamy’s left. His spinning throw to second was off target, allowing Drew Maggi to scamper home with the opening run. The B-Mets evened the score at 1 in the second against Joely Rodriguez. Dustin Lawley walked, moved to third on consecutive groundouts and scored when Darrell Ceciliani beat out an infield single. Robles held Altoona hitless in its first nine at-bats with runners in scoring position. The streak came to an end with two outs in the fifth. With two aboard, Keon Broxton threaded an 0-2 pitch into right field to break the tie score and end Robles’ night. Reliever Ryan Fraser inherited runners at second and third and induced Willy Garcia to send a weak bouncer to third. Lawley hesitated before charging the grounder and fired late to first, allowing Diaz to score and giving the Curve a 3-1 lead. Ceciliani’s single proved to be the only blemish for Rodriguez. The southpaw closed his night by posting five scoreless innings. He retired the final 11 batters he faced. Binghamton mustered a threat against the Curve bullpen in the eighth. Following a single by Xorge Carrillo, Brandon Nimmo lined a double against Emmanuel de Leon, putting runners at second and third.

Mets Minor League Roundup 6/21: Syndergaard Wins for Vegas, d'Arnaud helps the cause

Mets Minor League Roundup 6/21:

Mets AAA - LAS VEGAS 11, MEMPHIS 5: Noah Syndergaard surrendered a two-run homer to Xavier Scruggs in a three-run first by the Redbirds.

However, Stephen Piscotty singled to open the seventh and Pete Kozma launched a two-run homer with one out in the frame. So Syndergaard ultimately was charged with five runs on six hits while striking out seven and walking none in 6 2/3 innings. Travis d'Arnaud went 2-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI and is hitting .453 in Triple-A. Anthony Seratelli had a three-run homer in a five-run third.

Trailing 5-3, Binghamton took the lead with a three-run seventh against Anthony Vasquez. Kevin Plawecki deposited an RBI double into the right-field corner, cutting Bowie’s lead to one. Jayce Boyd followed by plating Plawecki with the tying run on a double. Three batters later, Boyd scampered home with the go-ahead run when reliever Steven Hensley uncorked a wild pitch. The B-Mets tacked on a much-needed insurance run in the eighth. Pinch-hitter Kyle Johnson reached safely with a two-out double when his innocent popup behind second fell to the outfield turf. Plawecki brought him home by threading a single into left field. Bowie had one last gasp offensively in the eighth. Rehabbing Oriole Nolan Reimold doubled against Kolarek and his pinch-runner, Johnny Ruettiger, scored on consecutive groundouts to trim Binghamton’s lead to one. Satterwhite took the reins in the ninth and posted a perfect inning, fanning Garabez Rosa to lock down his third save. Fraser (1-0) retired all four Baysox he faced after replacing Matz in the sixth to pick up his first win. Box

Mets News and Notes: No Return imminent for Gee, EY has Hammy Setback, Johan has Torn Achilles Tendon, Syndergaard will miss week

Mets News and Notes:

NO Return imminent for Gee
Dillon Gee resumed throwing Wednesday on flat ground, but it still will be a while before he returns to the New York Mets rotation.

Gee had refrained from throwing since experiencing discomfort in his strained right lat muscle on May 25 while attempting to toss a baseball.

Because Gee will ultimately have spent about a full month away from a mound, the right-hander will probably need at least two minor league rehab appearances. And he's not even back on a mound yet.

EY has Hammy Setback
Eric Young Jr. will not be returning from the disabled list when he is eligible Tuesday.

Young felt tightness in his strained right hamstring running at the Mets' complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and has been backed off his rehab program.

He was placed on the DL on May 25.

Mets News: Noah Syndergaard has sprain in non throwing shoulder

Mets News:

According to ESPN, top prospect Noah Syndergaard has been diagnosed with a sprain of his left, non-throwing shoulder as a result of Thursday's plate collision in Las Vegas.

The degree of the sprain was not yet clear in the report...

Syndergaard had been dispatched for X-rays on Thursday night after colliding with a baserunner at the plate after uncorking a wild pitch. He departed the game in the first inning.

Syndergaard had just returned from a DL trip for a forearm strain.

Mets News: Oh Noah!, Top Prospect Syndergaard Injured on Play at Plate

Mets News:

Top prospect Noah Syndergaard was forced from Thursday's Triple-A Las Vegas game with two outs in the first inning after colliding at the plate with Mark Minicozzi after issuing a wild pitch.

"Noah Syndergaard was removed from the game tonight in Las Vegas after experiencing left shoulder discomfort resulting from a tag play at home plate," the Mets said in a statement. "The results of precautionary X-rays are pending."

It was Syndergaard's first appearance since May 21. He had been on the disabled list for a flexor tendon strain in his right forearm that required a visit to New York to be examined by team doctors.

Mets News and Notes: Gee Not Returning Soon, D'Arnaud Coming Back, Syndergaard's MRI Clean

Mets News and Notes:

Gee Not Returning Soon
Dillon Gee's original, ambitious goal to return from the disabled list after missing only two starts has long been thrown out the window.

Gee is taking a more cautious approach that suggests Rafael Montero and Jacob deGrom may be in the rotation for the foreseeable future.

Gee packed up his belongings after Tuesday's 4-2 win against the Pittsburgh Pirates and prepared to travel to the Mets' complex in Florida. He has been on the disabled list with a strained right lat muscle since May 11.

Gee said he threw two pitches on flat ground on Sunday with the intention of stepping onto a mound for the first time that day when he had to abort the session because he was uncomfortable.

Now, there is no set day he plans to attempt to step on a mound again. Gee said that's because he did "too much too quickly" and aggravated the lat muscle on Sunday.

d'Arnaud Coming Back
Travis d'Arnaud got in only two innings behind the plate on Tuesday before weather resulted in the suspension of Binghamton's game against New Hampshire.

Mets News: Noah Syndergaard has Forearm Injury, been placed on DL

Mets News:
Click to Enlarge

Top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard has been placed on the disabled list and will be dispatched to New York for an examination with team doctors after being diagnosed with a flexor pronator strain in his right elbow.

The injury can be a precursor to Tommy John surgery, but the Mets portrayed the injury as "mild" and not overly concerning.

"At this point we don't have a high level of concern," general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday afternoon. "But anytime the forearm is involved we like to have it looked at. So we're flying him back. He will be seen tomorrow and we'll have further information at that time."

Syndergaard, 21, had been 5-2 with a 4.02 ERA in 10 starts with Triple-A Las Vegas this season. He last pitched Wednesday.

"I don't believe it's something that's been significant over the last few starts," Alderson said. "This was following his last start. But I'm not going to tell you categorically that it hasn't existed before. I just don't know the precise answer to that question."

He was acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays with catcher Travis d'Arnaud and minor league outfielder Wuilmer Becerra for knuckleballer R.A. Dickey on Dec. 17, 2012.

Three runs scored on Burgamy’s double, giving the B-Mets the lead. Kevin Plawecki tacked on an insurance run with an RBI single. Staked to a 4-0 lead, B-Mets starter Matt Bowman surrendered six runs in the third -- all unearned. Matt Clark booted Peter Mooney’s groundball at first to start the frame.
