Mets News: ESPN: Warthen says Rafael Montero is "Smooth"


Mets News:


From ESPN NY:

While watching right-hander Rafael Montero throwing live batting practice Tuesday, Dan Warthen uttered two words to the bullpen catcher standing next to him.

“[Expletive] smooth!” the pitching coach excitedly said.

Warthen repeatedly has said this spring training that the 23-year-old Montero possesses as close to a perfect delivery as any in the game.

His fastball generally resides in the low-90s, but he has more in the tank when required.

“I talk to guys on other teams, like in Triple-A,” said Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who faced Montero in Tuesday’s batting practice. “Come August and September, they’re just like, ‘That guy has an extra gear. His fastball has got an extra gear I can’t get to right now.’”

Said Juan Lagares, who also batted against Montero on Tuesday: “He always tries to keep the ball down and he throws a lot of strikes. It’s not too easy to hit against him, because always he keeps it down in the strike zone. He doesn’t miss too much up.”

Nieuwenhuis, a lefty hitter, said Montero can be particularly tough on those batters.

“He must have long fingers or something, because when it comes out, for a lefty it kind of looks like it’s going to sneak in on you,” Nieuwenhuis said, adding that two-seamer eventually darts back over the plate.

Mets News: Mets sign 1B/OF Matt Clark to a minor league contract


Mets News:


The Mets on Friday signed first baseman Matt Clark to a Minor League contract with an invitation to big league Spring Training.

Clark, who also has experience as an outfielder, spent five seasons in the Padres organization from 2008-12 before taking his game to Japan last season. The left-handed hitter flashed his power potential in Japan, connecting for 25 home runs over 132 games with Chunichi Dragons, while also posting a .238 average and driving in 70 runs.

As for his production stateside, Clark hit .282 with 102 homers and 390 RBIs during his five seasons in the Minors. Originally selected by the Padres in the 12th round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft, Clark's final two years in the Padres' system were spent entirely with Triple-A Tucson, where he hit .291 with 45 long balls and 160 RBIs over 250 games.

Video / Scouting Report: C Kevin Plawecki, #5 Mets Prospect




Scouting Report:


Kevin Plawecki / C, NYM
Born 2/26/1991 (23 yrs old)
Carmel, IN, USA
School: Purdue
Height 6-2
Weight 215
Bats/Throws R/R

Catcher Kevin Plawecki, was a perfect fit for the Mets in 2012, as the 35th pick overall in the amateur draft. Plawecki struck out just eight times in 223 at-bats during his junior season at Purdue, and 29 times over his three-year college career -- a span of 638 at-bats. He also walked 26 times as a junior, matching his total for the previous two years combined.

The result for Plawecki was a .359 average with seven home runs and 47 RBIs in 59 games, showcasing some of the power that the Mets believe will continue to develop throughout his professional career. The Indiana native was named the Big Ten Player of the Year and the conference tournament's Most Outstanding Player, and is currently one of the three finalists for the Johnny Bench Award, given annually to the NCAA's top Division I catcher.

Must See Video: The A-Rod Scandal




Anthony Bosch, who ran a secret doping practice for pro athletes. It was last summer, after Bosch was exposed, that Rodriguez and 13 others, all Bosch's clients, were suspended. All accepted their penalties except Rodriguez who appealed. In Rodriguez's appeal hearing, Tony Bosch testified for five days, behind closed doors. Tonight, he spoke publicly for the first time on CBS 60 Minutes.

I am so glad the truth comes out and this cheating bastard A-Roid got his due....

Video / Scouting Report: RHP Rafael Montero, Number Three Mets Prospect




Scouting Report:

Rafael Montero, rhp, Mets
Team: Triple-A Las Vegas (Maybe Mets 5th starter)
Age: 22
(Hat Tip Scouting Book)

The Scoop: The Mets signed him in January 2011 when he was 20—an age that makes him practically ancient in the world of international scouting—but he’s skyrocketed from the Dominican Summer League to Triple-A in just two seasons thanks to his impressive command of a solid arsenal. Little has fazed Montero on that journey, including the hitter-friendly conditions of Las Vegas.

Mansfield, TX, USA

Weight 200
Bats/Throws L/R

Scouting Report via Baseball Prospect Nation

Body (6-5, 200): Extra-large frame with really long legs and long arms. High waist. Good shoulder width with room to fill out and add strength. Solid athleticism with good control of his body.

Delivery/Mechanics: Relatively simple delivery that he controls well despite size and long limbs. Consistent landing point and good line to the plate. Arm action gets a little short on the back side but he repeats it well. Some effort throughout drive to the plate and some scouts don’t love it.

Fastball (FB) Velocity (Wind-up): High – 100, Low – 90, Average – 93-95, Grade – 70/80

Fastball (FB) Velocity (Stretch): High – 99, Low 90, Average 93-94, Grade – 70/80

Fastball (FB) Movement: Really good plane to the plate because of height and long arms. Good angle makes him difficult to square and helps induce ground balls. Has some boring action at times. Shows ability to add sink as well and should have more consistent ability to do so with additional experience. Grade – 60/70

Mets Rumors: Does Sandy Alderson Have Something Big .... Up His Sleeve (Updated) ?


Mets Rumors:


Watch the Video, You Decide?


The Mets are ready to strike and have their hands in the BIG Pot for a change. Sounds like the Mets have small moves they could do, but the Mets sound like they have a big deal also in place. Listen to Sandy.. We have options... That Could Mean the Mets will add significant payroll to a budget that has exceeded the Wilpon's Pockets already with SP Bartolo Colon who was added this week...

"I think it's more likely if we come up with a 'high-end' shortstop or someone we like, it's more likely to come in a trade," Alderson told reporters.

Sandy Alderson sounds like a man that has a big play in his hands.. Especially for a shortstop.. or even a outfielder.. The Mets seem they can get a shortstop from the trade market.. but can it get bigger??

Let's Play Devils Advocate for a Minute.. Maybe the Mets can get in a Matt Kemp Deal? or Maybe Be a Piece in a three-way deal to a David Price deal?.... Who the Fuck Knows?

The Mets could look to a handful of teams (Updated) for some answers like the D'Backs, Brewers, Dodgers, Rangers, and even .. Mariners (updated)

Target 1:  (Updated) The Arizona Diamondbacks are rumored to have strong ties to a SP David Price deal according to Matt Cerrone (Hat Tip) of Mets Blog. The Diamondbacks have many shortstops to offer... The D-Backs have shortstops Didi Gregorius, Chris Owings and Nick Ahmed, all of whom are top infield prospects, as well as Cliff Pennington, who is under contract through 2014. The Mets could possibly be involved in a three team trade as been reported and mentioned numerous times on MetsChronicle.com. The D'Backs put Gregorius and A.J. Pollack on the market last year for pitching prospects, maybe the D'Backs look to do the same before spring training ends..
