Mets News and Notes: Gone to Cincinnati, Santana's Status, Hairston Trade?, Cecchini, Mejia


Mets News and Notes:

The Mets traveled to Cincinnati after yesterday's game and are off today. The three-game series opens Tuesday at 7:10 p.m. at Great American Ball Park, with Chris Young (3-6, 4.87 ERA) opposing right-hander Mat Latos (10-3, 3.81). The Mets also make a stop in Washington during the two-city trip.

"A six-game road trip against the best team in the Central and the best team in the East," Terry Collins said. "Certainly a tough task."

Collins reiterated Johan Santana will be fine to start Friday's game in Washington. “He's had one start after being out a month -- or three weeks. Any conversations we have about the future, they're down the road,” Collins said pregame Sunday. “They’re not going to be right now. Again, I think Johan’s shoulder is fine. We’ll take a look after a few more starts and decide how he’s feeling… -- is there any more fatigue setting in? But, right now, according to me -- I haven't talked to Sandy [Alderson] about it, I haven't talked to Dan [Warthen] about it -- but I certainly have no plans at the immediate time of shutting Johan Santana down.”

Mets Chris Schwinden placed on waivers to make room for Elvin Ramirez


According to ESPN News, Chris Schwinden who vacated one of the two roster spots that need to be opened for the promotion of right-handed reliever Elvin Ramirez and activation of catcher Josh Thole from the disabled list.

Schwinden was placed on waivers by the Mets on Thursday, that maneuver would free a 40-man roster spot for Ramirez.

The 25-year-old Schwinden is 0-1 with a 12.46 ERA in 8 2/3 innings at the major league level this season. He has made three appearances (two starts).

The Mets still will need to free a 25-man roster spot for Thole.

Assuming the Mets do not go with three catchers -- which would not seem the likelihood -- Mike Nickeas would appear far more vulnerable than Rob Johnson for a demotion.

F-Mart, Daniel Herrera on their way out?


One-time top prospect Fernando Martinez as well as left-hander Daniel Herrera may be in their final days with the organization.

A source told ESPNNewYork.com that both players are on waivers to clear the roster spots for Scott Hairston and Ronny Cedeno.

Martinez, 23, has faded as a prospect because of continual leg injuries. Even when healthy, an arthritic knee limits his mobility in the outfield. If Martinez clears waivers, the Mets can option him to Triple-A Buffalo. But Martinez's reputation could prompt another team to claim him at least to take a shot.

Martinez hit .227 in 11 games with the Mets last season. He hit .260 with eight homers and 30 RBIs in 223 at-bats at Triple-A Buffalo.

Herrera, 27, was one of two players to be named in the deal that sent Francisco Rodriguez to the Milwaukee Brewers -- really a salary dump to avoid K-Rod's contract vesting at 55 games finished with the Mets. Herrera had adequate numbers as a Met -- a 1.13 ERA in 16 appearances spanning eight innings -- but the organization concern is his effectiveness will fade as National League East opponents become more acclimated to his screwball.

Let's Make a deal: Jason Bay, Chris Capuano, DJ Carrasco, Willie Harris, and Angel Pagan clear waivers


According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY,  Jason Bay,  Chris Capuano,  D.J. Carrasco, Willie Harris and  Angel Pagan have cleared waivers, a source told ESPNNewYork.com.

That does not mean any of the players will get traded. It merely mean they are eligible to be traded to any of the other 29 teams this month.

Bay is only in the second season of a four-year, $66 million deal, so going unclaimed makes sense. If a team would have put in a claim, the Mets could just have unloaded Bay's contract on the other team by letting the claim go through. Similarly, but with far less money at stake, Carrasco is in the first season of a two-year, $2.4 million deal.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets have placed INF/OF Nick Evans, INF Luis Hernandez and LHP Pat Misch on waivers.

Evans probably would have made the Opening Day roster if Carlos Beltran began the year on the disabled list.

Now he'll probably find himself in another organization before the week is through. The results of the waiver process are expected to be known on Wednesday.
