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 and Notes: Turner, Wright, Parnell, Wheeler, Quintanilla/Tovar Platoon


Mets News and Notes:

  • Mets injured infielder Justin Turner has not appeared in a game since Sept. 10 because of a Grade 1 right hamstring strain.
  • When Turner returns is the Question?
  • Turner said that's in the hands of the trainers at this point, but returning this weekend in Philadelphia is not out of the question. He did full baseball activities pregame Thursday, although he only ran at what he estimated was 75 or 80 percent.
  • Terry Collins said before Thursday's 2-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants that it was likely Wright will be in the lineup in Philadelphia for the series opener.
  • Wright has not appeared in a major league game since suffering a Grade 2 hamstring strain on Aug. 2.
  • David Wright told ESPNNewYork.com he will wait until Friday to confer with Terry Collins and team trainers and get the go-ahead to play in the series opener at Citizens Bank Park.

Mets Minor League Roundup 8/7: Wilfredo Tovar Homers Twice for Binghamton, Brandon Nimmo goes 3 for 5 for Savannah


Mets Minor League Roundup 8/7:


AA - ALTOONA 5, BINGHAMTON 4: Wilfredo Tovar homered twice, but B-Mets pitchers had three costly throwing errors as a five-game winning streak ended. Tovar blasted a solo shot against Casey Sadler in the second to open the scoring. In the third, poor fielding allowed Altoona to respond. After the first two batters reached, Sadler pushed a bunt back to the mound. Erik Goeddel tried to force out the lead runner at third base, but an errant throw allowed two runners to score. Alen Hanson followed with another bunt, and Goeddel’s throw went awry down the right-field line to put Altoona up, 3-1. Cory Vaughn brought the B-Mets within a run with a solo homer in the fourth. It was his second homer since rejoining the B-Mets on Tuesday. He has seven RBIs in three games. Goeddel departed after six innings with the B-Mets trailing, 3-2. Armando Rodriguez entered in the seventh and allowed two runs in the frame. After Carlos Paulino's single, Rodriguez sent an errant pickoff attempt past first base that allowed the runner to advance to third. The next pitch was belted off the right-field wall by Mel Rojas Jr. for an RBI triple. Pinch hitter Andy Vasquez then placed a suicide squeeze down the third-base line to score the final Altoona run. In the bottom half, Tovar lifted a two-run shot over the left-field wall to bring the B-Mets within a run. Richard Lucas singled later in the inning, but was stranded. It was the first multi-homer game of Tovar's professional career. Darrell Ceciliani and Pedro Lopez were ejected in the bottom of the seventh inning by plate umpire Nick Mahrley. Box

A+ - BRADENTON 8, ST. LUCIE 5: Starter Domingo Tapia surrendered seven runs in 1 1/3 innings. Box

A - CHARLESTON 9, SAVANNAH 7: The RiverDogs snapped a seven-game losing streak, taking the lead for good with a three-run sixth. Gregory Bird launched a go-ahead two-run homer against reliever Tyler Vanderheiden for the game's final runs. The Sand Gnats (23-19/66-45) had taken a brief 7-6 lead with three runs in the bottom of the fifth. The key hit in the frame was a two-run single by Nelfi Zapata. Charleston had taken its first lead, 6-4, with three runs in the top half against Savannah starter Marcos Camarena. Helped by a walk and two hit-by-pitches, the 'Dogs scored three runs on just one hit in the inning. The Gnats built a 4-1 lead with two runs apiece in the first and second innings. In the second, Brandon Nimmo (3-for-5) doubled home two runs. Savannah pitching had not allowed a run in the first 18 innings of the series against Charleston. Box

RK - KINGSPORT 7, PULASKI 4: Starter Yoan Gonzalez allowed two runs (none earned) in six innings. The K-Mets (25-19) produced a five-run fourth that included a solo homer by Jon Leroux and a two-run single by Amed Rosario. Box

SS - BROOKLYN 4, CONNECTICUT 3: The Cyclones overcame a 3-2 deficit with a two-run eighth. Matthew Oberste singled and moved to third on James Roche's double. Connecticut was forced to bring the infield in, and Jonathan Clark hit a seeing eye-single through the left side to plate the tying run. With men on the corners and one out, Tomas Nido ripped a line-drive single up the middle to give Brooklyn its first lead. John Mincone then notched his sixth save, pulling him even for the New York-Penn League lead. Box
