Atlanta Braves starter Brandon Beachy has been scratched from his scheduled Tuesday night start against the New York Mets. Beachy experienced soreness in his elbow after his Thursday night rehab assignment for the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves against the Rochester Red Wings. Atlanta Braves GM Frank Wren made the announcement during the sixth inning of Friday night’s 6-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants. Wren characterized Beachy’s situation as a minor setback, the first during his year-long rehab, and explained what to expect going forward. “We had hoped he could make this start on the doubleheader, but it wasn’t a make-or-break start obviously,” Wren said. “The most important thing is to get him healthy long-term, and we feel like pushing him back a little bit, giving him a little more time, is the prudent thing to do.” Wren said that Beachy was examined at Turner Field Friday night by doctors and that there is inflammation in the elbow that won’t require an MRI. “We’re going to con

ATLANTA -- The Braves' plan for Brandon Beachy's return has hit a snag.
Citing tenderness in Beachy's elbow after Thursday's start for Triple-A Gwinnett, general manager Frank Wren announced the right-hander will not start in Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.
It was slated to be Beachy's first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery on June 21, 2012...
Matt Harvey has become the new Johan Santana of the Mets, and that is not in reference to his skills or his emergence into the staff’s ace.
Harvey has been lights out all season long, and should have at least ten wins under his belt. However despite his 2.04 ERA, Matt Harvey sits at 5-1 on the year, that one loss coming last night after he allowed just a lone run over seven frames...
David Wright spoke out about the overzealous campaign by the Mets to get him voted to the All Star Game.
“It’s nice when the organization is trying so hard to do something for one of their players and I can’t thank them enough for that,” Wright said.
“But at the same time, I’ve asked them to kind of back it down a little bit, especially with the stuff between innings...
Zack Wheeler is expected to remain with Triple-A Las Vegas and throw his between-starts bullpen session with the Pacific Coast League club before joining the Mets on Monday in Atlanta. He is expected to pitch the nightcap of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Braves at Turner Field.
Terry Collins said the nighttime assignment is designed to keep Wheeler in a routine.

ATLANTA -- When Madison Bumgarner stares down Braves hitters from 60 feet, six inches away, location has meant everything and nothing this season: everything in terms of pitch location; nothing in terms of venue. The 23-year-old rising star toyed with Atlanta's hitters for the second consecutive time Friday, painting corners, throwing strikes and delivering an arsenal of deceptive...
After 53 games of the 2013 baseball season, I think we have our enduring image. A defining moment. What it defines, I'm not sure. But it's going to wind up summing up this season perfectly:
That's Lucas Duda. In the seventh inning of a baseball game on Saturday with his team down by one run. Bunting. Willingly. Now mind you ... not only does Duda lead the Mets...
There is an old football saying that states, “the most popular guy in town is always the backup quarterback.” Although that phrase may not directly translate to the game of baseball, I think we can all relate it to the Mets current managerial situation. The incumbent skipper, Terry Collins, has seen his tenure dominated by poor play thanks in part to a poor roster. Lurking...
There have been all kinds of happenings in the Mets organization of late.
Ike Davis – who was supposed to be one of the big bats in the Mets’ line-up – was sent down to Triple-A along with Mike Baxter and Robert Carson.
Davis has struggled immensely this season with a batting line of .161/.242/.258 and has been on a downward plane since injuring his left ankle in a collision...
Think Anthony Young is getting nervous?
Or is he doing what we all should be doing ... anything except watching the New York Mets play baseball?
Here's my recap of Friday's game: I'm on the bus, and Shaun Marcum gives up five runs. So when I got home, I went to sleep. When I woke up, Marcum was 0-8. The End.
Speaking of ...
It sure is...
Because this needed to happen, that is why.
