One of the top Mets pitching prospects, Luis Mateo, has left his Double-A debut in the fourth inning of tonight’s game for the B-Mets. The trainer and head coach Pedro Lopez visited Mateo the mound and escorted him off the field. According to a tweet by Lynn Worthy, they appeared to be inspecting his hand.
Mateo was called up from St. Lucie to replace Cory Mazzoni, who was placed on the disabled list with “Tennis Elbow,” earlier today.
Before leaving the game, Mateo had given up four runs on six hits, one of which was a two run home run.
Once we get word on Mateo we will pass it along. Check back for updates.

He flew higher, faster, until he became a kind of zen master of flight and was even able to teleport...
The New York Mets were hoping that Johan Santana and Shaun Marcum would be occupying spots in the starting rotation for the majority of the 2013 season. Unfortunately, here we are in the middle of April, and neither one has thrown a regular season pitch. Santana is lost for the year after re-tearing his shoulder capsule, while Marcum has been on the disabled list since March 22nd...
After 10 games this season, Ike Davis has a .128/.244/.205 slash line. Those who want to focus on the positive will point out that he’s doing an excellent job with a 13.3 BB/9 and how nobody can look good when they possess a .154 BABIP, which will certainly go up in the weeks and months ahead.
Also, Davis had a .139/.205/.306 slash line after 10 games last year and he recovered...
