Found March 28, 2013 on New York Mets Report:
DARIN GORSKI: Is he officially a reliever now? Adam Rubin of ESPN New York took to Twitter a short while ago and began posting his projections for the Mets Triple-A roster. Included in his Las Vegas 51′s rotation he has: Zack Wheeler, Aaron Laffey, Collin McHugh, Chris Schwinden and Carlos Torres. A month ago I projected the rotation as follows: Zack Wheeler Collin McHugh Mark Cohoon Darin Gorski Aaron Laffey That was what I had once I removed Mejia, who has been shutdown for at least a month, and Hefner who won a job in the Mets rotation.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets are expected to waive infielder Reese Havens and left-hander Darin Gorski to make room on their 40-Man roster. The process would involve exposing them to waivers. If they clear, they can be outrighted to the minors. I can see either of the two being picked up, but it’s 50/50. Rubin writes about them: Havens, a first-round pick...

Final Word On Wheeler and Rodriguez Incident

Updated by Joe D. at 7:30 PM Most of you read my initial thoughts on Wheeler-gate early this morning; I think it was overblown. I wanted to just say one last thing in lieu of Sandy Alderson’s comments regarding the situation while a guest on WFAN. Here is what he said: “We didn’t want this to escalate into an issue,” Alderson said. “We have had extensive conversations with...

Don’t Force Wheeler Because Of Marcum

There are two no-brainers in place for the Mets with their latest injury news. The first was the slam-dunk Shaun Marcum would be injured. The surprise was it happened before the team broke camp, but considering the shape he reported in, well, maybe not so much. WHEELER: Not ready. The second is the inevitable early clamor for the Mets to promote prospect Zack Wheeler, which should...

Mets Prospects Disciplined After On-Field Incident

Reports surfaced on Friday morning of an altercation between Mets prospects Zack Wheeler and Aderlin Rodriguez.

He led all Mets minor league players last season with 24 home runs and was listed as No. 15...
