New York Mets
Jon Niese began his rehab assignment for the New York Mets with two inning to recover from a partially torn rotator cuff and might not be available until late August if not early September. While it might be tempting to shut him down for the remainder of the season, there is an importance of him pitching again this year.
NIESE: Needs to pitch this year. (AP)
First, for Niese’s peace of mind, he’d like to enter the offseason with an idea of where he stands physically. This makes mapping out his winter conditioning and throwing programs easier and alleviates a repeat of what happened last year with Johan Santana.
The more information the Mets know about Niese the better, not only for the left-hander’s off-season training, but also for their shopping lists. If they suspect a strong return from Niese, that could give them the freedom of making a trade.
How much Niese will pitch the rest of the season, nobody knows, but getting out there is important because it alleviates the wonder and ...

New York Mets' left handed pitcher Jon Niese, who has been on the disabled list since June 21, made his first Minor League rehab start with the Gulf Coast Mets on Saturday.
As reported by Anthony DiComo of MLB.com,
""I don't know how many more he's got to go," manager Terry Collins
said of Niese's rehab assignment, which can last up to a month...
With the trade Deadline a little over three days away (July 31st - 4 PM), it is not expected nor anticipated that the Mets will make any moves, which seems to be the norm.
I do believe that they do have some trade options that do not include moving any of their young pitching prospects/studs.
Daniel Murphy is on a hot streak right now, and my logic all along is to sell high, and...
Sometimes I wonder where would the Mets be right now if they had only started the season with Juan Lagares as their Opening Day centerfielder as I had hoped all along.
As he tore up Triple-A pitching to the tune of .346/.378/.551 while playing the best centerfield I’ve ever seen since Carlos Beltran was in his prime, it frustrated me to see the parade of scrubs, journeymen and...
Every so often there’s a player that everybody loves to hate. In the past it was players like Oliver Perez, Luis Castillo, and even Mike Pelfrey to some extent towards the end of his Mets tenure. This year it’s Jordany Valdespin. Whether it’s because of his attitude rubbing people the wrong way or his statistics, he is probably the most disliked player on the team. While...
Last night, a red-hot Jordany Valdespin went 3-for-3 with a double, triple, three runs scored, a walk and an RBI as he continues to demolish the Pacific Coast League. If he isn’t name the PCL Player of the Week on Monday I’d be shocked…
In his last ten games, Spin is batting .573 and overall since his demotion, the 25-year old enigma has a .513/.578/.821 slash with a 1.398...

The Mets have stated that Matt Harvey is going to be capped at around 210 innings. Similarly, Zack Wheeler will have his season come to an end when he reaches 185 innings. As of today, Harvey has competed 145 innings, while Wheeler has tossed 108⅔ innings between AAA-Las Vegas and the Mets. That leaves approximately ten starts for both Harvey and Wheeler...
Outside of third base, there aren’t a lot of positions on the Mets that one could consider truly “locked up,” but first base is one that many felt had had a flag planted by Ike Davis by the end of last season. True, this would have been an assumption primarily based on 1 ½ seasons of decent play at the big league level, but players who have produced 30+ home run seasons along...
Yes, it seems as though “Happy Days are Here Again” for us New York Mets fans. Because the sun has again begun peeking through our dark clouds of misery, its time to relax a bit and take a look back, with nostalgic fondness, at some of our most unhappiest players. Without further ado:
1. Vince Coleman (1993): Among other things, he threw firecrackers into a crowd of fans...
Lucas Duda, who has been on the shelf with an intercostal strain, is making a forward step in his rehab assignment, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York:

Ah, the trading deadline; my favorite time of year. It’s the midseason plot point where words like “blockbuster” are thrown around like clothes in a dryer and can change the fate of any team.
I don’t think a blockbuster is in the Mets’ near future. I do believe there are trades that can be made if Sandy Alderson decides to lift his backside from his chair and pull his hands...
This recap will be short, but not so sweet….
The Mets head to Miami for a four-game series with the Marlins tomorrow night. Jeremy Hefner opposes Jacob Turner at 7:10 pm.
MIAMI (AP) -- Ike Davis had a go-ahead RBI double in a three-run seventh inning, Daniel Murphy drove in three runs, and the New York Mets snapped a five-game skid against the Miami Marlins with a 6-5 victory Monday night.
David Aardsma (2-0) pitched an inning in relief of Jeremy Hefner for the win. Bobby Parnell retired Giancarlo Stanton with runners on first and third to end it...
The Mets and Nationals play game three today after splitting the day/night double header yesterday. The constants in yesterday’s games were the starting pitching and Daniel Murphy. The starters Mejia and Harvey both had tremendous games and Murphy was on fire in both games. The difference was the rest of the lineup which roared to a 11-0 victory in the opener and could only score...
