JEREMY HEFNER RUMORS

Jeremy Hefner Throws For First Time Since Tommy John Surgery

Jeremy Hefner threw today for the first time since undergoing Tommy John Surgery in late August at the Mets Spring Training Complex in Port St. Lucie. Hefner, who announced via Twitter that he was cleared to play yesterday, made 20 tosses at 60 feet today and said he felt “great”, said Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. I threw a baseball 173 days post-surgery.A lot of fun feeling...

Mets Sign Jeremy Hefner Despite Non-Tendering Him A Week Ago

File this under the stockpiling arms for a rainy day fund because Anthony DiComo of MLB.com is reporting that the Mets have signed Jeremy Hefner, who was a non-tender victim just about a week ago. Oddly enough, Hefner will not pitch in 2014 after having Tommy John Surgery late last year. It's noteworthy that Hefner declined comment about his non-tender last week, stating he...

The Reasons For Jeremy Hefner’s Marked Improvement

Jeremy Hefner was drafted by the Mets out of high school in the 46th round of the 2004 June amateur draft.  He chose not to sign.  One year later, the Mets selected Hefner in the 48th round of the June amateur draft.  Once again, Hefner did not sign.  Instead, he transferred from small Seminole State College in Oklahoma to the much-larger and more scoutable Oral Roberts University...

The complete turnaround of Jeremy Hefner

For most of last year and for the first two months of this season, the only thing Jeremy Hefner had in common with that famous dude with the same last name was that both took a lot of early showers. This season, not only did Hefner lose his first five decisions, but the Mets lost the game in all ten of his first ten appearances. That was not good. In fact, the Mets lost twelve of...

Mets pitcher pulls off photobombs

Baseball’s fun when you’re winning. And, for the Mets, taking 13 of their last 21 is about as good as it’s been in a long time. Jeremy Hefner is a big part of that recent success. Who you may ask? Even most serious baseball fans can be excused for not being familiar with Hefner. Prior to the last month, he’s been a borderline major leaguer at best. In fact, I’d always questioned...

Jeremy Hefner Has Been The Second Best Pitcher In Mets Rotation

There have been a few nice surprises to the Mets 2013 season so far, not as many as we’d prefer, but certainly a few good ones. Jeremy Hefner is one of them. Initially, Hefner was not given not much of a chance to make the rotation, and was looked upon as a long reliever in the back of the bullpen at best. But the Moore, OK. native showed no quit this past Spring and forced himself...

Jeremy Hefner Pitching For Rotation Spot – Again

In which direction will the streak-prone Mets go? After winning four straight against the Yankees, they turned about face and were swept by the Miami Marlins. They are in Washington for the start of a three-game series tonight, but these aren’t the same Nationals the national media gave a bye straight into the World Series. Bryce Harper is on the disabled list and Stephen Strasburg...

Jeremy Hefner Tries To Stop Mets’ Slide

Jeremy Hefner: Streak stopper. Some clairvoyant on television said this morning, “the Mets have lost five straight for the first time this season.’’  He’s probably right, but that’s an awful assumption. All streaks must end somewhere, and while Matt Harvey didn’t stop the slide last night, the Mets will ask Hefner to do it tonight. Hefner, who hasn’t been consistently...

Is Jeremy Hefner en route to becoming a rotation mainstay?

After pitching six quality innings in which he gave up just five hits and two walks while limiting the Marlins to one run in a no-decision, it certainly appears that Hefner is here to stay in the Mets’ rotation. The criminally underrated Hefner is a pitcher who gets by on grit and determination. While not blessed with the greatest stuff, Hefner is your classic bulldog who battles...

Can Jeremy Hefner seize the moment in 2013?

Back in October I referred to Jeremy Hefner as undervalued because most people looked at his traditional statistics (4-7, 5.09 ERA) and determined that he was not very good. But if you looked at other numbers, he displayed a bunch of promise. Those numbers were a 4.06 xFIP, a 1.3 fWAR and a .615 Quality Start percentage. The Mets’ plan appeared to be to use Hefner as a long...
