JOHN MAYBERRY RUMORS

Will John Mayberry Jr. signing hurt Eric Campbell, too?

Barring any Spring Training trade (ha!) or injury, the Mets’ 2015 Opening Day roster is pretty much set. There’s the usual battles for roster spots 23-25 but hopefully those are among players who have already seen time in the majors last year with the Mets. We all hope that the days of an NRI like Blaine Boyer coming to camp and winning a job with 10 good innings of Grapefruit...

Mayberry should add punch in 2015

With it becoming more and more evident every day that Wilmer Flores is likely to be the 2015 Opening Day shortstop, the Mets used the Winter Meetings to fill a few gaps in their roster – a second lefty out of the bullpen (Rule 5 draftee Sean Gilmartin and Scott Rice re-signing on a minor league deal) and a righty-hitting outfield bat (John Mayberry Jr). While none of the moves...

Mets Have John Mayberry Jr. On Their Radar

According to Marc Carig of Newsday, the Mets have free agent outfielder/first baseman John Mayberry, Jr. on their radar.

John Mayberry and Wasted Resources

Back in December, I argued against tendering a contract to John Mayberry, suggesting that his salary outweighed his projected contributions. Mayberry was worth rostering when he made the league minimum and exhibited upside, but he was well past both points. There was no risk to letting him go, because despite his athleticism and versatility, he had been a replacement-level player...

Could Mayberry’s Days as a Phillie Be Numbered?

The big news from Spring Training today came from comments made by manager Ryne Sandberg. Sandberg’s comments were in reference to where he sees a number of players on the 2014 roster. There were some surprises, Darin Ruf will see equal time at first base and left field, some news was not as surprising, Jesse Biddle will likely start the year in Triple-A Lehigh Valley, and then...

Phillies must trade John Mayberry before tomorrow's Rule 5 Draft

John Mayberry must not be on the Phillies 40-man roster this time tomorrow. Mayberry must be traded tonight. Why the urgency? The Phillies were given a gift last week when they earned an extra Rule 5 draft selection from the Cubs through a grievance. It gives the Phillies the 4th and 7th picks in tomorrow's Rule 5 draft. Problem is, they have two selections in the draft and...
