Trade rumor: Mets could package Addison Reed with others

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 21:30:23 GMT

The Mets have discussed the idea of packaging Addison Reed with another big league player in order to improve a potential return, reports Marc Carig of Newsday. Aside from Reed, the Mets are open to trading Asdrubal Cabrera, Lucas Duda, Jay Bruce, and Curtis Granderson, among others. The Rays are one of the teams interested in Reed, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post. As of July 21, there were at least six teams interested in trading Reed, according to Carig. Reed, who is eligible for free agency after the season, has a 2.63 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with 48 strikeouts in 48.0 innings (47 games).  Reactions and insight from Matthew Cerrone... July 24, 2017: It's going to be impossible to predict

Rays continue playoff push, acquire Lucas Duda from Mets

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 21:57:49 GMT

The Rays acquired Lucas Duda to help with their playoff push. The Tampa Bay Rays may have picked up the boost they need in the second half. The team added some pop to its lineup Thursday, acquiring New York Mets first baseman Lucas Duda for pitcher Drew Smith, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.

Neil Walker started at 3B during Wednesday's rehab game

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 14:45:11 GMT

Mets second baseman Neil Walker started at third base Wednesday during a rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas, according to Walker, who has only played second base for the Mets, has played just 15 games at third base during his nine-year career. His last appearance at third was in 2010 for the Pirates. "We just want to protect ourselves," manager Terry Collins said when asked about the potential position switch. "We want to make sure we cover all the bases. We talked to Neil about it and he was fine with it." In 60 games this year, Walker is batting .270 with a .356 OBP, nine HR and 33 RBI. He was put on the disabled list June 15 with a torn hamstring. He started his rehab assignment this

Mets' Flexen to make debut vs. Padres

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 14:19:00 GMT

Terry Collins is like just about everyone else when it comes to rookie starter Chris Flexen. The manager is not quite sure what the New York Mets have with the talented right-hander who will make his major-league debut Thursday against the San Diego Padres. "I do know he can hit a golf ball a long way," Collins said.

What can the Mets expect from Chris Flexen?

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 15:45:09 GMT

To fill the latest hole in the rapidly dwindling Mets rotation, the Mets made an unexpected call in promoting right-hander Chris Flexen from Double-A Binghamton. This came as a surprise for a team that has rigorously stuck with a patient approach with its prospects, giving them extended exposure to Triple-A to further develop them. The last Mets prospect to skip Triple-A entirely was Michael Conforto in July 2015. The last pitcher to do so was fringe reliever Akeel Morris, who arrived from High-A, got shelled, and is now with the Braves organization. Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, and Seth Lugo all spent most of a full season in Las Vegas, if not more, regardless of results. A big reason for

Cespedes looking to change workout program to focus more on flexibility

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 14:14:04 GMT

After dealing with nagging leg injuries this season, Yoenis Cespedes wants to change his workout regimen in a way that focuses on him being a more athletic player, he told the New York Post.  Cespedes, who has spent time on the disabled list with hamstring and quad injuries, wants to focus less on the weight training he put an emphasis on this offseason. "I want to become more flexible, more athletic, have less bulk [in my legs]," Cespedes told the Post. "I want to do less weight lifting. I'm going to do some different things, I want to do yoga, more stretching. I want to be lighter. I want to come back around 210, lose about 15 pounds.'' While Cespedes has appeared in a little more than half

Market developing for Asdrubal Cabrera, as Giants trade 3B Nunez

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 13:00:55 GMT

The Red Sox reportedly had interest in trading for Mets infielder Asdrubal Cabrera. However, they instead acquired 3B Eduardo Nunez from the Giants in exchange for RH pitching prospects Shaun Anderson and Gregory Santos, the two teams announced Tuesday. Nevertheless, by twice playing third base this week, "a solid market has developed for Cabrera, leading to optimism that the Mets may find a trade partner before the deadline," sources told Newsday's Marc Carig. The Mariners and Indians remain among multiple teams interested in Cabrera, a major league source said July 25, according to NY Post reporter Mike Puma. Reaction and insight from Matthew Cerrone... July 26, 2017: The Mets aren't going

Padres, Mets showcase talent for potential trades

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 10:03:14 GMT

How else to explain the Mets trotting out two-time All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera at third base? Cabrera is expected to be on the hot corner when the Mets face Jhoulys Chacin (9-7, 4.26 ERA) on Wednesday.

Trade Rumor: Cubs among several teams interested in Seth Lugo

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 16:40:23 GMT

The Cubs are among several teams who have expressed interest in trading for Mets RHP Seth Lugo, reports Jerry Crasnick of ESPN. The Cubs love Lugo's spin rate and 'think he has breakout potential,' notes Crasnick, who says the Mets are not motivated to deal Lugo. Lugo, 27, missed the first two months of this season due to a torn UCL that he rehabbed and is pitching through in an effort to avoid Tommy John surgery. He has a 4.10 ERA (4.25 FIP) and 1.35 WHIP with 34 strikeouts in 52 2/3 innigs (eight starts) this season. Lugo posted a 2.67 ERA (4.33 FIP) and 1.09 WHIP with 45 strikeouts in 54 innings (eight starts, nine relief appearances) in 2016, during what was his rookie season. He is not eligible

Robert Gsellman to begin rehab assignment on Thursday

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 17:35:18 GMT

The Rays have interest in Lucas Duda and Addison Reed, the NY Post's Mike Puma tweeted July 25. Duda, Yonder Alonso (A's), and Justin Bour (Marlins) are considered the top first basemen available on the trade market, according to a recent post on MLB Trade Rumors. Despite acquiring Todd Frazier, the Yankees are still interested in all three,'s Mark Feinsand reported last week. However, local reports indicate Bour will soon head to the disabled list after straining an oblique muscle during Monday night's game. It would be his second DL stint this season.

Dilson Herrera has season-ending surgery

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 18:10:36 GMT

Reds infielder Dilson Herrera will undergo surgery to remove bone spurs from his right shoulder. His season is over. Herrera, you may recall, was acquired from the Mets in the Jay Bruce trade last year. He played in 49 games for the Mets, but spent all of last year and this year in the minors. In parts of seven minor league seasons he’s hit .295/.357/.461 with 67 homers and 87 stolen bases in 631 games. Herrera, one time a top-5 prospect of the Mets, was expected to play in the bigs this year, but hasn’t. He was expected to challenge for the starting second base job for the Reds next year, but that’s obviously in doubt now. The worst part: he’ll be out of minor league options next year, so the

Cespedes leads Mets past Padres 6-5

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 07:31:04 GMT

Yoenis Cespedes hit a big league homer - and one of the Little League variety to help power the New York Mets to another victory. Cespedes had three RBIs and finished a single shy of the cycle as the Mets beat the San Diego Padres 6-5 to win for the sixth time in seven games. Facing reliever Phil Maton, Cespedes punched a pitch down the right-field line with Curtis Granderson aboard after an inning-opening single.
