Mets sign LHP Matt Purke to minor league deal

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 19:38:52 GMT

With the Mets turning focus towards the bullpen, as they look to turn around one of the league's worst from last season, we will hear from some familiar names (like the rest of MLB, they will be kicking the tires on Addison Reed and Brandon Morrow), but also some lesser-known relievers with established histories of success. One right-hander they will likely be looking at that fits this mold is Bryan Shaw. The 30-year-old put in two solid years with the Diamondbacks before blossoming over five excellent seasons with the Indians. His pitching coach there? Mickey Callaway, who knows a good arm when he sees one. Shaw made 378 appearances for Cleveland from 2011-2017 and hits free agency having put



Callaway connection could make Bryan Shaw a great fit for Mets

Chris Woodward interviewed for the Yankees’ managerial position

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 20:10:24 GMT

The Yankees interviewed Aaron Boone for their managerial vacancy on Friday, and today it was Chris Woodward’s turn. Like fellow candidate Eric Wedge, whom the Yankees interviewed just last week, Woodward has never played or coached for the club.



Deadline to add Rule 5-eligible players to 40-man roster is Monday

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 20:30:50 GMT

The deadline to add Rule-5 eligible players to 40-man rosters is this coming Monday at 8 p.m. ET. Eligible players left off the roster can be selected by another organization during the Rule 5 Draft, which is held each year at the MLB Winter Meetings in early-December. According to MLB.com, the Mets have five players from their Top 30 Prospect list that are eligible, including Luis Guillorme, Jhoan Urena, Gerson Bautista, and Corey Oswalt. Michael Mayer of MMO believes the team would be wise to also protect 24-year-old RHP Tyler Bashlor, who, though he is not ranked on MLB.com's top prospect list, struck out 84 batters in 49 innings between Double- and Single-A last season. The team's current



Deadline set for Monday for Shohei Ohtani's posting agreement

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 12:30:22 GMT

The Mets will not rule out a pursuit of Japanese two-way star Shohei Ohtani, GM Sandy Alderson said on Wednesday. The final hurdle for Ohtani is the MLBPA allowing the old posting system to be grandfathered in to allow his Japanese club to post him for a fee of $20 million -- with a deadline for a decision set for Monday, according to multiple reports. If the MLBPA does not allow Ohtani to be posted, he will not be able to come to the majors this coming season. Ohtani, 23, hit .332 with a .403 OBP, 8 home runs, 16 doubles, and 1 triple in 65 games this past season for Nippon, while playing right field and left field. During his five-year career as a pitcher, he has a 2.52 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with

The Mets signed left-hander Matt Purke to a minor league deal, the team announced Friday. Purke has not appeared in the majors since 2016, when he was used in a dozen relief appearances by the White Sox.
