Mets' Matz has tender elbow, status for opening day in doubt (The Associated Press)

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 15:24:52 PDT

New York Mets pitcher Steven Matz has been scratched from his next start because of tenderness in his left elbow, putting his status for opening day in doubt. ''There's a little irritation, and he's got to work that out,'' Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday. While Matz hasn't been sent for an MRI, Alderson said the ailment is troubling because the 25-year-old has often been slowed during his two seasons with the Mets.

The same issue that plagued Wei-Yin Chen during his first season with the Miami Marlins continues to trouble him.

The solo shots for Yadier Molina and Dexter Fowler made it six homers allowed by the left-hander during spring training.

FANTASY PLAYS: Spring performances that should concern you (The Associated Press)

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 16:52:55 PDT

Sometimes fantasy baseball owners overrate spring training performances, both jumping on the good and overreacting to the bad. Here are some spring performances that should have you concerned with the MLB season nearly here. There were plenty of concerns with Carter's value even before the Yankees announced that Greg Bird would be the starting first baseman.



Syndergaard-D'Arnaud can't stop stolen bases (The Associated Press)

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 15:18:11 PDT

The Houston Astros demonstrated Friday what the rest of the league knows and the Mets realize themselves, but haven't been able to fix. Teams can run successfully on the battery of opening-day pitcher Noah Syndergaard and catcher Travis d'Arnaud - almost seemingly at will. The Astros were a perfect 4 for 4 in stolen bases at First Data Field in the right-hander's fourth start of the spring: three by Derek Fisher, the other by fellow outfielder Jake Marisnick.

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 15:49:32 PDT

If you need evidence of that, look no further than New York Mets infielder Asdrubal Cabrera. The frustrations of spring seemed to get the best of Cabrera on Thursday, as he was pretty much ejected from a game while running down to first base. Asdrubal Cabrera had some words with Angel Hernandez on Thursday.



Dallas Green, who managed Phillies to 1st title, dies at 82 (The Associated Press)

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 08:59:15 PDT

As a big league pitcher, Dallas Green was pretty mediocre. ''When you think of big, with that deep voice, that booming voice, he could hold a team meeting, boy, he could scare you right out of your seat,'' Cleveland manager Terry Francona recalled. Green, the tough-talking, no-nonsense skipper who in 1980 guided the Philadelphia Phillies to their first World Series championship, died Wednesday.

The United States routed Puerto Rico 8-0 to win its first World Baseball Classic in four tries on Wednesday night behind six hitless innings from Marcus Stroman. The Americans planted their eagle statue mascot on the mound in celebration, a blue cap jauntily hanging from one of its large wings. For a sport known as America's pastime, the U.S. had struggled since the WBC began in 2006.

New York Yankees’ slugger Greg Bird hits a 3-run home run during Wednesday’s game. BIRD IS THE WORD: He’s the owner of a famous cat’s grandson, and he’s also the starting first baseman for the New York Yankees. Manager Joe Girardi officially named Greg Bird his starter on Wednesday after Bird’s huge spring made it the only possible decision.



Matz, Wheeler struggle as opening day nears (The Associated Press)

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:22:24 PDT

Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler took a step back Wednesday in the Mets' 15-9 loss to the Miami Marlins, a shaky sign for New York with opening day less than two weeks away. Last time I was up out of the zone and had some walks,'' Matz said. You try to not let this stuff bother you, but still when you're getting hit around, it's never fun,'' Matz said.

MLB season preview: Mets pitchers are healthy and expectations are sky high (Big League Stew)

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 11:45:59 PDT

OK, maybe that’s not exactly it, but that sure is the gist of the season for the 2017 New York Mets, who lost in the wild-card game last season after their 2015 World Series run. The Mets went through so many pitching injuries last season that it’s a wonder they made the postseason. If they’d advanced any further, it would’ve been Noah Syndergaard and Bartolo Colon leading their rotation.

Beltran's ability in left could free space for Houston at DH (The Associated Press)

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 15:08:24 PDT

What designated hitter Carlos Beltran can do defensively this season will have a direct impact on what manager A.J. Hinch can try offensively. Beltran, who will turn 40 during the season's first month, will primarily serve as the Astros' DH. A center fielder much of his career who later moved to right, only two of Beltran's 2,179 career starts have come in left.

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 15:05:51 PDT

While Mets reliever Rafael Montero keeps pushing hard to make the club's final roster out of spring training, one vital piece of the bullpen returned to the New York's clubhouse on Sunday as Fernando Salas arrived for the second time in camp. Salas reported in February, did his work and left to pitch for Team Mexico in the World Baseball Classic before ever appearing in a spring training game for the Mets. After appearing in two games for Mexico and tossing just one inning, the 31-year-old Salas found out his visa wasn't in order, keeping him from returning to Florida.

FANTASY PLAYS: Spring training performances that matter (The Associated Press)

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 18:02:36 PDT

Despite being told yearly that spring training statistics are overrated, fantasy baseball owners still buy into them and will over or underrate players as a result. With the 2017 Fantasy Baseball season fast approaching, here are some player performances that actually mean something.

Max Scherzer probably will miss Nationals' opener (The Associated Press)

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 19:13:21 PDT

NL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer probably will miss the Washington Nationals' opener against Miami on April 3 because of a stress fracture in his right ring finger. The stress fracture had caused Scherzer to change the grip on his fastball, placing three fingers on top of the ball instead of two, but he went back to his old grip Thursday during his first game action this year, a three-inning stint in a minor league exhibition against New York Mets' Triple-A players. ''That's the really good news today,'' said Scherzer, who struck out five.
