Coleman: Elvin Gone, Marcum Listed, Niese Ready And Kirk Not Beamed Down — Yet

The Mets made the first of what might be several minor moves to free up 40-man roster space by trading righty reliever Elvin Ramirez to the Angels for cash on Wednesday night.

Coleman: Which Mets Pitcher Will Get Hurt Next? ; Wright, Murphy Inching Closer

When the hard comebacker off the bat of Carlos Beltran (of course it was him) smashed off the right elbow of Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner on Tuesday afternoon, you just had to laugh — to keep from crying.

Sims: Taking A Closer Look At Shaun Marcum’s Injury

If Marcum is expected to return to the lineup shortly, his condition is likely of the uncomplicated variety. However, as with all overuse injuries, too much too soon leads to increased vulnerability. Take heed, Marcum.

Coleman: Luckily For Mets, Marcum Injury Doesn’t Appear Serious

While Mets have had their share of injuries during spring training, but Shaun Marcum’s right shoulder doesn’t appear to be a major issue.

Coleman: Sandy Alderson Breaks Down Plan For David Wright Moving Forward

Instead of traveling to Port St. Lucie to be examined, Mets third baseman David Wright boarded a plane in Miami and flew to New York to be examined by team doctors. General manager Sandy Alderson made the announcement on Friday morning.

Coleman: Harvey Brilliant, Wheeler Working — Finally, Good Vibes At Mets Camp

Matt Harvey stepped to the mound to restore some sanity to the proceedings on Thursday, giving a glimpse of just what might be in store for Mets fans this season and in the seasons that lie ahead.

Coleman: Rafael Montero, Cory Mazzoni Among Young Pitchers Impressing For Mets

Montero is not the only young arm drawing raves. Cory Mazzoni, the Mets’ second-round pick in 2011 out of North Carolina State, has started camp with five scoreless innings while allowing just one hit, no walks and three strikeouts.

Coleman: Battery Of Matt Harvey, Travis D’Arnaud Gels In Kissimmee

Harvey pitched his initial two innings of the spring against the Astros, concentrating on keeping his fastball down in the zone, and he thought d’Arnaud did an excellent job of helping him get strikes.

Coleman: Don’t Expect To See Johan Santana On Opening Day

“Delayed somewhat” means being pushed back to the March 10-15 range, which makes it highly doubtful that Santana could get enough work in to be ready by April 1.

Coleman: Wright Believes In Underdog Mets, Is Excited For What’s To Come

So will Wright be named captain of the Mets sometime soon? Collins will begin the process of what will eventually become a “C” on his No. 5 uniform, but everyone already knows who the leader and captain of this ship is.

Coleman: Santana Back On The Mound For First Time Since August

On a cold, blustery Florida Sunday — much like it might be on Opening Day at Citi Field — Johan Santana returned to the mound for the first time since being shut down for good last season in August.

When Marlon Byrd arrived at camp on Friday, Terry Collins sounded like he had found an answer to one of his problems.

Coleman: Is A New Day Dawning For The Mets?

When owner Fred Wilpon announced in Florida that the financial turmoil that had long plagued and hindered the franchise for many years was now a thing of the past, a huge cloud of uncertainty was lifted.

Coleman: Bobby Parnell Ready, Willing, Able To Step Up As Mets’ Closer

Parnell on Wednesday morning said that he appreciated manager Terry Collins’ phone call on Tuesday night — the message basically being, “Get ready, we may need you.”

Coleman: Wheeler Is Eager To Contribute Now, But His Time Will Come

Things will work out fine for Wheeler. Fellow stud right-hander Matt Harvey made his major league debut on July 26 last season. The “Wheels” should be rolling into Citi Field by that date this year — if not before.
