Dillon Gee and Jeremy Hefner each had a poor day in the Mets’ final warmup before Opening Day.
“He’s just kind of in a bit of shock,” Wright said. “I don’t think anyone was expecting this. For everyone, it’s kind of shocking. It’s disheartening.”
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.
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.
They’ll just have to wait for Santana and hope that the brilliant future that awaits Harvey is now. Santana won’t pitch in a game until he can throw a ball 180 feet. So far, he’s only halfway there.
It’s a question that seemed unthinkable during the winter months and at the start of spring training: which team will have more talent on April 1?
Gee pitched six scoreless innings and struck out seven as the Mets topped the Braves, 7-4. Gee had allowed 11 earned runs in his previous two starts and missed the second half of last season with a blood clot in his right shoulder.
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.
Lucas Duda took his spring RBI total to 7 after he collected two more RBIs in the Mets 9-6 win over the Astros.
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.
Right-hander Carl Pavano — who is no stranger to the Big Apple — is on the Mets’ radar. The 36-year-old’s agent told the Newark Star Ledger that there is “mutual interest” between both sides. However, talks are “very preliminary,” the newspaper reported.
Ike Davis hit his 32nd homer and Scott Hairston got his 20th Wednesday to help the New York Mets win their season finale by beating the Miami Marlins 4-2.
David Wright broke the New York Mets’ record for hits and Jeremy Hefner bounced back from a horrendous start in a 6-0 victory over Pittsburgh on Wednesday night that eliminated the Pirates from playoff contention.
Things can’t get any worse for the rock bottom Mets.
Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley sparked an eight-run first inning, Ryan Howard added a late grand slam and the Philadelphia Phillies routed the inept New York Mets 16-1 before a few hundred fans Thursday night at quiet Citi Field.
