Las Vegas 51s
It seems Wally isn’t so popular in Flushing these days — at least among Mets brass.
Triple-A manager Wally Backman says Ike Davis is “gonna get right” in Las Vegas. Well, maybe he will — with a little family support.
“I want the kid to go up there and just look strictly for fastballs, and fastballs that he can drive,” Backman said. “…We’ll make the adjustments that need to be made for this guy. He’s gonna get right.”
The Mets have sent down Collin McHugh and called up David Aardsma from Triple-A Las Vegas
Sending Ike Davis down to Triple-A potentially could harm his already damaged psyche. Either way, Sandy Alderson must make a decision now.
Just when will Mets fans get a glimpse at stud prospect Zack Wheeler?
“He’s turning the corner, that is what we have seen the last two starts,” Backman said. “If we see that a couple of more starts, he’s going to be pushing the door open himself, forcing the issue for sure.”
“I’m not after Terry’s job,” Wally Backman said. “But my goal is definitely to manage in the big leagues.”
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.
