Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada saw his disappointing season come to an end in the worst way Wednesday night.
The seven-time All-Star ran the bases last week and took live batting practice for the first time this past Saturday. He has a chance to play against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park this weekend.
First we heard Mets manager Terry Collins talking about a higher power or something after being asked about Matt Harvey…
Mets ace Matt Harvey will have his sore right elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews to help determine if the 24-year-old ace needs reconstruction surgery.
Mets captain baseman David Wright is expected to rejoin the team Monday to continue his rehab work for a strained right hamstring.
Davis left Saturday’s game at Washington with the injury. He grimaced and grabbed at his side after hitting a sacrifice fly. He bent over near home plate and didn’t even try to run to first base.
Daisuke Matsuzaka realizes his poor results in three starts with the Mets could jeopardize his spot in the rotation. Even so, it appears the right-hander will be given at least one more chance.
Wright was headed to the Mets’ complex in Florida on Thursday, a day before the team begins a nine-game road trip. He said he feels fine swinging and fielding, but he’s not running full speed and isn’t ready for rehab games.
Terry Collins says Harvey was encouraged after talking to other pitchers who had similar symptoms or injuries and didn’t require surgery, including “Doc” Halladay.
“Thank you everyone for the kind words and support. I may be done this year, but I will be back next year for April 1,” Harvey posted on Twitter.
For now, the 24-year-old Harvey and the Mets hope that he will be able to avoid reconstruction surgery on the ulnar collateral ligament. A full prognosis will not be made until swelling in the elbow goes down in about two weeks.
How could this happen? Matt Harvey was a pitcher, a max-effort guy, but with a clean delivery that certainly didn’t look like he was putting undue stress on his arm.
WFAN host Mike Francesa broke the news first on Monday that Mets ace Matt Harvey will likely land on the disabled list, and could potentially miss the rest of the season.
Collins says Duda will primarily be a backup to first baseman Ike Davis and can serve as the designated hitter.
It’s all about windows. The Yanks’ is closing, and not just because of the Alex Rodriguez mess. The windows around Citi Field are wide open.
