Wheeler’s fast-track to the majors may have just hit a speed bump.
The team’s top positional prospect was injured when he took a foul tip off the foot while catching Wednesday night, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said.
Plenty of room for debate here, especially when talking about an organization that is struggling to find relevancy again.
According to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, the Mets are continuing to “monitor the situation” surrounding Giancarlo Stanton and Carlos Gonzalez.
Once regarded as a mere extra part in the R.A. Dickey trade with Toronto, John Buck is handling things quite well and looks like much more than a placeholder for Travis d’Arnaud.
The team’s top positional prospect has impressed his future teammates and coaches. You know, the ones headed to Queens in less than two weeks.
Shaun Marcum is making quite an impression this spring as the Mets shut out the Cardinals.
Day 1 at Port St. Lucie kicked off with second baseman Daniel Murphy. General manager Sandy Alderson and starting pitcher Matt Harvey followed. Jon Niese, Zack Wheeler, David Wright, Terry Collins and Travis d’Arnaud were present as well.
Welcome to a promising, yet uncomfortable, era of Mets baseball. While the manager has been a good soldier thus far during a rebuilding effort, it’s fair to ask how far that loyalty extends.
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.
No blocking the dish for the 24-year-old, who was described on the Mets’ official website as a player that “relishes home-plate collisions.”
Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy is feeling good about his health — and the future in Flushing.
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.
There’s potential there. There’s a chance. There’s a job to be won for a player who was once a threatening major-league hitter — and could be again. And with the current state of this outfield, that hope and belief is all that Mets fans have right now.
NFL players are getting their pink slips and baseball’s beat writers have come to life. Yep, it’s that time already. Spring training. Pitchers and catchers.
