The Mets may be 0-2 in the standings but they’ve had success at one thing: injuries. The Mets lead the league in putting people on the disabled list during the regular season after they put a second player there in as many days. Just one day after announcing that Bobby Parnell has an elbow injury […]
Meet the new season. Same as the old season.
Bobby Parnell had an MRI after complaining of tightness in his forearm after yesterday’s game. The MRI revealed a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right arm. This is the same type of injury that lead to Tommy John surgery for Matt Harvey. Parnell will rest for 2 weeks before being re-evaluated but it’s certainly possible he will suffer the same fate as Harvey.
I root for Ike Davis. Like any other member of the Mets I want him to succeed. But then the New York Post breaks a story about how Davis hid an injury and it upsets me. The injury, to his oblique, occurred while he was struggling early last season and was on the verge of […]
The day we all feared has finally come. The Mets announced yesterday that Johan Santana has a recurrence of the same injury that kept him out for the whole 2011 season and likely has thrown his last pitch as a Met, possibly of his career. I actually did not have very high expectations for Santana […]
Every time I start buying into the Sandy Alderson Mets being different than the Omar Minaya Mets something happens to bring things back into focus. This time it’s Andres Torres. Torres tweaked his already hurting left calf during yesterday’s opening day win over the Braves and will be placed on the disabled list. Kirk Nieuwenhuis […]
There are many injury worries in Mets camp this year (which seems to be par for the course for recent Mets camps) but the one that seems to be talked about the most lately is the one suffered by David Wright. Wright was in New York so team doctors could get a better look and […]
News came yesterday afternoon that David Wright has a stress fracture in his aching back. He’ll be out at least 10 days but will likely not need surgery. Almost immediately after hearing the news I thought the Mets would move Daniel Murphy to third base and call up Nick Evans to play first base. Turns […]
After further examination Ike Davis has been placed on the DL with an ankle sprain and bone bruise. Fernando Martinez was recalled from AAA Buffalo to take Davis’s roster spot. Daniel Murphy will move over to first base and leave second base to Justin Turner and Willie Harris. Though Murphy has experience at first base […]
The Mets have sent Ike Davis back to New York for an MRI on his ailing leg. Davis injured the leg last night in when he collided with David Wright while both were attempting to make a play on a popup in front of the mound. This is both bad news and good news. The […]
It’s beginning to feel a little like the Omar Minaya Mets again with the stories and denials about Johan Santana‘s stalled rehab. There was a report this weekend that attributed an unspecified person in the Mets organization saying the Mets may shut Santana down. Then Santana himself denied it. This coming less than a week […]
