NY Mets showing awareness of their defensive shortcomings

The New York Mets are routinely finishing games in 2020 with a better defensive alignment, proving they are fully aware of their shortcomings on that side of the baseball. When the New York Mets went out and acquired Jake Marisnick this winter it was obvious why. The team needed some defensive help in the outfield, […] NY Mets showing awareness of their defensive shortcomings - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community

Mets trade Jordan Humhreys to Giants for outfielder Billy Hamilton

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ Hamilton gives the Mets speed and defensive skill. The Mets have traded right-handed pitching prospect Jordan Humphreys to the Giants in exchange for outfielder Billy Hamilton. Humphreys was one of several players designated for assignment by the team during the first week of the 60-game 2020 season. In his case, he was DFA’d to make room for Ryan Cordell, who was activated to take the place of Jake Marisnick, who hit the injured list shortly after the season began with a left hamstring injury. Humphreys did not make our list of the Mets’ top 25 prospects for...

Mets designate Humphreys for assignment, place Marisnick on injured list, call up Cordell

Jordan Humphreys | Chris McShane The Mets’ 40-man roster crunch might cost them a solid young pitcher. The Mets have designated right-handed pitching prospect Jordan Humphreys for assignment, placed outfielder Jake Marisnick on the injured list with an injury to his left hamstring, and called up outfielder Ryan Cordell. The team has a 40-man roster crunch that has necessitated making space for players called up from its alternate site in Brooklyn, with reliever Tyler Bashlor having been DFA’d just yesterday. Humphreys didn’t make our list of the Mets’ top 25 prospects coming into...

Mets Morning News for July 21, 2020

Meet the Mets Luis Rojas formally announced that Jed Lowrie would begin the season on the injured list with left knee discomfort, adding to an already bizarre and sad situation for the veteran. Somehow, the ongoing Lowrie injury saga has gotten even worse. Walker Lockett landed on the IL with lower back discomfort. Outfielder Jake Marisnick’s Opening Day status is in jeopardy as he deals with “a little bit of [left] hamstring tightness”, according to the skipper. He participated in...

The outfielder didn’t play in the pair of exhibition games against the Yankees over the weekend and was not in the lineup again Monday for the Mets’ intrasquad game.

Mets say Jake Marisnick is day-to-day with hamstring tightness

Photo by Rich Schultz/ The outfielder is one of several Mets dealing with an injury right now. Mets outfielder Jake Marisnick, for whom the team traded over the winter, has been dealing with left hamstring tightness. The 29-year-old had been absent from the team’s lineups in a pair of exhibition games with the Yankees over the weekend and its intrasquad lineups for a game happening tonight. Marisnick spent the past several years with the Astros, most recently hitting .233/.289/.411 with 10 home runs in 318 plate appearances last year, even as the team was operating a sign-stealing...

Ryan Cordell could make the 40-man roster, but probably won’t

Cordell played most of last season in right field for the White Sox | Photo by Rich Schultz/ With Nimmo’s bat and Marisnick’s experience, there isn’t much room for Cordell At the beginning of the offseason, the Mets roster included two all-star caliber right fielders, a power-hitting left-fielder with little hope of seeing the field again, two infielders learning how to play the outfield to keep their valuable bats in the lineup, and no good center field option. In December, the team addressed their biggest defensive hole by trading for Astros center fielder Jake Marisnick, a...

Mets outfielder Jake Marisnick should be the right upgrade over Juan Lagares

Jake Marisnick should be able to replicate some of the things Juan Lagares did well and bring a little more power to the New York Mets in 2020. It feels like ages since Juan Lagares was with the New York Mets. Amazingly, he played in 133 of the team’s 162 games in 2019.

A lot has to happen for Matt Adams to play for the Mets this season

The Mets already employ a solid left-handed power-hitting first baseman | Photo by Michael Reaves/ There isn’t much room on the roster for the veteran slugger. The theme of this past offseason’s signings for the Mets was acquiring depth. They signed Michael Wacha and Rick Porcello to strengthen the back end of the starting rotation. They also signed Dellin Betances and Brad Bach as supporting middle relievers. Outfielder Jake Marisnick and infielder Eduardo Núñez also joined the party as potential backups. And in January, the Mets signed veteran Matt Adams to a one-year deal to...
