Jay Bruce’s injury situation comes into greater focus

DENVER — Jay Bruce’s soreness that landed him on the disabled list has at least some rudimentary explanation. An MRI exam on Wednesday revealed the Mets outfielder has a “strain” in his hip, according to manager Mickey Callaway, and a course of treatment is under discussion. “There is definitely something in there that showed up...

A.J. Ramos has torn labrum, will undergo season-ending surgery

Ramos was acquired late last season by the Mets. A.J. Ramos will undergo surgery on Wednesday for a torn labrum, which will end his 2018 season. The reliever had his shoulder examined on May 27 and was placed on the disabled list with shoulder soreness on May 28. He was reportedly considering surgery on his shoulder last week, and now he is going under the knife. The Mets were relying on Ramos to be a big part of their bullpen this season, but he struggled tremendously in 19.2 innings this year, posting an unsightly 6.81 ERA with a 5.13 FIP. He was walking even more batters per inning than...

Mets place Jay Bruce on disabled list

Bruce has finally hit the DL. The Mets have announced that right fielder Jay Bruce has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a right hip injury. Bruce had also been battling plantar fasciitis in his left foot and back issues. He had to be scratched from the lineup in yesterday’s game against the Colorado Rockies principally due to the hip issue. The Mets have called up reliever Tim Peterson from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Bruce on the roster. Bruce has struggled at the plate this year, hitting just .212/.292/.321 with three home runs and only 17 RBIs. Last year with the...

Player Meter: Pitchers, June 11-17

A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Seth Lugo had his first poor start of the season, but the rest of the starting rotation pitched well enough to keep the Mets in the game. However, outside of Robert Gsellman, the bullpen had uneven performances across the board. During Jeurys Familia’s time on the disabled list, Robert Gsellman has become the most relied upon member of the Mets bullpen. And one could argue that he already was prior to Familia’s injury and should remain so. Gsellman tossed 2 1⁄3 scoreless innings this week, protecting...

What to make of Domingo German in the Yankees’ starting rotation

The right-hander has held his own so far in the majors, but is there cause for concern? If there’s one thing I’ve learned so far in 2018 watching Yankee baseball, it’s “don’t panic during the first inning”. The team has so much offensive depth that they lead the league in come from behind wins, and just in the last week we’ve seen New York strike late to beat the Mets and Rays. The principle applies to the pitching side as well, especially in games Domingo German starts. Thrust into a rotation spot to cover for Jordan Montgomery, German is building a reputation for giving up...

Milwaukee Brewers listed as possible match for a Jacob deGrom trade

He’s a legitimate ace, but will come at a high price. After a hot start to the season, the New York Mets have fallen out of contention over the last several weeks. They are just 1-9 over their last 10 games, have seen their record plummet to 28-38, and are 10.5 games back in their division and 9.0 games back of a Wild Card spot. They’ve dealt with injuries, under performance, and an offense that has seemingly evaporated. With all that as a backdrop, the conversation nationally has turned towards a possible fire sale in Queens. The most valuable player that New York has to sell right now...

New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays: Domingo German vs. Blake Snell

Let’s start the series off with a win. Remember when the Yankees’ home opener was snowed out? The Yankees somehow haven’t played the Rays since that two-game series in early April. Tonight they’ll kick off a four-game series with Domingo German set to take the mound opposite of Blake Snell. German has been all over the place this season, but is coming off of one of his better starts. He held the Mets to just three runs over six innings during the weekend. The Rays don’t have much of a rotation at the moment, but Snell has been a bright spot. The lefty has surrendered just three...

Pitching, offense, and defense doom Mets

Pretty much everything went wrong. This was quite a roller coaster of a game, but eventually the Mets hit the down slope and kept right on hurtling down the track for an 8-2 loss. In the first few innings it seemed like more of the same with the offense. Mike Foltynewicz looked untouchable for Atlanta, and when Ender Inciarte gave the Braves a 1-0 lead in the fourth, it seemed like there was a real possibility that would be the final score. However, Foltynewicz was lifted after five innings with an injury, which gave the Mets a chance. Todd Frazier walked with one out in the...

A.J. Ramos to get second opinion on injured shoulder

Ramos is deciding between surgery and a ‘more conservative’ route The Mets placed AJ Ramos on the disabled list on May 28 with rotator cuff tendinitis. This afternoon, Sandy Alderson told reporters that he was seeking a second opinion about the injury. Ramos is deciding between surgery and a ‘more conservative route’ with his shoulder. Ramos was acquired mid-season last year from the Miami Marlins. In 21 games for the Mets in 2017, Ramos put up a 90 ERA+, saving seven games, striking out 25, and walking 12 in his 19 innings of service. This season, Ramos has been shakier; in 19.2...

Seth Lugo, Mets bullpen shut Yankees out to snap long losing streak

The Mets finally won a game. All it took for the Mets to win for the first time in nine games was a shutout. Seth Lugo, who got the start after Noah Syndergaard experienced a setback with a finger injury, was brilliant, and Robert Gsellman and Anthony Swarzak backed him up to combine for a shutout against the vaunted Yankees lineup. It’s a good thing those pitchers pitched the way they did, too. A Mets lineup that has produced next to nothing over the team’s past few weeks—especially during the eight-game losing streak the team endured—did just about the bare minimum....
