Mets To Acquire Elieser Hernandez, Jeff Brigham From Marlins

The Mets are set to acquire right-handers Elieser Hernandez and Jeff Brigham from the Marlins, reports Mike Puma of the New York Post. Minor league righty Franklin Sanchez is headed back to Miami in return. Both Hernandez and Brigham were designated for assignment by the Marlins earlier this week.

The acquisitions of Hernandez and Brigham will give the Mets some needed depth in both the rotation and the bullpen, where they’re currently faced with the prospect of losing significant chunks of their staff. Starters Jacob deGrom, Chris Bassitt and Taijuan Walker are all free agents, and while the Mets already re-signed Edwin Diaz, they’ve also seen Seth Lugo, Adam Ottavino, Mychal Givens, Trevor May and Trevor Williams reach the open market.

The Athletic: MLB investigating whether Mets, Yankees communicated improperly about Aaron Judge: Sources [$]

Major League Baseball is investigating whether comments attributed to Mets sources about the team’s reluctance to pursue free-agent outfielder Aaron Judge constitute a violation of baseball’s collective bargaining agreement.

An article published on the Mets’ television network’s web site Nov. 3 said the Mets would not bid against the Yankees for Judge. Details in the story caught the attention of the Players Association, which asked the Commissioner’s Office to investigate whether improper communication occurred between the respective owners of the clubs, according to sources briefed on the situation….

Recent CBAs specifically prohibit the sharing of information on player contracts, saying, “Players shall not act in concert with other Players and Clubs shall not act in concert with other Clubs.” The league in its investigation is expected to request that Mets owner Steve Cohen and Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner provide records of any phone, text and email conversations that took place between them during the period in question.

What’s next for Mets after wisely signing Edwin Diaz to massive deal?

I want this writer in my fantasy league!!!

Most are praising the Mets’ front office and owner Steve Cohen for their quick, decisive move on Diaz, and I’m part of that chorus.

Yes, there’s a risk when it comes to giving a shade over $20 million annually to a reliever for five years.

But the Mets didn’t give that deal to someone who appears to be in danger of a regression. They gave it to a 28-year-old (Diaz will turn 29 in March) who is at the height of his powers and is coming off one of the most dominant seasons any reliever has ever had.

And Diaz’s dominance in 2022 (and, really, since 2020) is backed up as real by the “regular” stats and pretty much any advanced stat you can find. He is for real.

Law: The Mets fail to learn from history. Will the Edwin Díaz deal doom them to repeat it? - The Athletic

This century, there have been, by my count, 20 contracts of four or five years handed to free-agent relievers, not counting the new deal for Díaz. Jansen, Chapman and B.J. Ryan received five-year deals, and the remainder were all for four years. One of the deals, Raisel Iglesias’, is still underway with 1.6 WAR in year one — although most of that came after the team that signed him, the Angels, dumped him and the contract on Atlanta midway through year one. Jansen’s and Chapman’s immediately followed the ends of those five-year periods I mentioned above.

Of the other 19, nine of them resulted in 4 WAR or less from the pitcher over the course of the deal, regardless of teams. That includes Brett Cecil (minus-0.5), Justin Speier (0.8), Drew Pomeranz (1.8, and out for all of year three due to injury), and Scott Linebrink (1.8). Only three of the deals resulted in an average WAR of at least 2: the Kimbrel deal originally signed with the Padres, the Miller deal with the Yankees and Mariano Rivera’s contract from 2001 to 2004. That Rivera deal is the only four- or five-year contract given to a reliever who produced at least 10 WAR over the course of the deal. One out of 19, and it belongs to the greatest short reliever the game has ever seen. Do you feel lucky? I sure don’t.

It may be time for Mets to move on from Jacob deGrom if price isn’t right

I polled three prominent agents (not his own) as to what he will command on the open market, and he will be free as he surely will make good on his twice-told promise to opt out since he’ll do much better than his current contract. I didn’t need to consult experts to know he can beat $30.5 million guaranteed, especially now that he finished the season lighting up radar guns and mostly looking like himself. “Simple Man,” is his song, but this is simple math. Anyway, I was curious so I asked around.

Here are the responses I got (with my reaction afterward).

Agent No. 1: three years, $125 million plus incentives. (Me: Thanks, but no thanks.)

Agent No. 2: three years, $140 million to $145 million. (Me: No way)

Agent No. 3: five years, $225 million. (Me: Good luck.)...

Word out of Mets camp is that club owner Steve Cohen and his baseball people will indeed try to re-sign deGrom but aim to do it within reason, which should be the case with 99 percent of desirable free agents anyway. The owner has not asked my opinion but here’s my own limit (aka my offer): Two years at $70 million total plus incentives based on innings pitched that could take him to $100 million.

“DeGrom would never accept two for 70,” a high-ranking Mets person told me.

Jobs of Mets manager Buck Showalter, GM Billy Eppler are safe after early playoff exit, per report

The New York Mets’ 2022 season ended in highly disappointing fashion on Sunday night as they were ousted in the Wild Card Series by the San Diego Padres. But according to what sources tell Mike Puma of the New York Post, the early playoff exit won’t result in the firings of manager Buck Showalter and general manager Billy Eppler:


The Mets won 101 games during the regular season—the first under the Showalter-Eppler tandem—and finished tied with the reigning-champion Atlanta Braves in the National League East standings. They achieved that lofty win total despite significant injuries to core stars Jacob deGrom, Max Scherzer, and Starling Marte.

As noted, though, the season ended in lacerating fashion for the Mets and their fans. First, they frittered away what in early June had been a 10 1/2-game lead in the NL East. They did so less because of their own collapse—Mets went 43-26 in the second half and 18-13 after the calendar flipped to September—and more because the Braves went on a 78-34 run of dominance that started around the time the Mets held that 10 1/2-game lead. Then came the loss to the Padres in opening-round, best-of-three Wild Card Series.

Mets have Joe Musgrove’s ears checked for illegal substance during Game 3 start

With the Mets’ bats quiet in a game that was slipping away, Buck Showalter tried a different method to help his offense get a grip.

Before Padres pitcher Joe Musgrove could throw his first pitch of the bottom of the sixth inning Sunday night, the Mets manager approached first-base umpire and crew chief Alfonso Marquez. Showalter requested a substance check on Musgrove, who had allowed just one hit in five innings of a game the Padres led by four runs.

The umpires checked Musgrove’s hat, glove and notably ears for a substance, and the right-hander apparently passed. He remained in the game and kept rolling as the Padres won, 6-0, to knock the Mets out of the postseason.

Pictures had circulated online of Musgrove’s ear appearing to have a shine, as if he could be using a sticky substance to help his grip and spin rate on the ball. It is also possible Musgrove was especially sweaty.

Mets to call up No. 1 prospect in baseball

Ahead of their pivotal series against the Braves, the Mets are expected to add a bat they hope will be a big part of their future. The club is set to call up baseball’s No. 1 overall prospect, Francisco Álvarez, a source told MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand. The team has not confirmed the move.

Álvarez was tearing it up at Double-A Binghamton with 18 homers in 67 games before getting the call to Triple-A, where he was starting to get comfortable before suffering a right ankle injury. But the Mets saw enough when he returned from the injury to give him a shot with a week to go in the season and in the middle of a pennant race with no margin for error.

The 20-year-old catcher could see time as the designated hitter, where the Mets have relied on Darin Ruf against left-handed pitching.

The difficult postseason decision Mets face

Assuming the Mets can line up their postseason rotation the way they desire, they’ll open the playoffs with Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer in some order, followed by Chris Bassitt. All three of those pitchers have earned the assignment on merit.

After that, the Mets face a difficult decision; it’s tough to draw a line between third and fourth starters Carlos Carrasco and Taijuan Walker. Both have been key contributors for the Mets but notably inconsistent. Overall, Carrasco is 15-6 with a 3.79 ERA while Walker is 12-4 with a 3.42 mark—numbers that hardly tell the story of their seasons.

The weightiest argument against Carrasco is that nearly all his success has come against bad teams. Consider:

Versus teams with at least a .500 record, Carrasco is 4-5 with a 6.84 ERA. Hitters from those clubs have a .300/.365/.486 slash line against him.
Versus sub-.500 teams, Carrasco is 11-2 with a 2.14 ERA. Hitters from those clubs have a .247/.295/.369 slash line against him.

Mets pull Max Scherzer after 6 perfect innings in his return from injured list

The New York Mets starter returned to the mound Monday after a brief stint on the injured list with an oblique injury. He proceeded to pitch six perfect innings against the Milwaukee Brewers in a tidy 68 pitches.

Alas, history was not in the cards for the three-time Cy Young winner. Manager Buck Showalter pulled him after the sixth, presumably not wanting to extend Scherzer fresh off a trip to the injured list. The Mets led 5-0 when Scherzer left the game.

Were it not for his recent injury, Scherzer’s night on an otherwise low pitch count looked like a prime candidate to secure the 24th perfect game in MLB history. Scherzer didn’t appear to be upset with the decision when his night was done.

The Mets are in a battle with the Atlanta Braves for the NL East title and have their sights set on a World Series championship. Keeping Scherzer and fellow Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom healthy is a big part of both goals. And at 38 years old, Scherzer certainly values prioritizing his health. But a missed opportunity at a perfect game surely stings nonetheless.

New York Mets have top payroll; record six teams set to pay luxury tax

The Mets are in line for a tax of $29.9 million, Midseason trades boosted their tax payroll from an opening-day projection of $289.3 million and past the new $290 million threshold in the March agreement that ended a 99-day lockout.

The Dodgers opened this season with a $310 million tax payroll, on track to pay a record penalty of $47 million. Their tax payroll dropped to $289.96 million by Aug. 31, leaving them just under the Cohen Tax. With higher tax rates as a repeat offender, the Dodgers are on track to pay $29.4 million.

The Yankees have a tax payroll of $267 million and a projected tax of $9.4 million, and the Phillies at $243 million would owe $2.6 million.

Boston, just over the first threshold at $234.5 million, would owe about $900,000. After paying tax for the first time last year, San Diego is a second offender with a payroll of about $233 million and a tax of just over $800,000.

This year’s four tax thresholds are $230 million, $250 million, $270 million and $290 million.

How MLB’s Most Confounding Team Is (Mostly) Overcoming Decades of Dysfunction

Standing at his locker at Nationals Park on the afternoon of the trade deadline, Lindor rolls his eyes remembering last season’s absurdities. “There were so many different things last year,” he says. “It wasn’t a professional organization, I felt like.”

Lindor played 2021 under the weight of a 10-year, $341 million contract signed before he stepped onto the field in Queens. He had spent his entire career to that point in Cleveland, and he says he struggled to adapt to the expectations of New York.

This year’s group is different, he says: “Guys go about their business the right way—you ain’t gotta worry about it—and then once they’re done, they turn the page. Professional. I like that.” He adds, “A lot of guys got arbitration for the first time, or second or third. They got a little more money. They realize it’s not just the money. It’s Gotta win. So it’s a big mix of a lot of things.”

“Accountability,” says center fielder Brandon Nimmo.

“Leadership,” says first baseman Pete Alonso.

“Winning,” says reliever Tommy Hunter.

Most people around the team trace the change to the same place. Righty Taijuan Walker sums it up as well as anyone: “It starts with Buck.”

John Stearns, ex-Mets All-Star catcher, dead at 71

Former Mets catcher John Stearns died at the age of 71 on Thursday.

A four-time All-Star, Stearns played 10 MLB seasons, coming to the Mets in a 1975 in a six-player trade that send Tug McGraw to the Phillies.

No cause of death was immediately available, though he was battling prostate cancer.

“If the word is out that I’ve got cancer, and that people are concerned about me passing away right away, it’s incredibly amazing that they would reach out to me,” Stearns told The Denver Post in July. “And it gives me the incentive to fight even harder.”

Despite his condition, Stearns made an appearance at the Mets Old Timers’ Day in May.

New York Mets president Sandy Alderson to step down, become special advisor

Sandy Alderson will step down as president of the New York Mets when the team finds his replacement.

The 74-year-old Alderson, a cancer survivor who has served two stints as New York’s general manager, will move to a new role as special advisor to owners Steve and Alex Cohen and the senior leadership team.

The first-place Mets announced the plans Thursday evening before hosting the Pittsburgh Pirates on Roberto Clemente Day in Major League Baseball.

“For me personally and for the organization, it’s the right time for this transition,’’ Alderson said in a statement. “We are having a successful season, we have made several key additions to our senior leadership team and we have built a strong and forward-thinking culture. When the time comes, I am looking forward to continuing to support Steve, Alex and the organization in a new role.’‘

Alderson was the Mets’ general manager from 2010 to 2018. He returned to the club as president when Cohen bought the team in November 2020 and assumed general manager responsibilities running baseball operations once again for a while before Billy Eppler was hired as GM last offseason.

Angel Hernandez’s ‘terrible’ Mets call sparks jabs from SNY booth: ‘Now we understand’

Angel Hernandez is at it again — and may have cost the Mets on the game’s first batter.

Brandon Nimmo led off the first inning with a hard-struck ball into the left-center field gap, and hustled for what he believed to be a triple for the Mets on Sunday against the Marlins in Miami. He was quickly asked to return to second base as Hernandez, the home plate umpire, called that the ball was lodged under the fence, thus resulting in a dead ball and a ground rule double.

Mets manager Buck Showalter argued and then challenged it as Marlins centerfielder JJ Bleday did not put his hands up to signal a dead ball. He instead picked it up and played it as it was. Also, it was questionable if the ball was stuck at all.

The call on the field was ultimately upheld as, according to the SNY broadcast, replay officials could not determine if the ball was lodged or not.

“I have never seen this call,” Keith Hernandez said on the broadcast.

“It’s the wrong call,” Ron Darling added. “It’s a terrible call.”

Mets top prospect Francisco Alvarez ankle injury 

On a prospect podcast (sorry, either Keith Law or MLB Pipeline) someone said that Alvarez’s defense was simply not ready for the majors BUT his bat was ready. This is despite his numbers in AAA. 

I guess we’ll have to wait until next year to see him on the Mets.

Francisco Álvarez, ranked by MLB Pipeline as the top prospect in baseball, is in jeopardy of missing significant time due to a right ankle injury, according to a source briefed on the situation. A second source acknowledged the injury but called the idea of Álvarez missing the rest of the season “premature.” He will undergo testing in New York in the coming days to determine next steps.

Sources: New York Mets to call up touted 3B prospect Brett Baty

The New York Mets are calling up third baseman Brett Baty, one of the top prospects in baseball, to help stem the tide of injuries to their infield in recent days, sources familiar with the move told ESPN.

Baty, 22, is expected to fly to Atlanta, where the Mets played the second game of a four-game series Tuesday night, losing 5-0. They placed infielder Luis Guillorme on the injured list Monday with a groin strain that will sideline him for more than a month, and Eduardo Escobar could join him on the injured list with a strained oblique.

Ranked the 37th-best prospect in baseball by ESPN’s Kiley McDaniel, Baty is a left-handed-hitting slugger who went 12th overall in the 2019 draft to the Mets. While some teams dinged Baty for being an older high school player, the Mets bought into the bat and have been rewarded mightily. Between Double-A and a week’s worth of games at Triple-A, Baty is hitting .315/.410/.533 with 19 home runs and 60 RBIs.

Jacob deGrom 6 scoreless innings 10 strikeouts in Mets win

Do they really want to push him before the playoffs?

Jacob deGrom doesn’t argue. He doesn’t attempt to negotiate. When pitching coach Jeremy Hefner delivers the news of how many pitches the Mets will allow deGrom to throw in a start, deGrom simply accepts it. He understands what it would look like if he successfully lobbied for more and then hurt himself again. So for now, deGrom keeps quiet.

On Saturday, that meant pitching only six innings in a 1-0 win over the Phillies at Citi Field, despite featuring near-unhittable stuff for the third time in three outings since returning from the injured list. It meant throwing only 76 pitches—the same amount he did six days earlier against the Braves—and then watching from afar as relievers Seth Lugo, Trevor May and (an uncharacteristically shaky version of) Edwin Díaz did the rest.

Mets officials insist there will come a day later this season when the limitations on deGrom disappear. deGrom himself believes it can happen within his next couple of starts.

This angle of Mets closer Edwin Díaz’s absolutely electric bullpen entrance is so darn awesome

I don’t know if you watch a lot of New York Mets games or have seen highlights of this before but the team’s closer, Edwin Díaz, has the coolest entrance in the history of baseball (sorry, Mariano Rivera) and this new angle of it from Sunday’s game is just the best thing I’ve seen in a while.

Diaz comes out to the song “Narco,” which will soon be the entrance song for a couple’s wedding after getting a ton of likes on social media. It’s an incredible song that I’m going to wake up to each morning from now until the rest of time.

The scene and the sounds when Diaz enters games at home to close them out is just pure theater. This angle from behind as he makes his way out onto the field is the best.

Mets add Ruf in multi-player swap with Giants

The Mets replaced one right-handed bench bat with another on Tuesday, acquiring veteran Darin Ruf from the Giants for J.D. Davis and prospects, sources tell MLB.com.

Neither club has confirmed the deal.

Ruf, 36, has a long history of mashing left-handed pitching, including an .887 OPS against southpaws this season. He is capable of playing first base and both corner outfield positions, though with the Mets, he’s likely to serve mostly as a DH compliment to newly acquired lefties Daniel Vogelbach and Tyler Naquin.

Davis, 29, filled the Mets’ righty bench bat role for the first four months of the season, but he slashed just .238/.324/.359 in 207 plate appearances.

In addition to Davis, left-handed pitching prospects Thomas Szapucki and Nick Zwack and righty pitching prospect Carson Seymour are also reportedly going to the Giants in the deal, per Joel Sherman. Zwack and Seymour were both 2021 Draft picks for the Mets.

New York Mets acquire Tyler Naquin, Phillip Diehl in trade with Cincinnati Reds

The first-place New York Mets acquired outfielder Tyler Naquin and left-handed reliever Phillip Diehl from the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday night in a trade for two minor leaguers.

Cincinnati received outfielder Hector Rodríguez and right-hander Jose Acuña.

Naquin, a first-round draft pick 10 years ago, was batting .246 with seven homers and 33 RBI in 56 games for the struggling Reds, who are last in the NL Central. He homered and drove in two runs Thursday in a 7-6 loss to Miami….

The Mets view the 31-year-old Naquin as a good all-around player who can start a couple of times a week against right-handed pitching, against whom he has solid career numbers (.280/.332/.473 with 50 homers). They had been interested in him since last month and talks intensified when the clubs began exchanging names a few days ago.
