More News and Notes

  • J Mejia has resumed throwing and threw 3 innings in Port St. Lucie on Wednesday, allowing one run on four hits and a walk while striking out three. Apparently he was throwing 96-98 mph, and is moving up to AA for his next start. 
  • Forgotten Sean Green will be resuming his rehab in Buffalo on Saturday he started his rehab on July 15th, so he has to be activated by August 15th. 
  • For those who are clamoring for more trade rumors, the asking price for LHP Scott Downs (Toronto) has been insane (Toronto asked for top Red Sox pitching prospect Casey Kelly, or Yankee phenom Jesus Montero), and the Mets thankfully turned down K Nieuwenhuis and another prospect for Downs according to Jon Heyman
    • Nieuwenhuishas the upside of a solid regular, with a good bat but questionable whether he can man center field defensively. He was very gracious with his time in spring training, and signed a lot of autographs for the fans, with very few knowing who he was. 
    • My Take: Good job Omar for declining this trade.
