    The Mets have reportedly discussed a trade for Rockies’ catcher Ramon Hernandez, but Peter Gammons of MLB Network hears that they are considering alternatives. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported last weekend that the Mets are also interested in Mariners’ catcher Miguel Olivo. If acquired, Shoppach would function as a platoon partner for…

    We made it, you guys. Another Home Run Derby is in the rear view mirror, as Prince Fielder defeated Jose Bautista in the finals tonight to take home this year’s crown. It was Fielder’s second Home Run Derby win, the other coming back in 2009 in St. Louis. Ken Griffey, Jr., who won in 1994, 1998 and…

    Josh Thole is back from the disabled list, returning to the Mets after missing the past 22 games with a concussion from a home plate collision on May 7. To make room for Thole on the roster the Mets demoted Rob Johnson to Triple-A, choosing to stick with Mike Nickeas as their backup despite his…

    It’s safe to say that Johan Santana is back. In an effort which was both dominant and efficient, Santana tossed a four hit-shutout this afternoon at Citi Field as part of a 9-0 victory over the light-hitting Padres. All four hits he gave up were singles and he threw 74 out of 96 pitches for…

    Josh Thole could be headed for the seven-day disabled list for concussions after taking a shoulder to the head on a slide from Ty Wigginton during tonight’s game against the Phillies. The injury occurred when Freddy Galvis hit a tapper to Bobby Parnell with runners on second and third in the bottom of the eighth…

  7. The Mets haven’t ruled out signing Ivan Rodriguez…or have they?

    Ivan Rodriguez

    UPDATE: Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com was told by multiple Mets’ sources that a deal with Rodriguez is unlikely. In fact, one source told him: “We are not bringing Ivan here.” The club appears content to go with Mike Nickeas or Rob Johnson as Josh Thole‘s backup. 6:48 PM: 40-year-old Ivan Rodriguez is still out there…

  8. Running down the rosters: New York Mets

    Jason Bay, David Wright

    As depressing as all things Mets have been lately, the team on the field still finished a respectable 77-85 last season. Unfortunately, it seems likely that things will get worse before they get better. Rotation Johan Santana – L R.A. Dickey – R Mike Pelfrey – R Jon Niese – L Dillon Gee – R…

    Some people might say this is a slow news day, but I beg to differ because the Mets have signed catcher Rob Johnson to a minor-league contract. Johnson figures to compete with Mike Nickeas for the job backing up starter Josh Thole. Johnson spent the first seven years of his pro career with the Mariners…

    Here’s the official list of players non-tendered prior to the Monday midnight deadline: American League Baltimore: OF/DH Luke Scott, LHP Jo-Jo Reyes, RHP Willie Eyre Scott went from hitting .284/.368/.535 during an excellent 2010 season to .220/.301/.402 in 209 at-bats during a 2011 season shortened by shoulder surgery.
