    Kirk Nieuwenhuis

    With Andres Torres headed to the disabled list because of a strained left calf, the Mets are planning to promote Kirk Nieuwenhuis from Triple-A prior to Saturday’s game. Nieuwenhuis is recovering from an injury himself, having been down for most of the spring with a strained oblique. That prevented him from getting much play as…

    Jason Bay

    With Andres Torres (calf) joining Scott Hairston (oblique) on the sidelines, Jason Bay volunteered to take over in center field for the Mets. Torres is still hopeful of being ready for Opening Day, but Hairston is probably DL bound. The Mets’ third-best option in center field, prospect Kirk Nieuwenhuis, is also nursing an oblique strain.…

  3. Mets lose lefty reliever Tim Byrdak to knee surgery

    Tim Byrdak

    UPDATE: General manager Sandy Alderson expects Byrdak to be ready for game action in about six weeks, which could mean a late-April debut. ========== Scott Hairston‘s oblique injury means the Mets may look to a converted left-handed pitcher to serve as their backup center fielder and now Tim Byrdak‘s knee injury means they’re in need…

    Scott Hairston‘s oblique strain leaves the Mets in need of a backup center fielder behind starter Andres Torres and converted pitcher Adam Loewen has a legitimate chance to claim the gig. Loewen was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2002 draft and started 29 games in the majors for the Orioles by age 24,…

    Scott Hairston aggravating his troublesome left oblique Saturday during an instrasquad game has created some apprehension in Mets camp. So the team is scaling back workloads for some of its stars, including third baseman David Wright. According to beat writer Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, Wright has been scratched from Monday’s Grapefruit League opener…

    Scott Hairston

    Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that Scott Hairston was pulled from an intrasquad game today due to a strained left oblique. This is the very same injury which ended his season last August. “Same as last year, pretty much,” Hairston said about the current issue. “I felt it on the swing out there. I felt…

  7. Running down the rosters: New York Mets

    Feb 22, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    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…

    Fernando Martinez

    In need of 40-man roster spots after signing Ronny Cedeno and Scott Hairston the Mets have placed former top prospect Fernando Martinez on waivers, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. In his early days as a prospect Martinez was rumored to be the centerpiece of nearly every potential Mets trade and Baseball America…

    Scott Hairston

    Joel Sherman of the New York Post just tweeted that Scott Hairston is going up to New York for a physical and thus it appears as though he’s re-signing with the Mets. UPDATE: ┬áit’s confirmed. Hairston’s role with the Mets was pretty limited last year, both by injury and by Terry Collins’ seeming reluctance to…

  12. Padres non-tender Tony Gwynn Jr. and Scott Hairston

    As expected, the Padres have decided to non-tender both Tony Gwynn Jr. and Scott Hairston. San Diego locked up its fourth outfielder for 2011 by signing Chris Denorfia to a one-year, $800,000 deal, making Gwynn and Hairston somewhat superfluous. In addition to his fantastic, beloved-in-San Diego bloodlines Gwynn has proven to be an elite defensive…

    With tomorrow night’s deadline for teams to tender 2011 contracts to arbitration-eligible players looming, Chris Denorfia and the Padres have avoided the process by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $800,000. Signed last December after being let go by the A’s following a miserable Triple-A performance, Denorfia earned a mid-May call-up to San Diego and…
