Asdrubal Cabrera Asks To Be Traded

Jun 24, 2017 1:52 AM

Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera said Friday that he has requested a trade from the Mets, a decision he made after the team asked him to move to second base.

Cabrera, 31, was activated from the 10-day disabled list Friday and went 3-for-6 in an 11-4 win over the Giants. He hit second in the lineup and made his first start at second base since Sept. 28, 2014.

"Personally, I'm not really happy with that move," Cabrera told reporters after meeting with manager Terry Collins and general manager Sandy Alderson before Friday's game, according to MLB.com.

Sore Heel Forces Yoenis Cespedes To Leave Game

Jun 13, 2017 8:58 AM

Yoenis Cespedes, who just returned this past weekend from a hamstring injury, left Monday night's game against the Chicago Cubs with a sore left heel.

Cespedes was visited in the field in the fifth inning by Terry Collins and trainer Ray Ramirez.

He stayed in the game to take his turn at bat in the bottom of the inning, but he didn't return to the field in the sixth for the New York Mets.

Cespedes said after the game the heel has bothered him for years, and that he expected to play Tuesday night. "I'm just trying to be a little cautious,'' he said through a translator.

Mr. Met Fired After Making Obscene Gesture At Fans

Jun 1, 2017 7:51 AM

The New York Mets apologized Wednesday night after their mascot, Mr. Met, made an obscene gesture toward fans at Citi Field.

Video posted on social media showed Mr. Met walking down a tunnel at the ballpark, turning around and giving the middle finger to the fans.

"We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee," the Mets said in a statement posted on Twitter. "We do not condone this type of behavior. We are dealing with this matter internally."

A Mets official said more than one person wears the Mr. Met costume during each season, and the person who wore it Wednesday night will not work in the costume again.

Terry Collins: Mets Will Avoid Publicly Predicting Injury Return Dates

May 26, 2017 11:04 AM

Terry Collins is attempting to clarify comments he had made Wednesday about his role in relaying injury news to reporters.

Collins had said Wednesday he was "not at liberty" to discuss Jay Bruce's injury situation.

The New York Mets manager said Thursday the team is going to try to avoid predicting publicly when players will return from injuries because "no one really knows when anybody's going to be ready" while they're recovering and rehabbing.

"I get in trouble because I try to be as honest as I can with you guys and give you an honest look at things," Collins said. "And then if it doesn't happen, we look like an idiot when we're not, because there's no guarantees."

Mets Considered Walking Mike Trout With Bases Loaded

May 22, 2017 7:59 AM

The New York Mets considered walking Mike Trout with the bases loaded in the ninth inning of Saturday's game.

The Mets entered the ninth with a five-run lead, but the Los Angeles Angels scored two runs and faced a 7-4 deficit with Trout coming to the plate with no outs and the bases loaded."The first thought is, I'd almost try to walk this guy [rather] than pitch to him," Terry Collins said.

Collins opted instead to let Addison Reed pitch to Trout, who lofted a sacrifice fly. The Mets held on for a 7-5 victory.

Back in 1998, Buck Showalter, then with the Arizona Diamondbacks, famously ordered an intentional walk of Barry Bonds with the bases loaded and Arizona clinging to a two-run lead.

"Those are the kind of situations where you look back at the time when Buck Showalter walked Bonds with the bases loaded rather than pitch to him," Collins said. "It was the same feeling -- 'I might want to walk, pitch around this guy, [rather] than give him a chance to hit.' But fortunately [Reed] made some good pitches."
