Keeping track of recent minor transactions within the Mets system
New York Mets 14-7
4/26 – Travis d’Arnaud was placed on the 15-day DL with a right rotator cuff strain. The Mets selected the contract of Rene Rivera from Las Vegas and moved Zack Wheeler to the 60-day DL to make room for Rivera on the 40-man roster.
Las Vegas 51s 10-10
4/30 – Seth Lugo was activated from the DL for his start. The 51s needed to make a roster move when he went on the DL, but word is he had a sore forearm, which is concerning. If there is a corresponding move, I will have it updated in this post by morning, but the last roster update only had 24 active players
Binghamton Mets 10-9
4/24 – Stefan Sabol was placed on the 7-day DL with a foot injury, and Raywilly Gomez was activated for the roster.
It has been announced that Jeff McNeil has a sports hernia and will be out for an undetermined amount of time
St. Lucie Mets 13-9
4/24 – Ben Griset was activated off the temporarily inactive list, and Paul Paez was assigned to the Cycloes roster to make room for him.
4/26 – Lednier Ricardo was transferred to the Cyclones roster, and Brandon Brosher was added to be the backup catcher for now.
4/27 – Patrick Biondi was transferred to the Cyclones roster after leaving Tuesday’s game early when he slid headfirst into 2B and came up with what looked like a hurt hand (per the radio). Raphael Ramirez was activated in his place for now.
ICYMI, from last week, I’ve been told that Mike Gibbons is in Spring Training recovering from an elbow strain suffered during Spring Training.
Columbia Fireflies 13-9
4/26 – Jose Garcia was activated off the 7-day DL and Natanael Ramos was placed back on it. The Mets have several young catching options for Columbia, so I think they are using the DL as a way to rotate between them from week-to-week.
4/27 – Adrian Abreu, another catcher, became active because his 80-game suspension for PED use ended. He was transferred to the 7-day DL.
4/29 – Tucker Tharp was placed on the DL after taking a pitch to the ear flap/face region Thursday night. Enmanuel Zabala was transferred to the Fireflies roster to take his spot.
Update: The Kevin Kaczmarski injury was revealed to be to his quad, although Adam Rubin did not specify which leg or the severity.
