Mets 2017 first round pick David Peterson pitched in extended spring training yesterday and is expected to join the Columbia Fireflies soon.

wonder if they are specifically trying to prep guys in minors now for the multi-inning Gsellman role.

Multi-inning use has been the norm for their minor league relievers even predating Mickey. For context last year Smith pitched more than one inning 4 of his 11 appearances post coming over, Uceta pitched more than 1 20 times last year, Bashlor 7 times

Real chance Rhame, Sewald, and Robles all have to go back to AAA soon. The Mets are about to have an embarrassment of riches as far as relievers stocked away in AA/AAA imo..

Is there a team that needs relief pitching and has excess catching in their farm system?

The Mets' need both a short term and long term solution behind the plate.

I think that D'Arnaud can not be counted on in the future.
kinda wanna see what we got with Nido here  
Rory : 4/12/2018 12:02 pm : link
and kinda not sure I want to trade a single reliever on this staff.

Also very excited to see Kevin Plawecki full time

If we need a upgrade its pretty much writing on the wall for Lucroy at ASB.

agree across the board. It's also not Lucroy or bust. Probably several similar veterans out there on losing teams that will be available and at minimum better than TDA defensively and passable offensively.

From what I've seen of Nido down here in the minors, he is so streaky. He could put up a few oh-fers.....and then you can't get him out for a week !! I'd like to see him smooth out the peaks and valleys.

Catcher is the one position around baseball that there really isn't a team with an excess of prospects.
Dodgers

would be the one team that had legit C depth with Grandal, Barnes, Ruiz and Will Smith. Doubt the Dodgers are too eager to give up Barnes however and Ruiz/Smith wouldn't help the 2018 Mets.

Dan, in the thread for yesterday's game I had suggested speaking with Rockies about Tom Murphy since they have Ianetta/Wolters blocking him in the majors

The Mets actually supposedly were very high on Murphy during his draft year so that's not a bad idea at all. He's a "local" guy too.

Grandal is tearing the cover off the ball and hitting for avg now. He's been one of their best hitters, Barnes has become an afterthought. Their pen is hurting too
is Travis d'Arnaud

There is no "afterthought" when it comes to catchers. Grandal has topped 400 ab's once his career. % chance the Dodgers are giving up Barnes for one of the Mets relievers. It's not as if the Mets have proven arms out there. Barnes 2.5 fWAR last year. That's a pipedream.

Almost certainly. If he has the surgery yes and if he doesn't teams will run at will.
The Braves have reached out to the Dodgers for Barnes  
Jay on the Island : 4/12/2018 2:48 pm : link
at least twice in the past and both times nothing happened due to the huge asking price. He is coming off his rookie season where he posted an .895 OPS so the asking price is even higher.

with a "hand issue"

might explain his "demotion", though I suspect the Mets could get in trouble if they were to be called on it.

Did not realize Barnes was that productive last year. Kinda just saw him as a prototypical backup type who could move to the infield at some point.

Russ Langer, Las Vegas 51s voice, says Brandon Nimmo would've arrived to the 51s sooner but he stayed in New York to have an "issue" with his hand checked out.
Flexed pitching well today

Only run hes given up so far was on a routine fly ball to RF. With INF Ty smelly playing in RF. And a hurricane blowing out to RF. Wind took it and turned it into a AAA.
