Mets Clean Up Arbitration Slate

by @ 4:50 pm. Filed under 2012 Mets

The Mets had four arbitration eligible players left and all four were inked to contracts by the deadline.  Mike Pelfrey, Andres Torres, Ramon Ramirez and Manny Acosta all signed one year deals for 2012.

Pelfrey signed a $5.68 million deal after just a 7-13 season.  Outfielder Torres will make $2.7 million while Ramirez will make $2.67 million.  Finally, Acosta will make $875,000.  The Mets have been pretty quiet in the offseason and they’re getting their payroll down.  Not a surprise with all of the financial problems that the Met’s owners have had.

Mets Sign Ronny Cedeno to One Year Deal

by @ 5:04 pm. Filed under Uncategorized

The Mets continue their bargain hunting as they signed Ronny Cedeno to a one year deal at right around $1 million.  The infielder has a pretty hollow bat (.339 slugging), but he’ll most likely be the Mets back up shortstop at least to start the season.  They have Ruben Tejada penciled in as the starter for now and Cedeno will give the team both some insurance and if needed, a defensive replacement because Cedeno is a solid fielder.

Cedeno did have a solid 2010 season with eight home runs but he came back down to earth in 2011.  You can’t expect too much from a guy with a 68 career OPS+ though.

Mets Top Eleven Prospects

by @ 9:51 am. Filed under 2012 Mets

Kevin Goldstein published his list of the Mets top eleven prospects and you have to be happy about the five and four star guys.  Topping the list is Matt Harvey, the Mets top pick in 2010.  He was great at High-A before struggling a bit at Double-A but he has a good chance of being a front of the rotation starter.  I also like the fact that we should see him in a Mets uniform this year.

Number two and the other five star guy is Zack Wheeler.  The Mets top pick in 2009, Wheeler dominated at High-A and he’ll get to test his mettle at Double-A this year.  This was the cornerstone of the trade for Carlos Beltran and you hope this guy pans out in a big way.

Number three and the lone four star guy is Jeurys Familia.  The right hander split time at High-A and Double-A and he got it done at both levels.  This is another guy we could see with the Mets in 2012.  Brandon Nimmo (OF) and Juan Lagares (OF) round out the top ten.
