Yankees Prospect Out of Hospital After Wall Crash

Yankees Prospect Out of Hospital After Wall Crash

NY Yankees/MLB(PORT ST. LUCIE, Fl.) -- New York Yankees prospect Jose Pirela was released from the hospital Sunday after crashing into the outfield wall in a game against the New York Mets.

Pirela sustained a concussion after slamming into the wall head-first while chasing a fly ball off the bat of Mets' Juan Lagares in the first inning. Pirela attempted to stand up but collapsed back to the ground.

"Obviously you're concerned when a player doesn't get up," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "He's having some tests run right now. I'm not sure how long it's going to take for him to get back, but he did not look good."

Pirela was taken to the hospital after experiencing dizziness. He was tested with a CT Scan and an MRI; both tests came back negative and he was released.

Mets’ Zack Wheeler Will Undergo Tommy John Surgery

Mets’ Zack Wheeler Will Undergo Tommy John Surgery

Scott Cunningham/Getty Images(PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.) -- New York Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler will undergo Tommy John surgery and is expected to miss at least 14 months of baseball action.

Wheeler fully tore his ulnar collateral ligament during a spring training game last week. He is set to have surgery next week.

"Of course I'm nervous about it, but you've got to do it and have that mindset when you're coming back that you're going to be 100 percent and better than you were before," Wheeler said. "... I knew it probably eventually was going to happen. You aren't meant to throw overhand and throw hard."

Wheeler has been throwing hard his entire career and saw this injury coming.

"Honestly, I've had pain in that spot in my elbow since I got drafted -- since before I got drafted," Wheeler said. "It just happened to really flare up and be a little more painful last year, but not enough to where I was actually like, 'Oh my gosh.'"

Wheeler was 11-11 with a 3.54 ERA with 187 strike outs last year.

Mets Lose Wheeler to Tommy John Surgery

Mets Lose Wheeler to Tommy John Surgery

Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) -- For the second straight season, the New York Mets will be without one of their top pitchers.

Zach Wheeler has been diagnosed with a full tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, and will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair it.

Last season, the Mets were without ace Matt Harvey as he also recovered from Tommy John surgery. 

"Obviously we wish the best for him," Harvey said. "We're all going to be behind him. Obviously being pretty recently through that process, anything he needs, we're going to always be there and help him out. It's an unfortunate thing. He wants to be playing just as bad as the next guy. It's a tough day for all of us."

The team also lost left-handed reliever Josh Edgin to the same surgery on Sunday.

The Mets will lean on Dillon Gee, who started 22 games last season for New York, in place of the injured Wheeler.

Matt Harvey’s Flawless in First Start Since Tommy John Surgery

Matt Harvey’s Flawless in First Start Since Tommy John Surgery

Norm Hall/Getty Images(PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.) -- New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey was dominant in his first start on Friday at spring training against the Tigers.

Harvey threw 25 pitches and struck out three in two scoreless innings of work.

"The big thing is I was happy throwing strikes and not walking anybody. Those are the things you try to work on," Harvey said. "Especially hearing things about guys going through this process and having tough command, for me, that was the big thing that I was focusing on today. And I was pretty happy about it."

Harvey understands that the challenge is building up his arm for six to seven innings of work by the end of spring training, but joked about pitching another frame on Friday.

"I was joking with [Mets manager Terry Collins] a little bit because I know at some point we're probably going to have some innings limits," Harvey said. "I asked him if I could go out for a couple of more innings, and that was laughed about. Obviously, we both know that's going to happen at some point. So giving him a little chuckle about wanting to go back out was my way of saying I understand the process and I know how things are going to go."

The Mets Won’t Push Back Matt Harvey’s Season Debut

The Mets Won’t Push Back Matt Harvey’s Season Debut

Norm Hall/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Back in December, Mets manager Terry Collins said ace starting pitcher Matt Harvey might not make his debut until the team's home opener on April 13th, but it looks as if plans may change.

According to ESPN New York's Adam Rubin, Collins said that the current plan for Harvey is to start one of the team's first five games.  Harvey was expected to be on an innings limit this season after undergoing Tommy John Surgery last year, however, Collins says they are more inclined to give him five-inning starts instead of skipping his turn in the rotation.

Harvey will look to regain 2013 form in 2015, where he went 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA, striking out 191 batters in 178.1 innings pitched.

Mets’ Matt Harvey Ready to Pick up Where He Left Off in 2013

Mets’ Matt Harvey Ready to Pick up Where He Left Off in 2013

Norm Hall/Getty Images(PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.) -- It may be cold in New York, but the sight of starting pitcher Matt Harvey reporting for spring training has likely warmed the hearts of New York Mets fans.

After taking the baseball world by storm in 2013, Harvey needed to undergo Tommy John Surgery, and missed the entire 2014 season. After a full offseason of working out and getting into shape, Harvey is ready to go.

"Just the way the ball's coming out, I'm pretty on point with my accuracy right now, which is surprising," he said. "Obviously hearing from guys [who came back from Tommy John surgery], that was kind of the last thing that sometimes comes. I couldn't be happier with the way things feel."

In 2013, Harvey went 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA with 191 strikeouts in 178.1 innings pitched while making 26 starts.

According to Harvey, he'll be ready to go for the team's first game against the Washington Nationals on April 6, but will likely make his first start on April 13 for the team's home opener against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Starting Pitcher Johan Santana Attempting Another Comeback

Starting Pitcher Johan Santana Attempting Another Comeback

Elliot J. Schecther/MLB Photos(NEW YORK) -- Former All-Star starting pitcher Johan Santana isn't ready to call it a career just yet as he will make yet another attempt to reach the Majors again.

While attempting a comeback last season with Baltimore Orioles, Santana tore his left Achilles tendon in June. He will participate in the Venezuelan Winter League.

"Johan wants to go out on his own terms," said Peter Greenberg, Santana's agent. "He doesn't want to go out because an injury put him out. He's worked very hard and kept himself in shape, and he's never thought about retiring.

"It's not about the money or anything like that. He's said he wants to draw his own ending. He wants to go out on his own terms. He's told me, 'I want to add to my legacy.' I think anybody who knows him is going to bet on him."

Santana was one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball 2003-2010 during his time with the Minnesota Twins and New York Mets.

During his 12-year career, the 35-year-old Santana went 139-78 with a 3.20 ERA. He also won two American League Cy Young Awards in 2004 and 2006.

Mets’ Matt Harvey Looking Forward to Spring Training

Mets’ Matt Harvey Looking Forward to Spring Training

Norm Hall/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is ready to get back to work after missing all of last season due to Tommy John surgery.

Harvey said he plans to report early to spring training in February.

"I'm healthy," Harvey said on Wednesday.  "It's nice to have a normal offseason and prepare like a normal offseason and get ready for spring training."

"It's been great," Harvey continued.  "I've been at it for over a month now.  We're getting excited.  I think spring training can't come quick enough for me."

Harvey is "completely on board" with his innings at Citi Field being limited in hopes that he can pitch late into October 2015.

"I just want to be healthy," Harvey said. "I think after missing a whole year, coming back and just being able to pitch every five days is something I'm looking forward to."

Harvey said he has faith that the pitching staff will be one of the best in the MLB next season.

"The staff is going to be very solid," Harvey said.  "I think the pieces that we've added; winning in New York and bringing a parade back to Queens would be exactly what we want to do."

Bobby Abreu Announces Retirement

Bobby Abreu Announces Retirement

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Before taking the field with the New York Mets, outfielder Bobby Abreu announced his retirement from Major League Baseball on Friday. 

"I have a lot of fun," Abreu said. "These young guys here are special. Even though I'm 40, they made me feel young. But I realize now that the game is for the next generation."

The 18-year veteran made his debut in 1996 for the Houston Astros, managed by Terry Collins. His career will come to an end on Sunday, with Collins as his new manager, against the Astros at Citi Field. Adding to the symmetry of his career, Abreu's first ever hit came against Bobby Jones of the Mets. 

Since then, the 40-year-old has tallied 2,469 total hits, ranking 10th all-time. Of all active players, only Derek Jeter has played more games than Abreu's 2,423 contests. Abreu was a two-time All-Star and the active leader in career walks (1,475) and doubles (574).

"For sure, Bobby Abreu will be able to walk off the field with his head held high Sunday," manager Terry Collins said.

Mets Place Second Baseman Daniel Murphy on the Disabled List

Mets Place Second Baseman Daniel Murphy on the Disabled List

Photos.com/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- One of the few offensive bright spots for the New York Mets is now on the shelf as the team has placed second baseman Daniel Murphy on the disabled list with a strained right calf.

Murphy's calf had been bothering him all week, which kept him out of action. The team decided it was best to put him on the shelf so he can get healthy.

"It's frustrating," he said. "It ended up being a little worse than I thought."

According to Murphy, doctors told him they would take a closer look at this MRI on Friday to help determine just how much time he will miss.

In 126 games this season, the 29-year-old is hitting .301 with nine home runs and 53 RBIs. He was the Mets lone All-Star this season.

Replacing Murphy on the Mets roster will be Dilson Herrera. Herrera was hitting .340 with 10 home runs for Double-A Binghamton this season.
