Mets Morning News: Lara promoted, Davis still slumping

New York Mets related news and links for May 24, 2013

Mike Stobe

A Sand Gnat player got promoted yesterday, and it wasn't the red-hot Kevin Plawecki. When Hansel Robles hit the DL, Rainy Lara was sent to Florida to take his spot on the roster.

The Post looked at what the Mets have for options to potentially replace Ike Davis at first base. It's a slow enough news day that I'm linking to The Post.

Up next for the Mets will be the division leading Braves, with game one featuring Jeremy Hefner and a hobbit.

Yesterday at AA

There wasn't a whole lot going on at AA yesterday either, but this date in Mets history took a look back at the debut of Mike Piazza.

Around Baseball

There were only five games on the major league schedule last night, and none of the five were in the NL East. There was only one game involving NL opponents, ad that one saw the Pirates beat the Cubs by a 4-2 score.

Terry Francona returned to Boston last night, and it went far better for his current team than his former one. The Indians ended up beating the Red Sox by a 12-3 score.

A few of the guys at Bullpen Banter had a discussion about who they would take with the top overall pick in the upcoming draft.

Speaking of the draft, Minor League Ball took a look at the top performing pitchers from the 2012 MlB draft.

It looks like the idea of forcing Jesus Montero to catch is going to be abandoned in Seattle. For whatever it's worth, Francisco Pena managed to stick behind the plate.

The Rangers released Derek Lowe yesterday. If Omar was still in charge he'd almost certainly have secured a 25-man roster spot with the Mets by now.
