Jose Reyes:


Manager Jerry Manuel has informed Jose Reyes that he intends to bat the shortstop third this weekend against the Atlanta Braves in an attempt to jumpstart the team's dormant offense. "I said, 'Whatever is best for the team, I'm going to do it,'" Reyes told ESPNNewYork.com. "I don't have any problem." Even with Thursday's 5-2 win against the Chicago Cubs, the Mets have been anemic at the plate this season. - link





Eddie Kunz:

Stock Down: Eddie Kunz isn’t the only Mets starter looking shakey this season, but he might be the first one to step down from the first inning. He gave up five earned runs in four innings pitched Thursday night and hasn’t had a decent start for the entire young season. Kunz’s ERA is now 10.22.


Look for Josh Stinson to return to the rotation soon.


Speaking of erratic pitching, Scott Moviel had a no-hitter going after two innings for St. Lucie, but gave up two runs on walking the side and then hitting two base hitters. It’s that kind of season so far for Mets starters at A+… Familia: 9.95, Carson: 9.00, Shaw: 9.49,

Jake Eliopoulos:

Canadian lefthander Jake Eliopoulos has left the Chipola (Fla.) JC baseball team. Indians coach Jeff Johnson confirmed that Eliopoulos, a freshman who was the Blue Jays' unsigned second-round pick a year ago, will not pitch for the team the rest of the season. Nothing clicked for Eliopoulos at Chipola, on or off the field. He went just 1-2, 8.44, though he did have 24 strikeouts in 21 innings. Sources told BA that Eliopoulos has returned to Chipola to complete the academic year, then expected to return to Ontario to play in Canada's Inter-County League, a senior semi-pro league where he's played in the past. - link

John Lujan:

Press Release: The Buffalo Bisons today announced that RHP JOHN LUJAN has been promoted to the team from Double-A Binghamton. Lujan has joined the team in Rochester and is available for the Herd’s 1:05 p.m. game against the Red Wings at Frontier Field. Lujan, 25, began the 2010 season with the Binghamton Mets and was 0-0 with a 2.89ERA and two saves in six relief appearances. The righty struck out 11 and allowed just eight hits in 9.1 innings of work. He has not allowed a run over his last four outings. Lujan was a Rule V Draft pick from the Chicago White Sox in 2009. He entered the 2010 season a career 15-21 with a 3.75ERA in 219 appearances and seven starts in his minor league career.

Keith on Next Manager:

Bob Melvin, Major League Scout. His managerial track record is pretty good. Ironically, the man for whom he took over in Arizona after the briefest off-season tenure in managerial history, Wally Backman, is the top minor league possibility. - link
