Taking Mets scheduled days off after games in Miami, limiting it to '16-'17 because Harvey wasn't bad until then, and Collins was fired, eliminating 2nd half of 2016 because he was on DL, and eliminating April of 2017 because he was off to a good start, I've got it at 9-22-17. (Harvey's start in the Miami series was 4 IP, 12 H, 7 R, 2/2.)

Vet Mets still around then:

Jose Reyes
Asdrubal Cabrera
Nori Aoki(joined the team in September)
Jerry Blevins

I guess it could be somebody like DeGrom, but that doesn't seem to be what the quote is getting at. I guess Reyes or Blevins?

Was David weight traveling with the team at that point?

Adam Wainwright is likely heading back to the disabled list after leaving Sunday's start in the third inning due to renewed pain in his elbow.

His return from the disabled list on Sunday was disastrous, allowing two runs on three hits while issuing six free passes in just 2 1/3 innings. Wainwright admitted afterwards that he didn't have a good feel for his pitches and his velocity was noticeably down. What little fantasy value that he had remaining is quickly disappearing.

Lol Wainwright had fantasy value is the best part of this rotowire update. It's an upgrade for them if he's out.

I just looked through on Gameday, and Clayton Kershaw only touched 90 MPH once during his start tonight. And that pitch was exactly 90.0. He'll get some velo back as he gets further away from his DL stint, but he's probably more All-Star than Cy Young going forward.

Indeed. Pitching prospects will break your heart. I'm still not over Mark Prior breaking down. He should've won multiple Cy Youngs...

He threw 1142 4-seamers last year and not a single one was less than 90 mph.

No way he's opting out of 3/$98M at the end of the year, right? I mean, I suppose if he misses a month or less, comes back by July 1 and goes vintage Kershaw the rest of the way he probably opts out. But for him to opt out, he'd have to be pretty confident he's getting way more than $98M guaranteed. I suppose there's always some team crazy enough to offer him 5/$130M or 6/$150.

EDIT: Looked at it wrong. He’s only got two years left for $65M. So more likely to opt out since he’d only need to be confident of getting around $100M.

Like I’ve said before, his back is horsefeathers which may have led to these arm injuries and now the back thing came back. He absolutely should be opting in at this point.

I'm guessing 2020 relevancy to the ML team as opposed to minor leagues, where he'll presumably rehab at the end of '19.
