8 Comments

Mets manager Mickey Callaway’s job was believed to be on the line during this past weekend’s three-game series against the Marlins. The now 20-25 Mets were swept by the now 13-31 Marlins.

The Mets’ front office, including GM Brodie Van Wagenen, called a meeting today to inform his players and coaches that he still supports Callaway as manager, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. According to Thosar, Callaway has the Mets’ support for “the time being and for many weeks to come.”

That wasn’t the only news revealed at the press conference. We’ll have a post on that coming up shortly.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
