Jeremy Hefner expected back this season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2013) Mets starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner had a follow-up examination Wednesday and has been prescribed rest and rehab as part of his recovery from a partially torn UCL in his pitching elbow.

Mets manager Terry Collins told MLB.com he has known about the condition for nearly two months, and the injury is considered so minor, the team expects him to pitch again this season.

"Everything I've heard, there's a good possibility he'll be back," Collins said. "I think it's just some rest and some strengthening stuff, and he should be able to come back."

Hefner posted a 9.13 ERA in five starts since the All-Star break, which has prompted the decision to place him on the disabled list.

"This certainly had a lot to do with it, I don't think there's any question about that," Collins said. "I know he could pitch with it -- that's why he did. We just saw such a big difference that there had to be something, which we tried to address."


Mets place Jeremy Hefner on disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2013) The Mets announced Wednesday that pitcher Jeremy Hefner has been placed on the disabled list with a partially torn UCL in his right elbow. The injury is chronic and will not require surgery, ESPN reports.

Hefner was optioned to the minors earlier this week, though the possibility remained that he would be placed on the disabled list after he was examined by doctors. His option was formally rescinded with the move to the disabled list. He is 4-8 with a 4.34 ERA and 99:37 K:BB ratio in 130 2/3 innings.

(8/13/2013) Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner will be evaluated Wednesday, according to MLB.com.

Mets demote Jeremy Hefner


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2013) The Mets optioned starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear a roster spot Sunday for Jonathon Niese, who was activated to start against the Diamondbacks. Hefner is scheduled to undergo medical exams, so he could land on the disabled list, if an injury is discovered.

The Mets will go to a five-man rotation with Hefner's demotion, but the right-hander could be back later in the year to make spot starts, if healthy.

Hefner has struggled in the second half, going 0-2 with a 9.13 ERA in five starts since the All-Star break. Hefner said he has been dealing with an elbow issue, which he said has been bothering him all season and it was manageable up until recently. Hefner believes the injury might stem from when he was hit by a Carlos Beltran line drive in spring training.


Jeremy Hefner knocked around in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2013) Mets starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner endured a rough outing but escaped with a no-decision Friday night against the Diamondbacks at Chase Field. The right-hander yielded four runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out one over five innings pitched.

Hefner has allowed three earned runs or more in each of his last four starts. He is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. He is 3-3 with a 4.16 ERA in 13 starts (12 starts) away from Citi Field.

Mets going back to five-man rotation for now


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2013) Mets manager Terry Collins announced Saturday the Mets are reverting to a five-man rotation until Jonathon Niese (shoulder) returns from the disabled list. Collins made the decision to move pitcher Carlos Torres back to the bullpen after Torres tossed two scoreless innings and picked up the win Friday. 

The Mets will return to a six-man rotation once Niese is healthy, but for the time being the rotation will consist of Matt Harvey, Dillon Gee, Jeremy Hefner, Zack Wheeler and Jenrry Mejia. After Wheeler pitches Sunday against the Royals, the Mets will use Mejia, Harvey and Gee during a three-game series against the Rockies before Hefner opens a series at Arizona Friday.


Jeremy Hefner quality in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2013) Mets starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner ended a string of poor outings with a quality start Saturday, but he had to settle for a no-decision in a 4-3 loss to the Royals in extra innings.  

Hefner exited the game in line for a loss, despite limited the Royals to three runs in six innings, though the Mets would battle back late to get him off the hook. He surrendered eight hits and walked none, while striking out six batters and throwing 78 of 110 pitches for strikes.

Hefner is now winless in five straight starts, while watching his ERA rise from 3.33 on July 12 to 4.23 now. He is 4-8 on the season, heading into his next scheduled start, Friday against the Diamondbacks. 


Mets push up Jeremy Hefner and Zack Wheeler


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2013) With Carlos Torres pressed into relief duty Friday in an extra-inning win over the Royals, the Mets will push the remainder of their rotation up a day for the rest of the series.

That means Jeremy Hefner will pitch Saturday and Zack Wheeler will follow Sunday, according to ESPN. Both pitchers will be throwing on regular rest, as the Mets have been using a six-man rotation. Monday is a team off day, so Wheeler moves up from his scheduled start Tuesday. 


Jeremy Hefner bandwagon getting a little light


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2013) As a Jeremy Hefner owner, I want to believe the Mets' starting pitcher is going to figure out his second-half woes and go back to the pitcher who averaged 22.8 points (standard) from Fantasy Weeks 8-18. However, I'm close to following the trend of most Fantasy owners, who have made Hefner one of the most-dropped players this week.

Right now, Hefer is battling the mental game. The time off during the All-Star break messed with his mechanics and now he's trying to correct his delivery. While it looked like Hefner might finally be ready to turn the corner after throwing three hitless innings Monday against the Marlins, he quickly fell apart and finished with a season-high five walks.

I will watch closely what Hefner does this weekend against the Royals, but one more bad start and it might be time to jump off the bandwagon.


Jeremy Hefner struggling to find 'release point'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2013) Mets starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner was off to a promising start Monday against the Marlins, tossing three hitless innings, before quickly unraveling. Hefner was done after 5 1/3 innings, allowing five runs (three earned).

"What I did like was I battled, my velocity came back a little bit," Hefner said, per the New York Post. "I threw some OK pitches. It was a grind, and you might have games like that. They are much easier to take, though, after a win."

Mets manager Terry Collins was particularly alarmed by the season-high five walks Hefner issued. Hefner took a no-decision Monday, but he is 0-2 with a 12.34 ERA in three starts since the All-Star break.

"Jeremy Hefner was pitching brilliantly when the All-Star Game hit and messed up his routine," Collins said. "Now he’s having a tough time finding that release point again. He’s got to get it, because we know he can deliver quality innings to us."


Jeremy Hefner leaves with deficit


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2013) Mets starter Jeremy Hefner was lucky to settle for a no-decision Monday in Miami. Hefner needed 111 pitches to last just 5 1/3 innings and left with a deficit.

The Miami bullpen blew things for starter Jacob Turner and Hefner didn't factor in. He gave up five runs -- three earned -- on four hits and five free passes over his 5 1/3. He struck out four batters and his ERA is now at 4.21.

Hefner has now given up 19 runs -- 16 earned -- over his last three starts spanning just 11 2/3 innings with two losses in those starts. The 27-year-old is not going very well. The Mets will next hand the ball to Hefner to start on Sunday against the Kansas City Royals.
