Mets purchased the contract of RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Matsuzaka posted a 2.25 ERA with 12 strikeouts over his first 12 innings at Triple-A. He'll work in long relief for now but could eventually get a shot to start.

Mets sent LHP John Lannan outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Lannan's move to the bullpen didn't go well, as he posted a 15.75 ERA over five relief appearances. He has the option to elect free agency rather than accept the minor league assignment. The Mets will try Daisuke Matsuzaka as a long reliever instead.

Marlins prospect LHP Andrew Heaney was outstanding on Tuesday, allowing just a hit and walk while striking out five in six scoreless innings for Double-A Jacksonville.

After giving up three runs on 10 hits in his season debut, Heaney, 22, has been lights out in his last two starts, allowing five total hits in 12 shutout frames with a 13/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Given Heaney's success in Double-A dating back to last season, it might not be long until he receives a promotion to the major leagues.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday that he expects Curtis Granderson (ribs) back in the lineup on Saturday.

Granderson injured his ribs, forearm and knee when he collided with the wall during Monday's game. He's missing a second straight start Wednesday and evidently will sit out Friday, as well, following Thursday's off day. The offseason signee will return to a .170/.291/.319 batting line with one homer and four RBI on Saturday.
Apr 16 - 1:16 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday that Bartolo Colon (back) will be fine to make his start on Saturday.

Colon dealt with a back issue during his last outing, which had Saturday's start up in the air. Evidently, though, the rotund right-hander has progressed enough to where his availability for the start versus the Braves over the weekend isn't in question.
Apr 16 - 1:09 PM

Dodgers prospect OF Joc Pederson had huge game on Tuesday, going 4-for-4 with a two home runs, a double, walk and five RBI for Triple-A Albuquerque.

The 21-year-old is off to a ridiculous start this season, as he's now batting .442/.564/.844 with four doubles, five home runs, four steals and a 9/12 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 12 games. Pederson is playing like he's ready for an audition in the major leagues, but he's doubtful to get the call anytime soon without an injury to one of the Dodgers' current outfielders. For that same reason, expect Pederson to be one of the top prospect trade targets this season.
Apr 16 - 1:07 PM

Curtis Granderson (ribs) remained out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Granderson banged his ribs, forearm and knee when he collided with the wall during Monday's game. He's now missed two straight starts, but with the off day Thursday he has a shot to be back in there Friday. Andrew Brown is handling right field Wednesday. Travis d'Arnaud is also getting a day off Wednesday, with Anthony Recker filling in at catcher.

Wednesday's game between the Blue Jays and Twins has been postponed due to inclement weather.

They're expecting a few inches of snow in Minneapolis Wednesday, so they went ahead and banged the game well before first pitch. The weather is supposed to be much better Thursday, when a split doubleheader will now be on the docket. Wednesday's scheduled starters, R.A. Dickey and Mike Pelfrey, will presumably just be pushed back a day.
