Date:

Erik Goeddel made his spring debut on Thursday, giving up two runs in an inning against the Red Sox.

Goeddel had been sidelined with a strained lat muscle, and it's probably too late now for him to win a spot in the Mets bullpen. He could still be a fine middle man later on.
Mar 24 - 4:12 PM

Erik Goeddel (lat) threw off the mound again Tuesday.

It was his second session since suffering a lat injury in the early part of camp. Goeddel expects to throw another bullpen session before getting into a game.
Mar 15 - 12:35 PM

Erik Goeddel (lat) threw off a mound on Saturday for the first time since sustaining his injury in late February.

Goeddel has been sidelined for the majority of spring camp due to the strained lat muscle and manager Terry Collins said it's "dicey" whether he'll be ready for Opening Day. The 27-year-old right-hander won't appear in a Grapefruit League game for at least eight days. Goeddel is expected to work in middle relief for the Mets in 2016.
Mar 12 - 1:18 PM

Erik Goeddel (lat) has been cleared by doctors and is expected to begin throwing in a few days.

Goeddel has been slowed by a lat injury in the early part of camp, but it shouldn't keep him sidelined for much longer. The 27-year-old is expected to push for a spot in the Mets' bullpen this spring after posting a 2.43 ERA and 34/9 K/BB ratio over 33 1/3 innings last season.
Mar 2 - 9:29 AM

Erik Goeddel is dealing with an injury to a muscle in his side.

It's unclear when he'll be ready to resume throwing. Goeddel, 27, is coming off a 2.43 ERA and 34/9 K/BB ratio over 33 1/3 innings with the Mets last season. If healthy, he should have a good chance to secure a bullpen spot.
Mar 1 - 2:44 PM

Mets removed RHP Erik Goeddel from their postseason roster for the NLCS.

Goeddel gave up three runs on four hits without recording an out in his lone appearance in the NLDS, which has seemingly cost him his spot in the Mets bullpen. Sean Gilmartin has been added to take his place.

Erik Goeddel (elbow) began a minor league rehab assignment with High-A St. Luice on Sunday.

Goeddel has been on the shelf since June 12 with a strained right elbow. Prior to his injury, he had registered a 1.96 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 23/7 K/BB ratio over 23 innings with the Mets.

Mets placed RHP Erik Goeddel on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain.

Infielder Danny Muno is being called up as the corresponding move here. Goeddel's injury stands as a blow to the Mets pen, as the right-hander was pitching to a 1.96 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 23/7 K/BB ratio in 23 innings prior to the injury. There is no current timetable for his return.

Mets recalled RHP Erik Goeddel from Triple-A Las Vegas.

He'll replace the injured Jenrry Mejia (elbow) on the active roster, as the Mets will stick with an eight-man bullpen. Goeddel had an ugly 5.37 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 64/30 K/BB ratio over 63 2/3 innings in Triple-A last year and figures to pitch in middle relief.

It's the first time on the major league roster for the 25-year-old hurler who posted an uninspiring 5.37 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 64/30 K/BB ratio over 63 2/3 innings at Las Vegas. He'll function in middle relief for the Mets.

Mets optioned RHP Erik Goeddel to minor league camp; reassigned RHPs Logan Verrett and Chase Bradford, LHP Adam Kolarek, C Kevin Plawecki, INFs Danel Muno, and OFs Dustin Lawley, Brandon Nimmo and Cory Vaughn.

No surprises in this bunch. Goeddel was added to the 40-man roster in November after he posted a 4.37 ERA in 134 innings over 25 starts in Double-A last season.
Mon, Mar 10, 2014 01:39:00 PM

Mets purchased the contract of RHP Erik Goeddel from Double-A Binghamton.

Goeddel made 25 starts at Double-A last season, going 9-7 with a 4.37 ERA in 134 innings. Putting the 24-year-old on the 40-man roster protects him in the upcoming Rule 5 Draft.
