Mets Notes: Wright, Pagan, Herrera

Jon Niese faces Barry Zito tonight as the Mets open a four-game series with the Giants at Citi Field. Here's the latest from the Amazin's…

  • David Wright tells reporters (including Jon Heyman of CBS Sports) that there have been "zero" discussions with the Mets about a contract extension.  Wright doesn't mind, since he considers contract talk to be a distraction from playing.  We heard last week that the Mets were keen to offer Wright a new deal but first wanted to ensure that he could stay healthy.
  • "Whether he realizes it or not, Wright, who has said consistently he doesn’t want to leave New York, is starting to put pressure on Mets ownership to get negotiations going to ensure that he does indeed stay," writes Bill Madden of the New York Daily News.  Madden feels the Mets should do everything in their power to extend Wright, their franchise player.
  • Angel Pagan talks to ESPN New York's Mike Mazzeo about being traded to the Giants in December, which Pagan said surprised him.
  • Left-hander Danny Herrera will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair a torn ligament in his pitching elbow, Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports.
