A few items out of the National League East..

  • The Mets can be expected to prioritize a catcher this offseason, tweets Jon Heyman of  In addition to that, they’ll also seek help in the outfield and bullpen plus possibly an additional starting pitcher.
  • Earlier this evening, the Phillies announced that first-base coach Sam Perlozzo, bench coach Pete Mackanin, and hitting coach Greg Gross will not be returning in 2013.  The trio of moves may create a chance for Ryne Sandberg to join the staff next season, writes Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
  • The Marlins have officially released Adam Greenberg, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald (via Twitter).  Greenberg was given a chance to have his second at-bat seven years after he was hit in the head by the first pitch he faced in the majors.
