  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Moves to injured list

    Hunter was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with low-back tightness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Hunter hasn't pitched since Sept. 14 and will now be unavailable for the next couple weeks. The veteran right-hander will be eligible to return for the final few days of the regular season, though it's unclear if he'll be healthy by that point.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Returns to action

    Hunter (back) was activated off the injured list Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    A back issue sidelined Hunter for just shy of three weeks. He's good to go after tossing four scoreless innings across three rehab appearances. Michael Perez was optioned to clear space on the roster.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Initiates rehab assignment

    Hunter (back) struck out two and worked around one hit in a scoreless inning in his first rehab appearance Saturday with Double-A Binghamton.

    Hunter was placed on the 15-day injured list Aug. 6 with lower-back tightness, and the fact that he was cleared to begin a rehab assignment exactly one week later suggests he's on track for a minimum-length stay on the shelf. The right-hander had provided a 2.51 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 14.1 innings out of the Mets bullpen before landing on the IL.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Lands on injured list

    Hunter was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday due to lower-back tightness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Hunter has made 11 appearances for the Mets this season, posting a 2.51 ERA and 16:2 K:BB in 14.1 innings. David Peterson was called up to take his place on the roster ahead of his start Saturday against Atlanta.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Contract selected

    Hunter had his contract selected by the Mets on Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Hunter joined the Mets on a minor-league deal in late April and is now up with the big-league club after posting a 4.61 ERA over 13.2 innings with Triple-A Syracuse. The veteran right-hander didn't allow a run over eight frames in 2021 but missed most of the campaign while dealing with a back injury.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Back with Mets

    Hunter agreed to a minor-league contract with the Mets on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports

    The veteran right-hander had a throwing showcase Friday for scouts from multiple teams, and it didn't take long for him to reach a deal. Hunter was with the Mets in 2021 but was limited to four appearances by a back injury, which eventually required surgery. He last saw significant action back in 2020 with the Phillies and had a 4.01 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB across 24.2 innings.

  • Tommy Hunter: Healthy, throwing for teams

    Hunter (back) threw for scouts for multiple teams Friday in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., Britt Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.

    The 35-year-old righty reliever is seemingly back to full health after he didn't see any game action from late May onward last season due to a back injury that ultimately required surgery. According to Ghiroli, Hunter's fastball hit 95 miles per hour on multiple occasions during Friday's throwing session, putting him roughly in line with his pre-surgery velocity levels. Hunter will likely have to settle for a minor-league deal with an organization and prove his health over several appearances at the Triple-A level before getting another look in the majors.

  • Rays' Tommy Hunter: Traded to Tampa Bay

    Hunter (back) was traded from the Mets to the Rays along with Matthew Dyer on Friday, with Rich Hill going the other way, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Hunter is presumably included in the deal as a salary dump. He's been out with back pain since late May, with reports from earlier this week indicating he may not pitch again this season. He'll be a free agent this offseason.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Status in doubt

    Hunter (back) may not pitch again this season, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    The veteran right-hander has been on the shelf since mid-May with a back injury, and he was shifted to the 60-day injured list in June. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but Hunter apparently hasn't made much progress in his recovery and will have a tough time rejoining the Mets during the second half.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Hunter (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Hunter has been out since late May due to lower-back soreness. The issue is evidently serious enough to keep him out past the All-Star break. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Mets to add Nick Tropeano, who was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Back recovering well

    Hunter (back) has been moving better in recent days and may return sooner than expected, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    The Mets' concern over Hunter's injury was largely driven by his history of back issues, according to manager Luis Rojas. The reliever is first eligible to return from the injured list Saturday and that remains a legitimate possibility due to his encouraging progress.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Out with back injury

    Hunter landed on the 10-day injured list with lower-back pain Friday.

    Hunter has made four appearances for the Mets this season, throwing eight scoreless innings while allowing just four hits, though his 6:3 K:BB isn't particularly impressive. The transaction was backdated to Wednesday, so Hunter can return a week from Saturday if he's healthy. Yennsy Diaz was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Opening bullpen game

    Hunter will be the first pitcher on the mound for what's expected to be a bullpen game Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Hunter hasn't started a game since 2012. He's unlikely to pitch deep into Saturday's game, as he hasn't recorded more than six outs in an appearance since 2013. Joey Lucchesi and Trevor Hildenberger are the top candidates to follow him out of the bullpen.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Contract selected by Mets

    Hunter's contract was selected by the Mets on Thursday.

    Hunter served as a non-roster invitee this spring and will join the major-league roster after Jordan Yamamoto was sent down and Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) was placed on the 60-day injured list. The veteran made 24 relief appearances for the Phillies last year, posting a 4.01 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 24.2 innings.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Back with Mets

    Hunter signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Tuesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    The 34-year-old was in camp as a non-roster invitee before being released last week, but he agreed to a new minors deal with the Mets on Tuesday. Hunter had a 4.01 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB over 24.2 innings for the Phillies last season.

  • Tommy Hunter: Heads to free agency

    Hunter was released by the Mets on Thursday.

    The veteran righty joined the Mets as a non-roster invitee prior to camp but had an opt-out in his contract in the event that he didn't earn a roster spot. He evidently wasn't going to break camp in the big-league bullpen, so he'll now look for work elsewhere.

  • Mets' Tommy Hunter: Receives camp invite from Mets

    Hunter signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Sunday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training.

    The veteran right-hander spent 2020 in Philadelphia and had a solid season with a 4.01 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB over 24.2 innings. Hunter has a 3.24 ERA since converting to a full-time reliever in 2013 and should be able to crack the Mets' Opening Day roster with a decent showing in spring training.
