Mets' Jose Quintana: Advancing to live BP
Quintana (ribs) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
It will be his first time facing live hitters since he underwent bone-graft surgery on his rib cage in March. If all goes well in that live BP workout, Quintana could advance to a minor-league rehab assignment soon after. The veteran left-hander signed a two-year, $26 million contract with the Mets over the offseason and appears on track to make his official debut for the club sometime before the end of June....

Mets' Jose Quintana: Cleared for mound work
Quintana (ribs) has been cleared to begin throwing off a mound Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The southpaw got good news from the Mets' medical staff following a CT scan Friday and told reporters that he now has the "green light" to begin building up toward his 2023 debut. Quintana required bone-graft surgery in March after a stress fracture in his rib cage revealed a benign tumor. He could be ready to join the rotation by the end of June if his recovery goes well....

Mets' Jose Quintana: To undergo checkup scan
Quintana (ribs) is scheduled to undergo a checkup CT scan Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
If the results show an encouraging level of healing, Quintana should be cleared to take the next step in his throwing program. He began playing catch on flat ground toward the end of April and would seem to be nearing mound workouts. The veteran left-hander required surgery in mid-March to repair a stress fracture on the left side of his rib cage and is not expected to make his Mets debut until closer to the midway point of the 2023 campaign....

Mets' Jose Quintana: Plays catch Friday
Quintana (ribs) played catch Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Quintana said he didn't feel any pain while throwing for the first time since undergoing surgery on his ribs. He still has a long way to go in his rehab process, but a painless session is a good sign for the 34-year-old lefty. He remains on track for a return sometime in July.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Hopes to throw soon
Quintana (ribs) hopes to be cleared to play catch at his six-week follow-up doctor's appointment Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
It would be the first time Quintana has done any throwing since he had surgery in mid-March to repair a stress fracture on the left side of his rib cage. He'll need to be built back up deliberately, with a return sometime in July looking like the best-case scenario.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Transferred to 60-day IL
Quintana (ribs) was transferred Tuesday from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list.
This move opens up a spot on the Mets' 40-man roster for Seth Elledge, who was claimed off waivers Tuesday from Atlanta. Quintana will be out until at least July after requiring a bone graft on his ribcage in late March to repair a stress fracture and remove a benign tumor.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Ready to begin rehab
Quintana (ribs) was in the clubhouse with the Mets prior to their Opening Day win over the Marlins and will begin his rehab this weekend in New York, Abbey Mastrocco of The New York Daily News reports.
The veteran southpaw underwent a bone graft on his ribcage after a stress fracture revealed a benign tumor this spring. Quintana has no timeline for his return to a mound, however, and a July return to the rotation still seems like the best-case scenario. "I don't know yet," he said Thursday. "I don't have dates. This week I start to get moving and can work out. Let's see, it's one step at a time."... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Shuttled to IL
The Mets placed Quintana (rib) on the 15-day injured list Thursday.
Quintana is expected to remain sidelined until at least July while he recovers from surgery to repair a stress fracture on the left side of his rib cage. He'll be joined on the IL by Justin Verlander (shoulder), leaving David Peterson and Tylor Megill both in line for rotation spots with the big club to open the season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Out until at least July
Mets general manager Billy Eppler said Tuesday that Quintana (rib) is not expected back until at least July, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
As confirmed by Eppler, Quintana needs surgery -- including a bone graft -- to repair the stress fracture on the left side of his rib cage. Doctors also found a lesion in that area and Quintana was sent to a tumor specialist, but a biopsy thankfully came back benign. The veteran southpaw joined the Mets on a two-year, $26 million contract over the winter after working to a sharp 2.93 ERA across 165.2 regular-season innings between the Pirates and Cardinals in 2022. David Peterson and Tylor Megill will continue their spring battle to replace Quintana in the rotation, but both could end up getting starts.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Mets GM says shutdown 'premature'
A report stating that Quintana (rib) would be shut down for three months is "premature," Mets general manager Billy Eppler told Anthony DiComo of MLB.com on Monday.
Mike Puma of the New York Post reported earlier Monday that Quintana would not throw a baseball for at least three months and would be out until around the All-Star break as he recovers from a stress fracture in the fifth rib on his left side. However, Eppler said Monday that "I don't have all the information yet" and any talk of the lefty being shut down is "just premature." It's also notable that Eppler didn't outright deny the report. A lengthy absence for Quintana seems to be the most likely scenario, but the Mets could still be in information-gathering mode before making an official decision. Tylor Megill and David Peterson are in the running to fill Quintana's rotation spot.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Will be shut down for three months
Quintana (rib) is expected to be shut down from throwing for at least three months, Mike Puma of the New York Post reported Monday.
When asked earlier Monday, Mets manager Buck Showalter wasn't ready to commit to Quintana starting the season on the injured list. However, it's clear the skipper was just waiting for the team to get their ducks in a row before announcing anything. Quintana is dealing with a small stress fracture in the fifth rib on his left side and the team looks to be taking a cautious approach with his recovery. He'll resume a throwing program around mid-June, with a return potentially around the All-Star break. With Quintana on the shelf, the Mets will need David Peterson and/or Tylor Megill to shoulder some of the rotation load, with Megill perhaps having a leg up.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Manager not committing to IL stint
Mets manager Buck Showalter said Monday that Quintana (rib) is not a given to begin the season on the injured list, Michael Mayer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.
Showalter's comments appear to be more of a case of him not knowing what the exact plan is yet with Quintana rather than him being confident the lefty can avoid an IL stint. One week ago, Quintana was diagnosed with a small stress fracture in the fifth rib on his left side, and the team has yet to map out a schedule for him while his imaging is viewed by multiple parties. More should be known about the veteran hurler's status later this week, but for now his outlook remains up in the air.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Still unclear on injury status
Mets manager Buck Showalter said the Mets are still not sure what the plan will be in regard to Quintana's rib injury, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Showalter told reporters that the team is still trying to decide what the best mode of operation is with Quintana, and that there are a "couple other people" looking at the injury. The left-hander was forced to withdraw from the World Baseball Classic because of the rib fracture, and there's a very good chance that the southpaw will have to open the season on the 10-day injured list. There should be more clarity in the coming days, but for now, it's a frustrating situation for all parties involved.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Team still gathering information
Mets manager Buck Showalter told reporters Friday that the team is still gathering information on the stress fracture in Quintana's rib, Tim Healey of Newsdayreports.
Showalter told reporters there's no new information on the injury, and the team is waiting to get some results back. The left-hander was diagnosed with a small stress fracture on the fifth rib on his left side after leaving Monday's Grapefruit League appearance. There's a very good chance Quintana will start the 2023 season on the injured list, but how long he might be sidelined for isn't yet clear.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Delay in getting more test results
Quintana's flight to New York was canceled Tuesday, so there's been a delay in the Mets getting further testing on the stress fracture in his rib.
The left-hander will likely fly out Wednesday to get further testing. Mets manager Buck Showalter told reporters that he's hopeful for good news but noted that the injury does "take one more notch down on the depth list." Until Quintana completes the testing, there won't be a clear timetable for when the southpaw will be able to return.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Dealing with stress fracture in rib
Quintana has been diagnosed with a small stress fracture in the fifth rib on his left side, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Quintana exited Sunday's Grapefruit League outing with what the Mets called left side tightness at the time and now we have a more specific diagnosis. The left-hander is headed back to New York to undergo additional testing. The team should have more on Quintana's timetable once those results are in, but this certainly seems like an injured list situation. A Quintana absence would clear a rotation spot for David Peterson (foot) and/or Tylor Megill.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Quintana: Officially out for WBC
Quintana (side) withdrew from the World Baseball Classic and will undergo testing Monday, Pat Ragazzo of SI.com reports.
In a disappointing turn of events for the left-hander, Quintana will no longer participate in the upcoming WBC with his home country of Colombia, but he will now remain with Mets camp and get imaging on his injured left side. The 34-year-old signed a two year contract with New York in December after a resurgent 2022 campaign where he produced a 2.93 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 137 strikeouts over 165.2 innings in 32 appearances with the Pirates and Cardinals. As the only southpaw in the projected rotation right now, a significant injury could prove to be a big blow to the Mets in the early season.... See More ... See Less
