  • Kodai Senga Throws First Bullpen Session

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    New York Mets starting pitcher Kodai Senga (shoulder) threw his first bullpen session on Tuesday. It's a significant step forward for Senga, who is recovering from a right posterior shoulder capsule strain. With the Mets having him pitch every six days instead of every five however, Senga's ramp-up process could extend a bit longer than expected. The 31-year-old All-Star right-hander is eligible to come off to 60-day injured list on May 27, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to be available until early June at best based on the way the team is handling their ace's recovery. Right-hander Jose Butto is helping fill in New York's rotation for the time being, allowing just one run with 15 strikeouts over 12 innings (two starts) to begin the 2024 season. Butto should be an adequate streamer in favorable situations, but Saturday's scheduled start on the road against a vaunted Los Angeles Dodgers lineup is not one of them.

  • Kodai Senga To Throw Off A Mound Soon

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    New York Mets right-hander Kodai Senga (shoulder) is throwing out to 120 feet and will start playing catch from a mound imminently, manager Carlos Mendoza said over the weekend. Senga was recently moved to the 60-day injured list, which means he won't be eligible to come off the IL until the final week of May. The 31-year-old hurler suffered a right-shoulder strain during spring training and was forced to begin his second major-league season on the IL for the Mets. New York is playing things very safe with their ace, so fantasy managers must continue to be patient and keep him stashed in an IL spot. With Tylor Megill (shoulder) also injured, Jose Butto has been the one to benefit and has been excellent in his two spot starts for the Mets. He's now sticking in the rotation until either Senga or Megill return.

  • Kodai Senga Moved To 60-Day IL

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    The New York Mets have transferred right-hander Kodai Senga (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list. In corresponding moves, they have selected reliever Tyler Jay from Triple-A Syracuse have optioned righty Dedniel Nunez to Syracuse. Senga initially complained of right arm fatigue early in spring training but was eventually diagnosed with a right-shoulder capsular strain that will now keep him sidelined until May 27 at a minimum but a June return to action is more likely. It's a tough blow for the Mets as Senga tossed a healthy 2.98 ERA alongside a 29.1% K% across 29 starts for the Mets in his first season in North America in 2023. He is worth an injury stash into the summer as a result.

  • Kodai Senga Playing Catch Every Other Day

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    New York Mets president of baseball operations David Stearns said that the team will need one to two more weeks before hammering down a concrete throwing plan for right-hander Kodai Senga (shoulder). Senga is currently playing catch every other day. The 31-year-old second-year hurler is recovering from a right-shoulder capsular strain that he suffered in spring training and is expected to take at least six weeks to ramp up before making his 2024 season debut for the Mets. The team is proceeding cautiously after Senga was one of their most consistent starters in 2023 in his first year in the States. Despite the fact that Senga will be on the shelf for a while to open the year, he needs to remain stashed in an injured list spot in all fantasy leagues.

  • Kodai Senga Throws Wednesday

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    New York Mets right-hander Kodai Senga (shoulder) did some throwing at Citi Field on Wednesday. Senga continues to work his way back from a moderate posterior capsule strain in his right shoulder and is expected to take six weeks to ramp back up, so fantasy managers can expect him to miss at least the first month and a half of the 2024 campaign. The 31-year-old was extremely impressive in his first year in the big leagues with the Mets in 2023, going 12-7 with a 2.98 ERA (3.63 FIP) and 1.22 WHIP with 77 walks and 202 strikeouts in 166 1/3 innings over his 29 starts. While his shoulder injury this spring has dimmed his fantasy value for his sophomore season, Senga should be stashed in an injured list spot in all leagues.

  • Kodai Senga's Ramp-Up Period Could Be Stretched Out

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    The New York Mets are considering having right-hander Kodai Senga (shoulder) throw on a once-every-six-days schedule once he's able to ramp up and pitch in games, which means what would for some pitchers be a six-week ramp-up, might last a little longer for Senga. "I feel good. I feel ready," Senga said through an interpreter. He expects to begin playing catch within the next week once he passes internal testing. The 31-year-old Japanese hurler has been cleared to begin activities after an MRI and a visit with doctors earlier this week as he works his way back from a moderate posterior capsule strain in his right shoulder. However, he's going to start the 2024 season on the injured list and will miss at least the first month of the season and possibly more.

    Mets ace Kodai Senga has been shut down for nearly a month after being diagnosed with a capsule strain in his right shoulder, but after a recent MRI he’s been cleared to return to baseball activity. Senga won’t start throwing immediately but could do so within the next week, manager Carlos Mendoza announced to reporters…

  • Kodai Senga To Begin Throwing Within A Week

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    New York Mets right-hander Kodai Senga (shoulder) is scheduled to begin throwing within a week, according to manager Carlos Mendoza. Senga got an MRI exam on Tuesday and doctors cleared him to begin activity. The Mets will wait until he passes their internal strength tests before he does so to make sure he's ready, according to the skipper. Mendoza said the 31-year-old's ramp-up period will take "at least" six weeks, so Senga is going to miss the first month of the regular season and probably most of May as well. He's rehabbing his way back from a moderate posterior capsule strain in his right shoulder. Senga had a solid first year in the big leagues for the Mets in 2023, but his shoulder injury this spring has put a serious dent in his 2024 fantasy value.

  • Kodai Senga Won't Throw For Another 7-10 Days

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    New York Mets right-hander Kodai Senga (shoulder) won't throw for another seven to 10 days, according to president of baseball operations David Stearns. After that, the Mets will get another round of imaging done on Senga to determine the next step. Senga's three-week shutdown has expired, but the team's "internal pacing" calls for a longer wait. The Mets just aren't going to take any chances with their 31-year-old ace to begin the season. He is recovering from a moderate posterior capsule strain in his right shoulder and will open the 2024 campaign on the injured list. Senga is pretty certain to miss the first month of the season at this point, which is obviously a pretty big hit to his fantasy appeal as a back-end starter after his impressive first season in the big leagues in 2023.

  • Kodai Senga Waiting An Extra Week To Resume Throwing

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    The New York Mets are planning to wait an extra week beyond March 15 (the original target) for right-hander Kodai Senga (shoulder) to begin throwing. "But that doesn't mean he's having any setback," manager Carlos Mendoza said. "We want to make sure that before he picks up a baseball he's strong and we're comfortable." The Mets want to make absolutely sure the 31-year-old is healthy coming off a bout with a moderate posterior capsule strain in his right shoulder this spring. The extra week layoff is going to push Senga's eventual 2024 season debut to sometime in either late April or early May. His injury has set up veteran lefty Jose Quintana to make the team's Opening Day start on March 28 on the road against the Milwaukee Brewers. Senga's injury makes him a more risky No. 3/4 fantasy starter going into the season.

  • Offseason In Review: New York Mets

    Headshot for Austin Allen

    After a disastrous 2023 season, there have been a lot of changes for the Mets. They have a new president of baseball operations, a new manager and plenty of new faces on the roster. With 2024 planned on being a sort of bridge year, the offseason moves ended up staying on the modest side, though…

  • Mets Looking At Michael Lorenzen, Other Pitchers

    Headshot for Mike Clevinger

    The New York Mets have recently checked in on free-agent starting pitchers, including right-hander Michael Lorenzen, according to league sources. However, the communication likely reflects a desire to stay connected if they have another injury rather than imminent, serious interest. New York's top starter, Kodai Senga, has already been shut down for three weeks due to a strain in the back of his shoulder. FanGraphs projects the Mets to have the sixth-worst rotation in the majors, so adding more pitching depth would be a good idea. They are banking on a bounce-back from Luis Severino and steps forward from Sean Manaea and Tylor Megill. Other options to beef up the rotation besides Lorenzen include lefties Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery and righty Mike Clevinger.

  • Kodai Senga To Be Shut Down For Three Weeks

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    New York Mets right-hander Kodai Senga (shoulder) received a platelet-rich plasma injection in his shoulder in New York. His shutdown period should last three weeks before he restarts a throwing program. Senga is going to start the 2024 regular season on the injured list as a result. The 31-year-old is dealing with a moderate posterior capsule strain in his right shoulder earlier this week. It's a blow to the top of the Mets' starting rotation and Senga's fantasy value in upcoming fantasy drafts. In a best-case scenario, Senga will probably miss the first month of the regular season, so fantasy managers need to bake that into their season-long projections. In his first big-league season in 2023, Senga impressed, posting a 2.98 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 202 strikeouts and 77 walks in 166 1/3 frames.

  • Kodai Senga Expected To Begin Season On Injured List

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    New York Mets right-hander Kodai Senga (shoulder) has a mild strain of his posterior capsule in his right shoulder and will be shut down until symptoms subside, according to president of baseball operations David Stearns. Senga is expected to begin the 2024 regular season on the injured list. We don't have a specific timetable for when the 31-year-old hurler will be able to make his season debut, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he missed the first month of action. It's a big blow to Senga's fantasy value and the Mets' starting rotation to kick off the season. With Senga on the shelf, Adrian Houser, Tylor Megill, Jose Butto and Max Kranick will now compete for the right to take Senga's spot in the rotation to begin the season.

  • Kodai Senga Experiencing "A Bit Of Arm Fatigue"

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    New York Mets right-hander Kodai Senga is experiencing a bit of arm fatigue and did not work out with the team on Wednesday. Skipper Carlos Mendoza said the club should have more information on their valued starter in the coming days. The 31-year-old made his North American debut in the 2023 season and did not disappoint with a 2.98 ERA and a 29.1% K% across 29 starts, going 12-7 in the process. He projects to lead a re-vamped Mets rotation in 2024 as ATC is projecting some regression for Senga in 2023 with a 3.70 ERA in 28 starts but a 12-9 record and 27.5% K% would serve fantasy managers well. While the arm fatigue sounds minor at this point, managers will want to keep an eye out for an update in the coming days.

  • Kodai Senga Working On A New Pitch?

    Headshot for Kodai Senga

    New York Mets right-hander Kodai Senga said that he's working on adding a new pitch to his arsenal as he enters his second year in the big leagues. "Yes, but it's still a work in progress so maybe we'll find out soon," Senga said when asked if he was developing a new pitch this spring. The 30-year-old displayed a nasty forkball in his rookie season with the Mets in 2023 and was a big success in his first season, going 12-7 with a 2.98 ERA (3.63 FIP) and 1.22 WHIP with 77 walks and 202 strikeouts in 166 1/3 innings over his 29 starts. The Japanese hurler finished second in the National League Rookie of the Year voting and could be even harder to hit with a new pitch added to his arsenal. The one knock on Senga last year was that he had a concerning 11.1 percent walk rate and led the league with 14 wild pitches.
