Journal News wrote:...the 24-year-old right-hander out of Southern Cal has had a breakout season in the system. Bannister has emerged on the radar as a legitimate prospect for the Mets and has also made himself attractive as a chip in potential trades.

After going 9-4 with a 2.56 ERA in 18 starts with Class AA Binghamton, Bannister opened in the Eastern League All-Star Game on July 13 and then moved right up to Class AAA Norfolk. In his first start, he turned in 5 2/3 innings of one-run, two-hit, five-walk ball to earn a 5-1 win in Ottawa on Monday, making him look even more like somebody worth keeping.

"The thing with him is his tremendous ability to make adjustments," said Blaine Beatty, Binghamton's pitching coach. "He's a very intelligent kid. He's got a methodical work ethic and has a great feel for what his abilities are. He has a plan with everything he does. ... He's going to be good.

News about Bannister's hammy:

Metsblog wrote:According to WFAN Sports Radio 660, the Mets will not put RHP Brian Bannister on the disabled list, instead listing him as day-to-day with a grade one strain to his hamstring…

…the buzz around the team is that they have yet to decide whether bannister will or will not make his next scheduled start on tuesday against the nationals…

…thanks to my history of leg injuries, from what i understand, a grade one strain means he will be out of commission for a few days, keeping the hammy wrapped tight, while testing it out on occasion…a grade two tends to put a person on crutches for at least a week…

They had orignally said he wouldn't need time on the DL. Yuck. Hopefully he only needs the minimum 15-days to get going again. Who's looking to fill his spot in the rotation for the time being? Lima Time? :-o

Daily News wrote:Brian Bannister's simulated game has been pushed back to tomorrow [Saturday 5/13]. That would put him on a better schedule to return from the DL and start a week from tonight against the Yankees, which could limit Jeremi Gonzalez to one start.

Daily News wrote:Mets brass is now leaning toward having Brian Bannister pitch in a minor-league game before reentering the rotation. That would prevent the rookie from facing the Yankees on Friday and delay a decision about whether to bounce Jose Lima or Jeremi Gonzalez from the rotation.

The Mets still were debating how to align Lima and Gonzalez, with one journeyman slated to pitch Thursday against the Cardinals and the other the following day against the Yankees.

Bannister, recovering from a strained right hamstring, threw 83 pitches over five innings in a simulated game Saturday in Port St. Lucie, but Mets brass wants to be overly cautious because he's a rookie.


Dissapointing. I thought we were through having to watch anymore of Lima's painful starts.

Bannister left his rehab start after facing only two batters. No further details yet. :,-(

Update: He left the game after 5 pitches when he made a move toward first base. He's flying to New York in order to have an MRI on his hamstring.
