Jeremy pitched for the San Antonio Missions this past weekend. He pitched fairly well, gave up two runs on a homer, but settled down for the balance of his time in the game. The team wound up loosing, but Jeremy pitched well.

Jeremy and Jerry have become good friends. Nice to see the Alum connection is alive and well.

Jeremy has a little boy named Jace and a puppy named Ace........ When Jeremy makes it to the show... I think Ace Hardware has a shoe in for a pro mo. LOL

Good to see Jeremy making the post-season All-Star team in the Texas League. Hope that this will get him a promotion to AAA next season and possibly a chance at the 40-man roster.

Mets claim Hefner (MLB.com)

NEW YORK -- The Mets announced Monday that they have claimed right-handed pitcher Jeremy Hefner off waivers from the Pirates and added him to their 40-man roster. The team has also signed left-handed pitcher Garrett Olson and catcher Lucas May to Minor League contracts, and invited both to Spring Training.

Hefner, 25, posted a 9-7 record and a 4.98 ERA for San Diego's Triple-A Tucson affiliate last season, ranking sixth in the Pacific Coast League with 120 strikeouts in 157 1/3 innings. The Pirates scooped up Hefner after the Padres designated him for assignment following the season, only to cut him less than a month later to make room for other acquisitions.

...

The Mets originally drafted Hefner in the 46th round in 2004, and again in the 48th round in '05, but the right-hander declined to sign on both occasions. Ultimately attending Oral Roberts University and signing with the Padres as a fifth-round pick in 2007, Hefner won San Diego's Minor League Pitcher of the Year Award the following season.

it looks like the mets called up Hefner as an extra arm for today's double header. hopefully it's not a cup of coffee type deal and he gets to stick around.

EDIT: with the Mets down 1-6, Hefner enter enters the game in the 5th. Congrats to ORU's most recent major leaguer!!!

The Mets have placed Miguel Batista on the 15-day DL and promoted ORU alum Jeremy Hefner to the starting rotation. Hefner's first MLB start should come Thursday vs. San Diego. 6:10 CT first pitch. He's 0-1 with a 2.25 ERA in 2 relief appearances.

Hefner got lit up after hour rain delay...

In last night’s 11-5 loss to the Padres, Jeremy Hefner allowed six runs and nine hits over 3 2/3 innings before being removed from the game.

Hefner faced 20 batters and threw 73 pitches, 52 of which were strikes.

Hefner threw two scoreless innings prior to a 68 minute rain delay, but came back out and allowed all six runs in the third and fourth innings.

“I’m just real disappointed,†Hefner told reporters after the game. “I gotta be able to keep us in the game, regardless of rain delays, or whatever the circumstances are. … It was pretty difficult, but I still think I had the ability to go in and shut down the lineup. It’s a learning experience, and if I ever have to face it again, I now know what to do.â€

Collins was non-commital as to whether or not Hefner will get another start after his poor performance on Thursday, although he acknowledged the options are limited right now:

Per Barry Lewis in the Tulsa World (5-26-2012):

Former Oral Roberts and Perkins pitcher Jeremy Hefner will receive another start with the New York Mets on Tuesday. Hefner was hit hard as he gave up six runs in 3 2/3 innings of an 11-5 loss to San Diego on Thursday, but that was attributed to him not coming back well after a rain delay.

It was his third major-league appearance. He had a good relief outing in April, and after getting called up a week ago, he pitched a strong five innings in a loss to Toronto.

Nice outing for Jeremy tonight. Posted six strong innings as the starter against the Phillies, giving up 3 runs, striking out 4 and walking none. And, he helped his own cause by smacking his first MLB homerun (a solo shot)! Left the game with a 6-3 lead - game now in a rain delay.

This performance should strengthen Hef's position in the Mets rotation. Let's hope he stays at the MLB level for a long time...

Good thing that Jeremy was removed BEFORE the rain delay. He's going to get a reputation for bringing on bad weather if he keeps this up. :?:

Good to see Hef have some success. I agree that he helped his MLB stock with tonight's performance. Glad that the coach had enough foresight to give him another start in light of his coming back in from a rain delay last game.
