  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Can't secure roster spot

    Mendick will not make the White Sox's Opening Day roster, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Mendick was in camp on a minor-league deal and has maintained just a .614 OPS with three extra-base hits across 41 at-bats. The team will instead opt to keep Braden Shewmake on the roster, who should fill a utility role along the infield.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Will be in White Sox's camp

    Mendick signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training.

    It's a return to the South Side for Mendick, who spent the first four seasons of his big-league career with the White Sox before putting up a .509 OPS in 33 games for the Mets in 2023. The utility man will attempt to win a reserve role.

    The Mets placed Mendick on outright waivers Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Mendick slashed just .185/.232/.277 during his time with the Mets, and he'll now join five other teammates on the waiver wire as the team clears space on its 40-man roster. The 32-year-old infielder can elect free agency if he clears waivers.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Recalled from Syracuse

    The Mets recalled Mendick from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Mets optioned Mendick to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    With the arrival of Brett Baty and Ronny Mauricio to the major-league squad Friday, Mendick will be pushed back to the minors. The 29-year-old infielder slashed just .190/.227/.286 across 66 plate appearances with the Mets and will likely finish the season in Syracuse.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Enjoys big offensive effort Monday

    Mendick went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and scored an additional run in an 11-2 rout of the Cubs on Monday.

    Pete Alonso powered the Mets with two homers early, and Mendick provided the icing on the cake with a three-run shot in the seventh inning that made the score 10-2. The long ball was the first of the campaign for Mendick and just his 11th in 440 career at-bats. The 29-year-old started at third base Monday in the wake of Brett Baty being sent down to the minors, and Mendick could operate in the short side of a platoon with Mark Vientos at the hot corner moving forward.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Gets start at third

    Mendick will start at third base and bat seventh in Monday's game against the Cubs.

    With Brett Baty optioned to Triple-A on Monday and Luis Guillorme still on the injured list, Mendick will find more playing time. The 29-year-old has been great against left-handed pitching, slashing .360/.385/.560 in 26 plate appearances. He will face Cubs' left hander Drew Smyly. Mark Vientos should start at third base against righties while getting nods at designated hitter against southpaws.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Recalled from Syracuse

    The Mets recalled Mendick from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.

    Mendick has failed to record a hit or even a walk in seven plate appearances this season at the major-league level, but the Mets need infield depth with Luis Guillorme (calf) landing on the 10-day injured list Saturday.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Sent back to Triple-A

    The Mets optioned Mendick to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Promoted to majors

    Mendick was recalled by the Mets on Saturday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    The Mets are in need of infield depth after trading Eduardo Escobar to the Angels on Friday. Mendick fills that role reasonably well, as he's capable of playing across most of the infield. In 317 plate appearances with Triple-A Syracuse this season, he's maintained a .264/.356/.401 line. Mendick's stay in the majors may be short-lived, as Mark Vientos is a candidate to be recalled as soon as he is eligible to return to the majors.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Sent to Triple-A

    Mendick was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday.

    Mendick had a .619 slash line in 10 games during spring training and was unable to earn a spot on New York's Opening Day roster. The 29-year-old will serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Syracuse while Tim Locastro and Darin Ruf continue to battle for the final roster spot.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Cleared for spring debut

    Mendick (knee) will start at second base and bat third Wednesday in the Mets' exhibition game against the Nicaraguan team, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Mendick will be making his spring debut in what marks his first competitive action since he tore the ACL in his right knee and fractured the fibula in his right leg while playing for the White Sox in a June 22, 2022 game. Before suffering the season-ending injury, Mendick was productive in a utility infield role for Chicago, slashing .289/.343/.443 across 106 plate appearances. After joining the Mets on a one-year, $1 million deal over the winter, Mendick should have a good chance of securing a spot on the Opening Day roster and potentially earning a short-side platoon role at second or third base.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Nearing spring debut

    Mendick (knee) is expected to begin playing in Grapefruit League games within the next week, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Mendick has been eased into action this spring after he suffered both a fractured fibula and a torn ACL in his right leg last June. The plan calls for him to get a lot of action at a lot of different spots once Mets camp thins out for the World Baseball Classic. The 29-year-old super-utilityman signed a one-year, $1 million contract with New York in December.
