Chris Flexen underwent arthroscopic knee surgery recently according to Mets.com’s Anthony Dicomo. According to the report, Flexen had a bone chip in his knee that was causing swelling and discomfort during camp, as he was scratched from two games.

He’s expected to be out for two to three weeks and will likely not be starting the season in his projected Double-A. His Profile is Available under the Binghamton Rumble Ponies Tab at the Menu.
The Mets signed Donovan Hand, who was featured in Sunday’s game. Hand had been with Milwaukee for a majority of his career, and played with Cincinnati the last two seasons. He throws a fourseam fastball that reaches up to 91, and a two seamer he relies on that gets up to 90. He also has an above-average slider. I’m not sure whether or not he goes to Binghamton, but he can pitch both as a reliever and a starter.
The Mets also signed undrafted free agent Danny Hoy, who had a great career playing four years at Princeton University and then played in the Independent League for a few games. I don’t have a scouting report on him, but he may be a bench guy at one of the A-ball teams or a starter with Brooklyn. You can view his Princeton Stats Here
