  • Mets' Joey Wendle: Getting first start of season

    Wendle will start at second base and bat ninth in Monday's game versus the Tigers, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Wendle didn't make an appearance in the lineup or off the bench in the weekend series against the Brewers, but he will start the first game of a three-game set versus the Tigers. Jeff McNeil is receiving a day off.

  • Mets' Joey Wendle: In lineup Thursday

    Wendle (shoulder) is starting at second base for the Mets' spring training game against Washington on Thursday.

    Shoulder soreness has kept Wendle out of Grapefruit League play this spring, but he is now set to make his spring debut. Wendle posted just a .610 OPS during his two seasons with Miami, and he will most likely compete for at-bats as a utility man with the Mets this year.

  • Mets' Joey Wendle: Nursing sore shoulder

    Wendle has been dealing with a sore right shoulder, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Wendle's shoulder has prevented him from playing so far during spring training, but he is on track to make his Grapefruit League debut in about a week. The 33-year-old infielder slashed .212/.248/.306 across 318 plate appearances with Miami last season and figures to operate in a utility role for the Mets in 2024.

  • Mets' Joey Wendle: Latches on with Mets

    Wendle signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Mets on Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    After two seasons with the Marlins, Wendle will remain in the NL East and presumably serve in a utility role with the Mets. The 33-year-old infielder had his worst season at the plate in 2023, slashing .212/.248/.306 across 318 plate appearances. While Wendle's defensive versatility may get him in the lineup fairly often next year, his poor bat puts a low ceiling on his fantasy value.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: On bench again Thursday

    Wendle remains out of the lineup Thursday at Milwaukee.

    Wendle has batted just .222/.257/.323 in 103 games (299 plate appearances) this season and seems to have finally lost his grip on a starting role. Garrett Hampson is playing shortstop Thursday for the fourth time in the Marlins' last six games. Three of those starts for Hampson have come against right-handers, including Thursday's tilt versus Brewers righty Adrian Houser.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: Gets breather Saturday

    Wendle isn't in the Marlins' lineup Saturday against Philadelphia, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: Big night in rout

    Wendle went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, three runs scored and four RBI in Wednesday's 11-4 win over the Dodgers.

    The 33-year-old infielder hadn't produced a multi-hit performance since July 7, slashing a woeful .143/.179/.190 over the 42 games in between, and his only other homer in 2023 came June 9. Wendle had begun ceding playing time at shortstop to Garrett Hampson in September, but this offensive eruption might help stabilize his spot in the starting nine.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: Sitting against lefty

    Wendle is not in the lineup Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

    Garrett Hampson will start at shortstop and bat eighth as the Marlins take on left-hander Clayton Kershaw. The left-handed-hitting Wendle has drawn only 28 plate appearances versus southpaws this year.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: Sitting Saturday

    Wendle isn't in the Marlins' lineup Saturday against the Nationals, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: Takes seat Sunday

    Wendle is not in the lineup Sunday against the Nationals.

    Jon Berti will start at shortstop and bat ninth versus the Nats and right-hander Trevor Williams. Wendle went 0-for-2 in the Marlins' loss to Washington on Saturday and holds a weak .229/.264/.325 slash line across 268 total plate appearances this year.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: Sits down Friday

    Wendle isn't in the Marlins' lineup Friday against the Nationals, Paige Leckie of MLB.com reports.

    Wendle went 1-for-7 during Miami's previous series against San Diego, so he'll take a seat Friday amid his offensive woes. Wendle's absence will allow Jon Berti to start at shortstop and bat ninth.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: Nabs fifth steal

    Wendle went 1-for-3 with a double and a stolen base in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Padres.

    The infielder had the Marlins' only extra-base hit of the day in the fifth inning and promptly stole third base, but he was left stranded. Wendle hasn't had a multi-hit performance since July 7, batting a feeble .159 (16-for-88) in 34 games since with zero homers, seven RBI and nine runs, and Wednesday's steal was only his fifth of the season and his first since late June. Despite his prolonged slump, Wendle remains on the strong side of a platoon at shortstop, and Jon Berti has done little to wrest away more playing time from him.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: Taking seat Wednesday

    Wendle is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest versus the Astros.

    Wendle looks to be getting a routine day off for the series finale. With Wendle beginning Wednesday's game on the bench, Jon Berti will draw the start at shortstop.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: Sitting against lefty

    Wendle is not in the lineup Monday against the Astros.

  • Marlins' Joey Wendle: Gets Wednesday off

    Wendle is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

    Wendle often sits against left-handed pitchers, but he'll give way to Jon Berti at shortstop Wednesday while a right-hander (Graham Ashcraft) takes the hill for the Reds. The 33-year-old's move to the bench may have more to do with the Marlins and Reds getting together for a day game after a night game, with Wednesday's series finale beginning at 12:35 p.m. ET.
