Wed, 23 Aug 2017 02:24:27 EDT

It was shortly after Michael Conforto's big league callup in 2015 that a group of Mets pitchers took it upon themselves to determine what the rookie's nickname should be. The one that stuck will be on Conforto's jersey for the inaugural Players Weekend, Aug. 25-27.

The Mets couldn't avoid pitching to Giancarlo Stanton on Sunday afternoon, and the slugger made them pay. Stanton belted a three-run homer in the seventh inning off Jacob deGrom, as the Marlins held on for a 6-4 victory in the series finale at Citi Field.



Rosario's miscue costs deGrom, offers lesson

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 19:46:20 EDT

Baseball has a way of inflicting growing pains on its young players, no matter how highly touted they may be. That much was apparent for Amed Rosario during the Mets' 6-4 loss to the Marlins on Sunday at Citi Field.

Montero turning corner by pounding strike zone

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 00:05:11 EDT

Rafael Montero stood in front of his locker dressed in a king-like robe and crown, the reward Mets players designate for the player of the game after wins.



Young Mets thankful for Grandy's mentorship

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 19:34:39 EDT

Curtis Granderson's nameplate that hung above his locker in the corner of the Mets' room rested on a table about 20 feet outside the doors that led to the clubhouse. Granderson, who was traded to the postseason-bound Dodgers after the Mets' 3-1 loss to the Marlins on Friday, will not be walking through those doors anytime soon. His teammates know that, but Granderson's presence and impact, especially on the younger players, will still be felt.



Rivera claimed by Cubs; Mets recall Plawecki

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 22:32:14 EDT

NEW YORK -- Backup catcher Rene Rivera was awarded to the Cubs on a waiver claim on Saturday, ending his stint with the Mets that spanned the majority of two seasons. The Mets recalled catcher Kevin Plawecki from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move. Additionally, to replace recently traded outfielder Curtis Granderson on the 25-man roster, the Mets activated pitcher Tommy Milone from the disabled list. Milone had been on the DL retroactive to May 24 with a sprained left knee.

Mets deal Grandy to LA for player to be named

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 03:52:05 EDT

When the Mets signed Curtis Granderson to a four-year, $60 million free agent deal in December 2013, the contract ushered in a new era for the Mets.

Familia to slowly make his way back to closer

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 19:38:10 EDT

Within the next few days, Mets closer Jeurys Familia will return to the mound for a second Minor League rehab appearance.

The organization plans to take his rehab slowly, likely stretching it into the final days of August.

Matz seeking answers to puzzling rough stretch

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 00:49:36 EDT

Steven Matz has tried throwing multiple bullpen sessions between starts, as Jacob deGrom has done with great success. He has tried skipping bullpen sessions altogether.

Reyes lands on DL with sore left rib cage

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 19:25:53 EDT

Jose Reyes stood near his locker, as he has so many times throughout his career, discussing an injury that he hopes is only minor. Tweaking his left oblique Tuesday at Yankee Stadium, Reyes landed on the 10-day disabled list two days later with what the Mets called a "sore left rib cage." The team recalled infielders Gavin Cecchini and Matt Reynolds, also optioning reliever Kevin McGowan to Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move.



Vientos homers, notches four hits in GCL

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 02:16:40 EDT

Gsellman returns to hill, apologizes to Sandy

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 23:41:20 EDT

For the better part of a minute, Robert Gsellman trudged from the pitcher's mound to the dugout, twice glancing behind him to the open bullpen doors.

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 02:05:52 EDT

Alderson: Wright wants to return this season

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 19:32:40 EDT

With a little more than six weeks left in the regular season, the window for David Wright to return to the Mets shrinks by the day. When asked for specifics about Wright's timetable, the Mets typically demur, offering little more than vague assurances that he can still return.

Rosario, Smith give glimpse into future with HRs

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 01:31:13 EDT

He wanted to be sure to fire each one with conviction.
