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.

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.

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. The day the signing became official at MLB's Winter Meetings, the Mets crowed about their desire to start competing on an annual basis, with a rising payroll and so much bright, young pitching.

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. Matz has commissioned hitting coaches Kevin Long and Pat Roessler to examine whether he is tipping pitches. He has dabbled in new drills with pitching coach Dan Warthen. None of it has worked.

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. Gsellman appeared agitated, distressed -- hardly the emotionless soul he purported to be just one night earlier, when Gsellman defied Mets general manager Sandy Alderson's concern over his poor results.

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 02:05:52 EDT

One of the first things Travis d'Arnaud did upon learning he would play the infield on Wednesday was text David Wright, the Mets' longtime third baseman. d'Arnaud requested permission to use Wright's glove. A few beats later, the injured Wright texted back.

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.

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 01:44:55 EDT

The Mets placed him there Tuesday, scratching him from his scheduled Subway Series start Wednesday against the Yankees due to a right shoulder impingement. Right-hander Robert Gsellman, who has been on the DL since June 28 due to a strained left hamstring, will take Lugo's place Wednesday at Citi Field.

Collins: Montero, Robles 'have work to do'

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 00:13:52 EDT

By the fourth inning of the Mets' 4-2 loss to the Yankees on Monday, Hansel Robles was already warming in the visiting bullpen. Consider it the Rafael Montero effect. The Mets are so uncertain when and how their most enigmatic pitcher might implode that, despite Montero's three standout innings to open the game, they were worried.

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 00:23:43 EDT

It was Amed Rosario's first, and he made it count. On the day Mets No. 2 prospect Dominic Smith debuted, it was Rosario, their No. 1 prospect according to, who stole the show.

Mets No. 2 prospect Smith makes MLB debut

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 00:35:36 EDT

A deep crack snarls up the length of Dominic Smith's cell phone, several others spider-webbing from it.

By the time Smith arrived at Citizens Bank Park on Friday for his big league debut, it had gone dark for good.

Trade of Bruce makes room for prospect Smith

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 19:04:44 EDT

Mets trade Bruce to Tribe for Minors RHP Ryan

Wed, 9 Aug 2017 23:35:15 EDT

Prior to the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, the Mets did not dismantle their roster completely, trading significant pieces in Lucas Duda and Addison Reed but also acquiring one in AJ Ramos.

The latest evidence surfaced late Wednesday night, when the Mets traded outfielder Jay Bruce in a waiver deal to the Indians for right-handed pitching prospect Ryder Ryan.
