A year ago, at the non-waiver Trade Deadline, Jay Bruce went from the Reds to the Mets. It was an emotional moment for Bruce. He didn’t hide it. Nothing against the Mets, but the Reds were his team. He signed with them out of high school and never thought he would play somewhere else.
Wherever David Peterson roamed, familiarity followed. As Peterson emerged from the Mets’ clubhouse Saturday afternoon, Steven Matz, a fellow left-handed pitcher, walked over to greet him. Moments later it was Jacob deGrom, who shares an agency with the Mets’ 2017 first-round Draft pick. Then Michael Conforto, a former Oregon State Beaver, offered some good-natured ribbing […]
Cody Bellinger and Corey Seager give all pitchers fits; that much is widely known throughout the Majors. But even more impressively, the young duo of Dodgers’ left-handed hitters still smoke the ball against same-sided pitchers. That doesn’t bode well for Mets starter Steven Matz, as the left-hander will take the mound opposite Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin […]
Turns out, third time is not the charm for Seth Lugo. That is, the third time he goes through an opponent’s batting order in a game. Offenses are now hitting .381 off Lugo the third time through the order following the conclusion of the Mets’ 7-4 to the Dodgers on Saturday.
The Greatest Show on Earth continued its record run at Citi Field on Saturday, as five Dodgers homered in a 7-4 comeback win over the Mets, who hit four home runs.
The best team in baseball rolled into the Big Apple and rolled right over the Mets on Friday night. Yu Darvish allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts in his Dodgers debut, a 6-0 win at Citi Field that kept his new club’s division lead over Arizona at 14 games.
While the Mets’ rotation has been decimated by injuries, the Dodgers now feature arguably the most potent staff in baseball, even in Clayton Kershaw’s absence. Rich Hill makes his first start of August on Saturday at Citi Field after breezing through July, finishing the month 4-0 with a 1.45 ERA (five earned runs in 31 […]
Matt Harvey threw off the slope of a mound this week, and the Mets right-hander is scheduled to throw a full bullpen session Sunday for the first time since landing on the disabled list June 15 with a stress injury to his right shoulder.
From the moment Amed Rosario arrived in the big leagues this week, talk shifted to when his former Triple-A Las Vegas teammate, Dominic Smith, might turn up as well. The Mets’ second-ranked prospect according to MLB Pipeline, Smith earned Pacific Coast League Player of the Month honors for July, batting .385 with eight home runs […]
In a hitter-friendly environment like Coors Field, missed chances come back to bite. In the Mets’ 5-4 loss to the Rockies on Thursday, a big missed chance occurred in the fifth inning.
As the Nationals have pulled farther and farther away in the National League East, the main chatter coming out of Queens lately centered around when — not if — Mets’ top prospect Amed Rosario would be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas.
