When Amed Rosario was told of his promotion to the Mets on Monday, the first person he called was his sister.
Charlie Blackmon crashed into the center-field wall to rob Asdrubal Cabrera to finish the top of the ninth inning, then scored the winning run on Nolan Arenado’s walk-off single in the bottom of the inning, as the Rockies beat the Mets, 5-4, at Coors Field on Tuesday night, and took the lead in the National […]
The Mets plan to call up top prospect Amed Rosario in time for Tuesday’s series opener in Denver.
The Mets, who both added and subtracted from their system leading up to that deadline, created perhaps the biggest prospect-related buzz by announcing their top prospect, Amed Rosario, would make his highly-anticipated Major League debut in Denver on Tuesday.
When the Mets traded for Addison Reed in August 2015, he was a middling former closer with a career 4.20 ERA, recently returned from a Minor League demotion. Over nearly two full seasons with the Mets, Reed transformed into something more, a wipeout late-game artist with a keen command of the strike zone.
Like many around baseball, AJ Ramos expected the Marlins to trade him prior to Monday’s non-waiver Trade Deadline. But he never considered that a team such as the Mets, outside of realistic playoff contention, might acquire him.
James Paxton capped a near-perfect month with his franchise-record sixth win in July on Sunday, striking out eight over six shutout innings in the Mariners’ 8-0 win over the Mets. The victory secured a series win for the Mariners, moving them back to .500.

Mets shortstop Jose Reyes left Sunday’s game in the fifth inning after James Paxton hit him on the left forearm with a 98-mph fastball. Reyes hunched on the ground for about a minutes, speaking to members of the training staff before walking off the field. Asdrubal Cabrera replaced him as a pinch-runner.
It’s been a tough year at times for Yovani Gallardo, but the veteran right-hander outdueled Mets ace Jacob deGrom on Saturday as the Mariners evened the Interleague series with a 3-2 victory at Safeco Field.
James Paxton is shooting for six on Sunday. The Mariners’ starter has a chance to win all six of his decisions in July with a win against the Mets in the rubber game at Safeco Field.
Jacob deGrom wandered a few steps toward home plate then shuffled off to the side, helpless and not entirely sure what to do. deGrom’s 95-mph fastball had just struck Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger in the face, knocking him out of the Mets’ 3-2 loss Saturday to the Mariners.
