8/27/2016 | Montero to start Monday in place of deGrom

Rafael Montero, who was scratched from his scheduled start for Double-A Binghamton on Saturday, will be recalled to start Monday's series opener against the Marlins in place of Jacob deGrom, the Mets announced.


8/27/2016 | Johnson's slam breaks Citi Field HR record

The vibe around the Mets, Yoenis Cespedes said, is starting to feel a lot like it did the last two months of 2015. There are a few reasons: Desire. Motivation. An unwillingness to give up. The Cuban slugger might be right, but the Mets are also borrowing a formula from last season: Hitting home runs in bunches.


8/27/2016 | Lightning the load: Thor, Mets turning corner

Noah Syndergaard didn't have much time to react. After doubling earlier in the fourth inning, he took a lead off third base and watched as Yoenis Cespedes smoked a 104.2-mph line drive foul down the left-field line. Disaster wasn't as close as it seemed, but all Syndergaard could think of was self-preservation as his 6-foot-6, 240-pound frame staggered a bit before dropping to the grass.


8/27/2016 | Cespedes, slam lead Mets' rout of Phillies

He had sent Citi Field into delirium once more, and Yoenis Cespedes wanted to show the 35,832 fans his appreciation. Jogging back to the dugout in the fourth inning of the Mets' 12-1 win over the Phillies on Saturday night, his 26th homer of the year in the seats, Cespedes raised both hands to his lips and blew the Mets faithful a kiss.


8/27/2016 | Bruce gets 'mental day'; Ruggiano to DL

Jay Bruce felt his balky right calf flare up on Friday, but the Mets were far more concerned with where the right fielder was mentally. On a day where the club scored nine runs on 11 hits to take the first game of a three-game series against the Phillies at Citi Field, Bruce went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts.


8/27/2016 | Gsellman to make first start in finale vs. Phils

Robert Gsellman probably didn't picture his first Major League appearance playing out as it did. Promoted Aug. 22 to provide bullpen stability, the long-haired righty from Santa Monica, Calif., found himself on the mound one day later in the first inning of the Mets' 7-4 win over the Cardinals.


8/26/2016 | Collins: Colon has kept Mets in playoff race

On a day when the Mets announced that they will skip Jacob deGrom's next start because of mechanical issues, Mets manager Terry Collins couldn't provide enough praise for Friday's starter Bartolo Colon, the lone pitcher in New York's rotation who hasn't dealt with any sort of lingering issue this season.


8/26/2016 | Thor looks to keep Mets rolling vs. Phils

If the Mets plan to make a late postseason push, Noah Syndergaard (11-7, 2.61 ERA) will likely need to play a big role. After a string of inconsistent outings, the big righty tossed eight shutout innings vs. the Giants on Aug. 21 for his 11th win of the season. The Phillies hope to halt that momentum Saturday.


8/26/2016 | Blond bombshells make history with homers

Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera opened the bottom of the first inning of the Mets' 9-4 win on Friday with back-to-back homers off Phillies starter Adam Morgan, marking just the second time in franchise history the Mets have opened a game with consecutive dingers.


8/26/2016 | Walker returns from paternity list; T. Rivera optioned

Neil Walker hasn't had much sleep over the last three days, but he wouldn't trade those restless days for anything. Over that time, Walker has been on Major League Baseball's paternity list as his wife and he welcomed their first child, Nora Vail Walker, into the world at 3:06 a.m. ET on Tuesday.


8/26/2016 | Mets decide to skip deGrom's next start

Concerned about Jacob deGrom's consecutive poor starts, the Mets spent this week digging into the Trackman technology available to them at ballparks around the country, hoping to spot the root cause of their ace's struggles. Coming away convinced that deGrom's issues are mechanical, not health-related, the team will spend the next 10 days attempting to fix them.


8/26/2016 | Brinson among top prospect performers Thursday

Brewers No. 2 prospect Lewis Brinson was among the top prospect performers in the Minors on Thursday.

From the months of April through June, as Mets fans busied themselves booing him and calling for his release, Alejandro De Aza compiled a total of five RBIs.


8/25/2016 | After review, Waino loses glove, Yo gets base

With one out in the fifth inning on Thursday, Mets first baseman James Loney popped a ball into short left field that landed just out of the reach of Greg Garcia. The ensuing play at third led to a replay review that opened the floodgates to a four-run inning that put the Mets ahead, 7-0.


8/25/2016 | Lugo exits with cramp, but gets 1st MLB win

What looked to be an uplifting start on Thursday night for Seth Lugo and the Mets ended abruptly, when Lugo trudged off the mound in the sixth inning with a cramp in his right calf.


8/25/2016 | Bruce doesn't expect right calf issue to linger

Though Mets outfielder Jay Bruce did not feel well enough to return to the starting lineup on Thursday against the Cardinals, as he originally intended after leaving Wednesday night's game with a right calf cramp, he does not expect the issue to linger. Bruce simply pushed his targeted return back one day, to Friday.


8/25/2016 | Mets want to give fatigued deGrom extra rest

The Mets are concerned enough about starter Jacob deGrom's recent struggles -- and convinced enough that fatigue is at the root of them -- that they are considering pushing back his next start.


8/25/2016 | De Aza's 5 RBIs help Mets gain in Wild Card chase

A stay in St. Louis did the Mets well, as they left town following Thursday night's 10-6 victory in better National League Wild Card position than when they arrived. Capping an evening in which Seth Lugo secured his first Major League win and the offense piled on by taking advantage of a shoddy Cardinals defense, the Mets won the series and moved to within 3 1/2 games of St. Louis in the Wild Card standings.


8/24/2016 | Command woes at root of deGrom's struggles

Terry Collins was sitting in his office chair earlier this week, brushing aside concern over Jacob deGrom's career-worst start in San Francisco, when he acknowledged an uncomfortable truth clouding the Mets' postseason chase.


8/24/2016 | Granderson cuts down Grichuk with strike

8/24/2016 | Bruce exits Mets' game with right calf strain

Just as their lineup was starting to approach something close to whole, the Mets lost another player to injury.


8/24/2016 | Knee surgery to sideline Niese at least 4 weeks

Jonathon Niese's second stint with the Mets began with a July 31 trade from the Pirates, continued with a pair of unsuccessful rotation turns, and likely ended Wednesday, when the team announced that he will undergo surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his left knee.


8/24/2016 | Cespedes to let 'agents worry about' opt-out

Thirteen months into his Mets tenure, Yoenis Cespedes continues to speak about New York as his long-term home. But Cespedes on Wednesday contradicted the notion that he has decided to honor all three years of his current contract, saying only that his hope is to remain with the Mets.


8/24/2016 | Wainwright, Cards look to widen Wild Card gap with Mets

Adam Wainwright's 8.53 ERA through four starts in August is so far the highest he has posted in any month this season, by over a full point. He'll have a chance to lower it Thursday when he faces Seth Lugo in the series finale between the Mets and Cardinals.


8/24/2016 | Martinez, homers carry Cards past deGrom, Mets

Grasping for ways to correct their poor and puzzling home record, the Cardinals leaned on two of their most reliable sources on Wednesday.
