Yoenis Cespedes told reporters after Friday's game against the Yankees that he was unsure if he can finish the season due to his calcification in both heels.

Cespedes told reporters after the game that he's been dealing with heel issues for the past 15 years. He also said that the only way to fix the issue is with surgery, and that the typical recovery time is 8-to-10 months. If Cespedes has the operation in the offseason -- something he's considering -- it would mean he'd miss at least a portion of the first half of the season, if not all of it.

Buster Olney of ESPN reports that Mets closer Jeurys Familia will be traded to the Athletics if the two sides can finish the deal.

Olney earlier reported that the Mets had agreed to the structure of a deal involving Familia and an unknown team. If the structure of the deal is in place, it likely means that money is the final hurdle, and the Mets have reportedly said they're willing to include cash with Familia to get a better return. With a 2.88 ERA and 43 strikeouts over 40 2/3 innings, the 29-year-old right-hander would give Oakland an excellent bridge to Blake Treinen and give the Athletics one of the better bullpens in the American League.
Jul 20 - 11:42 PM

Noah Syndergaard limited the Yankees to one run over five innings as part of a 7-5 victory on Friday.

The Yankees had their fair share of chances, as Syndergaard gave up eight hits, but the only run scored on a sacrifice fly from Giancarlo Stanton in the third inning. "Thor" struck out four and walked none while throwing 52 out of 84 pitches for strikes. It’s worth noting that he showed a noticeable dip in velocity toward the end of his start, but Mets manager Mickey Callaway said he was just tired. He still lines up to make his next start against the Padres next week.
Jul 20 - 11:38 PM

Robert Gsellman notched a six-out save to finish off Friday’s win over the Yankees.

It wasn’t easy, as Gsellman needed 44 pitches to get through it. He gave up two runs (both unearned) on two hits and two walks (one intentional) along the way. It was a surprise to see him come back out for the ninth inning, but the Mets appear to be closing in on a trade partner for Jeurys Familia. Gsellman would probably be at the top of the depth chart to close whenever a trade is completed, though Seth Lugo and perhaps even Anthony Swarzak could be in the mix if he can show some signs of improvement.

Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk, and two runs scored against the Yankees on Friday in his return from the disabled list.

Cespedes didn’t show any signs of rust at the plate despite it being his first game action in the majors in over two months. He went deep against Domingo German in the third inning with a shot which bounced off the left field foul pole. The Mets brought him back as the designated hitter for the interleague series against the Yankees and he figures to stay there all weekend. He’s going to be handled with care moving forward, with the possibility that he could even see time at first base on occasion.

Michael Conforto went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored in Friday’s victory over the Yankees.

Conforto doubled home a run in the first inning before knocking in a run with a single in the fifth. He later provided some valuable insurance with a sacrifice fly in the ninth. Conforto has struggled in his return from shoulder surgery, batting just .220 with 11 homers and a .716 OPS through 86 games, but perhaps we’ll see a boost in performance the further removed he gets from the procedure.
Jul 20 - 11:36 PM

Giancarlo Stanton knocked in two runs against the Mets on Friday.

Stanton went 1-for-3 with a walk in the loss, driving in runs on a sacrifice fly in the third inning and a ground out in the eighth. While Stanton is still striking out in bunches, he’s hit safely in six straight games and 10 out of his last 11. He’s pulled his batting average up from .238 to .278 since the middle of June.
Jul 20 - 11:35 PM

Buster Olney Of ESPN reports that the Mets have an agreement on the structure of a trade of closer Jeurys Familia.

Olney also reports that the deal is not finalized, and Mike Puma of the New York Post cautions that a trade will not be announced tonight. Olney also reports that you can cross the Red Sox, Braves, Astros and Cubs off the teams who have the structured deal for Familia. This is escalating quickly, and we should have word on where Familia is sent -- barring a setback -- relatively soon.
