Nolan Reimold has retired from his playing career.

Reimold was playing with the independent Long Island Ducks where he batted .238/.359/.397 with two home runs and seven RBI over 19 games. The 33-year-old played almost his entire career with the Orioles and showed some promise early on before injuries got in the way. He walks away with a .246/.323/.422 batting line and 56 home runs over 480 games.

Jameson Taillon (cancer) struck out six batters over three scoreless innings Sunday in his first rehab start with Double-A Altoona.

Taillon underwent surgery earlier this month to treat testicular cancer, but he was able to quickly return to game action. He was very sharp in his first rehab start, allowing just one hit and one walk while throwing 29 out of 47 pitches for strikes. Taillon should be ready to rejoin the Pirates' soon, but manager Clint Hurdle doesn't want to rush him. "We don't have expectations, and we want to take it slow with him so he doesn't feel any unneeded urgency," said Hurdle. "He needs to get right when he's right ... this is uncharted territory."

Steven Matz (elbow) spun five perfect innings Sunday in his latest rehab start with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Matz fanned eight and walked none while throwing 50 out of 73 pitches for strikes. It was a very encouraging performance as he works his way back from a flexor strain which has kept him sidelined all season. The southpaw could be cleared to join the Mets' rotation as soon as this weekend against the Pirates at home.

Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Mets topped the Pirates 7-2 in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

Granderson also scored a run in the contest. His run-scoring single in the sixth inning plated Asdrubal Cabrera and increased the Mets' advantage to 6-1. While he had struggled mightily out of the leadoff spot entering play on Sunday, perhaps this was exactly the type of game Granderson needed to get back on track. He's now hitting .191/.265/.364 with four homers and 19 RBI.

Gregory Polanco crushed his third home run of the season as the Pirates fell to the Mets on Sunday night.

His solo shot in the second inning was the only offense that the Pirates could muster against Mets' starter Matt Harvey. He also singled and came around to score the club's other run in the eighth inning. With his 2-for-4 effort, Polanco is now slashing .265/.340/.417 with three homers and 11 RBI on the season.

Lucas Duda launched his seventh home run of the season on Sunday as the Mets trounced the Pirates 7-2 in Pittsburgh.

It was his lone hit in five at-bats on the night, but he certainly was able to make it count with a solo shot in the seventh inning that increased the Mets' advantage to 7-1. He's quietly having a nice season in the middle of the Mets' lineup, slashing .264/.396/.592 with seven homers and 16 RBI in 28 games.

Jay Bruce - OF - Mets

Jay Bruce went 3-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI as the Mets beat the Pirates on Sunday.

Bruce came through with a two-run double in the fifth inning, increasing the Mets' early lead to 5-1. With the three-hit attack, Bruce is now slashing .258/.333/.528 with 12 long balls and 34 RBI.

Matt Harvey delivered one of his finest starts of the 2017 season on Sunday, allowing just one run on six hits over six innings in a victory over the Pirates.

The right-hander walked two and struck out four on the evening. The only damage he allowed was a solo homer off the bat of Gregory Polanco in the second inning. In what has been an inconsistent and drama-filled season to date, perhaps this is the type of start Harvey needed to get back on track. He'll bring a 4.95 ERA and 1.46 WHIP into a rematch against these same Pirates at home on Friday.
