Curtis Granderson went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

Nobody on the Mets managed to do much of anything against a locked-in Jake Arrieta, but Granderson at least prevented the shutout. His double in the third inning would score starter Jacob deGrom. And that, as they say, was that. A recent hot streak has helped push the Grandyman's slash-line for the season to .254/.349/.436 with 13 homers and 28 RBI.

Lucas Duda went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

Duda's played absolutely horrifically over the last month. While he's launched 10 homers and driven in 33, nine of those homers and 25 of those RBI were compiled during April and May. June was an unqualified disaster for the slugger, who hit just .187/.312/.264 over 91 at-bats. He's too good a hitter to remain in that trough forever, but there are few current signs that a hot streak is around the corner.

Jacob deGrom was not on his game in Thursday's loss to the Cubs, lasting just 5 1/3 innings and allowing four runs (three earned) over 5 1/3 innings.

Well that was somewhat unexpected. It's not that deGrom pitched horribly--the Cubs scored solitary runs in the first and fifth innings before dropping in two more in the sixth. He just pitched flatly, as evidenced by the strikeout magician's mere two K's on the day. The Cubs pecked deGrom to death with seven hits. We'll chalk this loss up to a meaningless blip on the radar, as the right-hander's season numbers remain superb. He's currently pitching to a 2.30 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 102/20 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings. A Wednesday afternoon road start against the Giants is up next on the schedule as he tries to get back on a roll.

Michael Cuddyer (knee) remained out of the Mets' lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

He got an injection Wednesday and may need a few days to recover. Manager Terry Collins said Cuddyer could require a trip to the disabled list if he doesn't improve in the next three days. Eric Campbell and John Mayberry would split time in left field if Cuddyer faces a lengthy absence.
Jul 2 - 1:30 PM

Bartolo Colon shut out the Cubs for seven innings, striking out eight, in a no-decision Wednesday.

It's the first time this season that Colon has gone without allowing a run. It's also the first time in 16 starts that he's gotten a no-decision. He's 9-6 with a 4.55 ERA.

Lucas Duda went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Duda is hitting .177 with one homer in 26 games since the beginning of June. The Mets badly need him to recapture his April and May form if they're going to have any sort of offense at all.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports David Wright (back) is "picking up activity," but there remains no timetable for his return.

Specifically, Rubin said it's still unclear whether "picking up activity" means Wright will run or take grounders next week. Two weeks ago Mets general manager Sandy Alderson pinpointed the All-Star break as the hope for Wright's return, but the break draws ever nearer without Wright making any tangible progress. Sometime shortly after the All-Star break may be a better guess at this point.

Mets OF prospect Michael Conforto collected three hits in Tuesday's win for Double-A Binghamton.

He crushed a two-run homer in the fifth inning, giving him three in 28 games since his call-up. He's hit .333 for Binghamton, which is actually 50 points higher than he batted at High-A St. Lucie earlier this year. The 22-year-old has put together a .376 on base percentage over 327 plate appearances at two minor league levels this season.

Michael Cuddyer (knee) isn't expected to require a trip to the disabled list.

Cuddyer had to leave Tuesday's game with a left knee injury, but an MRI apparently didn't show any serious damage. The Mets think he'll only have to sit out a few days.
Jul 1 - 3:44 PM

Michael Cuddyer admitted that he was "definitely concerned" about the left knee injury that forced him from Tuesday's game versus the Cubs.

Cuddyer said he first felt pain in the knee while running to first base after his first plate appearance, but he wasn't removed until the seventh. The veteran outfielder will undergo an MRI on Wednesday to determine the extent of the damage, but it sounds like a trip to the disabled list could be in the offing.

Daniel Murphy finished 1-for-4 with a double in his return to the Mets on Tuesday.

Murphy, playing his first game since June 4, had one of the Mets' three hits on the evening. The double was his 15th in 56 games played this year. Murphy is hitting .282/.333/.416 overall.

Michael Cuddyer will undergo an MRI on his left knee Wednesday.

Cuddyer left Tuesday's game against the Cubs after injuring the knee. It's unclear how worried the Mets are about the outfielder at this point, but the fact that he's having the MRI certainly creates some cause for concern.
Jun 30 - 9:46 PM

Jon Niese was on the wrong end of a low-scoring affair Tuesday, taking the loss despite allowing one run over seven innings against the Cubs.

Niese allowed a lone run on four hits while also walking four on the evening. The lefty struck out five in the losing effort. It has become a bit of a pattern for Niese, who fell to 3-8 despite a decent 3.90 ERA. Niese still hasn't won since May 9, but he'll look to correct that Sunday at the Dodgers.
Jun 30 - 9:38 PM

Michael Cuddyer left Tuesday's game versus the Cubs with a sore left knee.

Cuddyer didn't suffer an obvious injury, so it's unclear how he was hurt. The Mets should have more on the veteran outfielder's status later Tuesday.
Jun 30 - 8:57 PM

Mets pitching prospect John Gant fanned 10 hitters over eight shutout frames Monday for High-A St. Lucie.

After a subpar showing in Binghamton earlier this year, Gant has looked like a completely different pitcher in six outings for St. Lucie. He's punched out 48 hitters in that span with a stunning 1.79 ERA. The 22-year-old is ready for another shot at Double-A. Expect a promotion in the near future.
