Steven Matz (lat) threw on flat ground Monday.

It's the first time he's done any throwing since he was diagnosed with a partially torn left lat muscle nearly four weeks ago. Obviously, the Mets will proceed cautiously with Matz, building him back up slowly. There's no timetable for his return, but Monday was a nice step.

Lucas Duda continued his home run barrage on Sunday, blasting a two-run homer off Jordan Zimmermann in Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Nationals.

With the victory, the Mets completed their sweep of the three-game weekend series against the Nationals and pulled even with their division rival for the top spot in the National League East. Duda has been on an absolute tear at the plate in recent days, blasting nine home runs and driving home 12 runs in his last eight ballgames. He finished the night 2-for-4 and is now hitting .249/.348/.489 with 21 homers and 50 RBI on the season.

Curtis Granderson blasted his 17th home run of the season as the Mets completed their three-game sweep of the Nationals on Sunday.

Granderson's two-run blast off Jordan Zimmermann got the Mets on the board in the third inning. He would immediately be followed by a solo shot from teammate Daniel Murphy, a single from Yoenis Cespedes and a two-run bomb off the bat of Lucas Duda to provide the extent of the Mets offense. Granderson has quietly had a very strong season atop the Mets lineup, slashing .254/.347/.443 with 17 long balls and 38 RBI.

Tyler Clippard earned his first save as a member of the Mets on Sunday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a three-run advantage.

He allowed a one-out single to Jayson Werth, but no damage would come from it. The veteran right-hander now sports a 2.55 ERA and 39/23 K/BB ratio over 42 1/3 innings on the season while successfully converting 19 of his 23 save chances.
Aug 2 - 10:57 PM

Noah Syndergaard delivered another dominant effort in Sunday's win over the Nationals, allowing two runs on seven hits over eight strong innings.

He racked up nine strikeouts on the impressive evening without issuing a walk. The only damage against him came on a pair of solo home runs, one by Anthony Rendon in the first inning and the other from Yunel Escobar in the sixth. The 22-year-old now boasts a 2.66 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 100/20 K/BB ratio over 94 2/3 innings on the season. He'll look to continue his dominance on Saturday when he takes on the Rays in Tampa Bay.
Aug 2 - 10:54 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins expects Jeurys Familia to be available on Sunday.

The All-Star right-hander has worked three days in a row, but it looks to be all hands on deck for a division showdown against the Nationals. He'll throw before the game to test his arm, and if he is unable to go, Tyler Clippard would close for the Mets.

Mets recalled OF Michael Conforto from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Conforto was just sent back down to the minor leagues on Saturday to make room on the active roster for Yoenis Cespedes. The 22-year-old is hitting .211 (4-for-19) with no homers and three RBI through his first six games in the big leagues.
Aug 2 - 4:41 PM

Mets placed OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis on the 15-day disabled list due to a pinched nerve in his back.

In a corresponding move, Michael Conforto has been recalled from Triple-A. In 54 games between the Mets and Angels this season, Nieuwenhuis is hitting just .188/.261/.356 with three homers and 13 RBI.
Aug 2 - 4:40 PM

Erik Goeddel (elbow) began a minor league rehab assignment with High-A St. Luice on Sunday.

Goeddel has been on the shelf since June 12 with a strained right elbow. Prior to his injury, he had registered a 1.96 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 23/7 K/BB ratio over 23 innings with the Mets.
Aug 2 - 4:18 PM

Lucas Duda had a huge impact on Saturday's 3-2 win over the Nationals, hitting a pair of solo home runs and a go-ahead RBI double.

The Mets brought Yoenis Cespedes over at the trade deadline to bolster a shoddy offense, but on Saturday, Duda did it all on his own. He launched a solo home run against Nationals starter Joe Ross in the fourth inning, then repeated the feat in the seventh. That second homer tied the game at 2-2. A frame later, he smacked an RBI double off Nationals reliever Matt Thornton to put the Mets up 3-2. This would stand as the final. Duda has produced multi-homer efforts in three of his last seven games to help boost his slash to .246/.347/.481 with 20 home runs and 48 RBI.
Aug 1 - 10:27 PM

Jacob deGrom pitched well in earning a no-decision against the Nationals on Saturday, yielding two runs on six hits over six innings.

Both runs against deGrom came home in the very first inning, when Ian Desmond nicked him for a two-run single. The Nationals wouldn't score again, but the Met offense struggled against Joe Ross and deGrom was unable to earn the victory despite a nice pitching performance. The 27-year-old right-hander holds some impressive numbers this season, including a 2.09 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 135/24 K/BB ratio in 133 1/3 innings. Up next on his schedule, a road date with the Rays.
Aug 1 - 10:14 PM

Mets optioned OF Michael Conforto to Triple-A Las Vegas.

New York sent him down to make room for Yoenis Cespedes. Conforto got off to a good start (4-for-7 in his first two games), but went hitless over his last four contests. The 22-year-old should have plenty more chances to make an impact in the big leagues, but for now, he's better off getting regular at-bats in Triple-A.
Aug 1 - 6:49 PM

David Wright (back) is close to beginning a minor league rehab assignment.

Wright will move his rehab to the team's minor league facility in St. Lucie when the Mets begin their six-game road trip next week. The seven-time All-Star has been sidelined by spinal stenosis since April 14. Daniel Murphy has been plugging away at third base in Wright's absence.

Wilmer Flores clubbed a walk-off homer in the 12th inning to give the Mets a 2-1 win over the Nationals on Friday.

You couldn't write it up any better. Flores, who cried on the field Wednesday night after believing that he had been traded to the Brewers, drove in both runs for the Mets on Friday night and was the most popular person at Citi Field. After hitting an RBI single in the fourth inning, he took Felipe Rivero deep to lead off the bottom of the 12th to end it. It was a feel-good moment for Flores and for the Mets, who are two games back of the Nationals in the NL East.
Aug 1 - 12:05 AM

Matt Harvey was handed a no-decision Friday against the Nationals after allowing one run over 7 2/3 innings.

Harvey was dominant for most of the night, retiring the first 16 batters he faced before Jose Lobaton broke things up with a one-out single in the top of the sixth. He held the Nationals scoreless until a game-tying RBI single from Yunel Escobar with two outs in the eighth, which turned out to be his final batter of the night. While he couldn't finish it off, it was another impressive start. He'll bring a 3.05 ERA into a start against the Marlins on the road next week.
