Dilson Herrera (finger) has begun swinging a bat lightly.

He's also begun throwing. Herrera was unable to grip a bat or baseball just a week ago, so he appears to have made big strides with his fractured right middle finger since then. There remains no timetable for his return.

Travis d'Arnaud (finger) could resume his rehab assignment later this week.

D'Arnaud had been slated to return this week after missing over a month with a fractured right pinkie finger, but he had a setback last week with a bone bruise in his wrist. It sounds like the setback was minor, though, so the young catcher could be back in the Mets' lineup before long.

Lucas Duda is not in the Mets' lineup Tuesday due to stiffness in his right knee.

Duda was hit by a pitch on the knee during Sunday's game. He was able to stay in that contest but obviously is feeling the effects a day later. The good news is that Duda thinks he'll be fine to play on Tuesday. Michael Cuddyer is at first base Monday, with Darrell Ceciliani covering left field.

Mets outfield prospect Michael Conforto tied the game with a triple and scored the game-winning run Sunday for Double-A Binghamton.

The triple was Conforto's first hit since getting promoted on Friday. So far, he's 1-for-5 with four walks in two games for the B-Mets. The 22-year-old hit .283 in St. Lucie with seven homers and 28 RBI. He's only struck out 28 times in 184 at-bats this season. It could be a while before his next call-up but Conforto's minor league career is certainly off to a promising start.

Mets first base prospect Dominic Smith smashed three hits Sunday in a win for High-A St. Lucie.

Smith drove in four runs to cap off an incredible weekend. On Saturday, the 19-year-old belted an 11th-inning walk-off home run, his second blast in 215 career minor league games. Smith's three-hit day Sunday extended his hitting streak to 13 games. The 2013 first-round pick batted .276 with 23 RBI in the month of May.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that he'll use Ruben Tejada as the team's primary third baseman for the time being.

The Mets have been struggling for stability at the position since David Wright went down, and with Tejada swinging a hot stick at the moment he'll get a chance to be in the lineup everyday. He could be worth a look as a middle infield option in NL-only or deeper mixed leagues.
May 31 - 4:13 PM

Jeurys Familia got five outs to pick up his 15th save, closing out the Mets' 4-3 win against the Marlins on Sunday.

Carlos Torres allowed a one-out base runner in the top of the eighth, so manager Terry Collins brought in Familia to preserve the one-run lead. He was able to get through the eighth and ninth innings, moving to 15-for-16 in save chances with a 1.44 ERA and a 30/6 K/BB ratio in 25 innings.
May 31 - 4:11 PM

Bartolo Colon earned his eighth win of the season after limiting the Marlins to three runs over seven innings of work on Sunday.

Colon also helped his own cause with an RBI double to center field, breaking a 1-1 tie in the second inning. He gave up six hits overall, walked none, and struck out two. It was his best start in nearly a month. The effort lowers Colon's ERA to 4.72 with a 1.17 WHIP and a 54/5 K/BB ratio in 68 2/3 innings. He'll look for his ninth win in a road start versus the Diamondbacks.
May 31 - 4:09 PM

Wilmer Flores had one hit in four at-bats, a solo home run, as the Mets topped the Marlins on Sunday to avoid a sweep.

Flores extended the Mets' lead to 3-1 with his third-inning blast off of David Phelps, his eighth of the season. He is tied with Jhonny Peralta for the most home runs hit by a shortstop to this point in the season with eight. Flores is hitting .244/.273/.421 with 22 RBI.
May 31 - 4:01 PM

Ruben Tejada finished 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's win against the Marlins.

Tejada broke a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the seventh inning with an RBI double to left-center. The three-game set against the Marlins, in which he went 5-for-13, rejuvenated Tejada's bat, raising his OPS from .641 to .724. He still doesn't have any fantasy value, however.
May 31 - 3:58 PM

Kevin Plawecki is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

It's simply a routine day off. Anthony Recker is behind the dish Sunday in Plawecki's place.
May 31 - 10:49 AM

Michael Cuddyer is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

It appears he's just getting a breather. John Mayberry is in left field in Cuddyer's place.
May 31 - 10:20 AM

Ruben Tejada went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

Tejada stepped up against Tom Koehler in the fourth with the bases loaded. He proceeded to unload them, doubling to center to tie the game at 5-5. The Mets wouldn't find much traction moving forward, though, ultimately losing 9-5 to the Marlins. Tejada is hitting .245/.344/.377 with a homer and seven RBI over 53 at-bats this season. He's not a relevant fantasy piece.
May 30 - 7:32 PM

Jonathan Niese struggled in Saturday's loss to the Marlins, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits over four innings.

Niese struck out three without walking a batter. After serving up a two-run double to Donovan Solano in the second inning, he surrendered a long solo home run to Giancarlo Stanton in the third and a slightly less majestic two-run shot to J.T. Realmuto in the fourth. The poor start was nothing new for Niese, who has now given up 23 runs in his last 20 innings. He'll take a 4.42 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 37/17 K/BB over 57 innings into his next start, a road outing against the Diamondbacks next Friday.
May 30 - 7:24 PM

Matt Harvey took the loss Friday after giving up four runs over eight innings against the Marlins.

The big blow was a three-run homer by Justin Bour in the fourth inning. Harvey was pretty dominant otherwise, allowing a total of six hits and one walk while striking out a season-high 11 batters. He's now winless over his last five starts and will bring a 3.11 ERA into a start against the Diamondbacks on the road next week.
