Michael Conforto continued to rake as he went 2-for-3 with a run scored, an RBI and two walks in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.

He delivered a run-scoring single in the fourth inning that gave the Mets a 5-1 lead that would soon be blown by their pitching staff. Conforto began the season without an everyday starting role but has forced himself into the lineup by batting .341/.437/.712 with 13 homers, 35 runs scored and 32 RBI in 41 games. He hasn't shown any signs of cooling off any time soon.

Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored in a loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

He stroked a base-loaded double to plate three runs in the third inning, then came around to score on a Curtis Granderson single. He also worked a walk in the ballgame. The 25-year-old Flores now has a .307 batting average with three home runs and 14 RBI in 91 plate appearances.
May 25 - 12:21 AM

Robert Gsellman allowed three runs in six innings and did not get a decision against the Padres on Wednesday.

Yangervis Solarte did all the damage, driving in one run in the third inning and two more in the fifth. Gsellman surrendered six hits and one walk while fanning three batters in the quality start. The Mets skipped his last start but gave him another chance today. He 2-3 record remains unchanged to go with a 6.45 ERA in 10 games, including seven starts. He has 33 strikeouts and 15 walks in 44 2/3 innings.

Mets activated C Travis d'Arnaud from the 10-day disabled list.

A bone bruise on his right wrist sidelined d'Arnaud in early May. With his activation, he will be available to pinch-hit during Wednesday's game against the Padres -- and is expected to start on Thursday. Prior to going down injured, the backstop was hitting .203/.288/.475 with four homers and 16 RBI across 22 games played.

Mets placed LHP Tommy Milone on the 10-day disabled list with a left knee sprain.

A timetable for Milone's return has not yet been laid out, but should clarify as he moves further away from the initial injury. It is not clear at this juncture when he sustained the knee sprain. In the short term, Josh Smoker or Rafael Montero will be starting in his place against the Pirates on Saturday.
May 24 - 5:32 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) is expected to be activated from the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game against the Padres.

While Rene Rivera will be drawing the start at catcher on Wednesday, d'Arnaud's imminent activation would make him available as a pinch-hitting option. He is expected to be in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale vs. the Padres.
May 24 - 5:26 PM

Tommy Milone will not make his scheduled Saturday start against the Pirates due to an knee injury.

It is not quite clear when Milone injured his knee, but he was crushed to the tune of eight runs by the Angels in his start on Sunday. Josh Smoker is looking like a probable starter for Saturday, now, with Rafael Montero another possible option.

Jay Bruce - OF - Mets

Jay Bruce (back) is absent from the Mets' starting lineup on Wednesday versus the Padres.

Bruce made an early exit Tuesday night after experiencing stiffness in his back. He told reporters Wednesday that it's nothing serious.
May 24 - 3:34 PM

Jose Reyes (ribs) went 1-for-5 with a run scored in his return to the Mets' lineup Tuesday.

Reyes was scratched from Sunday's series finale against the Angels due to tightness on the left side of his rib cage. It apparently wasn't anything serious.
May 24 - 8:43 AM

Michael Conforto went 3-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in the Mets' 9-3 victory over the Padres on Tuesday.

We thought the Mets made the wrong choice between Conforto and Jay Bruce this spring. It turns out that they're really fortunate to have both. Conforto now has 13 homers, 31 RBI and 34 runs scored in just 129 at-bats. HIs OPS stands at 1.138. The Mets' franchise record for OPS in a season is 1.024, established by Mike Piazza in 1998.
May 23 - 10:48 PM

Matt Harvey won for the first time since April 11 after allowing two runs over five innings Tuesday against the Padres.

Harvey was given the wide-open layup in this one, as the Mets got him seven runs in the bottom of the first. It still wasn't easy for Harvey; he ended up walking four and throwing 103 pitches in five innings. His old form isn't coming back that quickly.
May 23 - 10:45 PM

Lucas Duda finished 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI against the Padres on Tuesday.

Duda had been just 4-for-26 with no RBI in nine games since returning from the disabled list. Maybe this one will get him started.

Jay Bruce - OF - Mets

Jay Bruce left Tuesday's game against the Padres due to back tightness.

Bruce was 1-for-3 with a run scored and two strikeouts before getting replaced in the sixth inning by Juan Lagares. It's probably going to be a day-to-day thing.
May 23 - 9:09 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) will head out on a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the Mets.

There was some thought that he might be allowed to skip that step, but the Mets are wise to slow-play this given that Cespedes has been on the shelf since late April. He's nearing the end of a running program and will then be cleared for minor league games. It's possible he could be ready for activation early next week.
May 23 - 4:08 PM

Mets recalled LHP Josh Smoker from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Smoker will rejoin the Mets' bullpen with Hansel Robles headed to the minors. The southpaw owns a 7.88 ERA and 20/10 K/BB ratio over 16 innings with the big club this season.
