David Wright is scheduled to receive a day of rest on Saturday against the Giants.

The Mets will continue to give their oft-injured third baseman regular rest this season in an effort to keep him healthy and on the field for the majority of the season. Expect to see Wilmer Flores in the lineup at the hot corner on Saturday.

Yoenis Cespedes had a two-run single and a grand slam in the third inning Friday as the Mets thrashed the Giants 13-1.

It was his first start in a week and he announced his return to the lineup with authority. His grand slam was the exclamation point on a team record 12-run third inning for New York. The six RBI frame from Cespedes also set a team record. The 30-year-old has homered in four out of his last five games and is batting .313/.380/.719 with seven home runs and 23 RBI overall.
Apr 29 - 10:37 PM

Steven Matz spun six scoreless innings in Friday’s blowout win over the Giants.

Matz matched his career-high with 110 pitches. He wasn’t exactly at his best, allowing seven hits and three walks, but he managed to keep the Giants off the board while notching four strikeouts. The southpaw was rocked in his season debut, but he has a 0.93 ERA over his last three starts. He’ll get an appealing assignment against the light-hitting Braves next time out.
Apr 29 - 10:35 PM

Michael Conforto went 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in Friday’s blowout win over the Giants.

Conforto got the Mets’ 12-run third inning started with an RBI single and later delivered another RBI single in the frame. The 23-year-old has been on fire since moving to the No. 3 spot earlier this month, batting .380 (19-for-50) with three home runs and 12 RBI. The Mets have now won seven straight.
Apr 29 - 10:34 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera was 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored Friday against the Giants.

Cabrera contributed to the Mets’ huge third inning with a two-run double. We haven’t seen much power from him thus far, as he has just one home run through 21 games, but he has a strong .312/.369/.416 batting line. The 30-year-old has averaged 15 home runs per season since 2012, so it’s just a matter of time before we see some more pop.
Apr 29 - 10:34 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (leg) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

It's his first start in a week due to a bruised thigh, although he had a big pinch-hit homer on Wednesday. Cespedes is batting .300/.373/.683 with six homers and 17 RBI this month.
Apr 29 - 3:16 PM

Addison Reed handled a scoreless ninth inning for the Mets on Wednesday, slamming the door on the Reds to secure a 5-2 win.

The Mets looked to a different closer on Wednesday because Jeurys Familia had thrown in four of the last five days, including the past three days. Reed ultimately navigated an easy ninth inning. He lowered his ERA to 2.25 and now has 15 strikeouts in just 12 innings of work. His trade to the Mets has seemingly re-ignited his career.
Apr 27 - 11:26 PM

Alejandro De Aza went 1-for-3 with two walks and a stolen bases in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

De Aza jumpstarted the Mets in the lead-off role, getting on base three times and scoring twice. He also stole a base. The Mets entered the game ranked 29th in the league in stolen bases, so they've been selective when it comes to the run game. De Aza's second stolen base was only the Mets' fifth of the year. He is now hitting .207/.281/.345 in 32 plate appearances.
Apr 27 - 11:18 PM

Neil Walker enjoyed a big night at the plate in Wednesday's win over the Reds, clobbering his ninth homer of the year and getting on base three times.

Walker now has nine homers in 83 plate appearances. He only had seven homers in the entire first half a year ago with Pittsburg. It's perhaps worth noting that Walker had actually been quite bad at Citi Field, hitting just .226/.226/.323 in his first eight home games. It's nice to see the power show up at his home ballpark for the second time this homestand, as he was better on the road in 2015, too. The Mets' second baseman now has a .300/.325/.638 slash line with 12 runs scored and 16 runs batted in.
Apr 27 - 11:06 PM

Matt Harvey struck out seven and allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk over six innings of work in Wednesday night’s win over the Reds.

Harvey’s stat line belies a difficult night on the mound. His stuff was fine for the most part -- throwing in the mid-90s with his heater and touching 89-90 mph with his slider -- but his little magic act to escape a bases-loaded jam in the third inning saved his night. The strikeouts were finally there, which increased his still-disappointing strikeout rate to 6.67 K/9, but Harvey will need to string together a few quality starts before the preseason hype returns. He now owns a 4.76 ERA in 28 1/3 innings with 34 hits allowed.
Apr 27 - 10:55 PM

The Mets expect Yoenis Cespedes (leg) to return to the lineup for this weekend's series with the Giants.

Cespedes won't play in Wednesday's contest against the Reds and the Mets have an off day on Thursday, making Friday the date to circle on the calendar for his return. A bruise on the right thigh has been bothering the slugger for the last few weeks. He initially suffered the injury while diving for a ball earlier in April.
Apr 27 - 4:13 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (leg) is out of the Mets' starting lineup again on Wednesday versus the Reds.

Cespedes delivered a pinch-hit three-run homer in Tuesday's dramatic win over Cincinnati and looked plenty healthy doing it, but Mets manager Terry Collins will get his $27.5 million outfielder another day of rest. He's been bothered by a nagging bruise on his right thigh for the last few weeks. Michael Conforto is in left field, Juan Lagares is in center field, and Alejandro De Aza is in right field on Wednesday night against Reds right-hander Jon Moscot.
Apr 27 - 3:08 PM

Curtis Granderson is out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

It's just a day of routine maintenance for the veteran outfielder. Michael Conforto is in left field, Juan Lagares is in center, and Alejandro De Aza is in right. De Aza will also lead off versus Reds righty Jon Moscot.
Apr 27 - 3:05 PM

Mets SS prospect Amed Rosario finished a double shy of the cycle Tuesday in a win for High-A Port St. Lucie.

He plated four of the Mets' 10 runs while pushing his season total to 13 RBI. Eight of those RBI have come in his last three games. The 20-year-old has really come into his own this year. He leads the Florida State League with five triples and ranks second in slugging percentage (.590) behind Clearwater's Mitch Walding (.600). Rosario is also second on the team with five stolen bases. He's been caught twice.

Bartolo Colon wasn't great but escaped with a no-decision Tuesday, permitting three runs over five frames in a 4-3 win over the Reds.

Colon gave up eight hits -- including a home run -- while walking one and striking out four. It was the rotund right-hander's shortest start of the season to this point, although he had pitched well prior to tonight and still boasts a 3.42 ERA and 21/3 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings. He'll face the Braves and Padres next week.
