Steven Matz fired 7 2/3 shutout innings Wednesday in the Mets' 8-0 blanking of the Braves.

Matz didn't walk a batter, gave up just two hits -- both singles -- and struck out eight. The young left-hander struggled in his 2016 debut April 11 against the Marlins, but he has been absolutely sensational since. Matz will carry a 2.83 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Dodgers. He also boasts a 30/7 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings.

Mets 2B prospect Dilson Herrera slugged two homers Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Las Vegas.

He plated five of the team's season-high 15 runs. Herrera, who had never homered twice in a game before Tuesday, needed a double to complete the cycle. The 22-year-old has five multi-hit games in his last 10 contests. Over that span, he's raised his average from .231 to .288. Herrera made 31 appearances for the Mets last year, hitting .211 with three homers and six RBI.

Mets 1B prospect Dominic Smith matched a career-high with four RBI Tuesday in a win for Double-A Binghamton.

The 20-year-old collected his third home run of the season as Binghamton cruised to a 13-2 win over Portland. Smith's last four-RBI game came on May 31, 2015 while playing for High-A St. Lucie. He's hit a ridiculous .349 over his last 11 games after batting just .171 over his first 11 contests. Smith is now second in the Eastern League with 20 RBI. The former first-round pick led the Florida State League with 79 RBI in 2015.

David Wright is out Wednesday versus the Braves.

It's just a routine day of maintenance for the veteran third baseman. Wilmer Flores will draw the start at the hot corner and bat seventh Wednesday afternoon against Atlanta right-hander Jhoulys Chacin.
May 4 - 10:13 AM

Matt Harvey was charged with three runs over 5 2/3 frames in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

Harvey failed to hold down the Braves' weak offense, surrendering eight hits -- including Mallex Smith's first major league homer -- while walking two and striking out just four. The right-hander still hasn't gone more than six innings this season, and only two of his six starts have been of the "quality" variety. He also has a disappointing 25/11 K/BB ratio over 34 innings. Harvey will at least get the Padres in San Diego this weekend as he tries to get on track.

Travis d'Arnaud is still resting and receiving treatment on his strained right rotator cuff.

He has not resumed throwing and there's no timetable for that yet. "I can't predict that," manager Terry Collins said Tuesday. "A lot of times you come in the morning, and if he's feeling good a couple days in a row, they might start getting him on a throwing program. But right now, he's still just getting treatment." This absence for d'Arnaud might last through most or all of May.

Matt Harvey has been battling an illness but will make his scheduled start Tuesday versus the Braves.

Harvey will get fluids before the game. He's obviously going to be pitching at less than 100 percent in the home start against Atlanta, but it's such a juicy matchup that he remains a must-play in all fantasy formats.
May 3 - 4:08 PM

Bartolo Colon held the feeble Braves bats at bay Monday, whiffing seven over eight shutout frames in a 4-1 victory.

Colon gave up seven hits, but five of them were singles and he didn't issue any walks. He had thrown only 99 pitches through his eight innings, but Mets manager Terry Collins elected to pull Colon and get closer Jeurys Familia some work. Slated to turn 43 later this month, Colon sports a 2.56 ERA and 28/3 K/BB ratio over 31 2/3 frames. He'll take on the Padres in San Diego this weekend.
May 2 - 10:57 PM

Lucas Duda slugged his fifth home run of the season in Monday's win over the Braves.

Duda's solo blast in the first inning followed David Wright's solo shot and Yoenis Cespedes' two-run blast. He also had a walk on the night. Duda has just a .256 average and .300 on-base percentage so far, but he's provided power with a .476 slugging percentage and five bombs.
May 2 - 10:53 PM

David Wright singled and smacked a solo homer in Monday's win over the Braves.

The Mets jumped on Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz for four runs on a trio of home runs in the top of the first inning, with Lucas Duda and Yoenis Cespedes also going deep. Wright had a walk on the night, as well, reaching base three times. Wright has had a decent number of off days as the Mets keep an eye on his back issue, but he's been pretty productive with a .266/.383/.468 batting line and three homers.
May 2 - 10:43 PM

Noah Syndergaard surrendered four runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Syndergaard fanned six and walked two. It wasn't a poor outing by any stretch of the imagination, but a three-run fourth inning proved to be his downfall. He at least kept the pitch count respectable, exiting stage left after tossing 98 pitches. The 23-year-old right-hander holds a 2.51 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 44/6 K/BB ratio across 32 1/3 innings (five starts). Prior to Sunday's contest, Syndergaard had pitched at least six innings in every outing. He will attempt to reach that plateau once more in a road duel with the Padres next time he takes to the mound.

Curtis Granderson is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

Lucas Duda and Asdrubal Cabrera are also on the bench against Giants southpaw Madison Bumgarner. The Mets have Juan Lagares in right field, Eric Campbell at first base and Wilmer Flores at shortstop.

Jacob deGrom survived a hectic third inning to pick up his third win of the season Saturday against the Giants.

He scattered two hits and three runs (all unearned) over six innings of work. DeGrom didn’t allow a walk in his first two starts but he handed out four free passes Saturday including one with the bases loaded. His fastball touched 95 mph at one point but mostly sat in the low 90s. DeGrom unraveled in the third after a throwing error by Wilmer Flores but he buckled down and threw zeros the rest of the way. It was a trying month for deGrom both personally and physically, but he still managed to go undefeated with a 1.02 ERA in three starts. The long-haired right-hander will go to work again Thursday in San Diego.
Apr 30 - 7:41 PM

Michael Conforto clobbered his fourth home run of the season Saturday in the Mets’ 6-5 victory over the Giants.

Conforto contributed three hits while raising his average to a super-human .365. He finished a triple shy of the cycle. Giants starter Matt Cain simply had no answer for Conforto, getting beat in all three of their encounters. Conforto began 2015 in High-A and finished the year in the major leagues. Now he might be the Mets’ best hitter. His hot bat is a big reason why the Mets have won eight in a row.
Apr 30 - 7:38 PM

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.
