Dillon Gee (groin) allowed three runs -- two earned -- over 6 1/3 innings in his final rehab start with Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday.

Gee allowed just five hits while walking two and striking out four in the outing. He'll rejoin the Mets' rotation next week in San Diego. The club will operate with a six-man rotation for now, meaning nobody will be displaced when Gee returns.

Noah Syndergaard pitched 7 1/3 scoreless innings and helped his own cause with a solo home run, earning the win as the Mets completed a sweep of the Phillies with a 7-0 victory on Wednesday.

Syndergaard scattered six hits -- all singles -- while issuing no walks and striking out six. His home run came in the fourth inning off of Sean O'Sullivan, pushing the Mets' lead to 5-0 at the time. The young right-hander has four starts under his belt, sporting a 2.55 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP, and a 22/5 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings. Syndergaard will face the Padres at Petco Park next.

Michael Cuddyer went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Mets complete a sweep of the Phillies on Wednesday.

Cuddyer pushed the Mets' lead to 4-0 in the third inning, ripping a two-run shot off of Sean O'Sullivan. He had also homered in the series opener against the Phillies. The 36-year-old hasn't looked like the hitter who hit over .330 in consecutive years in 2013-14 with the Rockies. He's batting .262/.331/.396 with five home runs and 22 RBI thus far.
May 27 - 3:53 PM

Lucas Duda hit a pair of solo home runs and a double in a 3-for-4 effort Wednesday as the Mets topped the Phillies.

Duda started the scoring in the first inning with a solo shot off of Sean O'Sullivan. He victimized O'Sullivan again in the fifth with another solo blast, the last of four home runs the Mets hit against the Phillies' right-hander. Duda also had a multi-homer game on May 21, giving him five in his last six games. He has eight total on the season along with 23 RBI and a .305/.400/.539 batting line.

Mets pitching prospect Steven Matz scattered three hits over seven shutout innings Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Matz, who also clubbed two hits in the victory, now leads all minor league pitchers with 68 strikeouts. Tuesday was one of his most efficient outings as Matz needed just 77 pitches to dispose of Colorado Springs. The 23-year-old owns the second-lowest ERA (1.99) in the Pacific Coast League and the third-lowest WHIP (1.04). He's working hard to improve his changeup. The 6'2" left-hander already offers a plus fastball and a decent breaking pitch.

Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen indicated Wednesday that Vic Black (neck, shoulder) is ready to be activated from the disabled list.

It appears there's no definitive date on when it will happen, though. Black began the season on the DL with shoulder tendinitis before suffering a herniated disk in his neck.

Jacob deGrom pitched well on Tuesday, yielding two runs in 7 1/3 innings, but got a no-decision as the Mets needed 10 innings to pull out a 5-4 win against the Phillies on Tuesday.

DeGrom was pitching a shutout, but the Phillies keyed back-to-back one-out singles against him in the eighth inning to chase him from the game. Reliever Hansel Robles came in and allowed both of deGrom's runners to score and was on the hook for two more as the Mets fell behind 4-3. DeGrom allowed only six hits without issuing a walk and striking out nine. He owns a terrific 2.71 ERA with a 1.08 WHIP and a 63/13 K/BB ratio in 63 innings. A road start with the Padres awaits him.

Wilmer Flores knocked in the tying and game-winning runs as the Mets walked off winners in 10 innings versus the Phillies on Tuesday.

Flores, who went 1-for-4 on the night, tied the game at 4-4 with an eighth-inning sacrifice fly against Ken Giles. In the 10th inning, he came to the plate with runners on the corners and two out. He lifted an Elvis Araujo offering into left field to bring in the winning run. Flores has hit for decent power but otherwise has been lackluster, batting .252/.284/.429 with seven home runs and 21 RBI.

Matt Harvey (arm) threw a bullpen session Tuesday.

And the reports were good. Mets manager Terry Collins suggested Sunday that the ace right-hander is going through a period of "dead arm," but that's a pretty common thing for pitchers. Harvey, who allowed seven runs in four innings Saturday in the Mets' loss to the Pirates, is a pretty good bet to bounce back Friday versus the Marlins.
May 26 - 4:28 PM

Rafael Montero (shoulder) played catch Tuesday and plans to get back on a mound Wednesday.

Montero has been bothered by discomfort in his right rotator cuff since mid-April, but tests have ruled out anything serious and he's now beginning to make some progress after a significant shutdown period. The young right-hander could become an option for the Mets at some point in late June or early July.
May 26 - 4:07 PM

Travis d’Arnaud (finger) caught five innings Tuesday in an extended spring training game.

D'Arnaud, out since April 20 with a fractured right pinkie finger, also went 1-for-3 with a run scored and reached on a catcher's interference. The hope is that he'll be ready to join Triple-A Las Vegas for an official rehab assignment within the next few days. This would put him on pace to join the Mets at some point next week.
May 26 - 3:46 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (finger) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as June 1.

That's a best-case scenario, while Mets general manager Sandy Alderson thinks the June 4-7 series versus the Diamondbacks might be a more realistic target. D'Arnaud will play five innings in an extended spring training game on Tuesday before then beginning a rehab assignment at High-A St. Lucie. He's been sidelined since April 20 with a fracture of his right little finger.

Bartolo Colon held the Phillies to three runs in six innings Monday in the Mets' 6-3 victory.

Colon walked two and gave up six hits, but only one of those hits -- a Freddy Galvis double -- went for extra bases. Colon fanned six Philadelphia hitters and is now 7-3 with a 4.82 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 52/5 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings this season. The big man remains a strong matchup-to-matchup fantasy starter, and he has a pretty good one at home against the Rockies on Sunday.
May 25 - 4:32 PM

Wilmer Flores cranked his seventh home run of the season Monday in the Mets' defeat of the Phillies.

And just like that, he is leading all major league shortstops in home runs. Flores was retired in his other three at-bats Monday and is batting just .252 with a .287 on-base percentage for the season, but his pop gives him value at a position where production is scarce.
May 25 - 4:25 PM

David Wright is headed to California to have his back examined by a specialist.

Wright was diagnosed last week with spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal column, and the veteran third baseman is trying to figure out a treatment plan. More should be known in the next couple of days. It's probably going to be a while before we see him return to the Mets' active roster.
