Bartolo Colon shut out the Cubs for seven innings, striking out eight, in a no-decision Wednesday.

It's the first time this season that Colon has gone without allowing a run. It's also the first time in 16 starts that he's gotten a no-decision. He's 9-6 with a 4.55 ERA.

Lucas Duda went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Duda is hitting .177 with one homer in 26 games since the beginning of June. The Mets badly need him to recapture his April and May form if they're going to have any sort of offense at all.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports David Wright (back) is "picking up activity," but there remains no timetable for his return.

Specifically, Rubin said it's still unclear whether "picking up activity" means Wright will run or take grounders next week. Two weeks ago Mets general manager Sandy Alderson pinpointed the All-Star break as the hope for Wright's return, but the break draws ever nearer without Wright making any tangible progress. Sometime shortly after the All-Star break may be a better guess at this point.

Mets OF prospect Michael Conforto collected three hits in Tuesday's win for Double-A Binghamton.

He crushed a two-run homer in the fifth inning, giving him three in 28 games since his call-up. He's hit .333 for Binghamton, which is actually 50 points higher than he batted at High-A St. Lucie earlier this year. The 22-year-old has put together a .376 on base percentage over 327 plate appearances at two minor league levels this season.

Michael Cuddyer (knee) isn't expected to require a trip to the disabled list.

Cuddyer had to leave Tuesday's game with a left knee injury, but an MRI apparently didn't show any serious damage. The Mets think he'll only have to sit out a few days.
Jul 1 - 3:44 PM

Michael Cuddyer admitted that he was "definitely concerned" about the left knee injury that forced him from Tuesday's game versus the Cubs.

Cuddyer said he first felt pain in the knee while running to first base after his first plate appearance, but he wasn't removed until the seventh. The veteran outfielder will undergo an MRI on Wednesday to determine the extent of the damage, but it sounds like a trip to the disabled list could be in the offing.

Daniel Murphy finished 1-for-4 with a double in his return to the Mets on Tuesday.

Murphy, playing his first game since June 4, had one of the Mets' three hits on the evening. The double was his 15th in 56 games played this year. Murphy is hitting .282/.333/.416 overall.

Michael Cuddyer will undergo an MRI on his left knee Wednesday.

Cuddyer left Tuesday's game against the Cubs after injuring the knee. It's unclear how worried the Mets are about the outfielder at this point, but the fact that he's having the MRI certainly creates some cause for concern.
Jun 30 - 9:46 PM

Jon Niese was on the wrong end of a low-scoring affair Tuesday, taking the loss despite allowing one run over seven innings against the Cubs.

Niese allowed a lone run on four hits while also walking four on the evening. The lefty struck out five in the losing effort. It has become a bit of a pattern for Niese, who fell to 3-8 despite a decent 3.90 ERA. Niese still hasn't won since May 9, but he'll look to correct that Sunday at the Dodgers.

Michael Cuddyer left Tuesday's game versus the Cubs with a sore left knee.

Cuddyer didn't suffer an obvious injury, so it's unclear how he was hurt. The Mets should have more on the veteran outfielder's status later Tuesday.

Mets pitching prospect John Gant fanned 10 hitters over eight shutout frames Monday for High-A St. Lucie.

After a subpar showing in Binghamton earlier this year, Gant has looked like a completely different pitcher in six outings for St. Lucie. He's punched out 48 hitters in that span with a stunning 1.79 ERA. The 22-year-old is ready for another shot at Double-A. Expect a promotion in the near future.

Mets optioned INF Dilson Herrera to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Wilmer Flores is set to take over as the starting second baseman, so Herrera is better off getting regular playing time in the minors. The 21-year-old is batting just .195/.290/.317 over 93 plate appearances at the major league level, but he still has a lot of long-term promise.
Jun 30 - 2:25 PM

Mets activated INF Daniel Murphy from the 15-day disabled list.

Murphy, out since June 5 with a strained right quad, is expected to take over at third base while Wilmer Flores will play second and Ruben Tejada will function as the regular shortstop. The 30-year-old was batting .283/.335/.414 with four homers and 29 RBI in 55 games prior to the injury.
Jun 30 - 2:22 PM

Jenrry Mejia struck out two batters in a scoreless inning Monday with Triple-A Las Vegas.

It was his first appearance with Triple-A after making two scoreless outings with the Mets' Gulf Coast League affiliate. Mejia is eligible to return from his 80-game PED suspension on July 7. He's likely to set up for Jeurys Familia upon his return.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are "not in active discussions" with the Mets regarding Jon Niese.

He adds that Niese is just "one of many pitchers" the Dodgers are considering. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has also reported that the Cubs -- another club connected to Niese -- had discussions about the lefty but are "not on him now." Niese may very well wind up being traded, but Heyman says his market is "less than robust at present."
