Juan Lagares went 1-for-4 in a game in which his entire team managed only two hits in a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

His sixth-inning single broke up a no-hit bid by Gio Gonzalez. Lagares is serving as a backup outfielder on a Mets team loaded with outfield talent. Today's hit was just his second of the season. He has a .133 batting average in 15 at-bats and is unlikely to have much fantasy value this season.

Jacob deGrom surrendered three runs in 5 2/3 innings while striking out 10 batters in a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

He reached double digits in strikeouts for the second consecutive start but issued more free passes (six) than in his first three starts combined (four). He didn't seem eager to challenge Bryce Harper, walking him three times. DeGrom's ERA rose from 1.89 to 2.55 due to the three runs he allowed. It was his first loss of the season and he has yet to be credited with a win. He will face the Nationals again in his next start, scheduled for Friday in the nation's capital.

Speaking after Saturday’s loss to the Nationals, Mets manager Terry Collins said he doesn’t expect Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) to play in Sunday’s series finale.

Cespedes spent most of Saturday’s game getting worked on in the trainer’s room and didn’t feel healthy enough to pinch-hit when Collins called on him in the seventh inning. With New York playing a night game in potentially cold weather, there’s little chance of Cespedes seeing the field on Sunday. He’s day-to-day.

Asdrubal Cabrera has returned to the Mets' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals.

Cabrera was held out of Friday's lineup due to an unspecified leg issue but is well enough to be back in there on Saturday. His bat becomes even more critical in a depleted lineup and Cabrera is occupying the third spot in the order against Gio Gonzalez and the Nationals.
Apr 22 - 12:29 PM

Yoenis Cespedes remains out of the Mets' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals.

Cespedes continues to battle a sore left hamstring and isn't available for a prime matchup against left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Michael Conforto is drawing another start for the Mets and is batting second on Saturday.
Apr 22 - 12:26 PM

Jeurys Familia walked in the go-ahead run in the 11th inning in Friday’s loss to the Nationals.

Josh Smoker began the 11th inning after tossing a scoreless 10th, but he was pulled after giving up a one-out double and Daniel Murphy was intentionally walked. Familia, who threw 30 pitches in his season debut on Thursday, then issued consecutive walks to Anthony Rendon and pinch-hitter Trea Turner to force in a run. He bounced back from there to strike out Chris Heisey and Jose Lobaton swinging, but the damage was done. Look for him to get the day off Saturday.
Apr 21 - 11:25 PM

Matt Harvey was handed a no-decision after giving up three runs over seven innings Friday against the Nationals.

Harvey was originally scheduled to pitch on Saturday, but he was moved up a day with Jacob deGrom dealing with neck stiffness. It was a strong outing under the circumstances. All of the damage came via the home run ball, as he allowed a two-run homer to Bryce Harper in the first and a solo shot to Jose Lobaton in the fifth. Harvey owns a 2.84 ERA through his first four turns, but he has allowed five homers with only 17 strikeouts in 25 1/3 innings. He’s not quite the Matt Harvey of old, but it’s working for him right now.
Apr 21 - 11:24 PM

Michael Conforto went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a walk Friday versus the Nationals.

Conforto led off the bottom of the first inning with a homer. He had a chance to play hero with two on and one out in the bottom of the ninth, but he grounded out to second base and the Mets eventually lost the game in extras. Still, it was another good night at the plate for the 24-year-old. He’s batting .345/.417/.690 with three homers through 14 games and continues to gain momentum in fantasy leagues.
Apr 21 - 11:24 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) was scratched from the Mets' lineup Friday.

He had been hoping to return after a one-game absence due to a right wrist contusion, but d'Arnaud still had some issues while trying to throw. Hopefully he'll be ready sometime this weekend. Rene Rivera is catching Friday.
Apr 21 - 4:20 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera is not in Friday's lineup due to an unspecified leg issue.

It's unclear what Cabrera is dealing with, but apparently he's been bothered by it for a few days. Consider him day-to-day. Jose Reyes is filling in at shortstop, while Juan Lagares is batting second.
Apr 21 - 4:16 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) is not in the Mets' lineup Friday.

But he hasn't been placed on the disabled list yet, which is obviously encouraging. Cespedes said he felt a "shock" in his left hamstring on Thursday and he'll be held out of action for a few days. The Mets have an outfield of Michael Conforto in left, Juan Lagares in center and Curtis Granderson in right Friday.
Apr 21 - 4:13 PM

Mets recalled INF T.J. Rivera from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Rivera didn't spend 10 days in the minors, but he can return since he's replacing a player going on the disabled list. He's starting at third base Friday and could potentially earn more time there with Jose Reyes struggling mightily.
Apr 21 - 4:10 PM

Mets recalled LHP Sean Gilmartin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Gilmartin was sent down Thursday, but he's returned with the Mets making a couple disabled list moves. He'll expected to work in long relief, although it's possible he'll have to make a spot start Saturday if Jacob deGrom (neck) isn't ready.
Apr 21 - 4:08 PM

Mets placed INF Wilmer Flores on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20, with a joint infection.

It seemed like a day-to-day thing, but evidently the Mets decided it was bad enough to shut Flores down for a while. It's possible he'll be back later this month.
Apr 21 - 4:07 PM

Mets placed 1B Lucas Duda on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20, with a hyperextended left elbow.

Duda hurt the elbow was trying to field a throw on Wednesday. It's unclear at this point how much time he'll miss. With Wilmer Flores also on the DL, Jay Bruce figures to handle first base regularly, clearing space in the lineup for Michael Conforto.
