Daniel Murphy went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in a losing effort against the Yankees on Sunday night.

Murphy also drew a walk, reaching base safely in three of his four plate appearances. He has struggled mightily in the early going, slashing a mere .169/.247/.292 with one homer and 11 RBI. Hopefully this strong night finally gets him rolling.

Curtis Grandson led off Sunday night's loss against the Yankees by swatting his first home run of the season off Nathan Eovaldi.

It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. While he's only hitting .222 on the season, he has boasts a .364 on-base percentage and has done a nice job as a table setter atop the Mets lineup.

Jonathan Niese struggled in a losing effort against the Yankees on Sunday night, surrendering six runs (four earned) on eight hits over his five frames.

Niese struck out three and walked one on the night. The Mets defense certainly didn't do him any favors, committing four errors behind him. He gave up a solo homer to Alex Rodriguez in the first inning, then the Yankees broke the game open with a four-spot in the second. While he owns a 2.74 ERA, he sports a troublesome 1.61 WHIP and 14/9 K/BB ratio over 23 innings on the season. He'll look to get back in the win column against the Nationals on Friday.

David Wright (hamstring) will ramp up baseball activities on Monday as he continues his recovery from a strained hamstring.

Wright will take ground balls at third base and do some light running to test out his legs. If he comes through that without issue, he could soon be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. He's on track to rejoin the Mets in early May.

Mets prospect Steven Matz took a no-hitter into the seventh inning Saturday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

After the game Matz claimed he shook off catcher Dan Rohlfing only once in seven innings. He allowed two hits in the seventh but stranded the runners on first and third. The 23-year-old has been a difference maker for Las Vegas, recording a minuscule 2.01 ERA in 22 1/3 innings of work. MLB.com ranked Matz the third-best prospect in the Mets' system.

Mets prospect Michael Conforto went 3-for-4 with a home run Saturday for High-A St. Lucie.

Teams are starting to pitch around Conforto (five intentional walks) and for good reason. Saturday's blast was his fifth of the season. The 22-year-old is also hitting for average with five multi-hit efforts in his last 10 outings. MLB ranks Conforto as the fifth-best prospect in New York's minor league system.

Mets signed INF Brooks Conrad to a minor league contract.

Conrad made it up to the majors briefly with the Padres last season but spent the bulk of the year in Triple-A, batting .278/.349/.529 with 18 homers. He's merely a depth guy.

David Wright (hamstring) has advanced to hitting off a tee and throwing.

The next step is for him to test out his legs. A strained hamstring sent Wright to the DL on April 15. His three-week recovery timetable is still in play. Though Wright's fantasy value fell off a cliff last year (.269, 8 HR, 63 RBI in 535 at-bats), he was hitting a respectable .333 before getting hurt.
Apr 25 - 7:54 PM

Matt Harvey held the Yankees to two runs over 8 2/3 innings Saturday in the Mets' 8-2 victory.

Harvey nearly notched his second career complete game, but Mets manager Terry Collins gave him the hook after he walked Brian McCann with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. Probably the right move. Harvey struck out seven and yielded just five hits, moving to 4-0 with a 3.04 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 31/3 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings. He gets the Nationals at home next.
Apr 25 - 7:11 PM

Kevin Plawecki finished 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in Saturday's defeat of the Yankees.

The young catcher slugged a two-run shot off CC Sabathia in the top of the fourth inning and then smacked an RBI single off reliever Esmil Rogers in the top of the eighth. Plawecki has displayed flashes of high-level potential in place of Travis d'Arnaud (hand) and should have short-term value in two-catcher fantasy leagues.
Apr 25 - 7:05 PM

Lucas Duda had a sacrifice fly in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

Duda hit the sac fly off of Michael Pineda in the sixth inning and would finish the game 0-for-3 with an RBI. It was his 10th run knocked in this season. Duda's slashing .333/.414/.500 this April and looks primed for another big year. You can probably expect the average to fall somewhat, though, as he has just one major league season in which he's batted higher than .253.
Apr 24 - 11:24 PM

Juan Lagares went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Yankees, ending his 10-game hitting streak.

This was just the third game of a season in which Lagares has not recorded a hit. While ten-game hitting streaks are shiny, there's a dull sheen beneath the surface, as Lagares has just one extra-base hit on the season (a double) and is still searching for his first home run. He'll be hitting in the two-hole until David Wright and Travis d'Arnaud recover from injuries, but his value is still limited to deeper mixed leagues. Even in deeper leagues, the lack of power makes the 26-year-old outfielder a less than appealing option.
Apr 24 - 11:17 PM

Jacob deGrom had his worst start of the season in Friday's loss to the Yankees, surrendering six runs on eight hits in just five innings.

DeGrom was hit hard early, as he allowed a pair of two-run home runs to Mark Teixera and a solo shot to Jacoby Ellsbury to put his team in a 6-0 hole after three innings. The Mets would manage just one run, leveling deGrom's record at 2-2. The poor outing raised the 27-year-old righty's ERA to 2.96 and his WHIP to 1.32. While nothing good came of Friday's start, deGrom allowed just seven long balls in 2014 and it's safe to say that we'll probably go a while before we see him blasted for another three-homer game. He'll try to keep the ball in the yard when he faces the Nationals in his next outing.
Apr 24 - 11:05 PM

Bobby Parnell (elbow) will be shut down for the next week due to forearm soreness.

The Mets don't appear to be overly concerned at this point, but Parnell's velocity has been down and he's been knocked around in his three rehab outings, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over 2 2/3 innings. Obviously, he's not going to rejoin the big club's bullpen anytime soon.
Apr 24 - 4:09 PM

Bartolo Colon improved to 4-0 after limiting the Braves to three runs over six innings as the Mets won their 11th consecutive game on Thursday.

Colon allowed seven hits, walked none, and struck out five on the afternoon. Andrelton Simmons accounted for most of the damage, knocking in two of the Braves' three runs. Colon is quietly off to a terrific start for the surging Mets, sitting with a 2.77 ERA, a 0.88 WHIP, and a 23/1 K/BB ratio. The 41-year-old will look to stay unbeaten when he faces the Marlins in Miami next week.
