Amed Rosario is not in the Mets' lineup for Saturday's game against the Brewers.

It looks to be just a routine day of rest for the 22-year-old shortstop. Jose Reyes will start in his place and bat eighth against Chase Anderson and the Brewers.

Noah Syndergaard yielded three runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Friday.

Syndergaard allowed six hits — including a solo homer to Travis Shaw in the second inning — while striking out eight and walking none. He was only at 78 pitches through six innings, but Mets manager Mickey Callaway elected to have Jose Reyes pinch hit for him with a runner on first base and two outs in the top of the seventh. Reyes, who has been one of the worst players in baseball this season, grounded out. Syndergaard holds a 3.06 ERA and 76/13 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings through 11 starts. He’ll get the Braves next on the road.

Michael Conforto connected for a solo homer, drew a walk, and scored two runs Friday against the Brewers.

Conforto was scuffling at the start of the season after returning from shoulder surgery, but he’s hit four of his five homers in the span of his last 14 games. He’s also batting .283 (15-for-53) during that time. He might be finally coming around.

Amed Rosario slugged a long solo homer Friday against the Brewers.

It was a 437-foot shot to center field. Rosario has shown growing pains so far this year and owns an ugly 35/4 K/BB ratio over 45 games, but he’s hitting .350 (7-for-20) with three homers over his last six games. Expect more ups and downs as he continues to gain experience against major league pitching.

Yoenis Cespedes (hip) began a running program Friday.

It's obviously a significant step forward as Cespedes works his way back from a strained right hip flexor. He's likely to require a few rehab games before the Mets activate him. Cespedes has been sidelined for the previous week and a half with the injury.
May 25 - 5:12 PM

Todd Frazier (hamstring) hasn't been cleared to resume running yet.

Frazier resumed hitting a few days ago, but obviously running will be the bigger test for his strained left hamstring. He will go out on a rehab assignment before being activated. Wilmer Flores, Jose Reyes and Luis Guillorme have played third base since Frazier went down, but the Mets are expected to give Flores an extended look moving forward.

Mets SS prospect Andres Gimenez went 3-for-3 with three stolen bases on Thursday for High-A St. Lucie.

Gimenez also walked, and he scored his 25th run of the season. The highlight here is the steals, and the three taken bags gives him 15 on the year. The top prospect in the New York system, Gimenez has an above-average hit tool -- possibly even plus -- and once on base, his solid speed gives him a chance to steal plenty of bags going forward. There's not a ton of power here, but he can capitalize on mistakes, and can put the ball into the gaps. He's not going to be a Met anytime soon, but he could be an everyday player for them before the end of 2020.
May 25 - 2:22 PM

Brandon Nimmo went a perfect 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a triple, a walk and two runs scored to lead the Mets to a 5-0 win over the Brewers on Thursday.

A four-hit night in any fashion is impressive, but none of Nimmo's three extra-base hits were cheap, all three ripped into right field in varying fashions. His fourth hit, an infield single, showed he's got some wheels, too, and it marked the eighth consecutive plate appearance in which Nimmo reached base. That's his forte -- he's got a .450 on-base percentage to go with a .294 average and .541 slugging percentage following Thursday's game -- and he's forcing his way into an everyday role as a result. It's not terribly sexy for standard mixed leagues, but deeper leagues and ones that account for OBP are leagues in which Nimmo should be owned quickly, if not already.
May 25 - 12:09 AM

Devin Mesoraco went 2-for-5 with an RBI double in a win over the Brewers on Thursday.

Mesoraco capped the Mets' scoring with the RBI double to left in the seventh inning. He added a single in the game. The Mesoraco-Matt Harvey trade was a fascinating one for all parties involved, and since joining the Mets the 29-year-old has seven hits in 35 at-bats, a .200 average, but with three homers, six RBI and eight runs scored. If he's available in deeper single-catcher leagues or any two-catcher leagues, there are plenty of worse options at the fantasy wasteland that is the catcher position.
May 24 - 11:59 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-run double and scored a run in Thursday's win over the Brewers.

Cabrera doubled in a pair of runs and came around to score on a Wilmer Flores single in the fifth inning, extending the Mets' lead. It was Cabrera's only hit in five at-bats. The 32-year-old infielder is quietly having a very good year offensively through the first two months, hitting .307/.351/.523 with seven homers, 29 RBI and 26 runs scored, and should be in the mix for an MI spot or possibly even a starting second base gig in deeper fantasy leagues.
May 24 - 11:53 PM

Steven Matz tossed six shutout innings in a win over the Brewers on Thursday.

Matz gave up four hits and walked three but never gave in, turning in his first scoreless outing of the year to improve to 2-3. With the good turn, the left-hander owns a 3.80 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in nine starts. A start against the division-leading Braves is on tap for Tuesday.
May 24 - 11:38 PM

Mets manager Mickey Callaway said he has no plans to remove from Jeurys Familia the closer role.

Familia coughed up the lead in Wednesday's loss to the Marlins and now leads the majors with four blown saves. Even as the blown saves pile up, Callaway still has faith in his closer. "If you look at the numbers, he's been our best reliever," said Callaway. "He's the best version of himself he's ever been." Despite Wednesday's meltdown, Familia still carries an impressive 2.35 ERA to go with an equally superb 10.96 K/9. He'll be fine.
May 24 - 7:44 PM

Todd Frazier (hamstring) took batting practice on Thursday.

He also fielded grounders at third base. Frazier and Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) are both traveling with the team, though it's unclear if either is close to returning. The 32-year-old went on the DL with a strained hamstring earlier this month.
May 24 - 7:29 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (hip) took batting practice on Thursday.

Cespedes accompanied the Mets on their road trip to Milwaukee, though the team has yet to give a firm timetable for his return. The 32-year-old slugger was hitting .255 with eight homers and 28 RBI before landing on the DL with a strained hip flexor earlier this month.
May 24 - 7:18 PM

Hansel Robles (knee) allowed a run on three hits and a walk Wednesday in his first rehab appearance at Triple-A Las Vegas.

Robles landed on the disabled list May 9 after spraining his right knee during a relief appearance against the Reds. He should be ready to return to the Mets' bullpen after a couple better rehab outings.
