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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
May 25 - 12:26 PM

Lucas Duda (hamstring) is back in the Mets' starting lineup on Monday against the Phillies.

Duda tweaked his right hamstring while running to second base Saturday. It obviously wasn't a serious issue. The 29-year-old first baseman is batting .293/.385/.478 with five home runs and 19 RBI in 44 games this season. Juan Lagares (shoulder) is also back Monday.
May 25 - 10:21 AM

Juan Lagares (pectoral, elbow) is back in the Mets' starting lineup on Monday afternoon.

Lagares was a late scratch from Sunday's game with lingering soreness in his elbow and pectoral. They're minor ailments. Lucas Duda is also back in the Mets' lineup.
May 25 - 10:18 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins suggested Sunday that Matt Harvey may be going through a period of "dead arm."

Harvey had the worst outing of his career Saturday in the Mets' loss to the Pirates, yielding seven earned runs in four innings. But he was dominant against the Cardinals in his start before and the "dead arm" thing is really just speculation from Collins anyway. "I have not talked to Matt yet, but it looks like he might be going through some of that dead arm stuff that sometimes happens," said the Mets' skipper. "He’s going to pitch Friday with five days rest, be ready to go."

Bobby Parnell (elbow) worked a scoreless inning in his first minor league rehab appearance with Double-A Binghamton on Sunday.

He allowed just a one-run double, but was able to strand the runner at third without incident. Parnell was reportedly hitting as high as 94 mph on the radar gun and struck out one in the ballgame. It's unclear how many appearances he will require before becoming an option for the Mets bullpen.
May 24 - 9:42 PM

Mets shortstop prospect Gavin Cecchini went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Saturday's win for Double-A Binghamton.

Cecchini homered in the first and tied the score in the ninth with an RBI double. The 21-year-old has hit .381 during his five-game hitting streak. He's now ninth in the Eastern League in slugging (.492) and tenth in OPS (.853). The former first-round pick has struck out just 11 times in 122 at-bats this season.

Mets optioned C Johnny Monell to Triple-A Las Vegas.

With the injuries that the Mets are facing elsewhere, there is simply no room on the active roster to continue carrying a third catcher. The 29-year-old went 1-for-15 (.067) with four strikeouts while appearing in 11 games for the Mets.
