Jacob deGrom was lit up for five runs on 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Marlins.

The right-hander struck out eight and didn't issue a walk, but the Marlins rattled off nine singles against him and Giancarlo Stanton took deGrom deep for a three-run homer in the top of the seventh inning. He'll bring a 13-7 record and 3.49 ERA into his next start on the road versus the NL East-leading Nationals.

Mets acquired RHP Jacob Rhame from the Dodgers to complete the trade of OF Curtis Granderson.

Rhame, 24, holds a 3.29 ERA and 70/28 K/BB ratio over 63 innings at the Triple-A level this season. A hard thrower who is now on the Mets' 40-man roster, Rhame could debut before the end of 2017.

Mets activated LHP Tommy Milone from the 60-day disabled list.

Milone missed the last three months with a sprained knee. He'll operate in long relief for now but could get some starts down the stretch.

Dominic Smith homered and scored two runs as the Mets bested the Marlins 8-1 on Saturday.

Smith went up to get a Javier Guerra offering in the eighth inning, lifting it over the right field fence to pad the Mets' lead. He's now homered twice in his nine MLB games, two of his five hits in 29 at-bats since his promotion earlier this month. Just 22 years old, Smith may learn on a curve but is a name to keep in mind for the future of the first base position.

Wilmer Flores hit his 15th home run of the year, a two-run blast, in a win over the Marlins on Saturday.

Flores got all of it and he knew it, taking a few steps toward first base as he watched the ball sail down the left field line and into the seats. It was part of a seven-run sixth inning for the New York club. Flores is on his way to a career high in homers, as he's now one shy of the mark set in 2015 and tied in 2016. The 26-year-old is having a strong offensive season all around, batting .281/.318/.497 through 96 games.
Aug 19 - 11:31 PM

Kevin Plawecki hit a two-run home run, his first of the season, in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

After Rene Rivera was claimed by the Cubs, Plawecki was recalled by the club and socked a two-run shot in his first game back. He had just three hits in 24 sporadic at-bats before being sent down May 25. Travis d'Arnaud has done nothing offensively to cement his spot behind the dish, so although nobody is banking on it, the 26-year-old Plawecki could earn more at-bats by showing some life in the coming weeks.

Rafael Montero held the Marlins to one run over six innings in a win Saturday.

Montero allowed six hits and walked three, but he danced around most of the potential danger thanks in part to inducing 12 ground balls. The win was the first for Montero since June 25, leaving him at 2-8 on the year. He owns a 5.47 ERA and 1.73 WHIP through 77 1/3 innings. Montero's next start will come Thursday against the Diamondbacks.
Aug 19 - 11:15 PM

Chris Flexen yielded three runs over 5 1/3 innings in Friday’s loss to the Marlins.

The big blow was a two-run homer from J.T. Realmuto in the second inning. Flexen gave up five hits in all while walking four batters. He struck out just one batter and induced only two swinging strikes. The 23-year-old skipped Triple-A altogether and wouldn’t have been in the majors this season if it wasn’t for a boatload of injures in the Mets’ rotation. With a 6.55 ERA and 14/16 K/BB ratio through five starts, most fantasy owners can do better.
Aug 19 - 12:55 AM

Amed Rosario went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Friday’s loss to the Marlins.

Both of his hits were singles. Rosario has proven to be a free-swinger early on in his major league career, batting .241 with a 19/1 K/BB ratio through 17 games, but he has at least mixed in five extra-base hits (including two homers) and three steals.
Aug 19 - 12:53 AM

Wilmer Flores (rib cage) went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and a walk in his return to action Friday against the Marlins.

He drove in the only run of the game for the Mets. Flores missed back-to-back games during the Subway Series due to soreness in his rib cage, but he made the start at first base on Friday with Dominic Smith on the bench against left-hander Justin Nicolino. He should see playing time all over the Mets' infield down the stretch.
Aug 19 - 12:53 AM

Zack Wheeler (arm) has resumed a throwing program.

It sounds like it's only been flat-ground work so far but that Wheeler is nearing a return to a mound. The right-hander is working his way back from a stress reaction in his pitching arm. Wheeler should make it back sometime this season if all goes well, but there's no timetable for his return.
Aug 18 - 9:29 AM

Steven Matz allowed seven runs -- six earned -- over 3 1/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

Matz was in a 3-0 hole after four batters, and while he managed to hold the Yanks at bay in the second and third innings, they struck again for four more runs in the fourth. Matz gave up a homer among his seven hits allowed, also walking two while striking out four. The loss was the sixth in a row for the 26-year-old, who hasn't won since June 28. Matz will carry a 2-7 record and 6.08 ERA into Tuesday's matchup with a dangerous Diamondbacks team.
Aug 18 - 12:26 AM

Mets optioned RHP Kevin McGowan to Triple-A Las Vegas.

McGowan didn't see the field during his four-day stint in the majors. Perhaps we'll see him again when rosters expand next month.
Aug 17 - 5:55 PM

Mets placed INF Jose Reyes on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

It's not considered a serious strain, so Reyes could be ready for activation as soon as his 10 days are up. Gavin Cecchini and Matt Reynolds have both been called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to provide the Mets with badly-needed infield depth.
Aug 17 - 3:23 PM

Mets recalled INF Gavin Cecchini from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Cecchini will give the Mets much-needed infield depth. He was batting .267/.329/.380 through 497 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level.
