Yoenis Cespedes (hip, quad) is not expected to begin baseball activities until early next week.

There was some thought that he might be ready to begin running drills this weekend, but the 32-year-old outfielder essentially remains in shutdown mode at the Mets' spring training complex in Florida. Cespedes has been sidelined since mid-May with hip and quad issues, and he seems doubtful to return before the All-Star break at this point.

Mets transferred RHP A.J. Ramos from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Ramos underwent season-ending surgery on his right shoulder Wednesday in New York. The impending free agen posted an ugly 6.41 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, and 22/15 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings this season with the Mets.
Jun 22 - 3:28 PM

Mets designated RHP Hansel Robles for assignment.

Robles had a 5.03 ERA in 19 2/3 innings of relief this season with the Mets, but the 27-year-old right-hander has been an effective bullpen arm in the past and could draw interest from other teams on waivers.
Jun 22 - 3:26 PM

Mets purchased the contract of OF Kevin Kaczmarski from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Kaczmarski was batting .363/.413/.450 in 92 plate appearances at the Triple-A level, but he doesn't have enough power to warrant attention in standard fantasy leagues. The 26-year-old outfielder has tallied just 11 home runs in over 1,400 career minor league plate appearances.
Jun 22 - 3:24 PM

Mets purchased the contract of RHP Drew Smith from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Smith will join the Mets' bullpen ahead of Friday night's series opener against the Dodgers. He was sporting a 2.88 ERA over 24 appearances (one start) this season with Triple-A Las Vegas and Double-A Binghamton.
Jun 22 - 3:22 PM

Mets released RHP Vance Worley.

Worley allowed 25 earned runs over 16 2/3 innings (four starts) with the Mets' Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas before landing on the Pacific Coast League disabled list with an elbow injury. He'll try to get healthy and latch on with a new organization. The 30-year-old right-hander posted an ugly 6.91 ERA and 1.80 WHIP across 71 2/3 innings with the Marlins in 2017.

Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports Mets RHP prospect Drew Smith will be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Kevin Kaczmarski is also heading to Queens. Clearly the Mets, losers of 15 of their last 19, are ready to shake things up. Smith arrived last year in a trade that sent Lucas Duda to Tampa Bay. The 24-year-old has excelled in the minors, compiling a 2.88 ERA over 24 appearances (one start) for Vegas and Double-A Binghamton this season. He's New York's No. 30 prospect, according to MLB.com.
Jun 21 - 8:43 PM

Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports Mets OF prospect Kevin Kaczmarski will be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas.

The 26-year-old has hit .346 in the minors this year including .363 over 80 at-bats for Las Vegas. A ninth-round pick out of Evansville in 2015, this will be Kaczmarski's first stint in the big leagues.
Jun 21 - 8:42 PM

Mets optioned RHP Paul Sewald to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Chris Flexen was also sent down. Sewald didn't retire either of the two batters he faced in Thursday's loss to Colorado, walking Ian Desmond before yielding a base hit to Chris Iannetta. After starting the year 11-1, the Mets are now 10 games below .500.
Jun 21 - 7:08 PM

Mets optioned RHP Chris Flexen to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Flexen's stay in the big leagues lasted all of four pitches. He retired the only batter he faced in Thursday's loss to Colorado. The 23-year-old carries an ugly 8.05 ERA across 16 career major league appearances including nine starts.
Jun 21 - 7:08 PM

Steven Matz gave up five runs in 5 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Rockies.

Matz still turned in the best showing for a Mets starter in Colorado. He gave up all five runs in the first two innings before settling down and trying to keep the Mets in the game. He ended up striking out six and walking two.
Jun 21 - 6:13 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 and hit his eighth homer at Coors Field on Thursday.

Frazier had been hitting just .182/.217/.327 in 55 at-bats since coming off the disabled list earlier this month. He should warm up, but he's a fringy mixed-league option, especially with his teammates performing rather poorly.
Jun 21 - 6:12 PM

Dominic Smith singled and doubled off the bench Thursday against the Rockies.

Smith didn't start against the lefty today, but he did double off southpaw Jake McGee in the ninth today. He's 9-for-29 since his callup, though that does come with a 9/1 K/BB ratio.
Jun 21 - 6:10 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (hip, quad) is hoping to progress to running drills in the next few days.

That's what Mets manager Mickey Callaway relayed to reporters on Thursday afternoon. Cespedes landed on the disabled list in mid-May with a right hip injury and then experienced tightness in his right quad earlier this month after embarking on a minor league rehab assignment. He could be ready to return in early-to-mid July if he's able to avoid further setbacks.
Jun 21 - 1:10 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday against the Rockies.

Cabrera banged his elbow on Wednesday night, but manager Mickey Callaway said this is a scheduled day of rest. Cabrera should be back in action for Friday night's series opener against the Dodgers. Jose Reyes is playing second base and batting seventh for the Mets on Thursday versus Colorado left-hander Kyle Freeland.
