Mets transferred OF Cesar Puello from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Johnny Monell. Puello remains sidelined with a stress fracture in his back.
May 6 - 8:36 AM

Mets purchased the contract of C Johnny Monell from Triple-A Las Vegas.

The Mets plan to carry three catchers for the time being. Monell is batting .397/.455/.638 with four homers at Las Vegas this season.

Jeurys Familia earned his 11th save of the season despite allowing a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-2 win against the Orioles.

Familia gave up a leadoff solo home run to Chris Davis to cut the Mets' lead to 3-2, but he got a strikeout from Delmon Young, a fly out from Caleb Joseph, and a ground out from Travis Snider to end the contest. Familia is now 11-for-11 in save opportunities with a 1.88 ERA, 0.56 WHIP, and a 17/3 K/BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings. The Mets couldn't have asked for much more in a pinch after losing Jenrry Mejia.
May 5 - 9:46 PM

Bartolo Colon pitched effectively into the eighth inning, earning his fifth win of the season to help the Mets take down the Orioles on Tuesday.

Colon was working on a shutout until Manny Machado lifted a solo home run to left-center with one out in the eighth inning. He got one more out, then was taken out of the game. The right-hander scattered six hits in total while issuing no walks and striking out nine. The 41-year-old has been in top form through six starts, sporting a terrific 2.90 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and a 36/1 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings. Colon will go for win number six at Wrigley Field against the Cubs next.

David Wright (hamstring) is expected to begin running the bases by Thursday.

And if he looks good doing that, he could start playing in rehab games by the weekend. Wright has been on the disabled list since April 14 because of a right hamstring strain. He's around 10 days from rejoining the Mets.

Mets prospect OF Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-5 with two doubles on Monday for Double-A Binghamton.

The three-hit performance was Nimmo’s second in as many days, and he’s batting .372 with 16 hits in his last 10 games. The 22-year-old is off to a strong start this season in his return to Binghamton, batting .304/.375/.457 with nine extra-base hits and nine walks through 23 games. Nimmo logged 65 games in the Eastern League last summer and showed a bit more power without sacrificing his patient approach. If all goes as planned, Nimmo should split 2015 between the Double- and Triple-A levels, putting him on track to debut the following year.
May 5 - 3:24 PM

Mets optioned INF/OF Eric Campbell to Triple-A Las Vegas.

With David Wright (hamstring) out injured, Campbell chipped in some decent playing time. In 50 at-bats, he hit .200/.323/.320 with a home run and a pair of steals. Campbell doesn't offer much of a bat, but he does have some positional flexibility. The 28-year-old will bide his time in Vegas.
May 5 - 3:17 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday that David Wright (hamstring) is not back to 100 percent yet.

Wright ramped up some baseball activities last week, but he's not running at 100 percent and the Mets won't have a clear timetable for his return until he does. "It’s just hard to say," said Alderson. "He could be a week away, could be 10 days away. Until he gets into a game situation and feels confident with the leg, we’re not going to know." There was some talk about him returning this weekend, but now it appears that the best-case scenario is sometime next week. Daniel Murphy will continue to play third base during his absence while young Dilson Herrera will play second.
May 5 - 8:55 AM

The Mets are expected to promote Johnny Monell from Triple-A Las Vegas prior to Tuesday's game.

It's not clear at this point who he'll replace on the roster, as neither Kevin Plawecki nor Anthony Recker are dealing with any known injuries. Monell is batting .397/.455/.638 with four homers at Las Vegas this season.
May 4 - 4:47 PM

Rule 5 Draft pick Logan Verrett cleared waivers and has been returned to the Mets.

Verrett was selected by the Orioles in December's Rule 5 Draft and then claimed off waivers by the Rangers in early April. Now he's back with the organization that made him a third-round pick in the 2011 MLB Amateur Draft. Verrett, 24, allowed seven runs -- six earned -- in nine innings of relief this season with Texas. He'll join the Mets' Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas.
May 4 - 1:08 PM

Dillon Gee managed to only give up one run but wasn't sharp Sunday, yielding six hits and five walks over five frames in a loss.

Gee did record five punchouts, but he needed 94 pitches to get through five innings and was flirting with trouble all day. Although he wasn't great in this one, the right-hander has overall rebounded from a slow first two starts, allowing just four runs across his last three outings. He'll face the Phillies next weekend.
May 3 - 4:34 PM

Mets prospect Noah Syndergaard matched a career-high with ten strikeouts Saturday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Syndergaard hasn't allowed a run in his last 14 innings, fanning 19 hitters over that span. The 22-year-old has handed out just two free passes in his last two starts. Syndergaard doesn't have much left to prove in Triple-A. If one of New York's starters gets injured, the Mets know who to call.

Wilmer Flores is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

It's the second straight day he's been on the bench in favor of Ruben Tejada. Flores is clearly overmatched defensively at shortstop, and it's possible we could start seeing Tejada more and more at the position.
May 3 - 10:34 AM

Juan Lagares hit two singles in Saturday's loss to the Nationals.

Lagares also struck out in the game. The ace defender has already accumulated 31 hits this season, all but four of which have gone for singles. Thus a .313 batting average, and thus a .364 slugging percentage. Lagares has also knocked in 11 runs and scored 13. For fantasy purposes, he'll give you the average, but his ceiling is seriously damaged by the lack of power.
May 2 - 11:07 PM

John Niese pitched well in Saturday's loss to the Nationals, surrendering just one run over his seven innings of work.

Niese did allow nine hits, but the only run to cross the plate came on an infield single by Michael Taylor in the second inning. This would be the only run of the game, though, sticking Niese with the tough-luck loss. The veteran left-hander struck out five and walked just one. While the outward ERA looks great at 2.40, that's going to rise if he doesn't get his 1.54 WHIP under control. Niese has posted an ERA of 3.71 or lower in each of the last three seasons and he seems to be on that way in 2015, though it's unlikely that the number sticks in the current 2.40 range. He'll look to allow fewer hits against the Phillies in his next start.
