Mets' Mark Vientos: On bench Tuesday
Vientos is absent from the lineup Tuesday versus Atlanta.
Daniel Vogelbach will serve as the Mets' designated hitter and bat fifth with right-hander Bryce Elder on the bump for the current NL East leaders. Brett Baty is playing third base and batting seventh. Vientos carried a lot of hype when he first got the call to the bigs in mid-May, but he's slashing just .188/.206/.281 through his first 34 major-league plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Francisco Alvarez: Not in lineup Tuesday
Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday at Atlanta.
Alvarez caught fire toward the end of May, but he's gone 0-for-14 with four strikeouts and zero walks over his last five games. Omar Narvaez will start behind the plate and bat ninth for the Mets on Tuesday night.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Tomas Nido: Pushed off 40-man roster
The Mets designated Nido for assignment Monday.
The transaction frees up a spot on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster for fellow catcher Omar Narvaez (calf), who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list prior to Tuesday's series opener in Atlanta. According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets are expected to find a taker for Nido via trade, but if a deal can't be finalized within the next few days, the veteran backstop will be exposed to waivers. The 29-year-old was hitting just .125 over 61 plate appearances on the season but was valued by the Mets for his defensive acumen.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Omar Narvaez: Returns from injured list
The Mets reinstated Narvaez (calf) from the 60-day injured list Monday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Narvaez is finally ready to roll after missing the past two months with a severe calf strain. Francisco Alvarez has seized the Mets' starting catcher job, but Narvaez should still play at least a couple times per week when Alvarez is serving as a designated hitter or receiving a day off....

Mets' Tomas Nido: DFA expected
Nido is expected to be designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man and 26-man rosters for Omar Narvaez (calf), Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports.
The Mets will go with Francisco Alvarez and Narvaez as their catching combination as Nido gets squeezed out of a job. Nido is regarded as a terrific defender, but that part of his game has taken a step back this season and he's been worse than ever as a hitter with a lowly .278 OPS. Mike Puma of the New York Post hears that the Mets are expected to trade Nido.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Elieser Hernandez: Rehabbing in Florida State League
Hernandez (shoulder) made the third appearance of his rehab assignment with Single-A St. Lucie on Sunday, striking out one while allowing no hits and one walk over 1.1 scoreless innings.
Hernandez, who has resided on the injured list all season with a right shoulder strain, has now made three rehab appearances in the Florida State League, recording no more than four outs and throwing no more than 20 pitches in any of those outings. The 28-year-old's light usage would seem to suggest that the Mets envision him filling in a relief role once he's activated from the 60-day IL, even though Hernandez has mostly operated as a starter over parts of five seasons in the majors....

Mets' Dominic Leone: Tagged with second loss
Leone (0-2) took the loss Sunday against the Blue Jays, allowing two runs on two hits over 1.1 innings in a 6-4 defeat.
After the Mets tied the game in the sixth inning, Leone surrendered a two-run homer to Brandon Belt that would prove to be the difference in the loss. The 31-year-old Leone had been pitching well prior to Sunday, delivering four consecutive scoreless appearances while punching out seven over 4.1 innings. He now sports a 5.40 ERA with a 1.43 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB across 13.1 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Starling Marte: Smacks third homer
Marte went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Sunday's loss to Toronto.
Marte tied the game 4-4 with a solo shot off Nate Pearson in the sixth inning, his third homer of the year and first since May 21. Marte's been swinging the bat well of late, going 11-for-35 (.314) with three extra-base hits in his last 10 games, boosting his slash line to .250/.314/.333 with 23 runs scored, 17 RBI and 17 steals in 212 plate appearances this season....

Mets' Pete Alonso: Homers Sunday
Alonso went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays.
Alonso cut the Mets' deficit to 4-3 in the sixth inning with a line-drive homer off Nate Pearson. It's Alonso's 21st long ball of the season, extending his league lead. The power-hitting first baseman had been struggling coming into Sunday's contest, going 2-for-19 (.105) with a .255 OPS in his last five games. Alonso is now slashing .231/.324/.538 with 47 RBI in 256 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Tommy Pham: Homers twice in loss
Pham went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in Sunday's 6-4 loss to Toronto.
Pham, starting in the leadoff spot for the first time this season, was responsible for all the Mets' offense against starter Yusei Kikuchi with a pair of long balls. Pham is now 9-for-25 (.360) with five extra-base hits in his last nine games following an 0-for-15 skid. The 35-year-old outfielder is slashing .234/.327/.457 with five home runs, 16 RBI and five stolen bases through 110 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Kodai Senga: Struggles with command
Senga did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits and five walks over 2.2 innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out three.
It took Senga 68 pitches to record just eight outs Sunday. The Japanese right-hander has issued four or more walks in six of his last eight starts in an inconsistent rookie campaign. Senga's 5-3 with a 3.75 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 73:36 K:BB through 11 starts (57.2 innings) this season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Daniel Vogelbach: Sitting against southpaw
Vogelbach is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
Vogelbach is just 3-for-27 over his past 12 games but continues to see regular action as the Mets' designated hitter. Mark Vientos will receive the start Sunday with lefty Yusei Kikuchi on the mound for Toronto.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Brett Baty: Out of Sunday's lineup
Bat is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
Baty started the past four games and will head to the bench Sunday after he went 1-for-14 with seven strikeouts during that stretch. Eduardo Escobar will handle the hot corner in his place.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Receives Sunday off
Nimmo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
Nimmo is 3-for-20 with seven strikeouts over the past five contests, and he'll receive a breather Sunday after making 49 consecutive starts. Tommy Pham will take over in center field and at the leadoff spot in the series finale versus Toronto.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Tylor Megill: Walks five in no-decision
Megill did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing one run on five hits and five walks over 5.1 innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out five.
Megill struggled with control once again Saturday, setting a season high with five walks while hitting the strike zone on just 58 of his 103 pitches. However, the 27-year-old managed to limit the damage with just a single tally against him. Though Megill owns a 5-3 record, he has stumbled to a 4.40 ERA and 48:32 K:BB through 59.1 innings, and a 5.19 FIP doesn't indicate a major turnaround is on the horizon.... See More ... See Less
