  • Mets' Danny Young: Returning to majors

    The Mets will recall Young from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    With the Mets running low on fresh bullpen arms and Jorge Lopez slated to be DFA'd, Young will return to New York for his second big-league stint of the season. The 30-year-old southpaw threw three scoreless innings across two games with the Mets in early May, and he's posted a 1.59 ERA through 11.1 innings in the minors. Although he's had success limiting runs, Young has been known to give up a fair amount of walks, so he will presumably work in middle relief once he officially gets the call to the majors.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Solid in season debut

    Peterson came away with a no-decision in Wednesday's 10-3 loss to the Dodgers, giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out three.

    Making his season debut after recovering from offseason hip surgery, Peterson tossed 86 pitches (57 strikes) in a solid performance and left the mound with the score tied 3-3. The Mets are running with a six-man rotation at least until their trip to London in early June to face the Phillies, so the southpaw should get another start early next week, on the road against the Nationals. Whether Peterson remains in the rotation after that is unclear.

  • Mets' Jorge Lopez: DFA imminent

    The Mets will designate Lopez for assignment Thursday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Lopez allowed two earned runs in just one-third of an inning during Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers and was ejected from the game after arguing a check swing call. The 31-year-old right-hander then tossed his glove into the stands while walking toward New York's dugout and said after the game that he has been on "the worst team in MLB." Understandably, the Mets will boot him off their 40-man roster and give other bullpen-needy teams the opportunity to claim him off waivers. Lopez owns a 3.76 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through 26.1 innings on the year.

  • Mets' Pete Alonso: X-rays negative

    X-rays on Alonso's right hand came back negative Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The Mets won't be able to confirm whether or not Alonso avoided a fracture until the results of his CT scan come back Thursday, but a clean X-ray is certainly an encouraging sign. The 29-year-old remains day-to-day after getting hit in the hand by a 93-mph fastball during Wednesday's contest.

  • Mets' Pete Alonso: Undergoing imaging

    Alonso will undergo imaging on his right hand after being hit by a pitch Wednesday against the Dodgers, Pat Ragazzo of reports.

    The 29-year-old was struck by a 93-mph fastball in the first inning, and it's no surprise he's being sent for testing. Alonso should be considered day-to-day until more information is available

  • Mets' Pete Alonso: Exits after HBP on hand

    Alonso was removed from Wednesday's game against the Dodgers after being hit on the right hand by a pitch in the first inning, David Lennon of Newsday reports.

    A 93 mile-per-hour four-seamer struck Alonso, and he was lifted for a pinch runner after taking his base. The big first baseman is surely headed for X-rays, with an update on his condition from the Mets likely to come later Wednesday.

  • Mets' Josh Walker: Back in big leagues

    The Mets recalled Walker from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Walker was optioned to Syracuse just four hours earlier, but he 's back with the big club to replace the injured Edwin Diaz (shoulder) in the bullpen. The southpaw has allowed just two runs with a 7:3 K:BB over 8.2 innings with the Mets this season.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Hits IL with shoulder impingement

    The Mets placed Diaz on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with a right shoulder impingement.

    Left-hander Josh Walker was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to take Diaz's spot on the 26-man active roster and in the New York bullpen. After blowing ninth-inning leads in four of his last five appearances, Diaz had already been expected to get a break from closing duties, and his injury will only further delay his opportunity to resurface as the Mets' preferred ninth-inning man. Reed Garrett and Adam Ottavino likely represent the best bets for saves out of the Mets bullpen while Diaz is on the shelf.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Back on bench Wednesday

    Stewart is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Stewart had started in each of the past four games while Harrison Bader received two days off and with Starling Marte and J.D. Martinez both resting once. With the exception of catcher Francisco Alvarez (thumb), the Mets have all their key hitters available at the moment, so Stewart still looks to be part-time player despite the recent uptick in starting opportunities.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Heading to bench Wednesday

    Baty is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Baty was in the lineup for three of the last four games with the Mets facing four right-handed starting pitchers, but he'll give way to the righty-hitting Mark Vientos on Wednesday while southpaw James Paxton takes the hill for the Dodgers. Vientos should continue to regularly replace the lefty-hitting Baty when the Mets face lefties, but the distribution of starts at third base between the two against right-handed pitching still looks to be up in the air. Baty has helped his cause by getting on base five times in 12 plate appearances over his last three starts, but Vientos owns a 1.085 OPS since his May 15 call-up from Triple-A Syracuse to keep himself in the mix for starts against righties.

  • Mets' Dedniel Nunez: Heads back to Triple-A

    The Mets returned Nunez to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday.

    As expected, Nunez will head back to Syracuse one day after he was called up to serve as the 27th man for Tuesday's doubleheader with the Dodgers. Nunez appeared in relief in the Mets' 3-0 loss in the second game of the twin bill, covering two scoreless innings while giving up one hit and one walk and striking out three.

  • Mets' Josh Walker: Returns to minors

    The Mets optioned Walker to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    A spot on the active roster was required for Wednesday's starting pitcher, David Peterson, and Walker was the casualty. The left-handed reliever has pitched well during his time in the majors this season -- allowing just two runs with a 7:3 K:BB over 8.2 innings -- so it would appear to be a case of him having minor-league options left working against him.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Activated for 2024 debut

    The Mets reinstated Peterson (hip) from the 60-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday versus the Dodgers at Citi Field.

    The Mets moved Adrian Houser to the bullpen over the weekend to make room in the rotation for Peterson, who will be making his 2024 debut for the big club after spending the first two months of the season on the IL while he completed his recovery from Nov. 6 surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip. Peterson exhibited few signs of rust during his lengthy rehab assignment, as he racked up 35 strikeouts against three walks while pitching to a 1.14 ERA over 23.2 innings across his six outings with Triple-A Syracuse, Double-A Binghamton and Single-A St. Lucie. Despite his success during the rehab assignment, fantasy managers may want to tread carefully with Peterson in his first start with the Mets since he'll be facing off against a Dodgers lineup that ranks second in baseball with a .333 wOBA.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Sitting against left-hander

    Nimmo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Dodgers.

    Southpaw James Paxton is on the hill for the Dodgers, so the left-handed-hitting Nimmo will open Wednesday's game on the bench. Tyrone Taylor will patrol left field while Nimmo rests.

  • Mets' Jose Quintana: Stuck with loss in quality start

    Quintana (1-5) took the loss in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, giving up three runs on eight hits over six innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    The veteran lefty didn't pitch badly, but a lack of run support and homers by Will Smith and Miguel Vargas doomed him to defeat as the Mets fell, 3-0. The quality start was Quintana's third of the season, and he'll carry a 5.06 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 39:18 K:BB through 58.2 innings into his next outing, which lines up to come on the road early next week against the Nationals.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Blows second save

    Ottavino blew his second save of the season in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, giving up a run on three hits in the ninth inning while striking out one.

    Called upon to protect a 2-1 lead, Ottavino instead gave up three straight singles to begin the frame, although the third one came on a safety squeeze by Chris Taylor that the right-hander couldn't field cleanly. Ottavino hasn't been able to take advantage of Edwin Diaz's recent struggles, and he's stumbled to a 6.75 ERA and 1.93 WHIP over his last 10 appearances. The back of the Mets' bullpen is a mess right now, and it's not clear who manager Carlos Mendoza might turn to the next time the team has a late lead.

  • Mets' Drew Gilbert: Out until second half of June

    The Mets aren't expecting Gilbert (hamstring) to return from Triple-A Syracuse's 7-day injured list until the second half of June, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    Gilbert hasn't played for Syracuse since April 6 due to what's evidently a moderate or high-grade right hamstring strain. Before being shut down, the 23-year-old outfielder slashed .240/.321/.360 with two walks and 10 strikeouts in seven games for Syracuse.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Dazzles in no-decision

    Megill came away with a no-decision in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, allowing three hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings. He struck out nine.

    The Mets wound up getting swept in the twin bill, but that was no fault of Megill's. The right-hander generated 32 called or swinging strikes among his 98 pitches in his best performance of the season, and he left the mound with the Mets ahead 2-0 only to watch the bullpen blow the lead and lose the game in 10 innings. Megill has an impressive 16:3 K:BB through 12 innings since returning from a shoulder strain, and he'll look for his first win of 2024 when he makes his next start, which is likely to come at home this weekend against the Diamondbacks.
