  • Nimmo homers twice as Mets topple Rockies
    Brandon Nimmo hit an inside-the-park homer to lead off the game and a more conventional round-tripper in the seventh as the Mets beat Rockies, 12-2, to take the series opener on Monday. Jacob deGrom went eight innings, allowing one earned run and striking out seven to help New York win its third in a row.
  • deGrom stellar again as dominant run continues
    Circumstances had grown unfathomable enough for Jacob deGrom that after the National League Cy Young Award candidate's last start, teammate Todd Frazier approached him to apologize for the Mets' offensive woes. Over a 10-start stretch, deGrom had posted a 0.87 ERA. The Mets were 2-8 in those games. So it was a completely foreign feeling when, in the seventh inning of a 12-2 blowout over the Rockies on Monday, deGrom joked that he almost didn't want to beat out a fielder's choice because he didn't feel like running the bases. Already with six runs on the board at that time, the Mets had given deGrom as much support as in his previous five starts combined. They went on to add six more to seal up deGrom's first win in exactly one month.
  • Mets remaining patient on possible trades
    Entering this week's series at Coors Field seven games out of a National League Wild Card spot, and 10 1/2 out of their division, the Mets are beginning to come to grips with the possibility that they will not be serious playoff contenders this summer. But they're not there quite yet. While a team official said the Mets are open to listening on offers for all their players, including starters Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard, he cautioned that they won't likely complete any deals soon. The official said the Mets first want to play out the next few weeks to see if they climb back into contention.

  • Asdrubal, Nimmo eyeing NL All-Star Game
    In the second update of All-Star voting released Monday by Major League Baseball, second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera was the only Met who ranked among the top five at his position. Brandon Nimmo's write-in candidacy for the All-Star Game hasn't gained enough traction to place him in the Top 15 National League outfielders in voting, but his play on the field could get him to the game regardless.
  • Mets send Vargas to take on Rox at Coors Field
    For as long as Noah Syndergaard remains on the disabled list, Jason Vargas' place in the Mets' rotation is secure. In the meantime, Vargas will look to keep strengthening his resume when he starts Tuesday at Coors Field. Shaky early this season, Vargas owns a 3.00 ERA over his last three starts, though he hasn't gone deeper than five innings in any of them. He'll oppose Rockies right-hander German Marquez in the 8:40 p.m. ET game.
  • Mets stun D-backs with 2 HRs, 4 runs in 9th
    Stymied for much of Sunday, the Mets scored a 5-3 victory over the D-backs at Chase Field when Brandon Nimmo hit a go-ahead, two-run homer off Brad Boxberger in the ninth, and Asdrubal Cabrera followed with a solo shot. The late dramatics took Mets starter Zack Wheeler off the hook for what would have been a tough-luck loss, after he struck out eight over six innings of two-run ball.

  • Conforto's HR, 4 RBIs help Mets snap skid in AZ
    Less than a week after snapping an 0-for-22 funk, Michael Conforto broke out on Saturday with a home run and four RBIs in a 5-1 win over the D-backs that ended the Mets' four-game losing streak. Steven Matz took advantage of Conforto's big night, holding Arizona to one run over 6 2/3 innings.

  • Mets' bullpen unable to slow surging D-backs
    With Jeurys Familia and AJ Ramos on the disabled list, and Seth Lugo in the rotation, the Mets have struggled to find consistency closing out games. They struggled again Thursday, when Hansel Robles issued a leadoff walk, Jerry Blevins allowed both batters he faced to reach base, and Paul Sewald forced home a critical insurance run in the Mets' 6-3 loss to the D-backs.
  • Conforto among those poised for turnaround
    It is difficult to know how much of a role the shoulder recovery might be playing a role in Michael Conforto's slow start, but one must think his talent eventually will take over and help him emerge from his season-long funk.
