  • Conforto rides 'Scooter' for Players Weekend
    It was shortly after Michael Conforto's big league callup in 2015 that a group of Mets pitchers took it upon themselves to determine what the rookie's nickname should be. The one that stuck will be on Conforto's jersey for the inaugural Players Weekend, Aug. 25-27.
  • Cespedes robs Lamb of XBH with 5-star catch

  • Rosario's miscue costs deGrom, offers lesson
    Baseball has a way of inflicting growing pains on its young players, no matter how highly touted they may be. That much was apparent for Amed Rosario during the Mets' 6-4 loss to the Marlins on Sunday at Citi Field.

  • Young Mets thankful for Grandy's mentorship
    Curtis Granderson's nameplate that hung above his locker in the corner of the Mets' room rested on a table about 20 feet outside the doors that led to the clubhouse. Granderson, who was traded to the postseason-bound Dodgers after the Mets' 3-1 loss to the Marlins on Friday, will not be walking through those doors anytime soon. His teammates know that, but Granderson's presence and impact, especially on the younger players, will still be felt.
  • Rivera claimed by Cubs; Mets recall Plawecki
    NEW YORK -- Backup catcher Rene Rivera was awarded to the Cubs on a waiver claim on Saturday, ending his stint with the Mets that spanned the majority of two seasons. The Mets recalled catcher Kevin Plawecki from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move. Additionally, to replace recently traded outfielder Curtis Granderson on the 25-man roster, the Mets activated pitcher Tommy Milone from the disabled list. Milone had been on the DL retroactive to May 24 with a sprained left knee.

  • Mets deal Grandy to LA for player to be named
    When the Mets signed Curtis Granderson to a four-year, $60 million free agent deal in December 2013, the contract ushered in a new era for the Mets. The day the signing became official at MLB's Winter Meetings, the Mets crowed about their desire to start competing on an annual basis, with a rising payroll and so much bright, young pitching.
  • Flexen's effort not enough in loss to Marlins
    The Mets were determined heading into this weekend's series with the Marlins not to let Giancarlo Stanton beat them.
  • Familia to slowly make his way back to closer
    Within the next few days, Mets closer Jeurys Familia will return to the mound for a second Minor League rehab appearance. Familia, who underwent surgery to remove a blood clot from his right shoulder in May, still needs to show the Mets he can throw at least 30 pitches in an inning before they will activate him. The organization plans to take his rehab slowly, likely stretching it into the final days of August.
  • Grandy's slam not enough in Subway defeat
    Gary Sanchez is carrying a sizzling bat for a second consecutive August, as the catcher homered and drove in five runs to lead the Yankees to a 7-5 victory over the Mets on Thursday at Citi Field, completing a four-game sweep of the Subway Series.
  • Matz seeking answers to puzzling rough stretch
    Steven Matz has tried throwing multiple bullpen sessions between starts, as Jacob deGrom has done with great success. He has tried skipping bullpen sessions altogether. Matz has commissioned hitting coaches Kevin Long and Pat Roessler to examine whether he is tipping pitches. He has dabbled in new drills with pitching coach Dan Warthen. None of it has worked.

The team recalled infielders Gavin Cecchini and Matt Reynolds, also optioning reliever Kevin McGowan to Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move.
