6/26/2016 | Reyes plays first game with Class A Brooklyn

It was hours before game time, and the Class A Brooklyn Cyclones were taking batting practice. Five Brooklyn players were scattered to the right of the BP cage, their necks rotating in unison to follow the flight of the ball. The back of their navy blue warm-ups bared numbers: 10, 44, 3, 33. And, to the far right, a four-time All Star clad in blue and orange shorts kneeled on one knee. No. 7.

6/26/2016 | Nimmo unable to jump-start Mets in MLB debut

Brandon Nimmo alone cannot save the Mets, who dropped a 5-2 game to the Braves on Sunday in his Major League debut. Finishing 0-for-4, the club's No. 4 prospect was far from the only non-contributor.

6/26/2016 | Braves ride HRs, strong Norris to split with Mets

6/26/2016 | Johnson's HR makes 6-year-old son take notice

Along with damaging his former team with a home run that gave the Mets a 1-0, 11-inning win over the Braves on Saturday night at Turner Field, Kelly Johnson might have also gained more respect from his 6-year-old son Cole, who has become a baseball junkie.

6/26/2016 | Wheeler ready to restart baseball activities

Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler is due to begin long tossing Monday for the first time since the Mets shut him down last week due to right elbow discomfort. Wheeler, who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, was subsequently diagnosed with nerve irritation, but no further structural damage.

6/26/2016 | Mets tab Thor in first-place battle with Nationals

6/25/2016 | Runs for Mets 'hard to come by' with deGrom on hill

6/25/2016 | Hero in a pinch! Johnson's HR lifts Mets in 11th

Julio Teheran and Jacob deGrom waged an impressive pitching battle and maintained their status as two of baseball's most unfortunate pitchers in terms of run support. Once they exited on Saturday night at Turner Field, Kelly Johnson damaged his former team with a pinch-hit home run that provided the Mets a 1-0, 11-inning win over the Braves.

6/25/2016 | Colon looks to rebound from injury in finale vs. Braves

Bartolo Colon, coming off the shortest start of his 19-year career after being struck by a comebacker, will look to last longer when the Mets and Braves conclude a four-game series on Sunday at Turner Field.

6/25/2016 | Mets ink shortstop Reyes to Minors deal

Jose Reyes arrived in Flushing at age 19, still raw but one of the most intriguing prospects in franchise history. He signed a long-term deal, made four All-Star teams and won a batting title during a nine-year tenure in Queens, leaving as a free agent at age 28.

6/25/2016 | Mets call up Nimmo, option Conforto

In another move to jumpstart a scuffling offense, the Mets called up Brandon Nimmo -- ranked No. 4 on the club's list of top prospects -- from Triple-A Las Vegas prior to Saturday's game. In a corresponding move, the team optioned struggling outfielder Michael Conforto.

6/25/2016 | Familia sets Mets' save mark with help from D

Travis d'Arnaud joked that he owes James Loney "dinner for like a week," so imagine how Jeurys Familia feels. The closer was in the ninth inning of a two-run game on Friday, seeking to set a Mets franchise record for consecutive save conversions to start a season.

6/24/2016 | Cespedes OK after twisting ankle on first base

Another injury struck a familiar denizen of the trainer's room on Friday, when Yoenis Cespedes twisted his left ankle while being picked off first base in the seventh inning. After spending significant time on the ground and walking off the field alongside trainer Ray Ramirez, Cespedes returned to the field on defense and remained active for the rest of the game. He does not expect to miss any time.

6/24/2016 | deGrom tries to get back in win column vs. Teheran

Jacob deGrom's winless streak stretched to nine starts on Sunday, when Julio Teheran and the Braves defeated the Mets, 6-0, at Citi Field. Now, just six days later, the right-hander will look to avoid extending that streak to double digits when he squares off against Atlanta on Saturday at Turner Field in a rematch vs. Teheran.

6/24/2016 | Jose on the way? Sources say Mets reunion likely

A Mets reunion with former shortstop Jose Reyes has progressed over the last week from improbable to likely. Multiple sources said Friday that the Mets expect to sign Reyes to a free-agent contract as soon as Saturday afternoon, after he clears waivers at 1 p.m. ET.

6/24/2016 | Conforto, d'Arnaud prevent run with incredible DP

Once again, Michael Conforto ranged toward the wall, though this time he steered clear of impact. Catching the ball, Conforto took a beat to gather himself, coil his energy and fire. The throw was true and a video replay confirmed it: Conforto had turned a would-be game-tying sacrifice fly into an inning-ending double play Thursday, temporarily bailing out the Mets in what became a 4-3 loss to the Braves at Turner Field.

6/24/2016 | Reed not going to dwell on rough stretch

Addison Reed served up Adonis Garcia's go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning of Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Braves. In two weeks, Reed's ERA has increased more than a full run to 2.70. Both of his losses have occurred over that span.

6/23/2016 | Garcia's go-ahead blast vaults Braves past Mets

The Braves continued both their mastery of the Mets and their overall surge on Thursday, coming from behind to nab a 4-3 win over New York at Turner Field. Adonis Garcia hit a go-ahead two-run homer off Addison Reed in the eighth inning, giving the Braves their first lead of the night.

6/23/2016 | Mets to have private workout for Gurriel next week

The Mets' flirtation with Cuban free agent Yulieski Gurriel will last at least a bit longer. The team's private workout with Gurriel is scheduled for next week, according to assistant general manager John Ricco, though it is not yet settled if Gurriel will come to Citi Field or the Mets will go to him.

6/23/2016 | Collins apologizes for interaction with Horwitz

Mets manager Terry Collins apologized on Thursday for his interaction with longtime vice president of media relations Jay Horwitz, who urged Collins after Wednesday's game to share injury news about Noah Syndergaard. Collins called Horwitz a "puppy dog," told reporters that Syndergaard was headed to the hospital for testing, then walked off without taking questions.

6/23/2016 | Mets keep Thor penciled in for next start

Noah Syndergaard, whose MRI revealed nothing more than right elbow inflammation, will start as scheduled Monday against the Nationals. And Yoenis Cespedes, who has a mild left wrist sprain, could return to the starting lineup as soon as Friday.

6/23/2016 | Mets prospect Rosario promoted to Binghamton

The Mets on Thursday promoted No. 2 prospect Amed Rosario to Double-A Binghamton, after the shortstop hit .309 with three homers and eight triples in 66 games for Class A Advanced St. Lucie. The Mets originally inked Rosario to a $1.75 million deal as a 16-year-old back in 2012.
