  • Mets' Brett Baty: Could be available Saturday

    Baty (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers, but he said that he believes he can be available off the bench, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Baty has missed the Mets' last two games after experiencing left hamstring tightness in Tuesday's game against the Pirates. Baty admitted he isn't at full strength, but feels that he is close enough to be able to contribute off the bench if needed. Joey Wendle will start at third base Saturday and bat eighth against Dodgers right-hander Gavin Stone.

  • Mets' Francisco Alvarez: Getting more tests on left thumb

    Mets manager Carlos Mendoza revealed Saturday that Alvarez is undergoing additional testing on his left thumb, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Alvarez was diagnosed with a left thumb sprain after undergoing an MRI following Friday's game against the Dodgers. The initial scan didn't reveal any ligament tear or break, but there is concern that there is more to the sprain, and Mendoza noted that Alvarez is expected to miss more than 10 days with the injury. While Alvarez continues to be evaluated, Omar Narvaez will serve as the Mets' top catcher while Tomas Nido fills in as the backup.

  • Mets' Kolton Ingram: DFA'd by New York

    The Mets designated Ingram for assignment Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The move corresponds with the Mets calling up Tomas Nido from Triple-A Syracuse while placing Francisco Alvarez (thumb) on IL. Ingram was optioned to Syracuse in spring training, and he has allowed four runs on five hits and six walks while striking out three over five innings with the affiliate to start the season. His last appearance in the majors was last season with the Dodgers, when he posted an 8.44 ERA and 2.44 WHIP across 5.1 frames.

  • Mets' Tomas Nido: Joins big club

    The Mets called up Nido from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The move comes with the Mets placing Francisco Alvarez (thumb) on the IL. Nido has played well with Triple-A Syracuse this season, slashing .345/.345/.517 with two doubles, one home run and two RBI over 30 plate appearances. With Alvarez on the shelf, Nido will serve as the Mets' backup catcher behind Omar Narvaez.

  • Mets' Francisco Alvarez: Lands on IL

    The Mets placed Alvarez (thumb) on the 10-day injured list Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Alvarez was removed from Friday's game against the Dodgers after he stumbled on his turn to second base and appeared to jam his left thumb. He received an MRI following Friday's contest, and while Mets manager Carlos Mendoza admitted to Tim Healey of Newsday that he was "pretty concerned," Alvarez seems to have escaped with a sprained left thumb, rather than a break or ligament tear. With Alvarez on the shelf, the Mets selected Tomas Nido from Triple-A Syracuse to serve as the backup to Omar Narvaez. To make room for Nido on the 40-man roster, New York designated Kolton Ingram for assignment Saturday.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Launches third homer

    Stewart went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

    The 30-year-old drove a 96.3 mph fastball from Yoshinobu Yamamoto deep to right field in the second inning to open the scoring with a solo shot, then chipped in runs later in the contest with a sacrifice fly and a single. Stewart has hit safely in six of his last seven games, batting .368 (7-for-19) over that stretch with all three of his homers and all 10 of his RBI on the season. J.D. Martinez (back) will eventually join the roster as the full-time DH, but Stewart is doing what he can to prove he should remain in a prominent role once that happens.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Stays hot Friday

    Marte went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs scored, two RBI and a stolen base in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

    The veteran outfielder has caught fire the last couple weeks. Over the last 12 games, Marte is slashing .315/.362/.463 with two homers, four steals, seven RBI and 11 runs, and he seems to be entrenched once again as the Mets' No. 2 hitter. After a down 2023 due to lingering health issues, the 35-year-old appears primed for a bounce-back campaign.

  • Mets' Omar Narvaez: Could be set for more work

    Narvaez went 0-for-4 after replacing Francisco Alvarez (thumb) in the second inning of Friday's win over the Dodgers.

    Alvarez was headed for an MRI after the game, but per Tim Healey of Newsday, Mets manager Carlos Mendoza is "pretty concerned" about the severity of the injury. As the only other catcher on the 40-man roster, Narvaez figures to see a big spike in his playing time should Alvarez land on the IL, but that may not result in much additional fantasy value -- since 2022, the 32-year-old sports a .208/.288/.300 slash line in 467 plate appearances with only six homers. Tomas Nido, who was in camp this spring as a non-roster invitee, is batting .345 (10-for-29) for Triple-A Syracuse and would likely be promoted to take Alvarez's spot, but his career numbers in the majors aren't any better than Narvaez's performance the last few years.

  • Mets' Reed Garrett: Picks up third win

    Garrett (3-0) was credited with a blown save and a win Friday, allowing two unearned runs on one hit in the sixth inning against the Dodgers. He struck out one.

    Two errors in the inning by Joey Wendle, plus a hit by pitch from Garrett, contributed to the Mets coughing up a 4-2 lead, but they reclaimed it for good in the top of the seventh. The 31-year-old right-hander has been outstanding in a long relief role to begin the season, and his 0.00 ERA and 0.83 WHIP are supporting by a dazzling 18:3 K:BB through 9.2 innings over five appearances. It's tough to project him for many more wins given his usage, but if Garrett keeps racking up bulk strikeouts with strong ratios, he'll still have fantasy value in deeper formats.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Gathers four hits and a steal

    Bader went 4-for-5 with a double, a stolen base, one RBI and a run scored in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

    Bader drove in the second New York run with a single in the second inning before swiping a bag in the sixth. Mets center fielder has collected a hit in 11 of his past 13 games, batting .361 (17-for-47) with nine runs scored, six RBI and four steals over the span. Overall, Bader is slashing .333/.367/.421 over 60 plate appearances this the season. He is firmly cemented in the Mets lineup batting eighth or ninth every game.

  • Mets' Francisco Lindor: Tallies second homer

    Lindor went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

    Lindor cracked a 390-foot two-run homer off Daniel Hudson in the seventh inning to put the Mets ahead for good -- his first extra-base hit of the year while hitting left-handed. After opening the season with a dreadful 1-for-31 stretch, the Mets shortstop has started to look better at the plate lately. Lindor is batting .255 (12-for-47) with two homers, 10 runs scored and three RBI over his last 11 games.

  • Mets' Sean Manaea: Solid in no-decision

    Manaea did not factor into the decision Friday against the Dodgers, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out three.

    After allowing six earned runs to the Royals in his last start, Manaea pitched well Friday night against the dangerous Dodgers lineup. The Mets lefty managed to stifle the MVP trio of Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani and Freddie Freeman, as they collectively went 1-for-8 with one walk and two strikeouts. Manaea faces a much less daunting task in his next start, scheduled to be against the Giants on the road.

  • Mets' Francisco Alvarez: Undergoing MRI on thumb

    Alvarez is getting an MRI on his left thumb after leaving Friday's game against the Dodgers, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. "I'm pretty concerned. I'm not going to lie," manager Carlos Mendoza said.

    Alvarez injured his thumb in the second inning as he planted his left hand into the ground, after stumbling on his turn to second base. Anthony DiComo of MLB.com notes that Alvarez's left thumb "has taken a beating lately," and it sounds like Mendoza is resigned to being without his starting backstop for a stretch given how much pain Alvarez was in. Omar Narvaez is the only other catcher currently on the Mets' 40-man roster, although Tomas Nido is batting .345 (10-for-29) with Triple-A Syracuse.

  • Mets' Francisco Alvarez: Exits with injured thumb

    Alvarez was removed from Friday's game against the Dodgers due to a left thumb injury, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Alvarez stumbled while rounding first base during the top of the second inning and appeared to jam his left thumb while trying to regain his footing. He remained in the game to run the bases and eventually came around to score, but he was replaced behind the dish by Omar Narvaez once the Mets' defense took the field. The 22-year-old backstop will presumably undergo imaging, and the team should offer an update on his status in the near future.

  • Mets' Tyler Jay: Outrighted to Syracuse

    Jay cleared waivers Friday and was sent outright to Triple-A Syracuse, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Jay allowed one earned run in four innings during his first career stint in the majors, and he will officially remain within the organization but no longer hold a spot on the 40-man roster. The 30-year-old southpaw has thrown 5.2 scoreless innings in Triple-A this season, and he could re-earn a roster spot if he continues to find success in the minors.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Nearing rehab assignment

    Manager Carlos Mendoza said Friday that Peterson (hip) is roughly one week away from beginning a rehab assignment, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Peterson has been sidelined all season after undergoing hip surgery in November. He will need to spend a significant amount of time in the minors as he builds up to a starter's workload, but he will have plenty of room to do so, as he is not eligible to return from the IL until May 27.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Not starting Friday

    Baty (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

    Baty missed Wednesday's game against the Pirates after experiencing tightness in his left hamstring Tuesday. He did some running and agility tests ahead of Friday's game, but he has not provided a timeline on his return, per Pat Ragazzo of SI.com. Baty has started the season slashing .305/.359/.373 with one home run and nine RBI over 64 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Zack Short: One walk, one run in win

    Short went 0-for-3 with one run and one walk in the 9-1 win over the Pirates on Wednesday.

    With Brett Baty out due to a hamstring injury, Short got just his second start since April. The utility infielder's defensive versatility earned him a 26-man roster spot, and he's at least not a liability as a runner in the event he's able to get on base. Don't expect the 28-year-old to see much more than a spot start on occasion unless multiple members of the Mets' infield pick up injuries.
