7/22/2014 | Ramirez looks to make splash in return to Mariners

Erasmo Ramirez will make his return to the Mariners on Tuesday after a month in Triple-A rediscovering his command. His opponent, the Mets' Jacob deGrom, has won his last two starts and seems to be getting stronger as his rookie campaign progresses.

7/22/2014 | d'Arnauds on opposite ends of highlight catches

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud fell victim to one of the most impressive catches of the summer on Monday, when Seattle's Dustin Ackley skied over the left-field wall in the sixth inning to rob him of a homer. That play came a day after d'Arnaud's brother, Chase, made a spectacular -- and somewhat similar -- catch for Cleveland's Triple-A Indianapolis affiliate.

7/22/2014 | Mets stumble to third straight loss

The Mets fell to the Mariners, 5-2, on Monday night at Safeco Field on the 10th anniversary of David Wright's big league debut. It was New York's third consecutive loss.

7/21/2014 | Wright's decade in Flushing is a rare feat

Considering David Wright is the only current Mets player who was on the team even six years ago, his decade in Flushing stands as a rather remarkable accomplishment. He is also one of a select few Major League stars harboring real potential to spend his entire career with one team.

7/21/2014 | Collins welcomes DH rule in Seattle

Some National League managers loathe traveling to American League parks, knowing their rosters are constructed without the use of a designated hitter in mind. Not Terry Collins, who has worked futilely for weeks to find consistent at-bats for Mets outfielders Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Eric Young, Chris Young and Eric Campbell.

7/21/2014 | HoJo among host of former Mets in Seattle dugout

Hugs and handshakes were prevalent during batting practice Monday in Seattle, given the extraordinary number of Mariners players and coaches with Mets ties. Seattle players Chris Young (the pitcher) and Endy Chavez both spent time in the Mets organization, along with hitting coach Howard Johnson, bullpen catcher Jason Phillips, infield coach Chris Woodward and third-base coach Rich Donnelly.

7/21/2014 | A look back at Wright's decade of greatness

Monday marked the 10-year anniversary of David Wright donning a Mets uniform for the first time. Here's a look at five of the greatest moments for arguably the greatest player in franchise history.

7/20/2014 | Mets avoid being no-hit, can't avoid walk-off loss

In what would have been an ironic twist of baseball fate, the Mets on Sunday nearly became victims of the first no-hitter in San Diego history. Instead, Daniel Murphy broke up Odrisamer Despaigne's bid with two outs in the eighth inning of a 2-1, walk-off loss that proved just as dispiriting for entirely different reasons.

7/20/2014 | Dice-K back to bullpen as Niese returns from DL

Few were surprised Sunday morning when the Mets announced that left-hander Jon Niese will return from the disabled list to start Monday's series opener in Seattle. But the announcement did result in an unfortunate byproduct for Daisuke Matsuzaka, who officially returned to the bullpen after a month and a half spent mostly as a starter.

7/20/2014 | Niese returns to Mets as Wright celebrates milestone

On Sunday, when the Mets open a three-game series in Seattle against the Mariners, David Wright will celebrate the 10th anniversary of his Major League debut, while Jon Niese will return to the mound to square off against the Mariners' Roenis Elias.

7/19/2014 | Impressive Despaigne takes on surging Mets

Odrisamer Despaigne has been impressive thus far, but when he takes to the Petco Park mound on Sunday opposite fellow right-hander Zack Wheeler, the Mets simply will be looking to add him to a list of high-caliber hurlers they've defeated.

7/19/2014 | Off night for Mets results in loss to Padres

Even if the Mets have come pretty darn close of late, winning every night is not realistic. So they could not fret too much when they lost on Saturday, 6-0, to the Padres, in a game that saw them struggle from start to finish. Dillon Gee gave up two home runs, the Mets allowed three as a team and Tyson Ross pitched seven shutout innings for the home team.

7/19/2014 | Collins staying out of trade discussions

As trade rumors become increasingly prevalent, it is natural for everyone from Sandy Alderson to the players in the clubhouse to begin thinking about them. Manager Terry Collins refuses to join that club. He has no plans to lobby for specific upgrades, instead putting the club's strategy in the GM's hands.

7/19/2014 | d'Arnaud cementing his role in five-spot

Not only is he finally establishing himself in the bigs, Travis d'Arnaud is beginning to do so in a specific offensive role, and his recent success has entrenched him in the fifth spot in the lineup.

7/18/2014 | d'Arnaud picks up Mets with ninth-inning RBI

Travis d'Arnaud hit a go-ahead single in the ninth inning Friday night, leading the Mets to a 5-4 victory over the Padres for their ninth win in 11 games. "It meant a lot," manager Terry Collins said. "It really showed the guys that they're still in that zone right now."

7/18/2014 | Gee looks to keep rolling for Mets in San Diego

Mets right-hander Dillon Gee may not be getting a mind-blowing amount of run support this season, but his Padres counterpart Saturday would love that same level of offense. All-Star righty Tyson Ross has given up two or fewer runs in each of his last five starts. Over that span, the Padres have contributed a total of eight runs to his cause.

7/18/2014 | Road trip to help GM choose course for Trade Deadline

As the non-waiver Trade Deadline approaches, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson painted the picture of a Mets team more likely to buy than sell -- should the club decide to do anything. "I think we have flexibility," he said. "It depends on where we are and how we're performing."

7/18/2014 | Niese expects to return from DL for Monday start

Mets left-hander Jon Niese "felt good" after throwing 28 pitches in a bullpen session Friday, keeping him on track to come off the disabled list and start Monday in Seattle.

7/18/2014 | Top pick Conforto set for pro debut with Brooklyn

The Mets' 2014 first-round Draft pick Michael Conforto is scheduled to make his professional debut Saturday with Class A Brooklyn. Conforto, who officially signed on July 11, hit .345 with seven home runs in 59 games in his final season with Oregon State.

7/16/2014 | Mets playing better, but at a crossroads

While plenty of things have gone New York's way since Opening Day -- the rotation's success, the bullpen's rebirth and the lineup's recent emergence, to name three on a general scale -- the Mets still sit in the shadows of playoff contention.

7/16/2014 | Murphy has 'blast' at ASG, now focused on Mets

Reality will soon return for Daniel Murphy, and that's not necessarily a bad thing; reality is pretty good for the All-Star these days. Following two off-days, the Mets will put their finest hot streak of the season -- eight wins in 10 games -- on the line this weekend in San Diego. Murphy, fresh off his first career All-Star appearance, will be a big part of that.

7/15/2014 | AL-Americans: Jeter, Trout spark victory

Mike Trout delivered the go-ahead hit and the game's first run, winning the All-Star MVP Award, but it was Derek Jeter who stole the show in his final Midsummer Classic. Jeter went 2-for-2 with a run scored to set the tone for the AL, which won home-field advantage in the World Series.

7/14/2014 | Right on Target: Stars align at Twins' home park

It's regarded as one of baseball's best parks, and Target Field will be on full display Tuesday night when the game's best players take the field for the 85th annual All-Star Game. "It's a big moment," said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. "It's a big thing for us. It's well-deserved. A lot of people have put a lot of work in here at the stadium."

7/14/2014 | Years of hard work lead Murphy to All-Star Game

National League manager Mike Matheny invited Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy to the All-Star Game for his hitting ability, unquestionably. But without an adequate glove to support those skills, Murphy never would have qualified for this stage

7/13/2014 | Syndergaard closes and hopes door re-opens

At the Futures Game, Noah Syndergaard enjoyed a businesslike ninth, working around a two-out single to preserve a one-run lead. He was joined by his new batterymate at Las Vegas, catcher Kevin Plawecki, who caught five innings for the US Team and plated the game's first run on an RBI groundout.
