Matt Harvey's rehab is up to 120 feet and he's about a month from throwing off the slope of a mound.

The Mets' lack of offensive production is a big problem, says Ken Davidoff.

Maybe Eric Campbell will be able to help out, as the Mets are set to promote the utility man to replace Josh Satin.

Jenrry Mejia will be limited to around 120 innings this season. Maybe at that point, Rafael Montero will take over for him after they follow the plan in place.

Jonathan Mayo wrote about prospects having rebound seasons and Brandon Nimmo was one of them.

Yesterday At AA

Lucas Duda's stomach bug put him in the hospital yesterday.

Aaron Yorke previewed the series with the Phillies.

Robin Ventura hit some grand slams as Matthew Callan continues his look at the 1999 Mets.

Around the NL East

The Braves won 3-2 on Freddie Freeman's walkoff hit. Meanwhile, they're looking at alternatives to Dan Uggla at second base. Ouch.

This is weird. Jose Fernandez got blasted by the Padres, of all teams, as the Marlins fell 10-1.

Doug Fister got rocked by the A's in his Nationals debut, as they lost 8-0.

Around the Majors

Looks like Brandon Belt is going to miss six weeks with a broken thumb.

Madison Bumgarner allowed a home run to Yasiel Puig, who flipped his bat. This upset Bumgarner and the two exchanged words. Maybe you shouldn't give up a dinger to Puig, Madison.

Todd Frazier hit the longest home run of the year last night.

Tino Martinez is getting a plaque in Monument Park. Huh?

Bruce Bochy says that batting average is way overrated and that OBP and slugging percentage are more important. What a nerd!
