Matt Harvey made his return to the mound yesterday, tossing 15 pitches in the bullpen. Things got a little weird between Harvey and the Mets but the righthander is a huge key to the organization's rise back to prominence.

The trade deadline came and went on Thursday without a trade and Sandy Alderson defended the team's decision to stand pat. David Wright realizes just how important this winter will be for the team.

Great piece in the Post on Jacob deGrom's transformation from light-hitting college shortstop to Mets top of the rotation starter.

Toby Hyde updated the Mets minor league stocks for July. One of the players there is Dilson Herrera, who may just be the team's second baseman of the future. Michael Conforto has been in the spotlight playing in Brooklyn but has kept his cool and just hit.

John Sickels has a prospect note on utility man Eric Campbell.

Yesterday At AA

Aaron Yorke previewed the Mets series with the Giants.

Around the NL East

The Phillies beat the Nationals 2-1 yesterday, while the Marlins fell to the Reds 5-2 in Jarred Cosart's debut, and the Braves were rocked by the Padres 10-1.

Around the Majors

At The Good Phight, David Cohen is fed up and says that Ruben Amaro needs to be fired from his job as the Phillies' General Manager after the team stood pat at Thursday's trade deadline.

Casey Janssen and Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays are upset that the team didn't make any moves.

The Rays may have turned down a better deal for David Price from the Pirates in order to take players closer to the big leagues.

Big blow for the Giants, as Matt Cain is likely to have season ending surgery to clean bone chips out of his elbow.

Carlos Gonzalez left yesterday's Rockies game after re-aggravating his injured ankle.

John Lackey says he will honor his 2015 contract despite it only being worth the big league minimum due to a strange injury clause.

The A's released Jim Johnson, eating the $10 million he was owed this season.
