Is David Wright hurt or is he just playing poorly? He admitted yesterday that his shoulder is not healthy but the captain  won't blame his injury for his slump.

Bartolo Colon is still drawing interest from teams and the Mets still have a few days to move him. With no space on the current roster, Daisuke Matsuzaka is in limbo. Noah Syndergaard is also in limbo, though Sandy Alderson would like him to get some big league experience in September.

The Mets played last night without Wright, Daniel Murphy, Vic Black, and Josh Edgin. Murphy is day to day with a calf issue, while Black and Edgin both could be out today as well. Black has done a great job of stranding runners this season.

Six Mets prospects will head to the Arizona Fall League this winter including Brandon Nimmo and Matt Reynolds. Reynolds appears to be an intriguing option for the organization at shortstop going forward.

Travis d'Arnaud was lost in the minors and a call to his dad helped him get back on track.

In Tommy John surgery news, Bobby Parnell won't get on a mound until 2015. Meanwhile, Jeremy Hefner is going to wait a little longer before deciding his next step.

Sandy Alderson says that the Mets are uninterested in swapping PCL teams if they can't find an International League AAA affiliate.

Around the NL East

The Phillies beat the Nationals 4-3, while the Marlins fell to the Angels 8-2.

Around the Majors

The Mariners have given GM Jack Zduriencik a contract extension.

Andrew McCutchen re-aggravated his ribcage injury on this catch against the wall.

Five good months doesn't erase the last five years, says Giancarlo Stanton about the Marlins organization. Grant Brisbee says that Stanton's excellent season is punching his ticket out of Miami.

Royals manager Ned Yost said something dumb and one of the team's beat writers tore him apart for it.

Yesterday At AA

Are we seeing the real Travis d'Arnaud? Let's hope so!

Steve Sypa looked at International Free Agents Yoan Moncada and Jorge Despaigne.

Aaron Yorke previewed the Mets series with the Atlanta Braves.
