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