During the victory, there were some injury issues, namely David Wright's hamstring. It seems like Wright may be DL bound and he'll likely be replaced on the roster by Eric Campbell. Michael Cuddyer and Wilmer Flores took pitches off of their hands. Cuddyer's was the more serious of the two, though he's feeling alright.

Matt Harvey looked outstanding early on before the Phillies began to catch up with him.

David Wright told Jeurys Familia to take a breath on Monday and it helped get the closer through his 9th inning. Jenrry Mejia's return to the club's bullpen after his suspension isn't guaranteed.

Bobby Parnell and Vic Black started rehab assignments last night.

Toby Hyde looked at four Mets prospects who have one big tool but otherwise have flaws in their game.
