Meet the Mets

Vic Black was moved off the disabled list on Sunday, but instead of New York, he'll head to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, Travis d'Arnaud and Dilson Herrera are almost ready to return to the big leagues. Both players will be rehabbing with Las Vegas this week.

Bobby Parnell is running out of rehab time, but his velocity isn't where the Mets want it to be.

The MLB Draft begins tonight on MLB Network. The Mets don't have a first-round pick thanks to the Michael Cuddyer signing, but they'll have to do their best to replenish the farm system anyway.

One of the young players waiting to be selected will be Mike Cameron's son, Daz.

While rumors of the Mets trading for another infielder are heating up, so is Eric Campbell.

Around the National League East

Braves starter Alex Wood was tossed for arguing balls and strikes, and Pittsburgh shut out Atlanta 3-0.

Home runs by Odubel Herrera and Maikel Franco proved to be the difference for the Phillies in their 6-4 win over San Francisco.

A solo blast by Adeiny Hechavarria in the 10th inning gave the Marlinsseries win over Colorado.

The Nationals lost 6-3 to the Cubs and fell back into second place in the NL East.

Around Major League Baseball

Three years after choosing him first overall in 2012, the Astros are bringing Carlos Correa to the majors.

What about the top pick in this year's Draft? The Diamondbacks know who it is, but no one else does.

The fan who was injured by a broken bat in Friday night's Red Sox game is expected to survive. In the aftermath of the incident, Ken Rosenthal reports that the MLB owners rejected the players' request for extra protective netting in previous collective bargaining negotiations.

Mike Pelfrey was brilliant on Sunday as he helped the Twins defeat the Brewers.

CC Sabathia somehow managed to get ejected from a game right after inducing an inning-ending double play.

This date in Mets history

In 1965, the Mets selected Nolan Ryan in the 10th round of the inaugural MLB Draft.
