Meet the Mets

Michael Cuddyer will have his knee examined by doctors. The Mets have insisted the injury was not serious, but Cuddyer has been hampered by the injury for some time.

There has been no change in the time tables for David Wright and Travis d'Arnaud. Wright had intended to begin baseball activities this week, while d'Arnaud remains in an elbow brace.

The Mets are interested in Ben Zobrist, but so are at least seven other teams. In addition, Oakland is in no rush to deal him.

First base prospect Dominic Smith was named the Florida State League player of the month. Over the course of 26 games during the month of June, he batted .352/.397/.472.

Around the NL East

The Phillies lost to the Dodgers 5-0. Clayton Kershaw dominated the Phillies lineup with 13 strikeouts over the course of a complete game shutout.

The Brewers defeated the Braves by a score of 6-5. The victory came on the strength of a three run home run by Carlos Gomez in the eighth inning.

The Marlins fell to the Red Sox 6-3. Tom Koehler went six innings and allowed four runs for the fish.

The Nationals game against the Reds was postponed due to rain.

Around MLB

The Padres might make Justin Upton and Craig Kimbrel available. Both players were acquired via trade this past offseason.

Buster Posey is dealing with hamstring tightness. He was held out of yesterday's series finale against the Mets.

Alex Gordon suffered a seemingly severe groin injury. The injury occurred while chasing a ball at the warning track, and resulted in him being carted off of the field.

Jason Hammel exited the game with hamstring tightness. The Cubs pitcher is not expected to miss a turn in the rotation due to time off for the All-Star Game.

This year's home run derby participants were revealed.

This Date in Mets History
