Steven Matz told WOR that doctors cleared him to proceed with his normal offseason regimen.

To thin their crowded outfield, the Mets have expressed a preference to trade Jay Bruce over Curtis Granderson or Michael Conforto.

Sandy Alderson indicated the Mets are unlikely to pursue a “top-level” center fielder this offseason.

FanGraphs examined whether we can expect more pull power from Conforto as he ages.

Broadcaster Gary Cohen talked about his new contract with SNY and the Yoenis Cespedes signing.

Around the NL East

The Braves added yet another veteran pitcher, acquiring Jaime Garcia from the St. Louis Cardinals for minor league pitchers, including former Mets farmhand John Gant.

Here’s how the Marlins’ signing of Edinson Volquez affects Marcell Ozuna.

The Good Phight broke down Maikel Franco’s first full season in the majors.

The Nationals and Jose Lobaton avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year pact.

Around the Majors

Grant Brisbee graded the changes made to the league’s CBA.

Much like the Mets, the Cubs have too many outfielders after inking Jon Jay to a one-year deal.

Dexter Fowler would be a great fit for the Tigers, but the asking price may be too high.
