Meet the Mets
The Mets rolled into Atlanta last night and soundly defeated the Braves thanks to a grand slam off the bat of Curtis Granderson. The game included a rain delay in the eighth inning, which was when the Mets pulled Yoenis Cespedes from the game because he had aggravated his bruised leg, which he suffered last week while jumping into the Citi Field stands to try and catch a fly ball.
The Mets also announced today that they were optioning Rafael Montero to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room for Jacob deGrom on the active roster. deGrom will start Sunday's series finale against the Braves in his return from the emergency family leave list.
The Mets take on the Braves again tonight with Steven Matz on the mound.
