Meet the Mets

Count Amed Rosario among those who’d like to see the team bring free agent Jose Reyes back.

The Mets are tendering contracts to Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler. They’re projected to earn $5.9 million and $1.9 million, respectively.

The team and Jay Bruce have mutual interest in reuniting, but such an agreement would come with its share of obstacles.

The Mets are one of the teams strongly tied to Mike Minor, arguably the best available lefty reliever on the free agent market.

Around the National League East

The Braves shipped reliever Jim Johnson and international pool space to the Los Angeles Angels for minor league hurler Justin Kelly.

The Marlins appear on the brink of a trade that would send Giancarlo Stanton to the Giants for three young players and a quarter of a billion dollars in salary relief.

The Good Phight reflected on first baseman/outfielder Brock Stassi’s emotional path to the majors.

Around Major League Baseball

Brandon Laird, former major leaguer and one-time teammate of Shohei Ohtani, says the Japanese outfielder and pitcher is even better than advertised.

The Diamondbacks traded for Rays reliever Brad Boxberger, sending back minor league righty Curtis Taylor.

There’s no shortage of teams interested in starter Yu Darvish. Grant Brisbee projects he’ll end up with the Twins on a five-year, $120 million pact.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

There are plenty of second basemen available on the trade market, and the Mets are in on practically all of them.

This Date in Mets History

In a three-way trade in 1998, general manager Steve Phillips turned Todd Hundley into Armando Benitez and Roger Cedeño.
