Meet The Mets
The Mets hung on to defeat the Padres 6-5 last night in San Diego. Yoenis Cespedes had a big night, going 3-for-4 with three RBIs and a home run. He was pulled from the game as an injury precaution after scoring on an error after hitting a triple.
Jeurys Familia is preparing to start rehabbing and throwing off a mound.
Amed Rosario is now MLB’s #2 top prospect. Dominic Smith’s stock continues to rise, going from #63 to #41.
Speaking of Rosario, Jon Heyman, who is clearly in on the ‘Don’t Be Surprised, Be Ready’ thing, reported that Rosario may be getting the call to the majors in the next week or so.
With Rosario seemingly on the rise, Jose Reyes discussed the passing of the torch with Kristie Ackert of the New York Post.
Hitting coach Kevin Long thinks that Yoenis Cespedes’s woes at the plate and in the field might be a result of his bulked-up training habits.

Despite being pulled after two innings in his last start, Stephen Strasburg is expected to make his next start.
