Meet the Mets
The Mets continued their west coast swing in Seattle last night, the hometown of one Michael Conforto. Whether it was the thrill of playing in front of his family and friends, or just an ongoing run of great play, Conforto ran rampant in Seattle, hitting two home runs and helping lead the Mets to a 7-5 victory.
Neil Walker was activated, but the Mets lost T.J. Rivera to a partial UCL tear.
There’s a possibility that Rivera could return this season, as both Juan Lagares and Seth Lugo managed to avoid surgery after being diagnosed with partial UCL tears.
The Mets also activated Brandon Nimmo and optioned Tyler Pill.
