Meet the Mets
The young offense rose to the occasion against the Diamondbacks. Brandon Nimmo had a great night out of the leadoff spot, and Michael Conforto, Amed Rosario, and Dominic Smith all had RBIs in the win. Smith’s came on a long home right to right to extend the lead. On the mound, both Chris Flexen and Paul Sewald had solid outings, and AJ Ramos picked up the save in the win.
Chris Flexen had his strongest outing yet and wants to keep improving in the final weeks of the season.
The Mets want to take it slow with Noah Syndergaard, so his rehab got pushed back a couple of days.
Steven Matz’s surgery to repair an irritated nerve in his elbow was successful.
Jeurys Familia had a successful rehab outing and could be back with the ballclub soon. He is happy that he has been able to work his way back to the majors after being sidelined for a good portion of the season.
The Mets loaded up on young arms during their selloff, and some have shown some potential so far in their young Mets’ careers.
