Meet the Mets
The 2018 New York Mets won a ballgame in June! Seth Lugo was magnificent and held the Yankees scoreless through six strong innings. Robert Gsellman entered after him, and despite Jose Reyes’s best efforts to throw the game away, Gsellman preserved the 2-0 lead. The Mets’s lead came from one swing of the bat by Todd Frazier and Anthony Swarzak nailed down the victory in the ninth.
After the game Adrian Gonzalez was released and Jose Lobaton was designated for assignment.
Seth Lugo was sensational and has proven he belongs in the rotation.
Jose Reyes is just embarrassing himself at this point and doesn’t deserve the sendoff the Mets are so concerned about.
Yoenis Cespedes was sent to Port St. Lucie to continue his rehab after suffering a setback with his injury.
After such an abysmal losing streak something had to change and Gonzalez was the one who drew the short straw.
Unfortunately, the injury bug has also ravaged the Las Vegas 51s.
The Mets signed pitcher Ian Krol to a minor league deal.
