Meet the Mets
The Blue Jays defeated the Mets on Tuesday night 8-6. After jumping out to a 5-0 lead, the Mets bullpen was not able to secure the win for Zack Wheeler as they allowed six runs in just 1.1 innings work. The Mets’ offense was fueled by the long ball as Wilmer Flores, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Devin Mesoraco all hit home runs.
Devin Mesoraco passed the concussion test following Tuesday nights game but will continue to be evaluated.
Both Noah Syndergaard and Jason Vargas threw simulated games on Tuesday in Port St. Lucie. Synergaard’s next step will be to make a rehab start while Vargas will need to test his calf by running.
Yoenis Cespedes ran at 75 percent intensity and experienced no issues afterwards.
Peter Alonso, the Mets’ number two prospect, will play in the Futures Game on July 15.
In his return to Toronto, Jose Bautista was given a standing ovation by Blue Jays fans.
