MLB: New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

Sunday was not a fun day as the Mets dropped their third straight game to the Milwaukee Brewers by the score of 3-2. Amed Rosario whacked three hits, Juan Lagares hit a home run, and the bullpen shut down the Brewers for four innings, but that’s all there was to cheer about as Jason Vargas departed the game with a hamstring injury.

Just 50 pitches deep into his start, Jason Vargas experienced some mild hamstring tightness and was promptly replaced by a pinch hitter.

In more rotation news, Steven Matz was unable to throw in his recent bullpen session and is heading back to New York to get a nerve issue in his elbow checked out.

Despite his exit, Vargas does not plan on having an MRI on his leg.

When it comes to the subject of his plate discipline, Brandon Nimmo and Mickey Callaway might have to meet somewhere in the middle.

For the Mets, the team’s only consistency might be in their plunge towards mediocrity.

Former Mets farmhand L.J. Mazzilli signed a contract with the Long Island Ducks.

Only days after being released by the Mets, Travis d’Arnaud has quickly found a home for himself in Los Angeles with the Dodgers.

Around the National League East

Thanks to a pair of runs in the top of the 10th inning, the Atlanta Braves took down the Marlins to the tune of a 3-1 score.

A five-run sixth inning was enough for the Phillies to secure a 7-1 victory over the Washington Nationals.

Matt Adams is the most recent member of the ever-expanding Washington Nationals injured list.

Around Major League Baseball

Almost three years after his last pitch in the majors, 2007 Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy has officially hung up his spikes.

Khris Davis departed the Athletics’ game early after colliding with a wall and injuring his hip in the process.

Brian Cashman confirmed that Luis Severino will remain on the injured list until, at least, the All Star break.

Alex Cora and Xander Bogaerts both declined their invitations to visit the White House with the Red Sox.

With their snazzy vintage uniforms, the Reds socked three home runs on three consecutive pitches.

In fashion news, Derek Dietrich sported a fine mustache to compliment his special uniform.

When it comes to his recent power struggles, Miguel Cabrera believes that it has more to do with who’s behind him than his own bat.
