Meet the Mets
This game was just about over before it got started as Steven Matz put the Mets into a 3-0 hole from which they’d never dig out of in their 7-1 loss in Arizona.
As we hover around the one-third mark of the season, the Mets most consistent starter has been none other than Steven Matz.
While Tomas Nido fulfills his role as Jacob deGrom’s personal catcher, Wilson Ramos is getting a bit antsy.
As his struggles mount, Jeurys Familia finds himself at a loss as to what he can do to remedy the situation.
After hyperextending his thumb on a swing, Dominic Smith will get his digit checked out, but he isn’t very concerned.
With another disappointing series from the Mets, Mickey Callaway’s recently-extended leash might’ve gotten shorter.
Around the National League East
Behind Max Scherzer and his 15 strikeouts over eight innings, the Nationals cruised to a 4-1 win in Cincinnati.
Around Major League Baseball
With Joey Gallo being placed on the injured list, Delino DeShields Jr. will come up to take his place.
As Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel no longer have a draft pick attached to them, teams have already turned to the pitchers’ lack of preparation as a reason for not signing them.
This Date in Mets History
The Mets have made a few noteworthy picks on June 3rd, but none were bigger than the selection of Darryl Strawberry on this date in 1980.
