Everyone’s favorite smiling ball of joy, Brandon Nimmo, was activated from the 60-day injured list.

In the least surprising news in baseball history, Brandon Nimmo was in a jolly mood upon his return.

As the first of September came and went, the Mets expanded their roster by activating Tomas Nido and calling up the trio of Tyler Bashlor, Daniel Zamora, and Sam Haggerty.

Video of the news being broken to Haggerty that he would be going to the major leagues was quickly posted and spread on Twitter.

In a year full of regretful moves, Wilson Ramos is one that Brodie Van Wagenen and co. wouldn’t change.

A bad shoulder for Brad Brach has been keeping the reliever on the sidelines for most of the past week.

Around the National League East

A quartet of dingers was enough to make the Marlins founder as the Nationals secured a 9-3 victory over Miami.

Behind the strength of Freddie Freeman’s pair of homers, the Braves were able to take down the White Sox in a 5-3 triumph.

In their win, the Nationals became the first National League team since the 1969 Astros to have three pitchers with at least 200 or more strikeouts each.

Around Major League Baseball

Justin Verlander tossed the third no-hitter of his career and his second against the Toronto Blue Jays.

While all no-hitters are impressive, the performance of Justin Verlander was a step above the pack.

To the cheers of thousands, Carlos Carrasco made his return to the mound after battling leukemia. The Indians starter took to Instagram to thank all those that have supported him on his way back to the mound.

Miles Mikolas was clearly not a fan of Freddy Galvis walking over the mound as the Cardinals and the Reds found themselves in a bench-clearing ruckus.

Barely a year after being named an All-Star, Jeremy Jeffress was released by the Brewers.

A torn labrum has ended the season of Giants reliever Reyes Moronta.

The Toronto Blue Jays acquired a pair of minor leaguers from the Tampa Bay Rays to officially complete the Eric Sogard trade.

Dodgers Prospect Gavin Lux will be called up and make the start at second base tomorrow for Los Angeles.

This Date in Mets History

On this date in 1965, Casey Stengel became the first person in Mets history to have his number retired.
