Meet the Mets

Steven Matz and Dellin Betances were placed on the injured list and the team called up Drew Smith and Franklyn Kilome in their places.

The Mets’ eighth ranked prospect, Mark Vientos, was added to the club’s sixty-man player pool, making him eligible to be traded.

J.D. Davis left the earlier of the Mets’ two games on Sunday due to a left hip issue, but don’t worry at all, he should be fine, it’s all fine.

Much like their fans, the Mets have a lot of unmet desires going into Monday.

Tommy Milone and Jake Arrieta competed to see who could have a worse start in the Braves’ 12-10 win over the Phillies on Sunday Night Baseball.

Another Mets Legend found a new home as AJ Ramos was picked up by the Cubs shortly after being released by the Dodgers.

Mitch Moreland was traded to the San Diego Padres for two players: outfielder Jeisson Rosario and third baseman Hudson Potts

In their next move of the night, the Padres acquired catcher Jason Castro from the Angels.

Mychal Givens was sent packing by the Orioles and given a new home with the Colorado Rockies for a pair of prospects and a player to be named later.
