Meet the Mets
While the Mets played nine innings against Miami on Sunday, the game was essentially over after the Marlins’ five-run second inning against Jordan Yamamoto.
Jacob deGrom’s return from the injured list will come on Tuesday at Citi Field against the Rockies.
Jordan Yamamoto’s departure from Sunday’s game after the fourth inning was thought to be because of soreness, but Luis Rojas said that wasn’t exactly why he was pulled.
With a fresh, fancy repaired nose, Kevin Pillar is progressing towards a return and could start light activities as soon as this afternoon.
A stiff neck has put a bit of a hold on J.D. Davis’ comeback in Syracuse, but it shouldn’t be enough to totally derail him...right? Yes? Please?
In his next start, Noah Syndergaard’s rehab will take him to Syracuse. Actually, the St. Lucie Mets tweeted that he will be there on his next start so I don’t know, I’m just the dude who types the news.
Now that I have thoroughly confused you, I can reveal that Syndergaard will make one more start in St. Lucie before an evaluation determines whether he moves up to Syracuse.
Though his MRI was better than anticipated, Tommy Hunter is not back to throwing quite yet.
Around the National League East
Hitting Matt Harvey hard and early, the Nationals completed a sweep of the Orioles with a 6-5 win over the birds on Sunday.
Austin Riley continued his stretch of being offensively insane and whacked two homers in the Braves’ 7-1 victory against the Pirates.
A right ankle sprain saw the Nationals put outfielder Victor Robles on the 10-day injured list.
Around Major League Baseball
Have you ever wanted to see Todd Frazier, Edwin Jackson, Matt Kemp, and Olympic Silver Medalist Speed Skater Eddy Alvarez play baseball against representatives from around the world? Well, good news, they are all on the United States Olympic Qualifier team.
Of course, many big names can and will be moved around when July 31st approaches, but none may be bigger than Kris Bryant.
Tony La Russa is highly respected around baseball and is literally a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, but unfortunately for him, that can only make up for so much.
I’m sure you’ve heard the older crowd complaining for most of the last century that baseball is becoming unwatchable, but do they finally have a point?
An internal oblique strain will shelve Cleveland’s Franmil Reyes for 5-7 weeks.
Mookie Betts’ left shoulder kept him out of Sunday’s lineup, but manager Dave Roberts isn’t overly concerned.
I don’t know what he felt like before, but Chris Sale is beginning to feel like a pitcher again.
