Meet the Mets
If you were sleeping, the Mets played one of the craziest games of baseball in recent memory. Down 8-2, the Mets clawed their way back in the late innings, including a seven run 8th inning to take the lead twice, only to have Edwin Diaz blow a save in the bottom of the ninth, as the Mets lost the game 13-12. The rubber match of the three-game series will be this afternoon as the Mets look to avoid losing their second series of the season.
Jacob deGrom was at Citi Field on Tuesday long tossing up to 100 feet. It’s possible deGrom could throw from a mound this weekend during a bullpen session.
As deGrom continues to progress, the Mets have opted to move his rehab to New York.
Tylor Megill is also long tossing and is a little bit closer to throwing a bullpen pitching coach Jeremy Hefner said.
The Mets game against the Angels on June 12 has been moved to ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball.
Trevor May tweeted that his rehab is going well and he will undergo imaging soon to see if he’s able to start ramping up his throwing.
