Meet the Mets

The Mets may be working towards a reunion with Justin Turner.

If the Mets miss out on Yoshinobu Yamamoto, it’s possible they will wait until future offseasons to hand out any other big contracts.

New bench coach John Gibbons joined MLB Network Radio and discussed his introduction to Carlos Mendoza and the front office.

Around the National League East

The Braves swung yet another trade, acquiring Matt Carpenter and Ray Kerr (along with cash considerations) from the Padres in exchange for minor leaguer Drew Campbell.

The expectation is that the Braves will quickly deal Matt Carpenter in a separate trade.

Jesús Luzardo is drawing trade interest from multiple teams, and the Marlins may consider dealing him for offensive help.

The Good Phight argued that the Phillies meeting with Yamamoto is important even if the Japanese ace doesn’t sign with Philadephia.

Around Major League Baseball

The Dodgers and Tyler Glasnow are finalizing an extension which will complete the trade from the Rays.

The inaugural All-MLB weekend in Las Vegas is underway.

Major League Baseball has a tentative framework with Diamond Sports Groups that will ensure several teams will continue to have their 2024 games broadcast on their Bally regional sports networks.

The Yankees may pivot to pursuing Shota Imanaga if their pursuit of Yoshinobu Yamamoto is unsuccessful.

Shohei Ohtani has expressed a willingness to play in left field at some point for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers got assistance in their pitch to Ohtani in the form of a six-year-old video from the late Kobe Bryant.

Several players can remember their brushes with greatness after facing a player like Ohtani.

Former Met Max Scherzer underwent back surgery which will keep him out of game action until June or July.

Former Met Trevor Gott has signed a one-year deal with the Athletics.

The Rays are asking the city of St. Petersburg to pay for half the cost of their new ballpark, which led to a request for a name change.

The Royals have continued to add pitching, agreeing to a deal with Michael Wacha.

MLB.com looked at the teams who are most likely to make the playoffs after missing them last year.
