In his second year in Queens, right-hander Carlos Carrasco is giving the Mets what they thought they were getting when they acquired him from Cleveland with Francisco Lindor prior to the 2021 season. On Monday night in San Diego, Carrasco was in vintage form, as he struck out 10 Padres and scattered just two runs on five hits across seven strong innings. "That was my goal, to get six-plus innings," Carrasco said. "And I was able to give them seven." With the outing, Carrasco has a solid 3.52 ERA and his seven wins are tied with Dodgers starter Tyler Anderson for the MLB lead. Carrasco had a rough go about in his first year with the Mets. After missing the first half of the season with a torn hamstring, Carrasco debuted with New York on July 30 and started 12 games the rest of the way.

Pete Alonso recently became the first Met to surpass the 50-homer plateau. Who did he pass on his way there?
With the 2022 NFL Draft officially in the books, it’s time to look back and see which of college football’s biggest stars went undrafted. Whether it was a concern about size, overall talent, an injury, how a player will transition from scheme or handle the jump to the NFL, a handful of stars from the previous college football season did not hear their name called over the three-day event.
Feeling forced to defend wrongdoing in the interest of supporting teammates sits somewhere near the top of Buck Showalter’s list of annoyances from 45 years in pro baseball. Showalter mentioned this pet peeve twice on the second day of his first regular season as Mets manager — once after Pete Alonso was left with swollen lips and a bloodied mouth in the opener and once more hours later, after Francisco Lindor needed X-rays and a concussion test. Both Mets stars were drilled with pitches near the face in back-to-back games, and it was clear entering Saturday’s series continuation where Showalter stood on Nationals’ pitchers throwing up and inside.
Travis Jankowski has made the most of his playing time with the New York Mets. The 27th or 28th man on the roster depending on how you look at it, he is getting opportunities to start in the absence of Mark Canha and Brandon Nimmo. So far this season, the speedy outfielder has gone 5 for 10 at the plate. Sure, they’re all singles. But with his ability to run and play steady defense, he isn’t a half-bad fifth outfielder to carry on the roster.

Beltran does not appear to be in trouble as no players/former players will receive punishment.
there’s still plenty of work to be done for the Wild Card, but with a series like tonight’s versus the Cubs holding the weight of a Playoff series it’s worth taking a look at which Mets are most valuable for these moments:
