Before the today’s game the New York Mets placed infielder Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list due to an intercostal strain and subsequently activated reliever Scott Atchison.
However, when Atchison came in to pitch the bottom of the 7th inning, he appeared to pull a muscle in his leg while tossing his warmup pitches.
Atchison was immediately pulled from the game and limped to the dugout and and into the clubhouse before throwing an official pitch. He was replaced by Brandon Lyon.
The ailing Atchison was returning to the lineup for the first time since being removed from his appearance in St. Louis on May 13 due to numbness in his fingers. It turns out the 37-year-old reliever was suffering the effects of a bone spur in his throwing arm. The growth was placing pressure on a nerve and causing inflammation in his elbow. Although he has been reactivated, the spur is still present and may need to be removed in the future. Atchison has opted to pitch through the spur on top of the ...

Some Mets’ fans have shrugged at the idea of acquiring the services of Eric Young Jr. (traded for Collin McHugh on Tuesday night) from the Colorado Rockies, saying he is nothing more than filler with no real upside and one who will fit right in with the Mets’ under-qualified outfield.
The naysayers have a point. After all, Young’s career slash line is a modest .261/.329/.342...
Fred Wilpon spoke with Steven Marcus of Newsday on Monday and said he is confident in Sandy Alderson’s plan for the Mets. The Mets owner added that things will improve now that the big unproductive contracts are coming off the books.

Normally when a pitcher throws a complete game on the road, it means they won. However, Mets fans know better than to think they are anything close to normal.
One night after the Mets continued the downward spiral of humanity by celebrating a game they didn’t deserve to win, Karma reared her ugly head and forced some the Mets’ own medicine down their throat.
Dillon Gee had perhaps...

Been really tough to watch the Mets this year as all us die hards know. Even for me I just cant sit night after night watching the Mets score one or 2 runs with 5 hits. ZZZZZ .

Matt Harvey didn’t throw a no-hitter against the Braves on Tuesday, but he did almost do that, not allowing a hit until the bottom of the seventh. It’s not that Harvey relied entirely on the strikeout — of the batters he faced, 13 didn’t whiff. But then, of the batters he faced, 13 did whiff, and Harvey’s season rate is verging on 30%. Matt Harvey was already good a year...
