Morning Briefing: Mets Begin 10-Game Road Trip

Good Morning, Mets fans! Matt Harvey‘s (0-1, 4.80 ERA) last few starts haven’t been that encouraging, but he’ll hope to reverse that trend against a third-place Braves team today. The Braves scheduled starter, Anibal Sanchez, suffered a hamstring injury yesterday and they have not announced his replacement yet. In yesterday’s game, Tanner Roark quieted the Mets for the first six...

Callaway Says Six-Man Rotation Possible When Vargas Returns

Today, New York Mets’ manager Mickey Callaway alluded to the possibility of using a six-man rotation whenever Jason Vargas returns from the disabled list. In a quote from Tim Britton of The Athletic, Callaway said, “It’s one of the many decisions we have to make when looking at it,” referring to the possibility of simply adding Vargas to the current Mets’ rotation.

Zack Wheeler and the 100-pitch barrier

Zack Wheeler followed up his strong first start with an outing that’s a little tough to categorize. The final line shows it as a bare minimum Quality Start (6 IP, 3 ER) with a Bill James Game Score of 45. My opinion is that Wheeler pitched better than what that might imply and while he struggled some with his usual issue of nibbling, he was beat more by bloops and bleeders than...

Brandon Nimmo is a really nice problem to have

Do the Mets really have an outfield logjam? The late blooming Brandon Nimmo has looked fantastic this season and really seems to be rounding into a strong player and a very effective leadoff hitter. Problem is, the Mets have three clear starting outfielders in Yoenis Cespedes, Jay Bruce and Michael Conforto, not to mention a gold glove reserve in Juan Lagares. Teams have been inquiring...

Steven Matz’s starts have been a bit of a mixed bag so far in 2018

Matz has a decent ERA and some interesting peripherals in this young season. Coming off what was easily his worst major league season to date, Steven Matz has fared much better in his first three starts of 2018, at least judging by his 3.77 ERA. That’s not vintage Matz, the version of him that showed up in 2015 and lasted through several months of the 2016 season before his performance...

Will Mets be able to pry JT Realmuto from Marlins?

According to a recent report, the New York Mets have inquired about trading for Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto. The Mets have been bitten by the injury bug at the catcher position, to put it mildly.

NL Notes: Harvey's struggles; Forsythe's injury; Murphy's extended spring training

Mets right-hander Matt Harvey opened the season with five scoreless innings of one-hit ball back on April 3, but the former ace hasn’t fared nearly as well in two starts since then. Harvey yielded four earned runs in five frames in each of those outings – including in a loss to the Brewers on Saturday – and now there’s some question as to whether he’s a lock to remain in the team...

The New York Mets had an abysmal 2017 season. A year after making the NL Wild Card game, the team finished 70-92, good for fourth place in the NL East.
