Top Jeff McNeil News

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Bangs out three doubles Wednesday

    McNeil went 3-for-5 with three doubles and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Nationals.

    The 30-year-old has caught fire over the last week. McNeil has hit safely in six straight games with four multi-hit performances, batting .462 (12-for-26) over that stretch with five doubles, a homer, three RBI and four runs. He's typically been hitting in the bottom half of the order this season, somewhat limiting his fantasy upside, but McNeil is capable of staying hot for a prolonged period and pushing his .302/.361/.430 slash line on the season even higher.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Snaps homer drought Saturday

    McNeil went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in a 4-0 victory versus Miami on Saturday.

    McNeil put the Mets on the board with his solo shot to right field in the third inning. The long ball was his first since June 16 -- a span of 26 games. McNeil went deep 23 times in 2019 (his first full big-league campaign) but has since hit only 16 homers over 259 contests across the past three seasons.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Not starting Saturday

    McNeil isn't starting Saturday's game against the Padres.

    McNeil is getting a chance to reset after he went 0-for-10 with a run and a walk over the last three games. Luis Guillorme will take over at the keystone and bat seventh.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Starting in left field in return

    McNeil (personal) was reinstated from the paternity list Thursday and will start in left field and bat fifth in his return to the lineup for the Mets' series finale with the Cubs.

    McNeil rejoined the Mets in Chicago after he missed the entire three-game series in Atlanta while observing the birth of his child. Though he'll be filling in for a resting Mark Canha in Thursday's contest, McNeil is expected to see most of his opportunities at second base moving forward, especially with Starling Marte (groin) back in the lineup in right field following a four-game absence.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Will return from paternity list

    McNeil (personal) will be activated from the paternity list ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Cubs, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    McNeil will return to action after missing three contests while observing the birth of his son. Since the beginning of July, the 30-year-old has struggled to a .219 average with two doubles, two RBI and five runs, but he'll look to turn that around in the Mets' final series ahead of the All-Star break as they take on the Cubs in a four-game set.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Placed on paternity list

    McNeil was placed on the paternity list Monday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    As expected, McNeil will be away from the team for up to a few days while spending time with his family. Travis Jankowski (hand) was activated from the 10-day injured list Monday and will replace McNeil on the active roster.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Likely set for paternity leave

    McNeil is expected to be placed on the paternity list prior to Monday's game in Atlanta, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The Mets have infielder Kramer Robertson up from Triple-A Syracuse as a member of the taxi squad, so he'll presumably be added to the roster Monday in a corresponding move if McNeil is deactivated. Assuming McNeil takes the maximum three days away from the team while on paternity leave, he would be in line to rejoin the Mets for their four-game series in Chicago that begins Thursday. McNeil's upcoming absence should open up more opportunities for Luis Guillorme at second base.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Needs paternity list soon

    McNeil is expected to land on the paternity list soon, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    McNeil's wife is due to give birth, so he will miss a small handful of games. It's unclear exactly when that will happen, however. McNeil is in the lineup Friday against the Marlins, but it's possible he misses the rest of the weekend series.

    McNeil (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Not starting Tuesday

    McNeil (hamstring) will sit Tuesday against the Astros.

    McNeil exited Monday's game against the Marlins with right hamstring tightness and will be on the bench for at least one game. He's considered merely day-to-day after undergoing an MRI, per Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News, but the Mets have an off day Thursday, so it wouldn't be all that surprising if McNeil were on the bench again Wednesday. That way, he could rest for three full days. Luis Guillorme starts at second base in McNeil's absence.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Considered day-to-day

    McNeil's hamstring injury is merely considered a day-to-day issue for now, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    McNeil exited Monday's game against Miami with right hamstring tightness, but it appears as though he's avoided a more serious issue. It's possible the injury turns out to be worse than originally expected after further tests, in which case J.D. Davis and Dominic Smith could see their roles expand.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Exits with hamstring tightness

    McNeil was removed from Monday's game against the Marlins due to right hamstring tightness, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    McNeil went 1-for-2 with a double and a run to begin Monday's game, but he was replaced defensively in the top of the fifth inning. The severity of the issue isn't yet clear. If McNeil misses additional time, J.D. Davis and Dominic Smith are candidates for increased playing time.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: On base three times Sunday

    McNeil went 1-for-2 with two walks, a double and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

    It's the first time since April 17 that McNeil has drawn multiple free passes in a contest, and he also extended his current hitting streak to seven games. The 30-year-old remains a fixture in the Mets' lineup as he bounces between second base and left field, with the latter being Sunday's assignment, and he's slashing a stellar .353/.431/.471 through 15 games in June with three doubles, a homer, six runs and seven RBI.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Plates both runs in loss

    McNeil went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Wednesday's 10-2 loss to the Brewers.

    McNeil tagged Brewers starter Corbin Burnes for a solo shot in the fourth inning and an RBI single in the sixth, but that was the extent of the Mets' run production. It's been a solid June for McNeil, who is 14-for-40 (.350) in 11 games this month. The versatile 30-year-old is up to a .324/.375/.460 slash line with four homers, 31 RBI, 29 runs scored, two stolen bases and 15 doubles through 60 contests in 2022.
