  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Returns to lineup

    Stewart (wrist) will bat fifth and play right field Saturday against the Phillies.

    Stewart had been out since Tuesday while dealing with a sore wrist. He's hit .264/.342/.557 in 50 games for the Mets this season and could get plenty of opportunities over the final eight games.

  • Mets' Francisco Alvarez: Remains on bench

    Alvarez will sit for the second straight game Saturday against the Phillies.

    One would expect a 71-83 team to maximize at-bats for its 21-year-old catcher of the future down the stretch, but it's instead been 31-year-old impending free agent to start three of the last four games behind the plate. Perhaps the Mets simply don't want to tax Alvarez's knees too much at the end of a long season. The rookie's .213/.286/.433 season slash line is good for a 97 wRC+, a perfectly acceptable mark for a catcher, but he's managed just a .171/.269/.291 line (60 wRC+) since the start of August, which suggests he could use a break.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Punches out six in no-decision

    Megill did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk over six innings against the Phillies. He struck out six.

    Megill was cruising through five scoreless innings before running out of steam in the sixth, and his scoreless outing was undone by a J.T. Realmuto three-run homer. The 28-year-old righty has struggled to the tune of a 4.92 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 98:56 K:BB over 119 innings this season. Megill is currently scheduled to make his last start of the year against the Phillies at home.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Completes breakout season

    Scott posted a 2.47 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and a 29.4 K-BB% in 62 innings across 12 starts for Double-A Binghamton.

    The 6-foot-4, 215-pound righty put up outstanding numbers while building up to a career-high 87.2 innings, primarily at High-A and Double-A. Scott missed almost four weeks in the second half with an undisclosed injury, but he was able to return Sept. 6 and struck out eight with zero walks in 4.2 innings across two September appearances. He is a little older than the typical Double-A pitching prospect, turning 25 in the first half of next season, but Scott has a legitimate mid-90s fastball and a plus slider. His changeup is a work in progress, but his excellent control could allow his whole arsenal to play up.

  • Mets' Jeff Brigham: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Mets optioned Brigham to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

    Brigham had allowed at least one earned run in each of his last four appearances. Peyton Battenfield is joining the Mets' bullpen in a corresponding roster move.

  • Mets' Peyton Battenfield: Recalled from Syracuse

    The Mets recalled Battenfield from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

    Battenfield was claimed off waivers from the Guardians on Sept. 2 and will join the Mets' major-league bullpen mix ahead of Friday's game at Philadelphia. Jeff Brigham has been optioned out in a corresponding roster move.

  • Mets' Francisco Alvarez: Not in lineup Friday

    Alvarez is out of the lineup Friday versus the Phillies.

    Alvarez has been sharing starts this week with Omar Narvaez, who is behind the plate and batting ninth for the Mets on Friday at Philadelphia. Alvarez went 0-for-3 with an RBI sac fly in Thursday's series-opening loss.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Out again with sore wrist

    Stewart (wrist) remains out of the lineup Friday at Philadelphia.

    Stewart is on the Mets' bench for a third straight game due to lingering wrist discomfort. Rafael Ortega, Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil will start across the outfield Friday versus the Phillies and right-hander Taijuan Walker.

  • Mets' Kevin Parada: Headed to AFL

    Parada will play in the Arizona Fall League this October, Jonathan Mayo and Sam Dykstra of report.

    The 22-year-old backstop will headline the Mets' contingent at this year's AFL after slashing .265/.340/.447 through 87 games at High-A Brooklyn in 2023, although he stumbled to a .185/.250/.389 line during a 14-game stint in Double-A to close out the season. Parada has Francisco Alvarez blocking his path to a big-league starting job in Queens, but neither player is a defensive standout -- whichever one improves behind the plate the most over the next couple years could end up being the team's long-term answer at catcher.

  • Mets' Francisco Lindor: First 30-steal campaign

    Lindor went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two stolen bases in Thursday's loss to the Phillies.

    The shortstop's bat has slowed down in September -- Lindor's slashing .257/.325/.392 through 83 plate appearances -- but he's remained busy on the basepaths with four steals in his last four games, giving him 30 in a season for the first time in his career. Lindor still has an outside shot at a 30-30 campaign, but he would need four homers in the Mets' final nine contests to pull it off.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Homer shy of cycle

    McNeil went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple, an RBI, two runs scored and a steal in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Phillies.

    McNeil wound up a homer shy of a cycle Thursday, as he tallied multiple hits for the third time in his last four games. He's also gone seven straight games without striking out, going 10-for-28 (.357) in that span. McNeil's slash line is now up to .271/.334/.381 through 631 plate appearances this season with 10 homers, 75 runs scored, 54 RBI and a career-high 10 steals.

  • Mets' David Peterson: Punches out seven

    Peterson did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks over four innings against the Phillies. He struck out seven.

    Peterson continues to rack up impressive strikeout totals, logging 37 in his last five starts (26.2 innings). However, he'd wind up with a no-decision Thursday, allowing a pair of runs in the first inning and another two in the third, as the left-hander remains winless since July 27. Overall, Peterson is 3-8 with a 5.37 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 120:46 K:BB across 104 innings this season. He'll likely make one more start this season, currently scheduled for next week against Miami.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Remains out Thursday

    Stewart (wrist) isn't in the Mets' lineup Thursday against the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Stewart was seen with an ice wrap around his wrist Wednesday, and the issue is apparently still severe enough to hold him out of Thursday's contest. Tim Locastro, Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil will make up the Mets' outfield while Stewart recovers.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Homers among three hits

    Nimmo went 3-for-4 with a double, a solo home run, two additional runs and a walk against Miami in an 8-3 win Wednesday.

    Nimmo has been scorching in September, batting .346 through 18 contests. He's gone deep five times during the month so far, though he hadn't homered in his previous 10 games before Wednesday. Nimmo has already established a career high with 24 homers on the campaign, and he needs one more RBI to tie the career-best mark of 64 he recorded last season.
