Mets' Edwin Diaz: Picks up victory in extra innings
Diaz (4-4) earned the victory Saturday against the Reds, walking one and striking out a pair in a scoreless inning of work.
Diaz entered a 4-4 game in the 10th inning and immediately uncorked a wild pitch that advanced baserunner Jonathan India to third, followed by a walk to Jesse Winker. Diaz settled in after that, fanning Kyle Farmer and Joey Votto and inducing a Tyler Naquin lineout. Brandon Drury secured the win for Diaz and the Mets in the bottom of the inning, singling home Kevin Pillar for the walk-off victory. Diaz owns a .380 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 42.2 innings this season while nailing down 23 of 27 save chances.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Javier Baez: Belts first homer for new squad
Baez went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in his Mets debut on Saturday.
Baez brought the Mets to within 4-3 in the sixth inning when he took Wade Miley deep to left-center field. Baez, who hit cleanup, also struck out twice to give New York the full Baez experience in his debut. He'll be the regular shortstop at least as long as Francisco Lindor (oblique) remains on the shelf. Baez is slashing .248/.291/.490 with 23 homers and 67 RBI in 365 plate appearances this season. He's also stolen 13 bases in 16 attempts.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Rich Hill: Hurt by homers Saturday
Hill logged a no-decision Saturday against the Reds, going five innings and allowing four runs on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts.
Hill kept Cincinnati off the board for the first three innings until Eugenio Suarez got to him for a three-run home run in the fourth. Kyle Farmer added a solo blast in the next frame to give the Reds a 4-1 cushion. Hill has logged a pair of no-decisions in his first two starts since being acquired from Tampa Bay, allowing six earned runs over 10 innings with a 5:3 K:BB.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Anthony Banda: DFA'd by Mets
Banda was designated for assignment by the Mets on Saturday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
Banda was promoted to the majors in mid-July after being acquired from the Giants at the start of the month, and he lost his spot on the 40-man roster after surrendering eight runs (six earned) on 14 hits with a 7:1 K:BB across 7.1 innings. The left-hander could report to Triple-A Syracuse if he goes unclaimed on waivers.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Akeem Bostick: Sent to Triple-A
Bostick cleared waivers and was outrighted the Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
Bostick was designated for assignment Friday but will remain in the organization after clearing waivers. He'll return to Syracuse, where where he has a 6.21 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 29:23 K:BB over 37.2 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' J.D. Davis: Remains out of lineup
Davis isn't starting Saturday against Cincinnati.
Davis hasn't recorded a hit in his last 10 at-bats, and he'll be out of the lineup for the third time in the last five games. Jonathan Villar will start at third base and lead off.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Roel Ramirez: Clears waivers
The Mets outrighted Ramirez to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.
Ramirez will remain in the organization after he cleared waivers when the Mets designated him for assignment Tuesday. New York claimed Ramirez off waivers from the Cardinals on July 21, but he never appeared in a game for the Mets before being booted off the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Outrighted to Triple-A
The Mets outrighted Eickhoff to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.
As anticipated, Eickhoff went unclaimed off waivers after the Mets designated him for assignment for the third time this season. The veteran right-hander has been roughed up over his five outings (four starts) at the big-league level this season, posting an 8.69 ERA and 2.03 WHIP across 19.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Javier Baez: Making Mets debut Saturday
Baez will bat cleanup and play shortstop Saturday against the Reds, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Baez figures to be the Mets' everyday shortstop until Francisco Lindor (oblique) returns, at which point he'll likely fill the starting second base role. The 28-year-old had a .248/.292/.484 slash line in 91 games with Chicago this season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Not in lineup Saturday
Nimmo (hamstring) is not starting Saturday's game against the Reds, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
The center fielder exited Friday's contest after feeling a pinch in his hamstring. It's unclear whether Nimmo, who has hit .282 and drawn 20 walks since returning from a shoulder injury July 3, will be available off the bench Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: No-decision in season debut
Carrasco didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Reds, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out four.
Jonathan India greeted Carrasco with a solo homer on the first pitch he threw, but after that it was fairly smooth sailing for the right-hander as he made his long-delayed Mets debut. He was removed after 58 pitches (35 strikes), not surprising given that he didn't throw more than three innings in any of his rehab starts, but it was a very encouraging beginning to his 2021 campaign. Expect Carrasco to get stretched out further in his next outing, making him at least a candidate to qualify for a win if he gets a little more run support.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Dealing with hamstring injury
Manager Luis Rojas said Nimmo felt a "pinch" in his hamstring in the ninth inning of Friday's loss to the Reds, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Nimmo went 1-for-3 with a run, a walk and two strikeouts Friday, but he sustained his injury while making a diving catch in the ninth inning. He was able to remain the game and is considered day-to-day since Rojas described the injury as "something really, really small."... See More ... See Less
Mets' Sean Reid-Foley: Shifts to 60-day injured list
Reid-Foley (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Reid-Foley has been out since the start of July with elbow inflammation. He'll now be ineligible to return before the end of August, though whether or not he's in the mix to return at that point is unclear.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Nick Tropeano: Dropped from 40-man roster
Tropeano was designated for assignment by the Mets on Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Tropeano was removed from the active roster Monday and has now been removed from the 40-man roster as well. With a career 4.22 ERA in parts of seven major-league seasons, he could be a relatively attractive option on the waiver wire.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Akeem Bostick: Designated for assignment
Bostick was designated for assignment Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Bostick was called up for the first time Wednesday and made his big-league debut the next day, tossing a single scoreless inning of relief. Given that he had a 6.21 ERA at the Triple-A level prior to his promotion, he seemingly stands a good chance of passing through waivers unclaimed.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Trevor Williams: Optioned to Triple-A
Williams was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse by the Mets after being acquired in a trade with the Cubs on Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
The Mets presumably wanted Williams to bolster their rotation depth, but they don't actually need that depth right now. He'll wait in the minors until called upon, though the news that Jacob deGrom (forearm) suffered a setback Friday could mean Williams is needed sooner rather than later.... See More ... See Less
