    McNeil took Mike Minor deep for a solo shot in the fourth inning. The homer, a rare lefty-on-lefty long ball for McNeil, was his seventh of the year and second in the last five games. McNeil has now secured at least one hit in 12 games in a row, batting .429 with three home runs, eight RBI and nine runs over that stretch.

  • Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Pitches into seventh

    Carrasco (13-4) earned the win Tuesday after he pitched 6.2 innings, surrendering two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out nine versus the Reds.

    Carrasco was able to limit the damage against him in this one to a two-run homer by Jake Fraley with one out in the top of the seventh frame. The nine strikeouts were his highest total since June 6, and he has now allowed three or fewer runs in seven straight outings. Over that stretch, Carrasco has produced a 1.69 ERA over 42.2 innings while registering four quality starts.

  • Mets' Francisco Lindor: Collects 11th steal

    Lindor went 0-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Monday's 5-1 win over the Reds.

    The shortstop extended his run-scoring streak to 11 games with the performance while swiping his 11th bag of the year. Despite failing to get a hit in this one, overall Lindor's been raking since the All-Star break, slashing .381/.459/.603 over his last 17 games with five doubles, three homers, 11 RBI and 16 runs.

  • Mets' Starling Marte: Strong showing Monday

    Marte went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a stolen base in Monday's 5-1 win over the Reds.

    He got New York on the board by taking Justin Dunn deep in the first inning, and it was all the run support Chris Bassitt would need. Marte continues to thrive in his first season with the Mets, slashing .292/.343/.477 through 16 games since the All-Star break with three of his 12 homers and two of his 14 steals on the year.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Fans eight in ninth win

    Bassitt (9-7) picked up the win in Monday's 5-1 victory over the Reds, allowing an unearned run on eight hits and a walk over eight innings. He struck out eight.

    The veteran right-hander gave the Mets the length they needed after the team's bullpen was pushed to the breaking point over the weekend against Atlanta. Bassitt tossed 114 pitches (75 strikes) in delivering his eighth quality start in his last nine outings dating back to June 14, a stretch in which he's posted a 2.19 ERA. 0.97 WHIP and 55:11 K:BB through 61.2 innings.

  • Mets' Luis Guillorme: Sitting out Monday

    Guillorme is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

    The lefty-hitting Guillorme will take a seat against a right-handed starter (Justin Dunn), but he still appears to be holding down the strong side of platoon at third base with Eduardo Escobar, who is starting Monday for only the second time in the Mets' last eight games. Guillorme, meanwhile, was included in the lineup in each of the last seven contests, a stretch in which the Mets faced six right-handers and one southpaw. He recorded only five hits in 26 at-bats during that span, but the Mets value the smooth defense Guillorme brings in the infield.

  • Mets' Tyler Naquin: Settles into strong side of platoon

    Naquin will start in left field and bat seventh in Monday's game against the Reds.

    The lefty-hitting Naquin has now drawn starts in four of the last five games in which the Mets have faced right-handed pitchers, with the righty-hitting Mark Canha drawing the lone other start in left field during that stretch. At this stage, Naquin looks like he'll handle the strong side of a platoon with Canha, making the former player the more enticing fantasy option.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Looks like short-side platoon man

    Canha isn't starting Monday against the Reds.

    Canha started in left field in the final two games of the Mets' series with Atlanta over the weekend and went 1-for-6 with a double, three RBI, a walk and a strikeout. Considering that he's on the bench against a right-hander (Justin Dunn) on Monday and has now been excluded from the starting nine four out of the past five times the Mets have faced a righty, the righty-hitting Canha looks like he'll have to settle for the short side of a platoon in the outfield with the lefty-hitting Tyler Naquin.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Promoted to Triple-A

    Butto was promoted to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Michael Meyer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.

    Butto will make his way to Triple-A after producing a 4.00 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 108 punchouts over 92.1 innings in 20 appearances with Double-A Binghamton this season. The right-hander is now one step closer to making his major-league debut.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Earns promotion to Triple-A

    The Mets promoted Baty from Double-A Binghamton to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Michael Mayer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.

    In Syracuse, Baty will be joining two of the organization's other top position prospects in catcher Francisco Alvarez and outfielder Mark Vientos. The 22-year-old Baty earned the call to Triple-A after slashing .312/.406/.544 with 41 extra-base hits and an 11.9 percent walk rate across 394 plate appearances at Binghamton.
