Mets Morning News: Bruce goes yard twice, two Mets leave with injuries

Mets Morning News: Bruce goes yard twice, two Mets leave with injuries

Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets Jay Bruce powered the Mets to a much-needed win over the Phillies. He blasted two home runs that accounted for all five Mets runs. He could have even had another RBI if Yoenis Cespedes had not gotten thrown out at the plate early in the game. Robert Gsellman was on the mound and pitched his best game of the year, and Addison Reed picked up the save in what could be his last game as the closer. It was a bittersweet win since both Lucas Duda and Travis d’Arnaud had to leave the game with injuries, but...

New York Mets’ Bullpen Could Be an Issue Going Forward

The New York Mets' bullpen has been a problem in the past week, costing them in each of the team's four straight losses. The absence of Jeurys Familia has exposed a lack of depth in the unit, with four pitchers (Fernando Salas, Hansel Robles, Jerry Blevins, and Addison Reed) having already appeared in at least eight of the team's first 14 games.

Mets Morning News: Fried by the Fish, Jeurys Familia’s return on the horizon

Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. The Mets finished up their series with the Marlins with another heartbreaker of a loss. They were no-hit for seven innings, but Asdrubal Cabrera managed to tie the game with a single in the ninth. The elation of the comeback would not last long because Addison Reed gave up a pinch-hit, walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth to J.T. Riddle. Mercifully, the Mets leave Miami to take on the Phillies on Tuesday. Choose your recap: Amazin’ Avenue short and long, Bergen Record, Daily News, MLB.com, Newsday, NJ.com,...

Rafael Montero likely to make Opening Day roster, Seth Lugo had MRI

Rafael Montero likely to make Opening Day roster, Seth Lugo had MRI

It seems the Mets’ Opening Day bullpen is set. Rafael Montero is likely to be on the Mets’ Opening Day roster, as Seth Lugo is likely to open the season on the disabled list, according to Marc Carig of Newsday. Lugo, who reportedly was going through fatigue after returning from the World Baseball Classic, had an MRI, per Carig, that showed no structural damage. If the Mets make those moves official, their Opening Day bullpen would be set and include: Addison Reed Jerry Blevins Fernando Salas Hansel Robles Josh Smoker Josh Edgin Rafael Montero Someone would have to go once Jeurys...

Addison Reed a major asset as Mets begin 2017 season

Addison Reed a major asset as Mets begin 2017 season

Reed has been excellent in his time with the Mets. Not every trade the Mets have made over the past few years has been a win, but the deal Sandy Alderson struck for Addison Reed late in the 2015 season was one of the best. Even though it took place just a year-and-a-half ago, you might not even remember the pair of players traded to Arizona to get him: Miller Diaz and Matt Koch. Upon his arrival in Queens, Reed was dominant, with a 1.17 ERA in 15.1 innings in the season’s final month. And last year, he solidified his status as a dependable late-inning reliever with a 1.97 ERA in 77. 2...
