Terry Collins ripping into Alejandro De Aza may be last straw

ATLANTA — Alejandro De Aza’s days with the Mets appear numbered. The veteran outfielder isn’t hitting, and on Saturday, he received an earful from manager Terry Collins after his lack of hustle helped kill an inning. With Wilmer Flores on first base in the 10th inning, De Aza popped up a bunt and slammed his...

DeGrom brilliant, Kelly Johnson the hero as Mets close on Nats

ATLANTA — Jacob deGrom’s best performance of 2016 should have been enough to yield his first win in nearly two months Saturday. But finally removing Michael Conforto from the scene and sending him to Triple-A Las Vegas for a tuneup wasn’t enough to get this lineup rolling against a pitcher as talented as Julio Teheran....

Brandon Nimmo ‘in shock,’ Conforto resolute after shakeup

ATLANTA — If the numbers didn’t say enough, Michael Conforto’s body language and his eyes told the story well enough for Mets manager Terry Collins. “It was after his second at-bat [Saturday]. He came off the field, and I was looking at him. I could see he reached a state of mental confusion,” Collins said....

Jose Reyes returning to Mets

ATLANTA — Yes, you can go home again. Just ask the Mets and Jose Reyes. There will be an expected backlash because of the 33-year-old veteran’s off the field problems that led to a 52-game MLB-imposed suspension for domestic abuse, but as expected the Mets moved quickly and signed Reyes to a minor league contract...

Mets fans are going to be seeing a lot more Alejandro De Aza soon

Alejandro De Aza hasn’t brought much to the Mets over the first two-plus months of the season, but his opportunities also have been scarce. To that end, manager Terry Collins said he wants to give the veteran outfielder more regular playing time in an effort to get him going offensively. De Aza started in right...

Mets finally put up some runs but need extras to avoid sweep

PITTSBURGH — One Wilmer Flores jam-shot to center field Wednesday might as well have been a blast into the Allegheny River. Flores’ pinch-hit bloop in the 10th inning came nowhere close to water, but touched grass not far behind second base, bringing home the go-ahead run for the Mets in their 6-5 victory over the...

Kelly Johnson deal shows Mets are serious about contending

PITTSBURGH — Credit Kelly Johnson with that one. No, don’t do that. But urgency pervaded the Mets’ air Wednesday, from the front office down to the field, from Flushing to this charming Midwestern burg, and rarely will that hurt a sports team. It sure as heck didn’t here at PNC Park. Hours after the Mets...

Mets begin to repair offense with Kelly Johnson trade (again)

PITTSBURGH — Kelly Johnson’s stint with the Mets last season left a positive enough impression to warrant a sequel. With the Mets in desperate need of lineup help, team brass will look to a familiar face, after acquiring Johnson from the Braves in a trade Wednesday for pitching prospect Akeel Morris. Johnson, 34, is expected...
