In rare day off from playing the field, Chris Davis swats a grand slam in first at-bat

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis doesn’t get many days off the field, but manager Buck Showalter managed to find him one Sunday. Davis has played 73 of 74 games this season — his only day off coming June 8 — and started at first base in all of them. Sunday, he was the starter at designated hitter,...

Mets can’t predict when or if their Fab Five will get together

ATLANTA — One of these weeks the Mets’ Fab Five may actually pitch together in the same rotation. Until it happens there is a level of skepticism that such a watershed moment in franchise history will occur. The fact two of the dream rotation’s components, Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler, were at the Hospital for...

Major obstacle out of the way for Jose Reyes to return to Mets

ATLANTA — If the Mets and Jose Reyes want a reunion, the biggest remaining obstacle has been removed. On Thursday, the Rockies placed the veteran shortstop on waivers for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release.

Mets waste Matt Harvey effort as bullpen blows it in loss to Braves

ATLANTA — Matt Harvey, by his own admission, struggled, but he still pitched well enough to win. The Mets, without Yoenis Cespedes, went without a home run but managed to put runs on the board. They were beneficiaries of a most favorable review. And yet, with all the figuring out the Mets did, they still...

Terry Collins sorry he name-called beloved Mets media guru

ATLANTA — Mets manager Terry Collins publicly apologized Thursday for his treatment of team media relations vice president Jay Horwitz, who he called “a puppy dog” a day earlier.

Mets’ untradable asset: five-tool shortstop of future

Sometime this weekend the Mets may go back to the future by re-enlisting the best shortstop in their history, Jose Reyes. But the most important shortstop move for the actual future was the promotion to Double-A of Amed Rosario, who is viewed inside and outside the organization as the Mets’ no-doubt best prospect. Rosario, just...

The trait dragging Mets offense down to Mayberry-era levels

You can’t miss the parallels between the 2015 Mets and 2016 Mets, in the way their seasons have unfolded. As Sandy Alderson said on Tuesday afternoon, “I think our record is the same. How we got to that record is similar. Scarily similar.” At that juncture, the ’16 Mets were 36-32, just like the ’15...

‘Is he gonna die?’ Ike Davis’ best Father’s Day story is terrible

If Ike Davis’ best Father’s Day story is moving, it’s more a sprint-to-the-bathroom moving than it is touching. The new Yankees’ part-time first baseman celebrated this year’s Father’s Day in Minneapolis, where the Yankees took on the Twins on Sunday afternoon. This one promised to be much less eventful and vomit-filled than the 2012 version. Davis, then...

Ike Davis’ dad makes the case for Ike Davis: It’s his time

Ron Davis wasn’t making any predictions, but he believes his son, Ike, is finally healthy after hip problems contributed to short stints with the A’s and Pirates and determined to prove he’s still good enough to be an everyday major league first baseman. “It’s time for him to [produce],” the 60-year-old former Yankees reliever said...

Yankees don’t see any red flags in first-rounder’s draft slide

To some, the Yankees may have gotten one of the steals of the recent MLB First-Year Player Draft when they selected outfielder Blake Rutherford from West Hills Chaminade in Los Angeles with the 18th pick. Rutherford was thought by many to be a top-10-quality player, but Yankees’ VP of domestic scouting, Damon Oppenheimer, isn’t ready...
