Mets Daily Prospect Report, 4/24/18: Oh so close to a cycle

Catch up on all the Mets prospects in yesterday's minor league action! *All results from games played on April 23, 2018 Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (5-14) EL PASO 6, LAS VEGAS 3 (BOX) Jason Vargas’s rehab start was mediocre as the 51s blew an early lead and never rebounding.

When the Mets signed Jose Reyes in the offseason, they designated lefty reliever Josh Smoker for assignment, a bit of a surprising move. It was curious because he was the only other left-handed option besides Jerry Blevins in the Mets’ bullpen, and righty Anthony Swarzak as their only addition to the bullpen in free agency. There has been a lot of chatter about how they are lacking another lefty weapon in the bullpen. Some theorized that Steven Matz would eventually wind up there when Jason Vargas...

Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links Meet the Mets After suffering another disheartening loss at the hands of the Braves on Saturday, the Mets got a bit of a reprieve from Mother Nature. The game was rained out and will now be a doubleheader on Memorial Day. With Sunday’s rainout, everyone on the pitching staff will get pushed back a day but Jason Vargas will still make his debut against the Padres on Saturday.
