Conforto, who has been on the injured list since suffering a concussion in a collision with Robinson Cano on May 16, said Friday that he feels “100%,” and expects to resume playing this weekend at Citi Field.

Mets activate Aaron Altherr, Ryan O’Rourke to Triple-A Syracuse

Aaron Altherr looks to find his form The Mets have activated recently acquired outfielder, Aaron Altherr. Claimed from the GIants, Altheer lost his job in the outfield with the Phillies in 2018 posting a 75 WRC+ and then being demoted to AAA. Altherr looks to be an interesting buy low candidate for any normal team willing to take a chance on him. With the recent injuries to the outfield, the Mets are in need of quality outfield depth on the roster. Altherr looks to serve a role serving in a rotation of outfielders while Brandon Nimmo, Jeff McNeil, and Michael Conforto are out with their...

Mets place Cano, McNeil on the IL, call up Guillorme and O’Rourke

The Mets have lost four of their lineup regulars to injuries over the last week. Prior to today’s matinee series finale against the Washington Nationals, the New York Mets placed Robinson Cano and Jeff McNeil on the Injured List. To take their place, the team recalled Luis Guillorme to provide additional depth on the bench and Ryan O’Rourke to rejoin the bullpen. After Michael Conforto suffered a concussion on May 16, and after placing Brandon Nimmo on the IL with neck inflammation prior to last night’s game, the team has now lost half of their Opening Day lineup to injuries over the...

Mets close door on Keon Broxton, open one for Carlos Gomez

In a somewhat surprising move, the New York Mets decided it was time to officially close the door on Keon Broxton by designating him for assignment and replacing him with veteran outfielder Carlos Gomez.

Mets designate Keon Broxton for assignment, call up Carlos Gomez and Paul Sewald, place Michael Conforto on IL

The Mets made some roster moves today. With their three-game series in Miami set to begin tonight, the Mets called up Carlos Gomez, designated Keon Broxton for assignment, called up Paul Sewald, and placed Michael Conforto on the 7-day injured list for concussions. Gomez is in the Mets’ lineup tonight and playing right field as he makes his return to the team with which he made his major league debut in 2007. He had a down year in the big leagues last year, but the 33-year-old was hitting well for Triple-A Syracuse before the call-up. He was not on the Mets’ 40-man roster before today,...

New York Mets will finally put their “exceptional” depth to the test

The New York Mets bragged about their depth during the preseason. It’s mid-May and they have barely taken advantage of it. Michael Conforto’s injury, however, will force them to put it to the test. A common term we heard this spring with a positive twang to it when spoken by the New York Mets front […] New York Mets will finally put their “exceptional” depth to the test - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - A New York Mets Blog Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Your Friday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets Everything went wrong for the Mets in the series finale against the Nationals. Zack Wheeler was bad, Michael Conforto and Jeff McNeil left with injuries, and a comeback fell just short yet again.

Wheeler disappoints as Mets’ rally falls just short

Wheeler disappoints as Mets’ rally falls just short

The Mets lost Michael Conforto and, eventually, the game. In what seems to be a yearly occurrence for the Mets, they lost a tough game against the Nationals and lost a couple players to injuries along the way. The Mets 7-6 loss against Washington this afternoon was especially disheartening in more ways than one. The first stop of the highway of despair came quickly in the Nationals half of the first inning as Zack Wheeler had a rough time recording outs. After the Mets recorded three straight outs on offense, Washington took the opposite approach as their first three batters all reached...

Carlos Gomez coming back to Mets — for real this time

Carlos Gomez’s second stint with the Mets will begin Friday. The veteran outfielder was informed following Thursday’s game for Triple-A Syracuse that the Mets were selecting his contract.
