Your Sunday morning dose of Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets A rainout would have been nice. Instead, the skies cleared up and Mets lost to the Nationals once again.

Cubs vs. Mets: Can Amazins take advantage of mediocre Cubbies?

Cubs vs. Mets: Can Amazins take advantage of mediocre Cubbies?

This Chicago team surprisingly isn’t that much better than New York. How’s that for a little momentum? After losing the series opener in Atlanta, the Mets stormed back to sweep the doubleheader on Saturday. They even took the finale on Sunday to make it a three-game winning streak complete with great debuts by Steven Matz and Seth Lugo. There was even a Yoenis Cespedes grand slam, although it doesn’t seem that he’s 100-percent healthy yet. Nevertheless, the three victories bring New York to within five games of the .500 mark. But here come the Chicago Cubs to ruin the day. At 31-31,...

Mets demoted Tyler Pill, Matt Reynolds, T.J. Rivera to make room for Steven Matz, Seth Lugo, and Yoenis Cespedes

Lots of roster movement this weekend This weekend, the Mets welcomed Yoenis Cespedes, Steven Matz, and Seth Lugo back to the major league roster after lengthy stints on the disabled list. However, that also meant that the team had to say goodbye to a trio of players to make room on the active roster for their returning trio. After Friday night’s loss to the Braves, the team demoted infielder Matt Reynolds to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear a roster spot for Steven Matz, who was starting the second game of Saturday’s double header. Reynolds, who was called up on April 26, appeared in 20...

Mets activated Seth Lugo from disabled list, designated Sean Gilmartin for assignment, Cardinals claimed Gilmartin

Six—count them, six—healthy starters Seth Lugo was activated from the 60-day disabled list prior to his scheduled start Sunday afternoon against the Braves. After coming up in late 2016 and proving to be a big asset for the Mets down the stretch last year—posting a 2.67 ERA over 64 innings (17 appearances, eight starts)—Lugo was expected to be an important member of the 2017 staff coming out of spring training. But an injury suffered during his stint for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic—ultimately diagnosed as a partial UCL tear—postponed the right-hander’s season...

Mets vs. Braves Recap: Quality starting pitching is a beautiful thing

The Mets didn’t need an offensive explosion to win the series. The Mets continued their run of quality starting pitching and took the series from the Braves on Sunday afternoon in Cobb County, winning 2-1 in the getaway game of the series. Seth Lugo made his first start of the year and, partially torn UCL and all, looked quite good for the Mets. The Mets got on the board early, with Michael Conforto leading off the game with a double, being bunted to third, and then scoring on a Wilmer Flores sacrifice fly. Conforto had two hits off the left-handed Jaime Garcia, further...
