Scouts weigh in on strong stretch for Mets' Seth Lugo: 'One of the best relievers in the game'

Jacob deGrom pushed himself a little closer to a second straight Cy Young Award with seven brilliant innings on Monday night, and yet there's a case to be made that he was the Mets' second-best pitcher in the 3-1 win against the Diamondbacks.

The New York Mets announced today that they have recalled Chris Mazza from Triple-A prior to tonight’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Mazza will join the bullpen for the stretch run as the team looks to sneak into the postseason.

That changed earlier this year when the Mets called the right-hander up from...

Friends new and old stood out in the Mets win over the Diamondbacks

Gregory J. Fisher-USA TODAY Sports Pete Alonso and Jacob deGrom were spectacular in the series opener. Jacob deGrom’s last start turned into an epic disaster for the entire team so a crisp, no-muss no-fuss victory over the Diamondbacks was just what the doctor ordered. The win came at a good time after dropping a series to the Phillies and a bit of drama leaked out about Noah Syndergaard and Wilson Ramos. After gutting out his last outing, deGrom put in a more vintage performance against Arizona. He was dominant from the first pitch, not giving much to a hot Diamondbacks offense to...
