Mets vs. Nationals recap: Mets swept, but Conforto shines

The Mets lost their fourth straight and got swept by the Nationals. Things have not been going well for the New York Mets in the last week or so. Coming into Sunday night, they had lost seven of their last eight games to the division-rival Marlins, Phillies, and Nationals and had been without Travis d’Arnaud, Yoenis Cespedes, Lucas Duda, and Wilmer Flores due to injuries. And Sunday night did little to remedy those problems, as the Mets were once again bested by the Nationals to finish off a clean three-game sweep. It was the Mets’ fourth-consecutive loss. Things got...

Yoenis Cespedes leaves Mets game with leg injury

He is expected to miss two or three games. Yoenis Cespedes’s status remains uncertain after he left last night’s Mets loss against the Phillies with a leg injury.

Cespedes described the feeling as a “shock” in his left hamstring. He said that it...

Juan Lagares likely headed to disabled list

Michael Conforto and Ty Kelly will be on the Opening Day roster. Mets outfielder Juan Lagares looks likely to start the regular season on the disabled list.

Mets lucky to have Neil Walker back in 2017

The switch-hitting second baseman is looking to rebound from the back surgery that ended his 2016 season How much more would the Mets’ loss of Daniel Murphy have hurt if Neil Walker hadn’t been so good in 2016? The 31-year-old second baseman had a 122 wRC+ and a 3.7 fWAR over 113 games. That fWAR was actually the best among Mets position players—including Yoenis Cespedes. Walker’s season, though, was cut short by a herniated disc in his lower back, which was operated on and shouldn’t be a problem in 2017. As long as Walker can stay healthy, he should be able to put up similar...
