7/6/2015 | Familia up for NL All-Star spot in Final Vote

Jeurys Familia and his 1.13 ERA may not be an All-Star, but he still has a chance. Familia has been named to the National League's Final Vote ballot, along with Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers, Johnny Cueto of the Reds, Troy Tulowitzki of the Rockies and Carlos Martinez of the Cardinals.


7/6/2015 | Final Vote underway for last AL, NL spots

Balloting is under way through 4 p.m. ET on Friday in the Esurance MLB All-Star Game Final Vote , a four-day blitz in which unique campaign alliances will form, digital balloting records will probably fall and fans will decide the 34th and final roster spots for the 86th Midsummer Classic on July 14 at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.


7/6/2015 | deGrom selected for first All-Star Game

Pitching has defined the Mets throughout the first half of this season. So it is only natural that pitching is what will represent them at the 2015 All-Star Game in Cincinnati. Starting pitcher Jacob deGrom was named to his first National League All-Star team Monday, while closer Jeurys Familia was named to the Final Vote ballot.


7/6/2015 | Mets summon Nieuwenhuis to bolster bench

Seeking to improve their bench, the Mets on Monday selected the contract of outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis from Triple-A Las Vegas, and optioned Darrell Ceciliani there.


7/5/2015 | Flores enjoys breakout series in LA

Whether Wilmer Flores' recent move to second base had anything to do with his sudden turnaround is nothing more than conjecture. But he has broken out since shifting defensive positions, rapping out four hits in the Mets' 8-0 win over the Dodgers on Sunday. He finished 10-for-13 in the three-game series with two doubles and five RBIs.


7/5/2015 | Future is bright for Mets with Matz on mound

Steven Matz, a 24-year-old left-hander, made his second career Major League start at Dodger Stadium and led the Mets to an 8-0 victory over the Dodgers. He's now 2-0 with a 1.32 ERA.


7/5/2015 | deGrom solid candidate for first All-Star berth

Given the Mets' obvious strengths and weaknesses over the first half, it was only natural that they had no position players named to the National League All-Star team starting lineup Sunday -- just as it's only natural that they should be well-represented when manager Bruce Bochy reveals his pitching staff Monday.


7/5/2015 | Harvey not a fan of six-man rotation

Unprompted, when asked about his struggles after Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Dodgers, Matt Harvey at least partially blamed his discomfort in the Mets' six-man rotation. A day later, manager Terry Collins recommended that Harvey and his other starting pitchers "get over it."


7/5/2015 | Heston gets rematch vs. no-hitter foe Mets

If the Mets can trace their current offensive funk back to any one day in particular, it may as well be June 9 -- the day that Giants rookie Chris Heston no-hit them at Citi Field. Now comes the rematch, a chance for revenge. Heston will face Jon Niese and the Mets in Monday's series opener at AT&T Park.


7/5/2015 | Matz blanks Dodgers for six as Mets roll

For once, the Mets had little trouble scoring Sunday at Dodger Stadium. And they didn't even need Steven Matz to contribute that much with the bat. Matz did drive home his fifth run in two games in the Mets' 8-0 win over the Dodgers, also delivering six shutout innings in his second career start.


7/5/2015 | Harvey shows Tommy John return is a process

Matt Harvey at times has showed signs of struggle through his first year pitching after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. There is such a thing as Tommy John surgery fatigue and Harvey showed the vestiges of it on Saturday in a 4-3 loss to the Dodgers.


7/4/2015 | Mets' offense still trying to work through lull

Like the faintest blips on a heart rate monitor, the Mets' offense showed rare signs of life in the eighth and ninth innings on Saturday at Dodger Stadium. The three runs they scored may not have mattered much in a 4-3 loss to the Dodgers, who took advantage of Matt Harvey's wildness while leaning on their own superb starter, Zack Greinke, for seven shutout innings.


7/4/2015 | Mets ready for Mejia's return from suspension

Whether Jenrry Mejia addresses the clubhouse as a whole or has conversations privately, locker to locker, Terry Collins doesn't care. The Mets manager does not even care if his suspended former closer apologizes. But he does feel that Mejia must say something upon returning Tuesday in San Francisco.


7/4/2015 | Matz, eyeing encore, faces Dodgers

This time around, Steven Matz will have no family in the crowd, no screaming throngs of friends behind the home dugout. When Matz takes the mound for his second career start Sunday at Dodger Stadium, it will be normal.


7/4/2015 | Mets turn to Matz in finale vs. Bolsinger, Dodgers

Coming off a spectacular Major League debut, Steven Matz is hoping for similar success in his second start on Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium against Mike Bolsinger.


7/4/2015 | Greinke lifts Dodgers over Harvey, Mets

When the National League's hottest pitcher met the game's coldest offense on Saturday, the result was as advertised. Zack Greinke delivered seven shutout innings to extend his scoreless streak in a 4-3 Dodgers win over Matt Harvey and the Mets.


7/3/2015 | Cuddyer avoids DL, pinch-hits vs. Dodgers

Once confident that he would avoid the disabled list, then not so confident, Michael Cuddyer took batting practice prior to Friday's game against the Dodgers and pronounced himself -- once and for all -- healthy enough to avoid an extended absence.


7/3/2015 | Mets don't plan to rush Conforto to Majors

Desperate for offense, the Mets have discussed calling up last year's top Draft pick, outfielder Michael Conforto, who has been thriving at Double-A Binghamton since an early-season promotion. But the team has no plans to debut Conforto anytime soon, general manager Sandy Alderson said.


7/3/2015 | A more upbeat Wright visits team in L.A.

Smiling, laughing, joking -- "that joyful sound" back in his voice, as Terry Collins put it -- the David Wright who appeared at Dodger Stadium on Friday hardly resembled the version who first visited his teammates a month ago in San Diego. But an underlying sense of uncertainty continues to surround Wright and his return from spinal stenosis.


7/3/2015 | Collins' job is safe, Alderson says

Despite the Mets' disappointing play in recent weeks, dropping from 10 games over .500 in late April to exactly .500 at the start of play Friday, team leaders have given "absolutely no consideration" to making a managerial change, general manager Sandy Alderson said.


7/3/2015 | Mets must shop for offensive help

No one has to read too much between the lines. Mets captain and third baseman David Wright isn't going to return from stenosis in his lower spine anytime soon. Consequently, if the Mets are going to find any help for their beleaguered offense, ranked 29th in the Major Leagues, it's going to have to be from elsewhere.


7/3/2015 | Mets, Dodgers aces square off in holiday showdown

In the middle game of a three-game series between the Mets and Dodgers, a pair of aces will take the mound at Dodger Stadium on Saturday.


7/3/2015 | Mets squeak by Dodgers in taut pitchers' duel

The Mets still aren't scoring particularly often, but on Friday night, at least, they managed to score enough. Kevin Plawecki hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, lifting the Mets to a 2-1 victory over the Dodgers on a night that saw Noah Syndergaard hold one of the National League's best offenses to two hits in six innings.


7/3/2015 | Rose better after Mets' charter lands for him

The Mets' team charter made an emergency landing Thursday night in Detroit to allow Mets radio play-by-play voice Howie Rose to see a doctor after feeling ill on board.


7/2/2015 | Ynoa tosses one-hitter for Binghamton

Entering Thursday, Double-A Binghamton pitcher Gabriel Ynoa had only tossed one nine-inning complete game in 93 starts. But the Mets No. 11 prospect one-upped himself in a 5-0 win over Erie.
