Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Lands on injured list
Nimmo landed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a sprained right shoulder.
Nimmo has dealt with more than his fair share of injury problems in the past, so it's discouraging to see him end the year injured after a pair of seasons in which he crossed the 150-game threshold for the first time. This particular injury may not be too worrisome, however, as source reports that Nimmo avoided structural damage. If the Mets had postseason baseball to look forward to, he would address the problem with an injection, but their 72-86 record means he'll instead hit the couch a few days early and let the problem heal with rest. Michael Perez was recalled to take his place on the roster.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Michael Perez: Recalled from Syracuse
The Mets recalled Perez from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.
Perez will come up from the minors to give the Mets a bench bat as Brandon Nimmo (shoulder) lands on the injured list. Perez played two games with the Mets in May, going 4-for-7 with a run scored. With Francisco Alvarez and Omar Narvaez already on the big-league roster, Perez's chances of starting one of New York's final two games are low.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Tylor Megill: Start pushed back following rainout
Megill's next start will be pushed back after Friday's game between the Phillies and Mets was postponed due to inclement weather, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
The two teams will now play a doubleheader Saturday, with Megill presumably getting the ball in one of those contests. It will be the second start in a row against the Phillies for Megill, who yielded three runs over six innings in a no-decision his last time out.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Likely done for season
Nimmo has an AC joint injury in his right shoulder and will undergo an MRI on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Nimmo was held out of the lineup Sunday with an undisclosed injury, so this may be a related issue. The seriousness of the injury is not yet known, but given that the Mets have little to play for across the final weekend of the regular season, it's unlikely that Nimmo will return to the lineup....

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Has partial UCL tear
Manager Buck Showalter announced Thursday that McNeil (elbow) has been diagnosed with a partial UCL tear, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
McNeil was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday afternoon with what was initially called a left elbow sprain. He is expected to avoid surgery and will try platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment with the goal of being 100 percent recovered by the beginning of spring training next February. The 31-year-old signed a four-year, $50 million contract extension with the Mets before the start of the 2023 campaign and went on to slash .270/.333/.378 with 10 homers and 10 steals in 156 games....

Mets' Denyi Reyes: Recalled from Triple-A
The Mets recalled Reyes from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday.
Reyes will give the Mets a fresh bullpen arm heading into their final four games. He's struggled to a 6.23 ERA through 17.1 innings of work this season at the major-league level.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Optioned to Syracuse
The Mets optioned Lucchesi to Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday.
Lucchesi finished his season on a high note Wednesday, scattering two runs over six-plus innings in a win over the Marlins. The left-hander registered an overall 2.89 ERA across 46.2 major-league innings this year and should be a strong consideration for the Opening Day rotation in 2024 with an improved health outlook....

Mets' Danny Mendick: Recalled from Syracuse
The Mets recalled Mendick from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday.
Mendick will provide depth off the bench after Jeff McNeil (elbow) was shut down for the final four games. Mendick, 30, has batted just .190/.227/.286 across 66 major-league plate appearances this year.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jeff McNeil: Shut down with elbow sprain
The Mets placed McNeil on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left elbow sprain.
McNeil will miss the final four games of the Mets' season, finishing with a .270/.333/.378 batting line, 10 homers, 55 RBI, 10 steals and 75 runs in 648 plate appearances. The 31-year-old is due $10.25 million next year on a contract that runs through 2026.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jeff McNeil: Day off Thursday
McNeil is out of the lineup Thursday against the Marlins.
This looks to be a planned day of rest for McNeil as the Mets play out the string on a highly disappointing 2023 campaign. Tim Locastro is playing left field Thursday and DJ Stewart is in right. Ronny Mauricio will cover second base and bat second.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Pete Alonso: Slugs 46th homer Wenesday
Alonso went 5-for-8 with two doubles, a home run, four total runs and two RBI in Wednesday's doubleheader split against the Marlins.
The first baseman did most of his damage in an 11-2 rout during the matinee, coming a triple short of the cycle and launching his 46th homer of the season in the first inning off Braxton Garrett. Alonso has four games left on the Mets' schedule to reach 50 homers for the second time in his career.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Francisco Lindor: Huge day in twin bill
Lindor went 4-for-7 with two walks, three home runs and six RBI across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader split with the Marlins.
The shortstop took Braxton Garrett deep for a two-run shot in the matinee as the Mets romped to an 11-2 victory before accounting for his team's only offense in the nightcap with solo shots off Johnny Cueto in the second and fourth innings. The power display has given Lindor his first 30-homer season since 2019 as well as his first career 30-30 campaign, and he needs just four more RBI over New York's final four games to add his second straight 100-RBI season to his ledger as well....

Mets' Kodai Senga: Fans eight in no-decision
Senga came away with a no-decision in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Marlins, giving up two runs on three hits and three walks over five innings in a 4-2 loss for the Mets. He struck out eight.
The runs scored on solo shots by Jon Berti and Jesus Sanchez, but Senga was otherwise fairly dominant as he generated 30 called or swinging strikes among his 96 pitches. The 30-year-old right-hander wraps up his first MLB campaign with a 2.98 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and a 202:77 K:BB through 166.1 innings, and barring the Mets making a big offseason splash once again, Senga figures to head into 2024 as the team's ace....

Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Stays undefeated
Lucchesi (4-0) picked up the win in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Marlins, giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks over six-plus innings in an 11-2 rout. He struck out three.
The southpaw took a shutout into the seventh inning before serving up back-to-back doubles to Jazz Chisholm and Nick Fortes to lead off the frame and getting the hook, but the Mets were already comfortably ahead 6-0 at that point. Lucchesi has been sharp in September, posting a 1.93 ERRA, 1.34 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB through 18.2 innings over three starts, and he could be positioning himself for a full-time rotation spot in 2024, assuming he can stay healthy....
