• Strong finish nets deGrom NL Rookie of Month honors
  • As perhaps a prelude to a National League Rookie of the Year Award, Mets starter Jacob deGrom on Tuesday was named the NL's Rookie of the Month for September.

  • Voting underway to decide Hank Aaron Awards
  • Voting is underway through Sunday exclusively at MLB.com to help decide the 16th annual winners of the Hank Aaron Award, given by "The Hammer" himself during the upcoming 110th World Series to the outstanding offensive performer in each league.

  • Mets' 2015 plan includes small but impactful changes
  • The Mets have no grand plans to change much over the winter. When pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie, Fla., four and a half months from now, the roster will not look markedly different from the one that populated Citi Field last Sunday. But the Mets have reason to believe that with even modest improvements, they can be significantly better.

  • Rookie arms dazzled, but Mets fell short of goals in '14
  • When Matt Harvey decided to undergo Tommy John surgery last October, a bit of optimism leaked out of the Mets' 2014 season. The Mets still genuinely believed they could achieve a playoff berth -- that's why general manager Sandy Alderson originally brought up the topic of 90 wins as a benchmark. But even with the seasons of Jacob deGrom and Jeurys Familia, the Mets fell short.

  • Colon posts 15th win, reaches 200 innings in Game 162
  • Bartolo Colon completed his eighth season of at least 200 innings and his eighth with at least 15 wins with the Mets' 8-3 victory on Sunday. And he did it all at age 41.

  • Mets close season optimistic for next year
  • Bartolo Colon's six innings of three-run ball made him a 15-game winner at age 41, and Lucas Duda's career-high 89th and 90th RBIs put the Mets ahead for good, before his 30th homer iced the Mets' 8-3 victory on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field.

  • Duda caps breakout year with 30th home run
  • In the bottom of the eighth inning on Sunday, Lucas Duda walloped a changeup from Michael Foltynewicz into the right-center-field bullpen, his 30th home run of the season, to score Daniel Murphy and solidify the Mets' 8-3 victory over the Astros. That capped off a two-hit day that included a two-run double in the fifth, giving him 92 RBIs for the year.

  • Abreu exits to ovation, savors last moments in uniform
  • It was a moment 18 years and 2,425 games in the making. In the fifth inning Sunday afternoon at Citi Field, with a line-drive single to left, Bobby Abreu recorded his final big league hit. He waved his batting helmet to acknowledge a standing ovation from the fans at Citi Field and received the ball he hit before departing for a pinch-runner.

  • Worth the wait: Duda's walk-off HR in ninth lifts Mets
  • Lucas Duda waited until the Mets were down to their last out to put his team ahead, his two-run home run off the foul pole in right field giving New York a dramatic 2-1 win over the Astros on Saturday night.</p>

  • McHugh returns to Citi a success story
  • Handshakes and hugs awaited Collin McHugh when the Mets'-turned Astros' pitcher showed up at Citi Field this weekend, having just completed a breakout rookie season. Rising through the Minors alongside Zack Wheeler, Jacob deGrom and others, McHugh debuted at Citi in 2012 but struggled. The Mets later traded him to the Rockies, who ultimately designated him for assignment.
