  • Conforto cementing status among NL elite
  • Rapidly, Michael Conforto's reality has shifted. No longer must Conforto answer questions about whether he will make the Mets' roster, or how much he will play if he does. No longer must Conforto check manager Terry Collins' lineup card, unsure of his status, upon arriving at the ballpark.

  • Yo among Mets' sidelined stars near return
  • Slowly, the Mets are growing healthier, with some of their most significant missing pieces due back soon.

  • Milone struggles as Mets drop finale to Angels
  • The Mets spent most of this weekend pitching carefully to Mike Trout, limiting him to singles and walks. Trout finally broke through Sunday on a banner day for the Angels' offense, collecting a homer and a double while reaching base four times in Los Angeles' 12-5 win over the Mets.

  • Reyes scratched due to tweaked rib cage
  • Jose Reyes' breakout three-hit performance Saturday night came at a cost: Reyes tweaked a muscle inside his left ribcage during his first at-bat. Though he was initially in the starting lineup for Sunday's finale vs. the Angels, the Mets scratched him approximately two hours before game time.
