• Mets hope Cespedes available in a pinch
  • Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes was able to take batting practice for the first time since incurring a hamstring strain, and there was a chance he'd be available to pinch-hit Sunday night.

  • Rosario doubles, scores in three-hit effort
  • Clint Frazier has had Yankees fans abuzz since New York traded for him last July, but he hadn't gotten off to the hottest start to the 2017 season at the plate. As of Saturday, that looks like it might be changing.

  • Mets offense MIA after 7th loss in 8 games
  • Gio Gonzalez carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning and lasted into the seventh to lead the Nats to a 3-1 victory over the Mets. Washington has now won six consecutive games and will go for a sweep Sunday night. New York, meanwhile, is ailing and has dropped seven of its past eight games.

  • deGrom's line a rarity, for better and worse
  • Jacob deGrom pulled off quite a feat on Saturday: the Mets right-hander was both very good and very bad in the same performance during a 3-1 loss to the Nationals at Citi Field.

  • Reyes out of starting lineup to clear head
  • Mets manager Terry Collins decided to bench Jose Reyes for at least a game or two, hoping that the break will help shake his leadoff hitter out of a serious slump.

  • Mets place Duda, Flores on disabled list
  • The Mets put first baseman Lucas Duda and infielder Wilmer Flores on the 10-day disabled list Friday, but Duda and Flores were only the start of an injury list that is growing by the day.

  • Gonzalez extends scoreless streak to 20 2/3
  • No pitcher has been more dominant than Class A Columbia's Merandy Gonzalez to begin the season. That trend continued on Friday night, as the Mets' No. 14 prospect extended his scoreless innings streak to 20 2/3 by tossing seven frames in a win against Lexington.

  • Collins laments lack of scoring
  • The names and the faces were different, because the Mets have had a run of injuries that cost them nearly half their everyday lineup. They had a pitcher pinch-hitting and a pitcher pinch-running, and they had bench players given bigger roles.

  • Depleted Mets sputter in extra-inning loss
  • The Nationals and the Mets have exchanged the National League East title during the past three seasons, and the two teams are the favorites in the division again in 2017. That increases the importance of their 19 matchups this season, the first of which required extra innings to decide Friday night's game at Citi Field.

  • With tip from Cabrera, Wheeler hits pinch double
  • Zack turned the Wheels on to run into some surprising Mets history.
