  • Van Slyke (wrist) hits in batting cage Tues.
    Scott Van Slyke (wrist) took swings in the batting cage on Tuesday.

    Advice: Unfortunately, manager Don Mattingly later indicated that the swings didn't go particularly well. Van Slyke was hopeful to take batting practice, but his wrist simply isn't up to speed yet. He was given a cortisone shot on Friday, but his status for the team's NLDS showdown with the Mets remains clouded. 43 minutes ago

  • Matt Harvey will be fined for missing workout
    Mets manager Terry Collins said that Matt Harvey would be fined for missing Tuesday's mandatory workout session.

    Advice: Harvey was stuck in traffic when the workout began and eventually called Collins when it became clear he wouldn't make the session. Collins then told him to turnaround. The 26-year-old right-hander subsequently apologized to his teammates. A fine's coming his way, but he'll still be the starter for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Dodgers. At least assuming he arrives at the ballpark on time. 51 minutes ago
  • Update: Harvey stuck in tunnel traffic
    Updating a previous story, Matt Harvey missed Tuesday's mandatory workout because he was stuck in tunnel traffic.

    Advice: Initially, even Mets GM Sandy Alderson was unaware of why Harvey was absent from the workout. Apparently, the ace was stuck in traffic and called manager Terry Collins, who told him to turn around. Mystery solved. Today, 11:11 am
  • Harvey misses mandatory workout
    Matt Harvey missed a mandatory workout on Tuesday.

    Advice: To add intrigue to Harvey's absence, GM Sandy Alderson indicated that he doesn't know why the Mets ace wasn't at the workout. So far as we know, Harvey isn't dealing with any kind of injury. Details should emerge as the day progresses. Today, 11:05 am
  • Uribe (chest) out for NLDS vs. Dodgers
    Juan Uribe (chest) will miss the NLDS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: It's not a big surprise, as Uribe suffered a chest bruise diving for a ball on September 20 and has seen little in the way of improvement. His absence will likely clear the way for Kirk Nieuwenhuis to make the roster. The Mets haven't ruled Uribe out for future rounds of the playoffs. Today, 10:44 am

  • Flores says his back feels good
    Wilmer Flores said Tuesday that his back feels good.

    Advice: Flores sat out the final four games of the regular season with some back stiffness, but he's good to go for the NLDS. However, Ruben Tejada is likely to get most of the playing time at shortstop. Today, 10:31 am

  • Marlins re-sign Ichiro Suzuki for 2016
    Marlins re-signed OF Ichiro Suzuki to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that he'll receive a $2 million base salary. Suzuki's .561 OPS this season was the second-lowest among players with at least 400 plate appearances (only Kansas City's Omar Infante was worse), but the Marlins are willing to bring him back in a reserve role as he continues his chase for 3,000 hits in MLB. He'll go into his age-42 season with 2,935 hits. Today, 10:21 am
  • Dan Jennings won't be back as Marlins manager
    The Marlins announced Tuesday that Dan Jennings will not return as manager for 2016.

    Advice: Given that the Marlins have already begun a search for a new manager, this announcement was inevitable. Jennings was asked to return as general manager, but it's unclear whether he will stick around. The Marlins went 55-69 after Jennings took over for Mike Redmond in May. Today, 10:10 am

  • Ventura starting Game 1 of ALDS for Royals
    Yordano Ventura will start Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday.

    Advice: Not a surprise, as this is how the Royals lined things up in recent days. Johnny Cueto will start Game 2 of the series while Edinson Volquez will pitch in Game 3. The Royals will face the winner of Tuesday's Wild Card Game between the Astros and the Yankees. Today, 9:58 am
  • Steven Matz (back) throws bullpen session
    Steven Matz (back) threw a bullpen session Tuesday at Citi Field.

    Advice: Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen indicated that everything went well. Matz, who has been dealing with spasms in his upper back, is now slated to throw around 90 pitches in an instructional league game on Thursday. The hope is that he'll be ready to pitch Game 4 of the NLDS against the Dodgers next Tuesday. Today, 9:53 am
  • Twins see Plouffe as a third baseman
    Twins general manager Terry Ryan said Tuesday that he sees Trevor Plouffe as only a third baseman.

    Advice: Joe Mauer is expected to remain the starting first baseman, but Ryan also said that he wants Miguel Sano to play the field. Something will have to give with this situation. It's possible the team could explore a trade involving Plouffe this winter. Today, 9:48 am
    L, 6-1 vs x KC
  • Gallardo to start Game 1 of ALDS for Rangers
    Yovani Gallardo will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

    Advice: Cole Hamels just pitched on Sunday, so he wasn't an option for the assignment. However, Hamels will start Game 2 on Friday. Gallardo posted a 3.42 ERA in 33 starts this season and has pitched well vs. Toronto, but he has completed six innings in a start just once since the start of August. Today, 9:36 am
  • Twins' Brian Dozier to undergo MRI on hip
    Twins general manager Terry Ryan said Tuesday that Brian Dozier will undergo an MRI on his hip.

    Advice: It's not considered serious, but it could provide some context for his drop-off in production during the second half. The 28-year-old had an .841 OPS in the first half and a .639 OPS after the All-Star break. Today, 9:29 am
  • Astros finalize roster for AL Wild Card game
    Mike Fiers is on the Astros' roster for Tuesday's Wild Card game against the Yankees.

    Advice: Dallas Keuchel is starting the Wild Card game, but he's going on three days' rest, so Fiers gives Astros manager A.J. Hinch some flexibility just in case. Similar to the Yankees, the Astros are carrying nine pitchers for the one-game playoff. Matt Duffy made the roster as the 25th man while Jonathan Singleton was left off. Of course, the Astros will reset their roster if they advance to the ALDS. Today, 8:42 am
  • Cespedes (fingers) '100 pct. ready' for NLDS
    Yoenis Cespedes (fingers) said Tuesday that he's "100 percent ready" for the NLDS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Cespedes gave the Mets quite the scare when he was hit in the left hand with a pitch last Wednesday, but fortunately he only suffered contusions on his middle and ring fingers. He returned to action over the weekend with no issues, so he's good to go for the postseason. Today, 8:38 am
  • Marlins bringing back Ichiro for 2016
    Joe Frisaro of reports that the Marlins are bringing back Ichiro Suzuki for 2016.

    Advice: It was expected already, but an official announcement is expected on Tuesday. Suzuki turns 42 later this month and batted just .229/.282/.279 in 438 plate appearances this season, but he's 65 hits shy of 3,000 for his career. There's obvious marketing appeal for the Marlins. Today, 8:32 am
  • Yankees announce Wild Card game roster
    Luis Severino is on the Yankees' roster for Tuesday's Wild Card game against the Astros.

    Advice: Masahiro Tanaka will make the start, but Severino will be around as insurance. The Yankees are carrying nine pitchers and three catchers. Rob Refsnyder, Slade Heathcott, and pinch-running specialist Rico Noel have also been included as bench players. The Yankees will change their roster if they advance to the ALDS. Today, 7:45 am
  • Minor (shoulder) in Braves' plans for '16
    Mike Minor (shoulder) is still in the Braves' plans for 2016.

    Advice: Minor missed the entire 2015 season after undergoing surgery in May to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, but Braves president of baseball operations John Hart said Monday that he's "all systems go" and ramping up his throwing program. The southpaw made $5.6 million this season and will be arbitration-eligible for the third time this winter. Because he was a Super Two player, he remains under team control through 2017. Today, 6:26 am

  • Ichiro hoping to return to Miami next season
    Ichiro Suzuki said Sunday that he's hoping to return to the Marlins next season.

    Advice: "Of course" was the response from the 41-year-old impending free agent outfielder. Ichiro batted just .229/.282/.279 in 438 plate appearances this season and he turns 42 years old later this month, but there should be offers out there if he's willing to accept a low base salary and reserve role. There's thought to be some interest from the Marlins, though that front office is currently in flux and will have quite a bit on its plate this winter. Yesterday, 6:56 am
  • Marlins to interview Larry Bowa for manager
    Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports that the Marlins plan to interview Phillies bench coach Larry Bowa for their managerial opening.

    Advice: Bowa previously managed the Padres (1987-1988) and Phillies (2001-2004), compiling an 81-127 career record. The Marlins are seeking a manager with prior experience this time around and have already interviewed Bo Porter and Manny Acta for the position. Sunday, 6:13 pm

  • Uribe (chest) still can't do activities
    Juan Uribe (chest) remains unable to do physical activities.

    Advice: Uribe is still dealing with a deep chest bruise that he suffered while diving for a ball on September 20. He's a long shot for the NLDS roster and is a question mark for any subsequent series should the Mets advance. Sunday, 9:23 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Steven Matz (back) to throw off mound Tues.
    Steven Matz (back) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll then throw 90-100 pitches in an instructional league game Thursday if he's feeling up to it. The Mets plan on starting Matz in Game 4 of the NLDS if his stiff back will allow it. Sunday, 9:18 am
  • Brian Dozier absent from Sunday's lineup
    Brian Dozier is absent from the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Minnesota is playing a lot of subs in this one. It will be Eduardo Escobar shifting over to second base and Danny Santana covering shortstop. Sunday, 8:28 am
  • Severino allows three runs, Yanks fall to O's
    Luis Severino yielded three earned runs in seven innings Saturday in the Yankees' loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Severino came away with a no-decision because the O's didn't take the lead for good until the bottom of the eighth inning. Severino struck out six, walked none, and gave up only five hits. But two of those five hits were homers. The young right-hander will finish his first taste of MLB action with an impressive 2.89 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 62 1/3 innings. He'll be in the Opening Day rotation in 2016. Saturday, 6:46 pm
  • Harvey strikes out 11 over six strong innings
    Matt Harvey allowed just one (unearned) run over six innings Saturday in the Mets' loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Harvey looked sharp in his final tuneup before the postseason, yielding only four hits and striking out 11 batters on just 91 pitches. He did not issue a walk. Max Scherzer out-dueled him on the other end, however, firing his second no-hitter of the 2015 season as the Nationals went on to win 2-0. Harvey is expected to make just one start in the NLDS. Saturday, 6:37 pm
  • Yoenis Cespedes sitting out nightcap
    Yoenis Cespedes is not in the Mets' lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: Cespedes returned to action Saturday after missing Thursday's game with a finger injury and went 1-for-3 with a single. He'll take a seat for the nightcap with Kirk Nieuwenhuis getting the start in center field. Cespedes has established new career highs in almost every offensive category including home runs (35), RBI (105) and hits (182). Saturday, 3:10 pm
  • Cespedes (finger) returns to lineup for Mets
    Yoenis Cespedes (fingers) went 1-for-3 with a single and a walk in his return to action Saturday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Cespedes gave the Mets quite a scare when he was hit in the left hand with a pitch on Wednesday night, but fortunately he only suffered contusions on his middle and ring fingers. He'll be good to go for the postseason. Saturday, 1:17 pm
  • Yordano Ventura brilliant in win over Twins
    Yordano Ventura was brilliant in Saturday's victory over the Twins, racking up 11 strikeouts over seven innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: Ventura scattered just four hits and three walks on the afternoon. The only blemish on his day was an RBI single by Brian Dozier in the sixth inning. Riding a strong second half, Ventura finishes the regular season 13-8 with a 4.08 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 156/58 K/BB ratio across 163 1/3 innings. Saturday, 1:08 pm
  • Brian Dozier plates lone run in loss Saturday
    Brian Dozier went 1-for-4 and plated the Twins lone run as they dropped a critical decision to the Royals on Saturday in Minnesota.

    Advice: The loss closes the door on the Twins playoff hopes. At the time, Dozier's run-scoring single in the sixth inning tied the game at 1-1, but the Royals would strike for four the following frame to put the game out of reach. Dozier also swiped his 12th base of the year in the loss. The power-hitting infielder is slashing .236/.307/.444 on the season with 28 long balls and 77 RBI. Saturday, 1:08 pm
  • Matz receives injection to relax back muscles
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Steven Matz received an injection in his back on Friday to relax his muscles.

    Advice: Matz was expected to pitch at some point on Saturday or Sunday, though the stiffness in his back has caused him to be scratched twice already this week. Collins hopes that he can get up to 90-100 pitches by Wednesday in the instructional league in order to be ready for his next start. He's expected to function as the Mets' fourth starter in the postseason as long as he's healthy. Saturday, 7:52 am
  • Scott Van Slyke receives cortisone shot
    Scott Van Slyke received a cortisone shot in his ailing right wrist on Friday.

    Advice: He has been in and out of the lineup for most of September due to soreness in his hand and wrist, and has been unable to take batting practice for the past few days. As of now, he's still expected to be a part of the Dodgers postseason roster, but any further setbacks could change that. Saturday, 6:05 am
    W, 6-3 vs x SD
  • Game between Mets, Nationals postponed Friday
    Friday's contest between the Mets and Nationals has been postponed.

    Advice: The Mets and Nationals are the latest in a series of East Coast rain-outs. They'll play a day-night doubleheader on Saturday, with games at 1:00 pm ET and 7:00 pm ET. Friday, 1:19 pm
  • Cespedes (fingers) probably won't play Friday
    Yoenis Cespedes (fingers) probably won't play Friday.

    Advice: Cespedes escaped with a couple of bruised fingers after Wednesday night's frightening HBP on his left hand, but the Mets want their impending free agent slugger to be as close to 100 percent as possible leading into the NLDS. He sat out Thursday and probably won't see more than a handful of at-bats over the weekend against the Nationals. Thursday, 11:48 am
  • Flores (back) unlikely to play Friday either
    Wilmer Flores (back) is not expected to play Friday either.

    Advice: Flores made an early exit from Wednesday's game with stiffness in his lower back and was still feeling the discomfort on Thursday. It's get-healthy time for the National League East-champion Mets. Flores should be fine by the start of the NLDS next Friday. Thursday, 11:42 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Juan Uribe (chest) now doubtful for NLDS
    Juan Uribe (chest) has shown very little improvement and now looks doubtful for the NLDS.

    Advice: Uribe suffered a deep chest bruise while diving for a ball on September 20 and then aggravated the injury a few days later. He'll visit a specialist in New York on Thursday and hope to get some answers, but it sounds like an extended period of rest is the only cure here. Thursday, 7:12 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Mets' Matz (side) to pitch Saturday or Sunday
    Steven Matz (side) is expected to pitch Saturday or Sunday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Matz has been scratched twice this week due to stiffness in the right side of his back, but he is finally beginning to feel better. The young left-hander is in line to serve as the Mets' fourth starter this postseason if he feels good. He owns a shiny 2.27 ERA and 34/10 K/BB ratio through his first 35 2/3 major league innings. Thursday, 7:09 am
  • Cespedes (fingers) not in Mets' lineup Thurs.
    Yoenis Cespedes is not in the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Phillies.

    Advice: Cespedes was struck on the left hand by a fastball on Wednesday night but escaped with minor contusions to his left middle and ring fingers. He's not the only starter absent Thursday for the National League East-champion Mets. Consider the slugger day-to-day for the final weekend and a full-go for postseason play. Thursday, 7:02 am
  • Yovani Gallardo earns win over Tigers
    Yovani Gallardo pitched 5 1/3 innings and allowed two runs Wednesday as the Rangers beat the Tigers 6-2.

    Advice: Unless Gallardo is needed in relief this weekend, he finishes a fine regular season with a 13-11 record and a 3.42 ERA. It's better than we expected after the trade to Texas, though the 1.42 WHIP and dwindling strikeout rate (121 K in 184 1/3 IP) wouldn't seem to bode well for the future. Wednesday, 9:08 pm
  • Steven Matz just dealing with muscle spasms
    Steven Matz was examined by a doctor and was given medication to treat muscle spasms.

    Advice: Matz was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday to due lingering side stiffness, but nothing more serious was diagnosed. For his part, Matz has said it's not a serious issue and that he should be fine sooner than later. The Mets' plans for the postseason are still unclear, but he could be in the running for a start in the NLDS if he bounces back well. Wednesday, 8:35 pm
  • Wilmer Flores exits with lower back stiffness
    Wilmer Flores left Wednesday's game with lower back stiffness.

    Advice: Flores didn't appear to be dealing with anything too serious before being removed from the game. It sounds minor, and Flores shouldn't be sidelined too long as a result. Wednesday, 6:35 pm
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Cespedes diagnosed with finger contusions
    Yoenis Cespedes was diagnosed with contusions on his left middle and ring fingers.

    Advice: The good news is that nothing is broken -- X-rays came back negative, so it's simply a bruise, not a break. It wouldn't be shocking to see Cespedes held out for most or all of the rest of the regular season in hopes of having him back for the start of the NLDS. Wednesday, 6:33 pm
  • Wilmer Flores exits with undisclosed injury
    Wilmer Flores left Wednesday's game against the Phillies with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Either that, or Mets manager Terry Collins wanted to get Flores out of the game in the top of the fourth inning for some baseball-related reason. Flores was replaced by pinch-runner Ruben Tejada. He was 1-for-2 before leaving. The Mets should provide some clarity soon. Wednesday, 5:47 pm
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Cespedes exits after taking HBP on left hand
    Yoenis Cespedes left Wednesday's game against the Phillies after being hit in the left hand by a pitch.

    Advice: Cespedes was immediately in pain after being hit by the Justin De Fratus pitch. He was holding his hand and wrist area as he walked off the field. The Mets should have an update on his condition shortly. Wednesday, 5:12 pm
  • Mets' Matz (side) won't pitch Thursday either
    Steven Matz has been scratched from his start Thursday against the Phillies due to lingering side stiffness.

    Advice: Matz was bumped from Wednesday to Thursday after waking up Tuesday with stiffness in his right side, and now he can't make that Thursday start either. It's not clear when he'll pitch next, and manager Terry Collins suggested Wednesday that Bartolo Colon might have to start in the NLDS. Matz had been lined up to serve as the Mets' fourth starter in the postseason. Wednesday, 1:02 pm
  • Fiers allows 4 R over 5 2/3 IP as Astros lose
    Mike Fiers got a no-decision, allowing four runs (three earned) in 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: The Mariners scored twice on sacrifice flies in the first inning, but didn't manage anything else until Robinson Cano hit a two-run homer in the sixth. On the evening, Fiers gave up five hits and a walk while striking out seven. In nine starts and one relief appearance for the Astros since joining the team at the trade deadline, Fiers has a 3.32 ERA and a 59/21 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings. Fiers is on track to pitch the regular season finale, in Arizona against the Diamondbacks. Tuesday, 10:42 pm
  • Steven Matz (side) to start on Thursday
    Steven Matz's (side) next start has officially been pushed back to Thursday against the Phillies.

    Advice: He's flip-flopping with Logan Verrett, who will now go on Wednesday. Matz developed some stiffness in his right side after sleeping funny Monday night, but it's no big deal. The Mets are just being careful here. Tuesday, 7:08 pm
  • Harvey will only make one start in the NLDS
    Mets GM Sandy Alderson indicated Tuesday that Matt Harvey will only pitch once in the NLDS.

    Advice: Which means he's probably going to take Game 3 against the Dodgers. Harvey has been the center of a very public innings-limit controversy for going on a month, but he threw 97 pitches over 6 2/3 innings Saturday against the Reds and can still have a major impact as a one-start-per-series pitcher in the postseason. Tuesday, 1:41 pm
  • Mets starter Matz has stiffness in right side
    Steven Matz may be scratched from his start Wednesday against the Phillies due to stiffness in his right side.

    Advice: Mets manager Terry Collins hinted at the idea in his pregame chat with reporters on Tuesday afternoon. There should be something more official sometime Tuesday night. This doesn't sound like a serious, long-term problem for Matz, who boasts a 2.27 ERA and 34/10 K/BB ratio through his first 35 2/3 major league innings. Logan Verrett would start in his place Wednesday and then Matz would likely return Thursday. Tuesday, 1:32 pm
  • Matz might not start Wednesday in Philly?
    Mets manager Terry Collins hinted Tuesday that Steven Matz might have to be scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday night in Philadelphia.

    Advice: Collins wouldn't get into any details, so we'll have to play the waiting game on this one. Matz allowed three runs and 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings in his last turn Thursday against the Reds. He owns a 2.27 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 34/10 K/BB ratio over his first 35 2/3 major league frames. Tuesday, 1:18 pm
  • Jennings: Stanton (hand) done for the season
    Marlins interim manager Dan Jennings announced Tuesday that Giancarlo Stanton (hand) is done for the year.

    Advice: Stanton was trying to push back from hamate surgery, but it just didn't happen. And there was never a good reason to rush him. Stanton should be 100 percent heading into spring training next February and he'll again be among the favorites to lead the major leagues in home runs. He tallied 27 homers and 67 RBI in only 74 games this year. Tuesday, 1:09 pm

  • Ventura stymies Cubs over seven innings
    Yordano Ventura dazzled with seven scoreless innings, but was saddled with a no-decision as the Royals lost to the Cubs 1-0 in 11 innings on Monday.

    Advice: Ventura scattered two hits (both singles) and a walk with six strikeouts. He had no-hit the Cubs through five innings but Jorge Soler broke it up with a leadoff single in the sixth. The right-hander now has a 4.20 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 145/55 K/BB ratio over 156 1/3 innings. Ventura will make his final regular season start in Minnesota against the Twins. Monday, 8:03 pm
  • Plouffe swats homer as Twins edge Indians
    Trevor Plouffe hit a two-run home run in Monday's win against the Indians.

    Advice: Plouffe put the Twins up 3-0 early, swatting a two-run home run in the first inning off of Corey Kluber. The third baseman has put up average numbers this year, batting .245/.308/.440 with 22 home runs and 84 RBI. Monday, 7:19 pm
    L, 6-1 vs x KC
  • Luis Severino keeps White Sox in check
    Luis Severino spun six shutout frames Sunday in the Yankees' 6-1 victory over the White Sox.

    Advice: Severino recorded just two strikeouts on the day, tying his lowest mark in 10 outings for the Bronx Bombers, but he also yielded a mere five hits -- four singles -- with one walks. The rookie had one hiccup earlier this month against the powerful Blue Jays lineup but has overall been very consistent while flashing top-of-the-rotation upside. Severino's next start should come next weekend in Baltimore. Sep 27, 1:48 pm
  • Dozier adds two-run double as Twins win
    Brian Dozier had a two-run double as part of a 2-for-5 effort as the Twins beat the Tigers 7-1 on Sunday.

    Advice: Dozier drilled a two-run double to left field in the middle of the Twins' six-run outburst in the second inning to chase Randy Wolf from the game. The second baseman has been a valuable fantasy performer this season, batting .242/.314/.459 with 28 home runs, 75 RBI, 101 runs scored, and 11 stolen bases. Sep 27, 1:31 pm
  • Yoenis Cespedes not in Sunday's lineup
    Yoenis Cespedes is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's simply receiving a day of rest. Juan Lagares will be in center field. Sep 27, 8:08 am
  • Marlins to make Stanton (hand) decision soon
    Marlins interim manager Dan Jennings said Saturday that the club is "getting close to that yea or nay date" when it comes to whether Giancarlo Stanton (hand) will return.

    Advice: A decision figures to be revealed Sunday or Monday, as Jennings said that Stanton probably wouldn't travel on the season-ending road trip beginning Tuesday if it's determined he should shut it down. The club is leaving it up to Stanton as to whether he'll come back during the final week. "There still scar tissue and it's strength. It's the same two issues… We have left it in his court," Jennings said. At this point, it would be a surprise if Stanton returns. He's been out since late June following surgery to remove the hamate bone from his left hand. Sep 27, 7:52 am

  • Trevor Plouffe is under the weather
    Trevor Plouffe is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday due to illness.

    Advice: He should be fine in a day or two. Eduardo Nunez will handle third base in Plouffe's place. Sep 27, 7:48 am

  • Harvey pitches into seventh, Mets clinch East
    Matt Harvey held the Reds to two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Saturday in the Mets' 10-2 rout.

    Advice: And with that, the Mets are your 2015 National League East champions. They're headed to the postseason for the first time since 2006. Harvey gave up nine hits but walked none and struck out six, throwing 97 pitches with no apparent restrictions. So much for that innings limit controversy. Sep 26, 4:19 pm
  • Uribe (chest) may not be ready for NLDS
    There is concern within the Mets organization that Juan Uribe (chest) may not be ready in time for the National League Division Series.

    Advice: Uribe is listed as day-to-day with his chest injury. While X-rays revealed no structural damage on Friday, he's still in a good deal of pain and it's going to be awhile before he's ready to return to the lineup. Sep 26, 10:34 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Matt Harvey to make another start for Mets
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Matt Harvey will make another start next week.

    Advice: Harvey is working against the Reds on Saturday afternoon, then will make one final tune-up in the regular season before the Mets head to the playoffs. How the Mets will structure their rotation in the postseason remains to be seen, but Harvey will obviously play a prominent role. Sep 26, 10:13 am
  • Gallardo allows two runs in no-decision
    Yovani Gallardo allowed two runs in 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Friday.

    Advice: Rangers manager Jeff Banister brought the hook after Gallardo gave up a two-out double to Evan Gattis. He finished just one out short of qualifying for the victory, but Banister didn't want to take a chance of letting the Astros back in it.
