Arizona Diamondbacks

The Yankees lost to the Diamondbacks, 3-2, at Chase Field on Wednesday afternoon to end their West Coast road trip. >> Box score

Six takeaways from Wednesday's game...

1 ) Masahiro Tanaka limited the scoring damage, but he was far from sharp in this game, lasting just four innings. Tanaka continually left off-speed pitches up in the zone and he was tagged as a consequence. His final line - 4 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 BB and 6 K - marks the third start in his last four in which he failed to generate a quality start. Tanaka's ERA jumped to 3.92 after today's performance.

It's official: Wilmer Flores is no longer a Met.

Flores signed a one-year deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday that includes a team option for 2020. He will earn $3.75 million in 2019, and the deal has a $6 million team option with a $500,000 buyout for 2020, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan

Flores took to Instagram to thank the Mets and their fans, as they were the only franchise he had been with since turning pro as a 16-year-old in 2008.

Does A.J. Pollock make sense? 00:01:39
Steve Gelbs and Jim Duquette break down whether it makes sense for the Mets to pursue outfielder A.J. Pollock.

The Mets' outfield already consists of Michael ConfortoBrandon Nimmo and Juan Lagares, and they have Yoenis Cespedes waiting once he returns from surgery.

But should the Mets make a run at free-agent outfielder A.J. Pollock?

Pollock, 31, recorded a .257/.316/.484 batting line with 21 home runs and 65 RBIs in 113 games with Arizona last season. He hasn't played a full season since 2015, when he was an All-Star and hit .315 with 20 home runs and 76 RBIs.

Amid the rumors that the Diamondbacks could deal first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, the Yankees are reportedly not showing significant interest in the six-time All-Star, according to Fancred Sports' Jon Heyman.

Arizona, Heyman reported on Tuesday, has been willing to listen to offers for players like Goldschmidt and pitcher Zack Greinke, however a rival executive told Heyman he believed a trade of Goldschmidt was "remote."

The 31-year-old Goldschmidt hit .290 with 33 home runs and 83 RBIs for the Diamondbacks last season. He has hit at least .290 with an OPS of at least .899 in each of the past six seasons with three top-three MVP finishes.

Zack Wheeler again looked terrific on Sunday, providing further evidence he has clearly turned a physical and psychological corner in his career.

In Sunday's game, he retired 10 straight batters before the D-backs started forcing him to change his gameplan. And he did, which is what has been most impressive about his time on the mound this year. In the end, Wheeler tossed 97 pitches, went six innings, allowed two earned runs and three hits, walked two and struck out eight.

He has a 1.93 ERA in his past three starts. And, in a situation that could make only Jacob deGrom jealous, the Mets are 1-5 during Wheeler's previous five starts, despite his 3.68 ERA.

Nimmo gives the Mets the lead 00:01:12
Brandon Nimmo hits a two-run homer off Brad Boxberger to give the Mets a 4-3 lead with two outs in the ninth inning in Arizona.

Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo hit a two-out, two-run go-ahead home run in the top of the ninth inning to key a comeback victory in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

Nimmo's home run off Brad Boxberger turned a 3-2 deficit into a 4-3 lead, and Asdrubal Cabrera followed with a solo homer as the Mets won back-to-back games for the first time since May 18-21, when they won four in a row.

"To come back and get a win like that," manager Mickey Callaway told reporters after the game, "that was something that we were doing early on, feels like three years old, but that was a really good win for us."

Mets shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera may go on the disabled list with a torn ligament in his thumb, according to the New York Daily News' Kristie Ackert.

Cabrera told Ackert there was a tear despite an MRI showing last week no damage. He said he hopes he would be able to play through it despite leaving Saturday's game in the seventh inning and not playing on Sunday.

Manager Terry Collins said he doesn't expect Cabrera to play Monday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Zack Greinke piped his fastball to the spots he wanted and had hitters pounding his changeup into the dirt.

So what if he got a little tired in the eighth inning. This was the kind of start the Arizona Diamondbacks had hoped for from their new ace and maybe one he can build upon. >> Read more at SNY.tv.


  • Michael Pineda's winless streak reached seven straight games.
  • The Yankees committed two errors on the game: Chase Headley missed a throwing attempt on a steal at second base when shifted over, and Pineda rushed a throw to first base after booting a soft hit grounder.

  • The Yankees have now dropped two to the Diamondbacks and are 5-5 in their last 10 games.
