The Mets have reshaped their roster over the last year and change, saying goodbye to some familiar faces (some beloved, some not) in the process. Every week, we'll take a look at how some of those former Mets are performing with their new teams...


Anthony Kay, Blue Jays

Kay had an impressive big league debut on Saturday night for the Jays, allowing two runs on four hits in 5.2 innings while walking three and striking out eight.

Wilmer Flores, Diamondbacks

Mets fans know that when Wilmer Flores gets hot, he's an awfully tough out, and that's exactly what he's been for the D-backs of late. The former Mets infielder is 13-for-26 in his last seven games, compiling a robust slash line of .500/.536/.846 with two homers and seven RBI. All of this despite a nagging back issue which is forcing him in and out of the Arizona lineup.

Adeiny Hechavarria, Braves

After being released by the Mets earlier this month, the Braves signed Hechavarria to provide a stopgap at shortstop while Dansby Swanson recovers from an injury. He contributed in a big way against his former team on Friday, doubling in the go-ahead run in the 14th inning to give the Braves a 2-1 lead and the eventual win.

Asdrubal Cabrera, Nationals

Cabrera has had a relative resurgence since joining the Nationals, going 9-for-26 with five RBI in eight games. He singled in his only at-bat on Sunday and added two multi-hit games to his ledger in the past week.

Asdrubal Cabrera, Nationals

Cabrera was designated for assignment by the Rangers last week, but signed with the Nationals on Tuesday. He went 1-for-4 against the Mets on Saturday, but delivered a go-ahead, two-run double in the seventh inning on Sunday. The former Met also played for the Nationals in 2014.

One external option to replace Robinson Cano after his hamstring injury is off the board.

Veteran infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, who had been released by the Texas Rangers on Sunday, signed with the Washington Nationals on Monday, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman. This comes less than 30 minutes after it was reported by Mike Puma of The Post that the Mets were more open to signing Cabrera. 

Cabrera spent 2016-18 as a Met and played second base, shortstop and third base. Known more for his hitting than his fielding, Cabrera only slashed .235/.318/.393 for the Rangers before his release, a noted decline from his .279/.339/.464 line over three years with the Mets.

Asdrubal Cabrera, Free Agent (formerly of Rangers)

The Rangers announced they were designating Cabrera for assignment on Wednesday, following a disappointing 93 games with the team. The former Mets infielder did hit 12 home runs, but was hitting only .235/.318/.393. The team requested unconditional release waivers, and Cabrera will hope to catch on elsewhere.

Matt Harvey, Free Agent (formerly of Angels) 

Matt Harvey's time with the Angels has come to a close. The right-hander was designated for assignment by the team on July 19, and subsequently released two days later. The 30-year-old made 12 starts for the Angels this season, going 3-5 with a lofty 7.09 ERA. His final start was a loss to the Astros, in which he allowed six runs on seven hits over six innings pitched.

Matt Harvey, Angels

Harvey took the mound for the Angels on Saturday for the first time in seven weeks after being sidelined with an upper back strain. The right-hander turned in a strong performance, going 5.2 innings and allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out three against the Mariners. The run did not come until a sac fly in the sixth, opening the game with five scoreless frames.

Jarred Kelenic, Mariners (minors)

The trade for Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano continues to look like one the Mets may regret. While Diaz blew yet another save this week, Kelenic was selected to the All-Star Futures Game as he continues to prove he is one of the promising young prospects in baseball. 

Kelenic struggled this week, though. He is just 2 for his last 24 with nine strikeouts over his last seven games and is hitting just .217/.269/.400 with two home runs and nine RBI since being promoted to High-A ball after dominating Low-A ball with a .309 average and 11 home runs in 50 games.

Jarred Kelenic, Mariners (minors)

As Edwin Diaz continues to falter in high-leverage situations, the trade that brought himself and Robinson Canó to Flushing draws increased ire. Kelenic was one of the main prospects included in the deal and got out to a scalding start with Class A West Virginia.

Kelenic's promotion to High-A has been met with success through a small sample size (seven games). The 19-year-old is batting .375/.423/.667 with two homers and five RBI. He's also stolen a base in three consecutive contests.

The Mariners, who acquired Kelenic this offseason in the deal that sent Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz to New York, promoted him to High-A Modesto on Tuesday after he batted .309 with a .981 OPS in Class A ball. He made his presence known right away by homering in his California League debut and is 4-for-13 in his first three games at the new level.

Kelenic has somewhat cooled off from his scorching start, but he's once again found his power stroke over the course of the last week. The 19-year-old, who was one of the key pieces in the Robinson Cano/Edwin Diaz swap from the offseason, is hitting .301/.394/.545 with eight homers and 24 RBI on the season. The Mets' top pick from a year ago legged out a pair of triples this week, and he's also drawn six walks in his last six games for Class A West Virginia.

The 19-year-old Kelenic, the prized prospect the Mets included in the Diaz/Cano deal, has cooled off over the last two weeks as his triple slash has dropped from a ridiculously good .340/.441/.630 to a still-impressive .314/.397/.529.

In 39 games this season for Seattle's Low-A affiliate, Kelenic has six homers, 13 doubles, one triple, and seven stolen bases.

The former fan favorite hasn't been playing much more than if he were still on the Mets, as he's still operating in a bench role primarily. He's batting .219 and lacking significant pop -- he has four doubles and no homers, while driving in just five runs during the first month of the season.

With plenty of work cut out for GM Brodie Van Wagenen ahead of Spring Training, the Mets have entered the New Year actively pursuing free agents to add depth to the bullpen and utility pieces, according to SNY's Andy Martino. 

Some of the names that have been sifted through include RHP Adam Warren, LHP Justin Wilson and utility players Asdrubal Cabrera and Marwin Gonzalez

The Mets want to continue to address their depth at bullpen after adding Juerys Familia and trading for Edwin Diaz in December. Both Warren and Wilson would provide that help. Warren sported a 3.14 ERA and struck out 52 batters across 51.2 innings for both the Yankees and Mariners last season, while the Cubs' Wilson finished with a 3.46 ERA.

This past Monday, I wrote that I expected Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen to do the following five things by end of the week's MLB Winter Meetings, which concluded Thursday.

So, what did he do, what didn't he do, and how will he approach the rest of the offseason?

1. Sign a high-end free-agent reliever

The Mets continue contacting the Marlins about All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto.

The catcher and his agent have been vocal about wanting to be traded from the rebuilding Marlins to a winning team that could be interested in signing him to a long-term contract extension. He is likely to earn a combined $15-20 million the next two seasons, after which he'll be a free agent at age 29.

The Fish, who have traded away most of their assets under the new ownership that includes former Yankee captain Derek Jeter, have made it clear they would want a king's ransom of prospects and players in return.

The Mets have met with the representative for free agent infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, reports Mike Puma of the New York Post, who says the Mets are seeking a player who can play second base (either as a starter or reserve) while also giving the team a backup shortstop option. The soon-to-be 33-year-old Cabrera hit .262/.316/.458 with 23 homers in 147 games last season split between the Mets and Phillies, who the Mets traded him to for RHP Franklyn Kilome

While the Mets have Jeff McNeil "penciled in" as their second baseman, according to GM Brodie Van Wagenen, they are in need of a backup shortstop since Jose Reyes' Mets career is over.

Danny Abriano, SNY.tv | Twitter | If the Mets are truly interested, a reunion with Cabrera as a jack-of-all-trades who can fill in at second base, shortstop, and third base makes sense. As someone who would potentially start on a team that hopes to contend, it does not...

In exchange, the Mets acquired 23-year-old RHP Franklyn Kilome, who is ranked as the Phillies' No. 10 prospect by MLB.com.

Teams engaged with the Mets on trade talks expected on Friday morning that Asdrubal Cabrera will be traded soon.

Cabrera will not bring back much value, but the Mets are likely to move on him before turning full attention to Zack Wheeler, who should net a team's top 10 prospect.

Mets 2B Asdrubal Cabrera has been oft-involved in trade rumors ahead of the trade deadline on July 31. With the Mets selling, Cabrera's future looms over every at-bat.

In the team's Thursday night over the Pirates Cabrera starred, going 3-5 with a double, home run (18) and four RBI. After the game, Cabrera commented on trade rumors.

"This is my team right now and I'm thinking much about it," Cabrera said. "I just come here and do my job. New York Mets, this is my team. Whatever happens, I can't control that. I just come here and do my best and help the team to win."

The Mets have seen consistent interest in infielder Asdrubal Cabrera.

However, I still expect him to get moved through waivers during August instead of before next week's non-waiver trade deadline. The fact is, Cabrera is earning decent money, he's been struggling since early June and there are several other options available for teams in need of an infielder.

Ricco on trade deadline 00:00:35
Mets assistant general manager John Ricco discusses what the Mets plan to do before the trade deadline after learning about Cespedes injury.

The loss of Yoenis Cespedes for at minimum a significant chunk of next season raises the question of whether the Mets would now be more likely to trade Jacob deGrom and enter a rebuilding phase. But there are too many variables to make that connection.

The Mets don't yet know who their GM will be next season, are remain extremely disinclined to ever trade deGrom, despite his hope to be either extended or relocated. 

My takeaway from reporting on Wednesday morning is that Cespedes' injury is news about Cespedes alone, and everything else with this franchise beyond this month is TBD. Much more pressing is Tuesday's trade deadline, and here's what we know...

Cabrera gets ejected in fifth 00:00:27
Mets third baseman Asdrubal Cabrera gets called out on a check swing and disagrees with the call, which leads to his ejection.

Mets 2B Asdrubal Cabrera was ejected from the Mets game against the Yankees on Saturday afternoon after spiking his bat in the 5th inning. Cabrera disagreed with the third base umpire's ruling that he went around for strike three on a check swing. 

With the Mets down 4-1, Cabrera was at bat with two runners on base with the chance to claw the team back in the game. With two strikes, Yankees RHP Sonny Gray spun a breaking ball in the dirt and Cabrera attempted to check his swing.

Upon being called out, Cabrera spiked his bat in disagreement near Austin Romine as the catcher worked to retrieve the ball in the dirt.

Despite leaving Sunday's game and undergoing X-rays on his right hand, Mets infielder Asdrubal Cabrera expects to be healthy once the All-Star break ends.

Cabrera left Sunday's game after the seventh inning after he attempted to barehand a wild Anthony Swarzak pickoff throw, though X-rays came back negative.

He said his hand is swollen but believes he will be ready to play on Friday when the Mets open the second half with a three-game series against the Yankees.

Zack Wheeler has joined Jeurys Familia and Asdrubal Cabrera as the Mets most likely to be traded this month, although surprises remain possible, and no one is untouchable.

Familia and Cabrera are the obvious trade candidates, because both are free agents at the end of the season. Wheeler has one additional year of control, and teams are showing interest. If the Mets can get, say, a top ten prospect and another depth piece, they will likely move him. Wilmer Flores has less value, but could also go. The Yankees have checked in on Wheeler - but, as always, it's hard to imagine the teams actually working out a deal...

Mest 2B Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday night -- a night after leaving Tuesday's game early due to re-aggravating a hyperextended elbow.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway had said Cabrera should be able to play on Wednesday.

Cabrera seemed to be injured after a bang-bang play at second base. During that play, Philadelphia's Nick Williams was attempting to steal the base and Cabrera was applying a tag after a throw from catcher Devin Mesoraco

Mets infielder Asdrubal Cabrera is among several players the Dodgers are looking into acquiring as the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaches, according to Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan.

The Dodgers are among the teams to strongly pursue Orioles shortstop Manny Machado, but Passan reports they are looking for other players, and that list includes the Reds' Scooter Gennett, the Twins' Brian Dozier and Cabrera, who was hitting .280 with 15 home runs and 49 RBIs entering Monday.

Passan's report comes shortly after The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported the Yankees were among the teams to increase their interest in Machado, the 26-year-old four-time All-Star who is hitting .313 with 21 home runs and 60 RBIs.

The benches and bullpens emptied for the Mets and Pirates on Tuesday night when Josh Harrison's slide in to second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera in the eighth inning broke up a would-be inning-ending double play.

From the mound, Jeurys Familia started screaming at Harrison, who jawed back. And as players rushed in from the dugouts and bullpens, Cabrera's first move was to ... hug Harrison.

Familia left the ballpark without addressing reporters, but Cabrera and Harrison both felt the slide was a good, clean baseball play. And they were right.
