The Mets considered having prized shortstop Amed Rosario get work in center field last summer. 

However, despite the need in center field last season, Rosario did zero work in the outfield. And he didn't see any work there this Spring Training either. 

But here we are again, with manager Mickey Callaway saying earlier this week that the team is again considering Rosario in the outfield.

The Mets (35-39, 8.5 GB in NL East, 4.5 GB of second Wild Card) open a four-game series against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Thursday night at 8:05 on SNY.

With news Tuesday that Brandon Nimmo will be shut down for 30 days came a potential new outfield alignment for the Mets -- one that could provide the team with an offensive jolt while sacrificing defense.

Manager Mickey Callaway said that with Nimmo now out long-term, a change could be coming in center field. And that change would have a ripple effect throughout the rest of the outfield and open up playing time for hot-hitting Dominic Smith.

Here's how things could shake out with each impacted player...

The Mets desperately need bullpen help, but it appears they were dealt another setback in making that happen. 

Justin Wilson, who has been on the IL since early May with elbow soreness, was scratched from his rehab assignment on Tuesday due to left elbow tightness, the Mets announced. 

Wilson, 31, was close to returning to the majors, rehabbing with Triple-A Syracuse since last week. It is still unclear just how significant of a setback this may be.

The bad news just keeps on coming for the Mets. 

Jeurys Familia is heading back to the IL with a Bennett lesion in his right shoulder -- the same injury that placed him on the list last time around -- the team announced before Tuesday's contest with the Braves. 

Manager Mickey Callaway was asked about Familia's health on Tuesday, and he didn't give a straight answer...

The Mets delivered some more bad news on OF Brandon Nimmo. 

After a second opinion from Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles, Nimmo has been shut down from baseball activities for the next month, per manager Mickey Callaway. Dr. Watkins also gave him a second epidural shot. 

As of now, Callaway added "there hasn't been any talk of surgery," to repair the bulging disc in his neck. It is worth noting Watkins is the same doctor that dealt with David Wright's spine issues.

After being scratched from the lineup while rehabbing with Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo is in Los Angeles Monday to meet with noted spine specialist Dr. Robert Watkins, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post

Watkins is the same specialist who treated David Wright while he was dealing with his spine issues. 

Nimmo was in New York on Saturday, with manager Mickey Callaway and GM Brodie Van Wagenen updating the situation.

Robinson Cano (quad) appears to be getting closer to returning from the IL. 

The second baseman, who was on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse, was with the Mets on Saturday in Citi Field testing his left quad in the outfield and taking batting practice prior to the game. 

According to GM Brodie Van Wagenen and manager Mickey Callaway, Cano was going through his pregame routine and they would assess on Sunday whether or not he is ready to be activated off the injured list.

The Mets (33-36, 7.5 GB in NL East, 5 GB of second Wild Card) fell to the Cardinals Friday night, twice, losing a suspended game, 5-4, then the regularly scheduled game, 9-5. They return to face the Cardinals on Saturday at Citi Field at 7:10 p.m. 

Here's what went down on Friday, in case you missed it:


After blowing the save in Thursday night's suspended game, Edwin Diaz returned for the 10th inning to pitch again only to allow another run and take the loss as well. In the regularly scheduled game, it was Jeurys Familia who cost the Mets, blowing a one-run lead in the eighth by allowing four runs, including two home runs, in a 9-5 loss.

Brandon Nimmo was removed from Syracuse's lineup just before Friday's game against Gwinnett with neck soreness.

The 26-year-old was slated to play center field and bat leadoff tonight for Syracuse, but he was replaced by Rajai Davis just before first pitch. Nimmo was out of the lineup on Thursday, but he played in the first two games of the Mets' series with Charlotte.

Nimmo was originally placed on the 10-day Injured List on May 22nd with neck stiffness. He will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

The Mets are likely about to be close to full-strength, with Brandon Nimmo and Robinson Cano both in the middle of rehab assignments with Triple-A Syracuse and nearing returns to the big league roster.

And with the return of two everyday players will come two 25-man roster moves.

Here's how things could shake out and who the odd-men-out could be...

Robinson Canó remains out of the Mets' lineup on Saturday, but he did run on the field before the game and Mickey Callaway said he was hoping Canó would be available off the bench.

"He felt really good," Callaway said of Canó. "He continues to feel confident that he can run down the line. He's gonna swing the bat today again. Fielding ground balls he was great, range was good. We're hoping he's available late in the game like last night.

"I think there's improvement," Callaway added. "He felt really good yesterday too, but there was minimal improvement."

Manager Mickey Callaway said OF Brandon Nimmo was "progressing really well," and it showed during the St. Lucie Mets' game Thursday night. 

Nimmo went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in the first game of his rehab assignment. He was the designated hitter and hit leadoff. 

The 26-year-old has been dealing with neck stiffness that turned out to actually be a bulging cervical disc and whiplash following an MRI. Still, Nimmo was able to undergo baseball activity this week, and the Mets saw enough progress to send him south to begin his rehab assignment...

John Harper, SNY.tv | Twitter |

It was after midnight when a long-time scout of amateur talent finally had a couple of minutes to get on the phone, as the first day of the MLB Draft was coming to conclusion. I wanted to talk to this guy because it was only a few days ago that he had touted Brett Baty as one of a few players he was hoping his team would select. 

"He's about as dynamic a hitter as I can remember seeing when you consider his combination of power and pure hitting ability," the scout told me then. "I think he'll be there and he'd be a great get."

Turned out Baty wasn't there when that scout's team picked, because the Mets grabbed the lefty-slugging high school third baseman from Texas with the 12th pick Monday night.

Matt Kemp on joining Mets 00:01:23
New York Mets new outfielder Matt Kemp speaks from AAA Syracuse about joining the Mets and how he can help the team in the power department

Matt Kemp took a step closer to the Mets' roster on Friday, appearing in his first game for Triple-A Syracuse.

The 34-year-old veteran made his debut in the Syracuse Mets' lineup on Friday, one week after signing a minor-league deal with New York. Kemp was released by the Reds on May 4th, shortly after spending a stint on the Injured List for a broken rib.

Kemp went 1-6 with a single in the Mets' 13-4 victory over Pawtucket.

"I'm just happy to be back on the field," Kemp said before the game. "I haven't been playing ever since I broke my rib, so it's just good to get back out on the field and get my feet under me and play some baseball.

Amidst the wreckage of Wednesday night's devastating defeat for the Mets, Pete Alonso had a spectacular night in Los Angeles, as his two home runs tied him with Mark McGwire at 19 for the most ever by a rookie before June 1.

Oh by the way, Dom Smith raised his batting average to .370 with a 3-for-5 night in his first start in left field.

Make no mistake, there is no dilemma here, at least as it applies to first base: Alonso is the real thing and should be the Mets' middle-of-the-lineup slugger for the next decade or so. He has a chance, if healthy, to someday surpass Darryl Strawberry as their all-time home run leader.

Mark your calendars or set up a smartphone alert, baseball fans - the first leg of the Subway Series is speeding toward us.

But before the Yankees and Mets meet for the first time this season June 10-11 in the Bronx, both clubs have work to do, particularly the Mets. Both have to get healthier, too, because we want to watch the likes of Didi Gregorius and Jeff McNeil when the teams meet.

That way, you can have a fuller picture of your favorite team when you begin smack-talking relatives from Brooklyn to Bergen County to Battery Park.

Nimmo updates neck injury 00:01:31
New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo gives an update on his neck injury diagnosis after seeing a doctor.

The Mets placed Brandon Nimmo on the IL on May 22 with his neck stiffness persisting and an MRI revealing inflammation. But the injury isn't just inflammation.

Nimmo, who first started dealing with the neck issue in mid-April (when he left a game against the Phillies due to a stiff neck), is also dealing with a bulging cervical disc and whiplash. 

"I'm 26 years old. I had never had neck problems like this before," Nimmo told MLB.com's Anthony DiComo . "I take a lot of really good care of my body to try and prevent that stuff from happening, to warm it up. And so I was just like, 'Man, why does this keep happening?'"

The Mets are adding even more outfield depth by signing former All-Star Matt Kemp to a minor-league deal, pending a physical. He'll initially report to Port St. Lucie.

Kemp was released by the Reds three weeks ago after Cincinnati acquired him from the Dodgers in December.

The 34-year-old, who was an All-Star just last season, was hitting .200 with one homer in 62 plate appearances with the Reds this season. Before he was released, he was placed on the injured list retroactive to April 22 with a broken rib.

With exactly one half of the Mets' regular starting lineup on the IL, it makes sense for them to get a bit creative when it comes to their lineup construction between now and when Michael Conforto, Jeff McNeil, Robinson Cano, and Brandon Nimmo return.

While Wilson Ramos (catcher), Pete Alonso (first base), Amed Rosario (shortstop), and Juan Lagares (center field) will start most days, the Mets need to shake things up elsewhere. 

Mets manager Mickey Callaway hinted over the last two days about what some of that creativity could look like. Here are four lineup ideas the Mets should consider as they wait for their injured players to return...

The Mets are now without exactly one half of their regular starting lineup.

A day after Jeff McNeil expressed optimism he would be able to return to the lineup Thursday after sitting on Wednesday due to hamstring tightness, McNeil -- who has not yet had an MRI -- has been placed on the 10-day IL.

McNeil said Thursday that he feels the injury is minor and that he hopes to be back as soon as the minimum 10 days are up.

Rajai Davis pinch-hit HR 00:00:20
New York Mets outfielder Rajai Davis hits his first career pinch hit home run in his first ever Mets at bat to give Mets a 6-1 lead.

Playing for seven different teams in his 14-year career, one would think Rajai Davis has seen it all in the baseball world. But debuting for his eighth team in the Mets on Wednesday night was definitely one he will never forget. 

Davis has been playing for the Triple-A Syracuse Mets, and he woke up this morning in Allentown, PA like any other day. He arrived at Coca-Cola Park, and began warming up to face the Lehigh Valley Ironpigs -- the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate. But while taking his BP, Davis was told that he was actually getting called up. 

The 38-year-old thought it was a joke, but it turns out Brandon Nimmo was put on the IL after an MRI revealed inflammation has been causing his neck stiffness. And the news came less than two hours before first pitch at Citi Field. So Davis had to pack his things as fast as possible, and hightail it to Flushing to join the big club...

Smith open to other positions 00:02:06
New York Mets first baseman Dom Smith is open to playing other positions but could catcher actually be an option?

Since Spring Training, the Mets have made it a point to say Dominic Smith is being viewed by the team as primarily a first baseman. That meant no outfield reps for the 23-year-old, even though he told the team he wanted to do so. 

Fast forward a few months and the Mets have been left no choice but to consider Smith for outfield time considering the recent injuries to players like Michael Conforto, Brandon Nimmo, and Jeff McNeil

Manager Mickey Callaway admitted to the media before Wednesday night's game against the Nationals that Smith could be featured in the outfield if need be.

Brandon Nimmo was penciled in to leadoff and man center field for the Mets on Tuesday night, but then he was scratched as the team announced neck stiffness sat him down. 

After Tuesday's dramatic 6-5 victory, Nimmo said that he'll have an MRI on Wednesday and that his neck stiffness from earlier this season never totally went away.

"I'm a little bit concerned about it, but we're hoping that we'll find some answers tomorrow," Nimmo said. "It's been going off and on since really Philadelphia.

Marlins blank Mets 00:00:44
The Mets managed just one hit against Pablo Lopez, whom they knocked out in New York last week, as the Marlins shut them out, 2-0

The Mets fell to a season-worst four games under .500 after failing to muster any offense or fight on Saturday in Miami. >> Box score

Five things to know about Saturday's game...

1) With manager Mickey Callaway's job status potentially in a precarious spot, the Mets gave an absolutely listless performance as they managed just one hit while losing their second-straight game to the MLB-worst Marlins. It was their fourth-straight loss overall. After Jeff McNeil led the game off by doubling off Marlins starter Pablo Lopez, 14 consecutive Mets were set down as he settled into a groove. This was the same Pablo Lopez the Mets scored 10 runs against last week.

The Mets (20-20, 3.5 games behind Phillies in NL East) try to get back over .500 when they continue their three-game set against the Nationals (16-25, 8.0 games behind Phillies) Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. on SNY.

The Mets have lost 8 of their last 10 games. They're 17-20, have won just one of their last 10 series, and currently sit 4.5 games back of the first-place Phillies. However, they're also about to get 16 straight games against teams below .500, 10 of which will be in their home ballpark.

"What we're doing right now is not acceptable," manager Mickey Callaway said after Wednesday's loss in San Diego. "We have to do better. We can't all of a sudden score a few runs one game and everything is OK. We have to continue to do it."

Thankfully, Callaway's team will play the Marlins next, who have the league's worst record. Then it's the Nationals, who may be the league's most disappointing team, the Marlins and Nats again, and finishing off with the Tigers.

With the Mets at 17-20 and 4.5 games behind the Phillies for first place in the NL East, the team is in a dangerous spot. It's still very early, but if they don't right the ship soon, things could begin to spiral out of control.

And one of the reasons the Mets are 17-20 at the moment is the fact that they have gotten almost impossibly bad performances from a handful of players who were expected to be key contributors.

Those struggles are detailed below, with us breaking down what's going wrong and determining just how worried the Mets should be about each...

Two weeks ago the Mets seemed to have no need for Jed Lowrie. No room, either. Now, suddenly, with the free-agent infielder finally ready to play, his new team is hoping desperately he can provide exactly the type of offensive spark Brodie Van Wagenen had in mind when he signed him.

For that matter, as badly as the slumping Mets need Lowrie to deliver offensively, it's fair to say Van Wagenen might need it even more.

There is plenty of blame to spread around, obviously, as this team has fallen off a cliff in going 4-10 over the last couple of weeks, beset by problems in all phases of the game.

The Mets couldn't finish their road trip on a high note, as they fell to the Padres, 3-2, at Petco Park on Wednesday afternoon. > Box score

Six things to know about Wednesday's game...

1) Wilmer Font made his Mets debut this afternoon, and he did a solid job over four innings. In 60 pitches, Font allowed two runs on three hits while collecting one strikeout and no walks. The Mets should feel fine with sending Font back out to start if they need him to moving forward.

After missing the first month and change of the season due to a knee injury, the Mets could be getting Jed Lowrie back on Friday when they return to Citi Field.

When it comes to playing time after Lowrie returns, it should shake out like this most days: Lowrie at third base (relegating the struggling Todd Frazier to the bench), Amed Rosario at shortstop, Robinson Cano at second base, Pete Aloso at first base.

When it comes to who the Mets remove from the 25-man roster to make room for Lowrie, things get trickier. Here are the likeliest potential roster casualties:

Noah Syndergaard takes the ball for the Mets as they try and snap a four-game losing streak on Tuesday against the Padres at Petco Park 10:10 p.m. on SNY. 

Mets notes

The Mets' four-game skid is the first time they have lost four in a row since July 31-Aug. 3 last season. ... The Mets' offense continues to struggle, scoring just three or fewer runs in each of their last six games, the longest streak since the club scored three or fewer runs in 11 consecutive games last June. ... Brandon Nimmo is looking to bust out of an 0-for-26 slump in the seventh spot while Todd Frazier is 2-for-his-last-26 and batting eighth. ...Robinson Cano is one hit shy of career No. 2,500, which would make him the sixth player from the Dominican Republic to reach that mark.

The bad news is the Mets look like the same train wreck we witnessed during manager Mickey Callaway's first season in 2018. The good news is that, despite being 16-19, they're just 3.5 games back of the first-place Phillies, who are 19-15.

We also know from 2015 and 2016 that in, MLB success is often dictated not by how a team starts but by how they finish. In 2015 they began the year 13-3, dipped to 36-37 in late-June, but after several midseason additions and winning 62 percent of their final 60 games, they reached the playoffs and got to the World Series.

The same turnaround happened in 2016, but ended with a loss to the Giants in the Wild Card game. The point is that it's early, there are still 127 games to be played, all sorts of trades, injuries and luck will play out and, though it may seem hopeless, there are still plenty of chances for the Mets to turn things around and have a successful season.

The Mets will look to avoid being swept in Milwaukee on Sunday with Jason Vargas taking the mound for the 2:10 p.m. first pitch. 

Mets notes

It's been quite the up-and-down season for Brandon Nimmo. He's hitless in his last six games and is currently in the midst of an 0-for-22 skid since April 28, but is batting third Sunday. ... The Mets have scored three or fewer runs in their last four games and they've scored 26 runs over their last 10. The team is hitting .212 during that stretch. ... Pete Alonso hit his 10th homer Saturday tie up the game at 2 in the ninth. Eight of his homers have come in the seventh inning or later, which leads the Major Leagues. Alonso leads all rookies in home runs, RBI (27) and OPS (.994). ... Even against a right-handed pitcher, the Mets have Robinson Cano, Michael Conforto and Jeff McNeil (all lefties) on the bench after Saturday night's 18-inning marathon loss.

The Mets (16-16, 2.5 games behind the Phillies in the NL East) dropped the first of a three-game road series against the Milwaukee Brewers. They prepare to face the Brewers again on Saturday at 7:10 p.m. in Milwaukee.

Here's what went down Friday, in case you missed it:


Steven Matz did not have his best outing, but still managed to go 5.2 innings allowing just three runs but the offense was unable to back him up in a 3-1 loss to the Brewers

Mickey Callaway, Michael Conforto and Steve Matz comment on the Mets disappointing 3-1 loss to the Brewers on Friday night

Earlier in the season, the Mets had no problem putting up runs as they got some shaky performances out of their starting pitchers.

Now their pitchers have turned things around and the offense has gone cold. After averaging 5.6 runs through their first 23 games, the Mets are averaging just 2.6 runs over their last nine and scored just one run in Friday's loss at Milwaukee.

There's no debating that Pete Alonso is having the best start to a career among the thousands of players to wear the Mets uniform.

Thankfully for him, he's doing it at a time when Mets fans are seeking an heir to the throne left behind by David Wright. He's also doing it during the social media age, through which we get a better look into his personality and popularity than would have been the case had he broken out at any other point in history.

In a season when much of the attention in the National League has been on San Diego's much-hyped rookie Fernando Tatis Jr., it's Alonso that won the league's Rookie of the Month for April.

The Mets and Reds will play the second leg of a four-game series Tuesday at 7:10 p.m. on SNY.  

Mets notes

Brandon Nimmo returns to the three-hole after hitting there Monday. With Jeff McNeil settling into the leadoff role, the Mets have been experimenting with Nimmo's spot in the order. He's batting .316 over his last 18 games. ... Michael Conforto's eight-game walk streak is the second longest active streak in the league, behind Houston's Alex Bregman. Conforto currently has a .408 on-base percentage. ... Pete Alonso can tie Jeff Kent's franchise record for RBI in April by driving a run Tuesday, which would be his 26th RBI of the year. ... The Mets' early-season situational hitting has taken a tumble. After leaving on 10 baserunners Monday against the Reds, they entered Tuesday with the a league-leading 225 runners left on base this year. ... After being hit on the hand Sunday, Robinson Cano is out of the lineup for the second straight day.
