Mets outfielder Michael Conforto (shoulder) spoke to reporters Saturday afternoon and said he'll likely return to baseball activities in about six months.
"The general outline is six months, that's what both doctors said," Conforto said of the timetable to return. "It's not a set deadline, I guess. When I see the doctor again in a couple of weeks, we'll see where I'm at , see where my range of motion is, see where the strength is and kind of go from there."
Conforto, who dislocated his shoulder and tore the posterior capsule during a swing on Aug. 24 against the Diamondbacks, underwent surgery in Los Angeles two weeks ago to correct the issues.

The Mets will be going into the offseason with a lot of question marks, but one thing is clear: they need more starting pitching. Sandy Alderson has said in interviews that he will be looking for someone who can be counted on for a lot of innings, which probably means they would be steering clear of high-ceiling starters with injury issues, such as Michael Pineda and Lance Lynn.
The sticker prices on Yu Darvish and Jake Arrieta will probably deter the Mets, so who are some mid-level starters they should have their eye on?

Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard will return from the disabled list to start Saturday's game against the Nationals at Citi Field, and will pitch one inning, GM Sandy Alderson said on Friday.
Alderson added that Syndergaard will be limited to one inning even if he doesn't throw a lot of pitches, with Matt Harvey replacing him in the second inning.
"This rehab process is both physical and mental," Alderson said. "Based on Noah's feedback, he feels good physically. We just want to get him back on a mound, if for only a moment ... so he's back out there, re-familiarized with the circumstances."

SNY's Mets Insider goes behind the September scenes at Citi Field as the New York Mets wrap a tough season and look ahead to the Hot Stove.
This past week on SNY's Mets Insider, Keith Hernandez said if Juan Lagares can hit hit just a bit more, that because of his outstanding defense, he is still viable as an everyday center fielder.
"If he can hit .260, he can play for me any day," Hernandez added.
In 163 games played since the start of 2016, Lagares has started just 80 times.

Mets LHP Steven Matz pushed himself to pitch through pain, but instead ended up choosing surgery, he recently told James Wagner of the NY Times.
"Ultimately, it was my decision," Matz is quoted as saying. "I wanted to go out there and pitch because I'm so sick of being on the D.L. And I did everything I could."
Matz missed the first two months of this season with what was described as elbow inflammation, the result of which may have been a side effect of the bone spur surgery that ended his 2016...

It is unlikely that infielders Asdrubal Cabrera and Jose Reyes are both back with the Mets next season, an anonymous team official told Newsday beat reporter Marc Carig.
"Probably unlikely, but possible," the source said.
According to Carig, of the two, Cabrera is more likely to be back than Reyes, though team officials acknowledge that both men could have value next season as utility players.

Mets starting pitcher Rafael Montero allowed five earned runs, seven hits and two walks Wednesday afternoon during a loss to the Marlins in Miami.
"I felt good, I think they were just able to make adjustments. They weren't falling for my changeup," Montero said after the game. "I think they were aware of my changeup early on, so they weren't biting or swinging at it and instead going for my sinker and slider."
In the third inning, Montero tossed a 93.8 mph fastball that Marlins 1B Justin Bour hit for a two-run home run. It was the first home run Montero had allowed in six starts...

Danny Abriano, SNY.tv | Twitter | On July 26, 2012 in Arizona, Matt Harvey made his presence felt, striking out 11 Diamondbacks in 5 1/3 scoreless innings while allowing three hits and walking three in his Mets debut.
Harvey, who many scouts projected to be a No. 2 or No. 3 starter, took it up a notch after arriving from Triple-A Buffalo, featuring wipeout sliders that reached the low-90s, fastballs that sat between 95 and 97 MPH and at times ticked higher, a plus changeup, and a plus curve.
With the Mets In the midst of their fourth-straight losing season, Harvey was not only a legitimate ace, but the first real glimmer of hope for the team as Sandy Alderson's rebuild took shape...

The Mets have two veteran infielders who are having good second halves -- Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera. With the way the roster is currently constructed, one of them will probably find himself with the team next year, possibly even with a starting role. Which one has the better case?
Cabrera followed up a stellar 2016 campaign as the Mets' starting shortstop with a rough first half of 2017. At the All-Star break, he had just a .736 OPS, and his defense was terrible. Moreover, he had made headlines by asking to be traded after the team asked him to move off shortstop. At the time, it seemed highly unlikely he would remain a Met much longer, despite a team option that would allow him to return in 2018 for just $6.5 million...

Syndergaard said after Monday's simulated game that he doesn't want to rush his return.
"I don't want to try to rush it and jump back out there too early because it is kind of a serious injury," Syndergaard told reporters. "I've also heard a lot of stories of people re-injuring themselves. I want to make sure that doesn't happen. I know the team is taking precautions, pull the reigns back a little bit. I respect that."

Dodgers bench coach Bob Geren could find himself the front-runner to replace Terry Collins, whose contract is up at the end of this season, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
"The former A's manager may have a leg up on taking over the managerial job with the Mets if they decide to part ways with Terry Collins, which seems inevitable," Cafardo writes. "GM Sandy Alderson has always had a fondness for Geren, who was the team's bench coach until he headed west for family considerations. But the manager's job would likely lure him back to New York."
According to multiple reports in August, Collins had been telling people he was unsure if he'd return to managing after this season. Similarly, there have not been any reports indicating Collins and the Mets have discussed a contract extension beyond this year.
This post was originally published Sept. 5, 2017...
Lately, Mets manager Terry Collins has acted so mellow, so indifferent to the losing and injuries, that it seems to me that he's accepted he will not be back next season. And, interstingly, he also seems OK with it.
According to multiple reports, Collins has told people he's unsure if he'll return to managing after this season. There have not been any reports indicating Collins and the Mets have discussed a contract extension.
Basically, it's time. His job here is done.
