Devon Travis Smashes Grand Slam In Loss

We haven’t heard the name of Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis in a while, but the 27-year-old hasn’t done much of note as of late. Until Wednesday, that is. In a 9-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves, Travis finished 1-for-3 with a grand slam. It was Travis’ first bomb since June 24. Travis... Read More

Another Extra-Base Hit For Amed Rosario

Either New York Mets shortstop Amed Rosario is beginning to play to his potential, or he just really likes Philadelphia Phillies pitching. In a 4-2 win on Wednesday, Rosario finished 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored, a walk, and one stolen base. This comes a day after Rosario picked up three hits, including two... Read More

New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom was his dominant self yet again on Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies, but yet again the Mets were the Mets and couldn’t get him the win. deGrom pitched eight scoreless innings, allowing only five hits and a walk while striking out seven in the no-decision. The game was... Read More

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak could legitimately be waking up. We’ve seen teases from him previously this season before slumping again, but he’s definitely looked better at the plate now than he has for some time. In a 6-2 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday, Smoak finished 1-for-4 with a home run, his... Read More

Marcus Stroman Rebounds Against Atlanta

Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman was rocked by one of MLB’s worst offenses on July 4 -- the New York Mets -- but rebounded against one of baseball’s best -- the Atlanta Braves -- on Tuesday. Go figure. Stroman earned the win by pitching 6 2/3 innings, allowing only one earned run on... Read More

Wilmer Flores Stays Hot With A Double

New York Mets infielder Wilmer Flores has had quite a few days. First, he broke the Mets franchise record for walk-off hits when he beat the Philadelphia Phillies with a home run on Monday. Since then, Flores has stayed hot with two doubles in each of his last two games. While this is apt to... Read More

Amed Rosario Triples Twice In Loss

New York Mets shortstop Amed Rosario hasn’t had the best 2018, but every once in a while he gives us a flash of what made him one of the top prospects in all of baseball. In the a 7-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday, Rosario finished 3-for-4 with two triples, two runs scored,... Read More

New York Mets pitcher Drew Gagnon made his Major League debut on Tuesday against the Philadelphia Phillies, and it did not go well. Gagnon only lasted 4 2/3 innings pitched in the 7-3 loss, allowing six earned runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out two. He allowed two home runs on the... Read More

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Nearing Return

Toronto Blue Jays phenom third base prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. should be nearing a return from a strained left patellar tendon, and when he does he will likely be promoted to Triple-A Buffalo soon. Guerrero has been out since early June, but has kicked things up recently with more baseball activities and is going to... Read More

Dominic Smith’s OPS Falls To .547

With the way New York Mets first baseman/outfielder Dominic Smith is struggling this season, you might actually have to admit attempting to get anything out of Adrian Gonzalez at the start of the year was actually a good idea. The former top prospect has been an abomination for the Mets, and that continued in an... Read More

Kevin Plawecki Remains Ice Cold

New York Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki was once among the better hitting catching prospects in baseball, finding success with the bat at just about every minor league stop. That success hasn’t translated to the Major Leagues, even though 2018 was his best chance to do so after platoon-mate Travis d’Arnaud went down for the year... Read More

Corey Oswalt Pitches Well But Takes Loss

New York Mets pitcher Corey Oswalt got the call for a spot start in the second game of a doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday, and he certainly did what he could despite taking the loss. Oswalt picked up the quality start by pitching six innings, allowing three earned runs on one hit and... Read More

New York Mets infielder Wilmer Flores has a knack for getting the big hit in walk-off victories, and on Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies he did it again to become the franchise’s all-time leader in base knocks of that variety. Mired in a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the 10th inning, Flores drilled a... Read More

Asdrubal Cabrera Socks 16th Homer Of 2018

The New York Mets didn’t provide a ton of offense (as usual) in a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday, but second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera gave them all he had. Cabrera was the only Met with multiple hits, finishing 2-for-4 with a home run and a double. The long ball was Cabrera’s 16th... Read More

New York Mets starting pitcher Zack Wheeler has been pitching well as of late, but he was unable to keep the stretch going on Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies. He wasn’t bad in this one, especially from a strikeouts perspective, but he just wasn’t as sharp as we’ve seen. Across 4 2/3 innings pitched, Wheeler... Read More

New York Mets outfielder Michael Conforto tailed off again after seemingly finally getting things going near the end of June, but over the last few games he’s found some mild success. On Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays he didn’t have the best game, finishing 1-for-4 with three strikeouts, but the effort did extend his... Read More

New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom once again had a lights-out performance but failed to pick up the victory due to the Mets complete inability to score. deGrom was at it again on Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays, dominating them to the tune of one earned run on four hits and a walk... Read More

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez didn’t light the world on fire on Friday against the New York Yankees, but he did extend his hitting streak to five games. In a 6-2 victory, Hernandez finished 1-for-5 with a double, an RBI and one strikeout. For the season, Hernandez is up to a .260/.310/.512 (.823 OPS)... Read More

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak had a hot series against the Detroit Tigers from June 30 through July 2, knocking in two home runs and a double. When Smoak plummeted back to his disappointing ways with an 0-for-7 series against the New York Mets, we thought maybe there was a chance it was... Read More

Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Sam Gaviglio was not a recommended fantasy play on Friday against the New York Yankees, and while he didn’t fully deliver, he did enough to keep his team in the game. Gaviglio only lasted 4 1/3 innings pitched (tossing 101 pitches), allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and... Read More

New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom has been pitching out of his mind all year long, so it came as a shock when he allowed three earned runs in each of his last two starts -- coming against the Los Angeles Dodgers and Miami Marlins. deGrom will look to get back to his one-run-or-less... Read More

Not all that long ago, Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Sam Gaviglio was looking like a solid streamer option in most matchups. His first few Major League starts went well, including throwing seven scoreless innings against the New York Yankees, but then things started to go south a bit. He did rebound very well in... Read More

Toronto Blue Jays utility player Darnell Sweeney has been outrighted by the Blue Jays to Triple-A Buffalo. By doing so, Sweeney is now off the team’s 50-man roster. He had been previously been optioned on Monday. Originally called up on June 29 to provide depth after the Jays traded outfielder Steve Pearce to the Boston... Read More

The New York Mets are no longer exploring trade options for starting pitchers Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom and instead are exploring scenarios for fellow starting pitchers Zack Wheeler and Steven Matz. Although this route would not net the Mets the best possible prospects, it didn’t sound like there were jaw-dropping deals available to them for... Read More

New York Mets infielder T.J. Rivera (elbow) will make his return on Thursday, serving as the designated hitter for High-A St. Lucie. Rivera tore his UCL in 2017 and tried to rehab the injury prior to surgery but eventually opted for Tommy John surgery, which he underwent last September. Rivera played in 73 games last season,... Read More

New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes (hip, quadriceps) started to take part in baseball activities on Thursday. This comes after he started running at the team’s spring training complex in Florida on Monday, so that must have gone off without a hitch. You can’t say that with respect to many things involving Cespedes this season,... Read More

New York Mets starting pitcher Jason Vargas has been out of action since late June with a calf injury, but as he continues on the road to recovery he’ll pitch a simulated game on Saturday. He already threw a simulated game this past Tuesday, so it’s great news that Vargas felt well enough to progress... Read More

Marco Estrada Has Mild Glute Strain

Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Marco Estrada left Tuesday’s start against the New York Mets after only 12 pitches due to hip soreness, but now we know a little bit more. Initial X-rays on the hip were negative, but an MRI revealed Estrada has a mild gluteus strain. As of now, we don’t know what... Read More

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak looked to be coming out of his season-long funk at the end of June when he picked up two home runs and a double in the span of three games against the Detroit Tigers. Perhaps it was the Tigers that seemed to temporarily wake Smoak up and not... Read More

Kendrys Morales Homers, Doubles In Loss

Toronto Blue Jays designated hitter Kendrys Morales had a scorching month of June, then slowed down a ton towards the end and the start of July. On Wednesday against the New York Mets, however, Morales once again brought out his big bat and was ready to smash. In a 6-3 loss, Morales finished 3-for-4 with... Read More
