New York Mets’ Tylor Megill, 4 relievers combine for no-hitter vs. Philadelphia Phillies

New York Mets starter Tylor Megill and four relievers combined on the first no-hitter of the Major League Baseball season, teaming up to throw a whopping 159 pitches and defeat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-0 Friday night. Megill was pulled after five innings and 88 pitches. The bullpen took over from there, with Drew Smith, Joely Rodriguez, Seth Lugo and Edwin Diaz completing the second no-hitter in Mets history. With the crowd of 32,416 standing and chanting “Let’s go, Mets,” Diaz finished it off in style, striking out Bryce Harper, Nick Castellanos and J.T. Realmuto in the ninth — all of them swinging. “Team game,” Megill said. “I’m ecstatic. It’s crazy,” he said. “First one I’ve been […]

New York Mets acquire RHP Chris Bassitt from Oakland Athletics after All-Star season

All-Star right-hander Chris Bassitt, who made a remarkable recovery from a frightening line drive to the head last year, was traded by the Oakland Athletics to the New York Mets on Saturday for a pair of minor league pitchers. The Mets sent right-handers J.T. Ginn and Adam Oller to the A’s for Bassitt. Bassitt gives the Mets a much-needed starter for the middle of the rotation, seemingly a good fit behind aces Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer. The 33-year-old Bassitt came back to make two starts in late September, just more than a month after he took a 100 mph liner to the face on Aug. 17 in Chicago. The […]

New York Mets GM says his team had an understanding with the New York Yankees on hiring of Eric Chavez as hitting coach

Mets general manager Billy Eppler stated he spoke to Yankees general manager Brian Cashman well before hiring away Eric Chávez as the team’s hitting coach and that both sides had an understanding that Chávez might end up in Queens. Chávez, 44, was hired by the Yankees in November as one of two assistants to new hitting coach Dillon Lawson — and projected to take on a role beyond his title. A few weeks later, the Mets hired the 17-year big leaguer to be their primary hitting coach. Eppler said Monday that he was in contact with Cashman before the Yankees hired Chávez, and […]

Teen baseball prospect Elian Soto verbally agrees to join Washington Nationals

Elian Soto, Juan Soto’s younger sibling, has verbally agreed to join his brother’s Washington Nationals just days after declaring his intentions to sign with the New York Mets. Elian Soto, a 16-year-old outfielder and third baseman, wouldn’t be eligible to formally sign until next year’s international free agent class in January 2023. The younger Soto posted an Instagram video of him working out in full Mets gear on Dec. 31 and had reportedly been given a $50,000 bonus but has since changed course. Soto’s decision was first reported by Washington City Paper. The Nationals’ offer is believed to be bigger. The discrepancy in money […]

New York Mets hire Buck Showalter as new manager

The New York Mets have hired Buck Showalter as their new manager, team owner Steven Cohen revealed Saturday on Twitter. Showalter received a three-year contract, according to a person familiar with the deal. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the length of the agreement had not been announced. Showalter, 65, takes over for Luis Rojas, who was fired after a season in which the team held on to first place for 103 days but ultimately concluded 77-85 and missed the playoffs. Houston Astros bench coach Joe Espada and Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro also were candidates for the […]

New York Mets don’t sign first-round draft pick Kumar Rocker before deadline

The New York Mets did not sign right-hander Kumar Rocker, the 10th overall pick in the amateur draft, before Sunday’s 5 p.m. ET signing deadline. “This is clearly not the outcome we had hoped for and wish Kumar nothing but success moving forward,” Mets general manager Zack Scott said in a statement. “We’re excited about the players we have signed and look forward to watching them develop and contribute to the organization in the years to come.” Rocker, 21, whose dominance at Vanderbilt made him the most well-known college player in perhaps a decade, had an agreement in place to sign for […]
