Jacob deGrom set to make 2022 debut for New York Mets on Tuesday vs. Washington Nationals

New York Mets star Jacob deGrom will make his season debut versus the Washington Nationals on Tuesday, manager Buck Showalter said before a series finale against Miami. “I’m definitely excited,” deGrom said Sunday. “It’s been a long time. This has been a pretty slow process of coming back, so excited to be out there. Nerves haven’t really set in yet, but I’m sure Tuesday I’ll be pretty nervous and I have a feeling it’s going to feel like my debut.” The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner has not pitched for the Mets since July 7, 2021.

Max Scherzer, Jacob deGrom moving closer to return with New York Mets

Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom are moving closer to a return for the National League East-leading Mets. Scherzer, who injured his left oblique while pitching versus St. Louis on May 18, returned to New York after rehabbing in Florida and threw in the outfield at Citi Field before Tuesday night’s series opener versus Milwaukee. The 37-year-old right-hander, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, is expected to throw a simulated game Thursday. Scherzer stated he’s not ready to put a timetable on when he might return to the active roster. “The way to describe this injury, the rehab of this, half the battle’s getting back […]

Joc Pederson hits 3 home runs, drives in 8 as San Francisco Giants take wild one over New York Mets

Joc Pederson turned a pair of pregame chats with home run king Barry Bonds into the best night of his career. Pederson homered three times and drove in a career-high eight runs, counting a tying single with two outs in the ninth inning, and the San Francisco Giants outslugged the New York Mets 13-12 on Tuesday in one of the wildest games imaginable. “Just getting knowledge from such a good hitter and the way he thinks about baseball and hitting, it just helped to connect some dots to free my mind up at the plate,” Pederson said. “I’m not ever going to be Barry Bonds; he’s […]

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.

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 […]
