3/29/2015 | Duda may be starting to solve lefties at plate

The one knock on Lucas Duda's breakout season is his history against left-handed pitchers. His same-sided production has waned even as his overall results have improved.

3/28/2015 | deGrom gets better of Strasburg, with help from long ball

3/26/2015 | Flores shakes off sore left foot against Nats

Wilmer Flores' return from a bruised left foot proved relatively uneventful in the Mets' 8-3 win over the Nationals on Thursday, But it just fine for Flores after missing three games with an injury that could have been much worse.


3/26/2015 | Mets prospect Bowman stellar in spot start

For Mets prospect Matt Bowman, receiving a last-minute callup for a spot start in Thursday's game was rewarding enough. Doing so against the Nationals, his favorite team since middle school, only added to the experience.


3/26/2015 | Mets' pitchers may hit 8th with Wright in mind
