Aug 23, 2015 1:25 AM

David Wright went 0-for-4 with an RBI and a strikeout and played six innings at third base for Class A St. Lucie at Palm Beach on Saturday.

Barring any last-minute setback, Wright is due to be activated from the DL on Monday in Philadelphia, Mets assistant GM John Ricco said earlier Saturday, before Wright played in that final rehab game.

Harvey (11-7, 2.57 ERA) currently sits at 154 innings after missing the entire 2014 season.

Signed Photos Of Wilmer Flores Crying Sell Out

Aug 21, 2015 3:48 PM

Signed photos of Wilmer Flores crying on the night he thought the New York Mets had traded him have sold out.

Steiner Sports, the company that had the shortstop sign the photos at a signing this month, said Friday that all of the 8-by-10-inch signed photos ($70) and the 16-by-20s ($90) have been purchased.

The photo is of a reflective Flores with tears in eyes as he walks in the dugout on July 29 during a game versus the San Diego Padres. Word had circulated through Twitter during the game that Flores was getting traded with Zack Wheeler to the Milwaukee Brewers for Carlos Gomez.

The trade was never completed.

Collins Isn't Worried About Uncertain Future With Mets

Aug 17, 2015 7:03 AM

Terry Collins believes the New York Mets have a bright future with their young starters, but isn't sure if he'll be around to experience it.

"That's a good question. I don't have an answer for it," Collins said when asked about his future.

His contract as manager is set to expire after this season.

"I have no idea," Collins said when asked if he thought an extension would be discussed during the season. "I'm telling you, I don't think about it. I think about playing golf in November. That's the only thing on my mind right now."

The Mets entered the week in first place, 4.5 games ahead of the Washington Nationals in the National League East.

When the extension question was put to the club's hierarchy, a team spokesman said, "We'll address it at the proper time."

Jose Reyes Would Like To Finish Career With Mets

Aug 12, 2015 11:51 AM

Jose Reyes says he's open to finishing his career with the New York Mets.

Since leaving the Mets as a free agent after the 2011 season, Reyes has played for the Miami Marlins, Toronto Blue Jays and, now, Colorado Rockies.

Reyes still keeps a home on Long Island and lives there in the offseason.

"It's not that easy," Reyes said of returning to the Mets at some point. "I'd love to -- not now, because I have two more years on my deal. But I'd love to finish my career here in New York. I have some great memories here."

Mets Keeping Conforto Despite Cuddyer's Return

Aug 10, 2015 6:15 PM

The New York Mets have activated Michael Cuddyer from the disabled list, but have decided to keep top prospect Michael Conforto on the Major League roster.

Eric Campbell was sent down to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room for Cuddyer.

In 11 games cine being promoted from Double-A, Conforto is hitting just .222.

"[Conforto's] handled himself very well, and I think as much as anything one of the things that gives us confidence about his continued playing time is the way he's played in left field," Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. "We're very happy with what he's done."

Yoenis Cespedes Could Get $100M On Free Agent Market

Aug 10, 2015 6:52 AM

There won't be a lot of bats available on the free agent market this winter, which bodes well for Yoenis Cespedes.

He is coming off a four-year, $36 million deal and, according to one agent, a five-year, $100 million contract isn't out of the question.

Cespedes Open To Long-Term Deal With Mets

Aug 5, 2015 5:14 PM

Yoenis Cespedes has been a member of the New York Mets for less than a week, but he's open to the idea of a long-term deal with the franchise.

It's worth noting that he's unlikely to remain with the Mets, who may be unwilling to pay him market value as a free agent this offseason.

"This is something I can't control," Cespedes said through an interpreter Tuesday. "I don't know what the front office is thinking about. But with what I see so far, I would love for everything to work out and stay as a Met for a long, long time, because I like the atmosphere."

Since Sandy Alderson took over as general manager after the 2010 season, the Mets have only handed out two contracts worth more than $60 million in total. Cespedes is a prime candidate for a nine-figure deal this winter.
