Mets' John Mayberry Jr. slugs third home run in victory on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) John Mayberry Jr. came through with a big two-run home run for the Mets on Friday, as they defeated the Braves 5-3. Mayberry's fourth-inning blast, his third of the season, proved to be the difference in the score.

"It's nice to be clicking offensively, for sure," Mayberry said, per ESPN.com. "Offense is part of the game that I guess is definitely contagious, and when you get a couple guys that are going well, then I think the rest of team can [follow]."

Mayberry also singled and scored later in the game, as he was getting a rare start in left field with a lefty on the mound.

"We know he can do damage and tonight was a good night for him," manager Terry Collins said after the game.

Even with the big night, the outfielder is hitting just .196/.274/.393 with two home runs and seven RBI in 56 at-bats.

Collins has said Lagares is expected to be back in the starting lineup on Friday against the Brewers.

"Last night obviously was cold and he was still a little stiff, but he felt better," Collins said, per ESPN.com. "You're just saying, 'Geez, nine hours from now we've got to be back here. How much better can it be in nine hours? ... If you give him 30 hours, there might be a significant improvement. Will it be 100 percent [Friday]? Probably not. But it will be a hecukva lot more improved that I don't know if he'll aggravate it as much as he would if he dove for a ball today and jarred himself again."

Tanaka's two-seamer not fast enough as Yankees fall to Mets


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/25/2015) After not allowing a run in his first two spring starts, Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka was touched for three runs (two earned) on four hits while striking out seven in 4 2/3 innings against the Mets on Wednesday.

Tanaka gave up a home run to Mets left fielder John Mayberry in the fourth inning.

Tanaka has been working on a two-seam fastball this spring which has resulted in a lower velocity.

“The reason I’m not throwing much is that a lot of the four-seamers have been hit last year during the regular season,” Tanaka said. “So I’m doing this on purpose, I’m working on the two-seamers purposely.”

While Tanaka said he’s basically throwing all two-seam fastballs this spring, he still intends to use his four-seamer during the regular season.

“I think there’s room for both [fastballs],” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Mets GM Sandy Alderson delves into reasons for 'quiet' offseason


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2015) While the Mets have been linked to trade rumors involving Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond, the team has had a relatively quiet offseason. The Mets' top signings have been Michael Cuddyer and John Mayberry Jr.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson did his best Monday to explain why the team hasn't been overly active this offseason.

"We expect to take the next step forward as well," Alderson said on MLB Network on Monday, per NJ.com. We won 79 games last year, which was an improvement over the year before but we need to take a bigger jump next season. One of the reasons we've been quiet in the offseason is that we have quality players at every position. They're not all proven above-average major league players, but we're at the point now where we have to give them an opportunity to perform.

"We've got players with the potential to improve us by 10 games, which is what we need. So we're comfortable going into spring training and excited actually to see those players and see what kind of step forward they take and whether that can translate into 10 or 12 games for us in the win column."
