Mets starter Robert Gsellman discusses his outing against the Brewers on Saturday, May 14. Garza has gotten off to an excellent start, coming off back-to-back gems in his last two outings, striking out ten without walking a single batter in a pair of Milwaukee victories.

If experts were asked where the Mets would be on May 11, after losing Syndergaard, Cespedes, Matz, Lugo, and Travis d'Arnaud to the disabled list, the likely answer would not be consistent with a team now in second place in the National League East and only a game and a half out of the second Wild Card spot.

"Just wash it down after I take a shower and move forward", Gsellman said after allowing 12 base runners in four-plus innings. Jose Reyes made his first career appearance in the outfield, playing one inning in center before moving to shortstop for the remainder of the game.

Conforto hit just.220 last season and was not on the roster when Syndergaard threw seven innings of two-hit ball and Bumgarner threw a four-hit complete game in the Giants' 3-0 win on October 5. They did it on the strength of an eight-run fifth inning, which was capped by Shaw's homer with two on and two out.

"How we've been using Corey I think is the best way for us", Counsell said. We've got you covered. Since throwing a gem against the light hitting Braves in his 2017 debut, the Mets are 1-4 in Harvey's subsequent five trips to the hill. "It's been shocking to me".

Matt Harvey is guilty of a lot of stuff, but he didn't lost the game yesterday.

The city quickly referred the prosecution to the state attorney general Thursday to avoid a potential conflict of interest. While local prosecutors declined to press charges, Pennsylvania law allows for private criminal complaints to be filed.

"I'm pretty concerned", Collins said of Gsellman.

For Matt Harvey, Friday night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers was an opportunity to make things right with his teammates and New York Mets fans.

If the Mets (16-19) are going to avoid a sweep, they will need ace Jacob deGrom to get his act together Sunday after two straight uncharacteristically shaky starts.

Mets closer Jeurys Familia had a successful procedure Friday to fix a blocked artery near his right armpit. After missing the playoffs three of the previous four seasons, their lone postseason berth a loss to the Houston Astros in the 2015 American League wild card game, they adopted a paradigm of developing their minor league system and constructing from within, a model that was central to the franchise making it to six World Series and winning four from 1996 to 2001.

"We have our ups and downs, everyone does", Gsellman said.

Asdrubal Cabrera's double error in the second led to the Brewers scoring an unearned run. After Harvey walked Domingo Santana to lead off the bottom of the second inning, Jett Bandy hit an RBI-double. In Queens, the Mets' starting rotation, which was once considered the next great staff in baseball, was in crisis with injuries and drama. It was a needed contribution from the struggling catcher, who entered batting only.083.
