The Mets have won three straight, and sent Bartolo Colon to the hill looking to boost that streak to four on Wednesday against the Padres. Colon lasted just 2 1/3 innings and allowed six earned runs, including back-to-back home runs in the third. Lucas Duda has homered for the Mets.
The Mets have made multiple low-profile moves in advance of Friday's trade deadline, but they reportedly landed a big fish Tuesday night. New York has acquired outfielder Carlos Gomez from Milwaukee in exchange for injured starter Zack Wheeler and recently benched infielder Wilmer Flores.
Jets cornerback Dee Milliner was beset by injuries last season, but will start 2015 healthy after gaining clearance to practice Tuesday. Milliner appeared in just three games last season due to ankles and Achilles injuries, but will be on the field when the team starts training camp Thursday.
The Jets opened camp Wednesday, and offensive lineman Willie Colon, running back Stevan Ridley and defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson are among those who were placed on the active/PUP list. Dee Milliner was not placed on the list as he battles back from an Achilles injury.
The Mets have upgraded their squad, but with less than 48 hours until the trade deadline, they reportedly have their sights set on further improving their offense. The club is in the market for "a big bat" with Jay Bruce, Justin Upton, Gerardo Parra and Carlos Gomez among those being considered.
Chris Capuano authored an awful outing Tuesday night, and it turns out it'll be the last in a Yankees uniform. Capuano was designated for assignment Wednesday, adding the contract of 26-year-old righty Caleb Cotham. Capuano walked five and allowed five runs in 2/3 innings in Texas.
Dainius Zubrus was one of the longest tenured Devils until Wednesday. The forward, who has been with the team since the 2007-08 season, was waived to terminate his contract. Zubrus posted 224 points in 554 games in New Jersey, scoring just four goals in 74 games last season.
