Mets say Matz, Lugo will each make another rehab start

Yoenis Cespedes is helped off the field by first base coach Tom Goodwin and a trainer on April 27

Lugo, on the other hand, earned three runs over six innings in his last outing in Double-A Binghamton, along with eight hits, two walks and seven punch outs.

Matz, 26, threw five flawless innings and struck out eight in an appearance for Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday.

On Friday, while Yoenis Cespedes was running the bases for St. Lucie Class A rehab game he suffered soreness in the right quad which will set back his return date with the New York Mets. "The key here is going to be that we have comprehensive understanding of him physically and have a program that provides the kind of maintenance he needs". That's good enough for the team lead and ties him for 10th in the NL.

After being diagnosed with a blood clot, Familia had surgery May 12 to fix a blocked artery near his right armpit.

Contrary to those reports however, Alderson said on Monday that he's pleased with the job Collins has done in the face of mounting injuries and unexpected setbacks.

The right-hander said he hopes to start throwing after visiting the doctor for a checkup in two weeks.

In the meantime, Tyler Pill will make his first major league start on Tuesday as the Mets look for their third straight win.

"It will definitely be exciting", he said. "I look forward to hopefully getting back to NY soon". He was a combined 4-1 with a 1.60 ERA in nine starts at Triple-A and Double-A. "Nobody is happy with the won-lost record".

Mike Puma of the New York Post reported the move is a "strong possibility" despite Mets manager Terry Collins saying no decision had been made. I think there are reasons for the record that we have that have nothing to do with Terry. "So I would hope in the future, that when people write about my views of Terry, that they'll actually ask me about my views".
