Mets, Hechavarria agree to minor league deal
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria and the New York Mets have agreed to a minor league contract with an invitation to big league spring training.
Hechavarria is a light hitter known for his defense. He gives New York a legitimate, established shortstop who could be a backup to young starter Amed Rosario. Even with a crowded infield, that's something the Mets were lacking as they opened spring training.
Mets sign INF Danny Espinosa to minor league deal
NEW YORK (AP) — Danny Espinosa and the New York Mets have agreed to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
The veteran switch-hitter gives the Mets even more depth in a crowded infield. He could be a backup option at shortstop behind Amed Rosario.
Espinosa spent last season in Triple-A with three organizations: the Blue Jays, Dodgers and Phillies. He was released by Philadelphia in August.

Nats shut out record 3rd game in row; Wheeler, Mets win 3-0
NEW YORK (AP) — The Washington Nationals tried everything: two straight bunts to begin the game, a hit-and-run play, plus a delayed steal. Once more, it added up to zero.
Bryce Harper and the Nationals were shut out for the third game in a row, something that had never happened since the team moved from Montreal, when Zack Wheeler and the New York Mets posted a 3-0 victory Saturday.
"The name of the game is to score runs," Harper said. "Just couldn't get it done."
Mets botch popup in 13th, Giants wind up with 2-1 win
NEW YORK (AP) — Mets left fielder Dominic Smith readily took the blame for plowing into shortstop Amed Rosario on the potential inning-ending play in the 13th inning that ended up costing his team the game.
Smith, a highly touted prospect who has been envisioned as the Mets' first-baseman of the future, was positioned in deep left field after a double-switch an inning earlier when San Francisco's Brandon Crawford lifted a lazy popup with runners on first and third and two outs.
Kid stuff: Mets rout Phillies 8-2 in Little League Classic
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Jason Vargas never talks to fans from the on-deck circle, just like major league teams never line up after a game and shake hands.
