PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — New York Mets infielder Robinson Cano had a youthful perspective after reporting to spring training.
"I feel like I'm 25," the 36-year-old All-Star second baseman said Sunday, a day ahead of the team's first full-squad workout.
Cano took a physical and held a news conference. He took over the spot in the clubhouse that used to belong to Mets captain David Wright, who retired because of neck and back injuries.
NEW YORK (AP) — Brodie Van Wagenen has certainly been busy since changing careers.
Heading into his first spring training as Mets general manager, the former player agent has already engineered a major roster overhaul that has New York eyeing the playoffs in a beefed-up NL East.
NEW YORK (AP) — Making another move to bolster their bullpen, the New York Mets agreed to a $10 million, two-year contract with left-hander Justin Wilson.
The agreement was disclosed to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the negotiations who spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the agreement was subject to a successful physical.
Wilson will get $5 million annually and also can earn performance bonuses.
NEW YORK (AP) — Wilson Ramos had a grip on the New York Mets from the moment he walked into their winter meetings suite in Las Vegas last week.
"It was his handshake," new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen recalled Tuesday at the catcher's introductory news conference. "As some of you may get to know, this guy has really big, strong, strong mitts here for hands."
NEW YORK (AP) — Jeurys Familia would rather be a setup man for the New York Mets than a closer for someone else.
Familia had 123 saves for the Mets, who traded him to Oakland last July. He instructed agents Sam and Seth Levinson to pursue any possibility to return to the Mets.
"Honestly, that was my goal, be back with the Mets," Familia said during a conference call Monday, three days after his $30 million, three-year contract was finalized.
NEW YORK (AP) — Jeurys Familia and the Mets finalized a $30 million, three-year contract on Friday, bringing the reliever back to New York, where he figures to serve as a setup man for newly acquired closer Edwin Diaz.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The revamped New York Mets bullpen is set to include a very familiar face — longtime reliever Jeurys Familia.
Familia reached agreement on a $30 million, three-year deal late Wednesday night with the team that traded him away last summer. The contract won't be complete until he passes a physical.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Seattle manager Scott Servais hopes his team can find success rebuilding with youth much the way the AL West rival Oakland Athletics have done.
A flurry of offseason trades by general manager Jerry Dipoto sent lots of stars out of the Pacific Northwest in the past month.
NEW YORK (AP) — Wearing red Santa's helper hats, Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz got right to work for the New York Mets — as elves, handing out presents to school kids during the team's holiday party at Citi Field.
A day after the club added the star second baseman and ace closer, new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen offered a gift to all Mets fans, too.
"We did not make this move to have it be our last move," Van Wagenen vowed Tuesday.
SEATTLE (AP) — Mariners fans have waited longer than any supporters in North America for a return to the postseason.
General manager Jerry Dipoto is asking Seattle to wait a little bit more.
Dipoto continued a whirlwind reshaping of the Mariners' roster Monday by sending Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz to the Mets and Jean Segura, James Pazos and Juan Nicasio to Philadelphia. In exchange, Seattle received a bundle of prospects and freed up significant salary space for after the 2020 season.
NEW YORK (AP) — Aiming for an instant upgrade after two failing seasons, the New York Mets and their rookie general manager turned to a most familiar face.
The Mets made a splash — that much was certain — when they acquired eight-time All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano and major league saves leader Edwin Diaz from the Seattle Mariners in a seven-player trade Monday.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies acquired two-time All-Star shortstop Jean Segura from the Seattle Mariners for veteran slugger Carlos Santana and infielder J.P. Crawford on Monday.
The Phillies also get left-hander James Pazos and righty Juan Nicasio in the trade.
"Shortstop was an area we didn't get a lot of production," Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said. "Segura moves the needle for us as far as win expectancy."
SEATTLE (AP) — The Mariners' offensive woes have been the chief culprit for their fall from AL playoff contention. Those struggles showed up again Tuesday night, only furthering Seattle's fade from the wild-card race.
Wil Myers lined an RBI double off major league saves leader Edwin Diaz with one out in the ninth inning, lifting the San Diego Padres to a 2-1 win and dropping the Mariners 8 1/2 games back in the race for the second AL wild card.
SEATTLE (AP) — Dee Gordon says it's too early for the Seattle Mariners to be worried about the wild-card math. He thinks they should just concentrate on winning games.
Nelson Cruz and Denard Span hit back-to-back home runs, and Seattle overcame sloppy infield defense to beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 on Wednesday night.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais kept his word to Edwin Diaz, matching the closer's flashy haircut following a milestone save over the weekend.
Servais had promised he'd get a styled cut similar to Diaz's if the closer got 50 saves. Diaz notched his 50th save on Saturday, and Servais sat in the chair for Diaz's personal barber Tuesday.
PHOENIX (AP) — Edwin Diaz had a rare night of struggles, facing runners on the corners with no outs in a one-run game. A rundown and two fly outs later, the Seattle closer reached a rare milestone.
Now it's time for Diaz's manager to get a haircut.
Diaz worked out of a jam in the 10th inning to become the 17th player in big league history with 50 saves in a season and Denard Span hit a solo home run in the top half to lift the Mariners a 4-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night.
PHOENIX (AP) — Edwin Diaz was thrilled to set a Seattle Mariners franchise record with his 49th save. He's really looking forward to the next one, though.
Maybe a little more than manager Scott Servais — who has promised to match Diaz's funky haircut when his All-Star closer reaches No. 50.
"I want to get my 50 to see the haircut," Diaz said after he closed out Seattle's 6-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. "If I do it here on the road I will bring the barber."
HOUSTON (AP) — Edwin Diaz was supposed to be off on Sunday after earning saves in each of the last three games for the Seattle Mariners.
Instead, after the Mariners tied the Houston Astros in the ninth inning, the All-Star closer told bullpen coach Brian De Lunas to call the dugout to say that he wanted to try to make it four in a row.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Just the night before, Seattle had felt the sting of a late Los Angeles comeback. For the season, the Angels had taken 10 of 16 games from the Mariners.
But on Saturday night, Seattle reversed the story line, rallying with five runs in the eighth inning to beat Los Angeles 6-4 behind a three-run homer from Kyle Seager and five hits from rookie Mitch Haniger.
