One day after Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler gave Mets fans a glimpse of their future, the team plans to cement another brick of that plan in place. First-round Draft pick Dominic Smith will officially sign with the Mets on Wednesday, the first baseman confirmed via his Twitter account late Tuesday night.
Considering David Wright is already the Mets' all-time hits leader, every milestone from here is simply gravy. The latest occurred Tuesday evening, when Wright rapped out a ninth-inning single for his 1,500th career hit. That extended his franchise lead and moved him into a tie for 593rd place all time.
In their continued quest for outfield improvement, the Mets acquired Eric Young Jr. from the Rockies late Tuesday night in exchange for right-handed pitcher Collin McHugh. Young will report to the big league team in Atlanta, possibly in time for Wednesday's game against the Braves.
As Matt Harvey completed his final work assignment of the day, debriefing around two dozen media members -- a larger-than-normal contingent -- following his afternoon start, Zack Wheeler sat quietly five locker stalls away. If the crush of clubhouse visitors bothered him, he did not show it, leaning back in his chair and thumbing through a cell phone.
Like a wise veteran, Mets starter Zack Wheeler cleaned up his own mess on multiple occasions to turn in six shutout innings in his Major League debut, but it was batterymate Anthony Recker who helped spark the rest of the New York offense in securing the top pitching prospect's first big league win, a 6-1 victory over the Braves to complete a doubleheader sweep Tuesday.
The Mets officially placed Justin Turner on the disabled list Tuesday with a strained left intercostal muscle, sidelining him for at least 15 days. Receiving an ultrasound-guided cortisone shot Monday in New York, he is currently waiting for its effects to kick in.
Fresh off the disabled list, Scott Atchison was prepared to help the Mets immediately. He jogged out of the bullpen during the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader at Turner Field, climbed atop the mound, threw three warmup pitches ... then walked off limping. The official diagnosis was a sore right groin.
Mets starter Shaun Marcum isn't just hoping for a good day at the ballpark, he needs one. The right-hander will try to notch his first win of the season when he faces Kris Medlen and the Braves on Wednesday at Turner Field.
With Zack Wheeler set to make his debut in the nightcap, Matt Harvey responded with one of the better performances of his already-sublime young career in Game 1, holding the Braves to one hit over the first seven innings of a 4-3 Mets win, before things grew hairy for him in the eighth on Tuesday.
