One Novice Mets Stud Starts to Soar as the Other Falls Down


Mets building block was very successful at this weekend, but it definitely wasn’t so good for another one.

At the same time as the first rookie Dominic Smith continued to make progress and went 2 against 5 with RBI, Amed Rosario showed poor results, as he hurt his right index finger, his result is 8 to 6 to the Astros at Minute Maid Park on Sunday.

Head Terry Collins, who told Rosario has struggled with it most of the year, I think, feared the 21-year-old may miss a few days. The crew said Rosario hurt the finger swaying on the second play of Saturday’s doubleheader. X-rays gave a negative reaction, and he formally is listed day-to-day. With this, the baseball odds for the Mets should not be affected in all major sportsbooks.

It happened during the second play yesterday. The only thing is it wasn’t bloated, Rosario said via an interpreter, when noting it happened wadding.

Then Sunday, I felt it once I started batting, Rosario told, shrugging that nothing particularly affected the finger. Only keep an eye on it daily.

For some positive news, the Mets turned to Smith, who has 5-of-13 in the games with three RBIs, single homer, and a few doubles.

He’s starting to swing a lot better. He’s getting the bat out, doing good damage, Collins told.

Smith underlined that it is a question of comfort and monitoring.

Coming in every day, attempt to learn all, learn the pitchers. It needs time to get fixed. Guys stuff is nice here, they throw harder, much more movement, Smith claim. It took me a few weeks to be accustomed to it.

Since the trembling factor, that, in reality, wasn’t a problem.

I had more of a thrilling feeling in springtime trainings than when I first was called up. That thing doesn’t bother me, Smith claimed. It’s a hard game and every day, you don’t get a pause. You’re playing against the greatest players in the planet. Triple-A, Double-A, you may face an ace every single week, a top prospect here and therein. You’re not coherently getting what you have to be ready for what you encounter up here.

Mets novice and loser Chris Flexen (3-4) has nine hits and seven runs in four supplies, a second direct clunker. But Collins told the only way to surmount is to pitch over it.

You’ve has to go pitch. You’ve got to understand how to cope with it, learn how to pitch over it. That’s right why we ran him out there in the fourth, Collins told, noting Flexens craggy five-run third.

One unlucky Sunday was the Mets wanted Flexen rocking ahead. He usually got 0-1 then fell behind.

I apparently got ahead of guys pretty far, threw a lot of strikes, Flexen told. That’s a really nice lineup one over nine. Tried to pitch to hook up today and was burned.

Nori Aoki in his second play as a Met made three hits, a walk, two RBIs, two strokes. He’s always been a great hitter, Collins said. Astros friend Carlos Correa returned for his first play since July 17. Correa had been on the invalid list for a torn damage in his right thumb and surgery. He went 1 to 3.

Lost in the attack barrage was a breathtaking play by Juan Lagares to ending the third. He came over from center, derived a ball off the side in the left and threw away balance and on the run to third, hammering Tony Kemp going for a triple.

He’s a Gold Glove, has got a strong arm and has getting game time, Collins told.
