Mets GM Sandy Alderson on José Reyes rejoining the team after his suspension under MLB's domestic abuse policy: "I did meet with José personally. We talked for about an hour; the domestic abuse issue was the focal point of that conversation. I came away feeling that he had taken responsibility for this mistake on his part. That he was remorseful. He has paid a penalty for this, both financially and in terms of his career. He is committed to ongoing counseling and support of organizations working against domestic abuse. In addition to this personal meeting we had a lot of internal conversations. Jeff Wilpon was directly involved in this every step of the way. We are aware of the possible controversy this would generate. At the same time, José was a member of the Mets organization for 12 years. He was signed at 16-years-of-age and was a solid citizen during all that time. Not just as an organization, but as a place where José grew up, almost as a surrogate family, we felt he deserved a second chance, and that second chance was most appropriate with us, a place where he spent a lot of his formative years."

Nick Tepesch has not been the fifth starter the Dodgers were looking for. The right-hander has given up five runs on seven hits through three innings of his Dodgers debut at Pittsburgh.

Dodgers starter Nick Tepesch has 39 big league starts, but if you don't know much about him, you're not alone. "Really, I don't know a whole lot about Nick," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "I know he's a big guy, he's performed well here in Triple-A since we got him and he's made 39 starts so I'm as curious as everybody else is."
