Series preview: Mets at Nationals

With Stephen Strasburg on the DL, the Nationals could call up rookies Austin Voth and Lucas Giolito to face the Mets this week.

No meeting has been scheduled - or agreed to - between the Knicks and Kevin Durant at this point, sources say. The Knicks are optimistic that they'll ultimately get consideration from Durant but they were not among the initial group of teams with whom Durant agreed to meet. The Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder are the first known teams to secure a meeting with Durant, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. Durant's ties to the Knicks include his strong relationship with Carmelo Anthony and the relationship between his agent, Rich Kleiman of Roc Nation Sports, and Knicks GM Steve Mills. Still, given that New York is not among the first group of teams with whom Durant has agreed to meet, it seems as if the club faces long odds to sign him.

Newly demoted Michael Conforto went 1-for-3 with a walk, strikeout and run scored in his first game with Las Vegas. Conforto started in left field on Sunday in a 6-4 loss to Sacramento.

José Reyes talks about being back in NYC: "It was amazing. I have to be honest with you guys. I was a little bit nervous there. I was a little bit emotional. I don't know what to expect. But I feel like people still love me. I know some people out there, they're going to be hard on me, and I respect that. I understand. I put myself in that situation. But like I said, I'll stand up here like a man and I made a bad mistake. That was a terrible mistake. I'll do everything I need to do to try to get better and we'll see what happens."

For fading Yankees, it doesn't get any easier from here

Forget losing to bad teams. The next stretch of games against good teams could be make-or-break time for the Yankees, who again looked broken Sunday.
