Series preview: Mets vs. Rockies

A look at the upcoming series between the New York Mets and the Colorado Rockies, who come in with an extremely powerful lineup.

Luis Severino looked very good in his two scoreless innings of relief during the Yankees' 4-1 loss to the Astros. Severino, who began the year as a starter, could be part of the solution in replacing Aroldis Chapman. Severino could become a setup man. Long-term, though, Severino is supposed to be a future starter, which presents the same issues the Yankees have had in the recent past with guys like Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes.

Cespedes crushes Wainwright pitch 447 feet (0:37)

Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

Pretty epic battle between Adam Wainwright and Yoenis Cespedes in the seventh inning. Wainwright was riding a string of eight quality starts in his previous nine outings and he has regained manager Mike Matheny's trust late in games, so he was facing Cespedes even though his pitch count had gone over 110 with two runners on in the seventh inning. After Cespedes fouled off a good high fastball on 3-and-2, Wainwright hung a curveball on his 117th pitch and Cespedes hit it off the facing of the second deck for a two-run home run, his 22nd, that gave the Mets a 4-3 lead.

Mets people say other teams are still asking for the moon in trade proposals. Perhaps there will be more progress this weekend, they speculate, once teams get more reasonable.
