A-Rod returns, Yankees fall to Blue Jays (1:23)

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Julio Urias, 19, will make his major league debut with the Dodgers on Friday in New York VS Mets. He did not allow a run in his last 26 inning in the hitter friendly PCL....the Dodgers AAA affiliate. He was promoted to LA with an overall 1.10 ERA. He has a mid-nineties fastball., a Wipe out knee buckling curve ball and fading deceptive change up. He has the ability to change eye levels, add and subtract velo on all his pitches and keep the ball out of the middle of the plate. He has the poise and composure of a 10-year veteran and was considered the best left-handed pitching prospect in minor league baseball. The only question left is how the teenager will handle the pressure of making his major league debut in New York City against the defending NL Champs New York Mets in a close to sold out CitiField and millions of people watching on TV. Most scouting reports say he can handle the pressure......We'll soon find out.

Mets could be active on trade market

New York likely has its eyes set on a return to the World Series, meaning the team could look to make some upgrades at this summer's trade deadline. Jim Bowden sees the Mets as a good match for Angels closer Huston Street, A's C Stephen Vogt or Brewers 1B Chris Carter. Top trade candidates, best fits (Insider)

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Struggling reliever Chasen Shreve is going on the DL with a shoulder issue. He is being checked by doctors to figure out the severity.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Does Matt Harvey have shoulder weakness or fatigue? Why do I ask? Innings 1-3 his ERA is 3.03; innings 4-6 his ERA is 9.89. Pitches 1-25 opponents hit .212 against him and pitches 51-75 they bat .424 against him. In addition, velocity of all pitches decline accordingly. Pitch selection 2nd and 3rd time around the lineup could be a factor but not enough to explain the vast differential. These facts should not be ignored by the Mets in diagnosing his struggles.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

As expected, Mark Teixeira is out of the lineup with neck spasms. Teixeira did not start Wednesday night and has received a cortisone shot to try to deal with the issue. Backup catcher Austin Romine is playing first with lefty J.A. Happ on the mound for the Blue Jays.
