By releasing rookie Tom Hackett, the Jets are left with only one punter on the roster -- fellow Aussie Lachlan Edwards (4), a seventh round pick.

There he is, newly signed Ryan Fitzpatrick (14), stretching alongside Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg. Interestingly, Geno Smith was stretching in a different area, away from the QBs.

To make room for Ryan Fitzpatrick, the Jets waived P Tom Hackett. So much for Aussie vs Aussie punting competition.

Ben McAdoo was noncommittal on Victor Cruz prior to conditioning tests. Still seems likely he'll avoid PUP list. McAdoo said the 3 Giants that will begin training camp on PUP are DT Damon Harrison (knee), LB J.T. Thomas (hamstring) and DT Jay Bromley (ankle).

Giants' moves should pay off early

New York's spending spree could wreak havoc on the cap in a few years, but Dan Graziano is focused on the present right now. For 2016, the pricey new arrivals should be a big help. Moves with immediate impact

Youth is served as McCullers beats Yanks

Lance McCullers struck out 10 in the Astros' win over the Yankees on Wednesday. Over the last 40 years, only three pitchers have beaten the Yankees while recording 10 or more K's at a younger age than McCullers (22 years, 299 days old), the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

  • Moose Haas (21 years, 355 days on April 12, 1978)
  • Mark Prior (22 years, 274 days on June 8, 2003)
  • Matt Moore (22 years, 96 days on Sept. 22, 2011)

Thursday's Mets-Rockies lineups

Here are the lineups for Thursday's series opener between the New York Mets and the Colorado Rockies at Citi Field.

Terry Collins is not confident Jose Reyes will be able to return to the lineup on Friday, which had been the hope. Reyes suffered a strained intercostal muscle on his left side on Tuesday. "He was pretty sore last night when he left here," Collins said.

Terry Collins says the day off for Yoenis Cespedes is more than a prudent day off. The balky right quadriceps muscle has flared up. "My leg's pretty sore tonight," Cespedes told Collins late Wednesday. Collins said it's possible Cespedes' absence could last beyond one day.
