Mets pinch-hitter Jose Reyes appeared not to run out a grounder to short in the seventh.
It looked like that to us, too, Callaway said. I went to talk to Rey-Rey, and he said he felt something out of the box and he was scared he was going to pull something. He kind of pulled up halfway. I thought that maybe he was frustrated, but he felt something coming out of the box.
Mets: RHP Noah Syndergaard (finger) and LHP Jason Vargas (calf) are expected to start against each other in a simulated game next week at Single-A Port St. Lucie.
Stroman (1-5) had not won since beating the New York Yankees last Sept. 24 in Toronto’s final home game of the 2017 season, but snapped a career-worst streak of six straight losing decisions.
Making his second start after missing 39 games because of a sore shoulder, Stroman allowed two runs and five hits, lowering his ERA from 6.80 to 6.20. The right-hander struck out four and didn’t issue a walk for the first time in nine starts this season.
The Mavericks and Hawks swapped Luka Doncic (No. 3 overall) and Trae Young (No. 5) early in the evening, and the 76ers surprisingly sent Mikal Bridges to the Suns after taking the Villanova star at No. But it was a smooth draft for the most part, especially in the second round with teams firing off picks at a rapid pace.
Here are the NBA Draft picks, complete with grades and analysis for each selection…
Selecting Ayton at No. 1 is understandable for a Phoenix franchise making its first-ever top pick. However, that doesn’t mean it was the best decision.
Ayton figures to be a productive NBA player, the kind of big man who can generate 20 points and 10 rebounds with regularity, but the concerns about how he fits the modern game are tough to sweep under the rug. The 19-year-old likely needs to be one of the five best offensive centers in the league to provide positive value in terms of his contributions to winning. That’s a tough benchmark. With both Luka Doncic and Jaren Jackson Jr., the top two prospects on our Big Board, available, it’s hard to give this selection an A.
