Todd Frazier (ribs) was able to hit off of a tee on Sunday and will begin "more intense baseball activities" within the next couple of days.

It sounds like the 32-year-old third baseman is progressing toward a return. Prior to landing on the disabled list on July 9, Frazier was hitting .217/.300/.385 with 10 homers, 32 RBI and five stolen bases in his 61 games.

According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, Zack Wheeler remains the most likely Mets' starter to be traded prior to this month's trade deadline.

Heyman notes that at least six teams have expressed interest in Wheeler thus far. The 28-year-old has shown flashes, but has been inconsistent overall this season, registering a 3-6 record, 4.44 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 106/40 K/BB ratio over 107 1/3 innings. He's still under team control through the 2019 season though, so the Mets may get something of value in return, which they likely wouldn't have if he would have been a short-term rental.

Mets placed RHP Noah Syndergaard on the 10-day disabled list with hand, foot and mouth disease.

Seriously. It's believed that he contracted the disease while helping out at a youth camp. The Mets are hopeful that he'll miss just one start. The good news, is that at least there's no physical ailment that he'll need to work his way back from this time. it's unclear who will start in his place against the Padres next week.

Buster Olney of ESPN reports that the Brewers, Indians and Phillies are among the teams interested in Mets' second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera.

They join the Mariners and Diamondbacks as teams that have already expressed interest in his services. The 32-year-old is set to hit free agency at season's end and is almost certain to be flipped before the end of the month. He's hitting .280/.332/.487 with 17 homers and 53 RBI on the season.
Jul 22 - 4:40 PM

Mets recalled RHP Paul Sewald from Triple-A Las Vegas.

He's taking the roster spot vacated by Jeurys Familia. Sewald holds a 5.05 ERA in 28 appearances this season.
Jul 22 - 3:05 PM

Matt Ehalt of The Record hears the Mariners have expressed interest in infielder Asdrubal Cabrera.

Cabrera has also reportedly drawn interest from the Brewers and Diamondbacks, and perhaps others, as he continues to produce at the dish in a walk year. The 32-year-old is hitting .280/.332/.487 with 17 homers and 53 RBI on the year. The Mariners' interest makes sense, given that Robinson Cano won't be eligible for postseason play after serving a suspension for performance-enhancing drugs.
Jul 21 - 5:14 PM

Yoenis Cespedes will undergo an MRI and is set to see a foot specialist early next week for continuing heel issues.

Cespedes returned to the Mets' lineup Friday and homered, but the high was short-lived -- he was back on the bench Saturday with foot issues, and now it sounds as though the issues are not to be taken lightly. Lower-body issues have become the norm for the slugger, who has aged very quickly in recent years. Despite only being activated Friday, Cespedes may be headed back to the DL, depending on how things go next week.
Jul 21 - 4:44 PM

Mets acquired 3B William Toffey, RHP Bobby Wahl and international slot money from the Athletics for RHP Jeurys Familia.

Toffey was a fourth-round pick of the A's in the 2017 MLB Draft and was ranked as the No. 17 prospect in the Oakland system by MLB.com at the time of the trade. He'd spent all of the 2018 season with High-A Stockton, batting .244/.357/.384 in 48 games. It's a nice flyer for the Mets in exchange for the last few months of Familia's services.
Jul 21 - 4:22 PM

Michael Conforto clubbed his 12th home run of the season, but it wasn't enough to lead the Mets past the Yankees on Saturday afternoon in New York.

Conforto opened the scoring in the ballgame with a solo shot off of Yankees' starter Sonny Gray in the second inning. He also drew a walk in the contest, finishing the day 1-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting .221/.346/.381 with 12 long balls and 34 RBI on the season.
Jul 21 - 4:15 PM

Steven Matz struggled in Saturday's loss to the Yankees, allowing five runs on nine hits over his five-plus innings of work.

Matz struck out three and walked one on the afternoon. He began the day with three scoreless innings, but the Yankees broke through with a four-run rally in the fourth inning to take control of the game. They tacked on a final run before chasing Matz in the sixth. He'll carry a 3.65 ERA and 1,29 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
Jul 21 - 4:15 PM

Mets acquired RHP Bobby Wahl, 3B William Toffey and international slot money from the Athletics for RHP Jeurys Familia.

Wahl, a fifth-rounder of the A's in the 2013 draft, has been terrific this season, his first since undergoing thoracic outlet surgery last August. The 26-year-old has a 2.27 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 65/17 K/BB ratio over 39 2/3 innings at Triple-A Nashville. He could find himself in New York, and possibly in a high-leverage role in a pedestrian Mets bullpen, in short order.
Jul 21 - 4:15 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera was ejected from Saturday's game against the Yankees by third base umpire Hunter Wendelstedt after throwing his bat.

Cabrera took exception to a check-swing call that went against him and tossed his bat in disgust, earning him the quick hook. Cabrera had been 0-for-3 before departing.
Jul 21 - 2:47 PM

Yoenis Cespedes was held out of the Mets' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Yankees.

Cespedes made his long-awaited return on Friday, and homered in the game, but told reporters afterwards that he's unsure if he can finish the season due to calcification in both of his heels. Mets' manager Mickey Callaway noted that Cespedes came in pretty sore on Saturday, which is why despite having the benefit of a designated hitter, Cespedes isn't in the lineup. It seems like the Mets are going to proceed cautiously here.

Tim Tebow - OF - Mets

Mets' minor league outfielder Tim Tebow was removed from Friday's game at Double-A Binghampton with an injured right hand.

The Mets announced that Tebow will visit a hand specialist early next week. The 30-year-old has astoundingly held his own at Double-A this season, slashing .273/.336/.399 with six homers and 36 RBI. He still has way too much swing-and-miss in his game though, registering a 103/22 K/BB ratio in 298 plate appearances. He remains a longshot to ever crack the big league roster.
