  • Sharebar

Here are yesterday’s top three stories from Mets-land.

Buster Olney tweeted yesterday that he thinks the Mets and Oakland Athletics would make great trade partners in a deal that would send Grant Balfour to Queens.

Balfour, 34, has been stellar out of the ‘pen for Oakland this season. He has seven saves and a 2.62 ERA in 37 games.

According to ESPNNewYork, R.A. Dickey is all lined up with his rest to pitch in the All-Star Game on July 10 in Kansas City.

July 10 would be a day that Dickey would normally be scheduled to start. He is 11-1 this season with a 2.34 ERA.

After about a week of confusion, Terry Collins told reporters yesterday that Jenrry Mejia is staying in the bullpen down in the minor leagues. Mejia’s role has been debated for years, and it heated up recently after he struggled in a few bullpen outings.

Mejia will likely join the Mets bullpen sometime later this season.
