Here are this morning’s Mets links:

  • Yesterday afternoon, the Mets salvaged the third game in Washington, in part thanks to a fantastic two home run game from David Wright en route to a 9-5 victory. R.A. Dickey also recorded his 13th win of the season. (ESPN New York)
  • Mike Baxter is slowly progressing in his rehab. He has reportedly still not thrown yet, and only has a maximum of 16 days left on his rehab assignment. (@AdamRubinESPN)
  • Just when we thought the whole Matt Harvey vs. Miguel Batista thing was over, A source tells Mike Puma of the New York Post that if Batista is awful on Saturday, the Mets may turn to Harvey in the near future. (New York Post)
  • The Mets are going to go after the top tier relievers and only guys “who can actually have an impact.” (Star-Ledger)
  • Despite the Mets’ interest in the top tier of available relief pitchers, Sandy Alderson is set on not overpaying. He will not get desparate (like the Giants did in last year’s Carlos Beltran trade) and trade away top prospects for bullpen help. (ESPN New York)
  • Joe Janish at Mets Today loooks at what is separating Bobby Parnell from being a decent closer. (Mets Today)
  • There may be another bullpen option in Triple-A that we have been iignoring for quite some time. Fernando Cabrera is having a stellar season for Buffalo. Ed Ryan at Mets Fever makes the case for Cabrera. (Mets Fever)
  • The Mets take on the Dodgers tonight at Citi Field, when Aaron Harang faces off against Johan Santana. First pitch is 7:10. (MLB.com- Preview)
