New York Teams

The New York Mets announce that catcher René Rivera was awarded to the Chicago Cubs on a waiver claim.

Joc Pederson's playing time seems most logically in jeopardy following Curtis Granderson's acquisition by the Dodgers, as Pederson was struggling mightily, batting .156/.253/.312 in 28 games since the All-Star break. Pederson wasn't widely owned in ESPN leagues (16.9 percent), but I've often reminded how at-bats are precious in "only" leagues. NL-only owners could consider Brandon Nimmo, who should see a corresponding rise in playing time. Nimmo's year has been disappointing but it makes a lot of sense for the Mets to play him somewhat regularly to see what they've got for 2018.

A decent mix of cheers and boos ahead of Giancarlo Stanton's first at-bat at Citi Field. Some loud ohhhs and ahhhs when the Marlins RF made contact for the first time (a hard foul ball to the stands high behind the first-base dugout), too. After working the count to 3-2, Stanton walked. This is his first game since his six-game home run streak came to an end Wednesday.

As the Marlins and Mets wait through a rain delay, let's take a look from the section where Aaron Judge homered Wednesday, 469 feet away.

No on-field batting practice at Citi Field ahead of tonight's Marlins/Mets game. There's a threat of rain -- and maybe the threat of a Giancarlo Stanton upper-deck blast.
