Five things to know about Tuesday's game...

Five things to know about Friday's game...

1) Noah Syndergaard got the start for the Mets, and though it began well, the ending didn't have the same result. Syndergaard allowed four runs, three earned on six hits including two long balls -- one three-run jack from former Met Neil Walker and a solo shot from JT Riddle. Though Miami made the best his mistakes, Syndergaard struck out eight along the way with his slider looking good.

There's a simple reason why Jorge Posada's return to a full-time job in baseball at 47 years old is coming with the Marlins and not the Yankees team for which he played his entire career: The Yankees didn't offer their former catcher a job.

"There was nothing official. They just wanted me to be a guest coach," Posada told the New York Post

The five-time All-Star and owner of four World Series rings said he was "not really" disappointed. "It is what it is. I'm OK," Posada said.

Derek Jeter has no patience 00:00:25
Derek Jeter doesn't want to put a time frame on the Marlins' rebuild, but at the same time, he has no patience for being a bad team.

Meet the new Boss, same as the old Boss.

As Derek Jeter begins his second full season as CEO and minority owner of the Miami Marlins, the 44-year-old Yankees legend is already displaying George Steinbrenner-like qualities despite the fact that the Marlins have undergone a full-blown rebuild since Jeter took charge.

"I have no patience," Jeter told reporters Monday. "I have zero patience. I've been preaching it. I don't have it."

How Yankees could get Machado 00:01:17
The New York Yankees have been linked to Manny Machado but would it benefit them if they traded rookie Miguel Andujar in order to get him?

John Harper, SNY.tv | Twitter |

Reports coming out of the winter meetings in Las Vegas on Tuesday have indicated that the Yankees might be willing to include third baseman Miguel Andujar in a potential blockbuster three-way trade with the Mets and Marlins.

The deal, which became the talk of the meetings on Monday night, would have the Mets sending Noah Syndergaard to the Yankees, while getting back catcher J.T. Realmuto from the Marlins.

Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen has made it clear he'd love to have Realmuto, but he doesn't seem willing to meet the Marlins' asking price, which would involve some combination of Amed Rosario, Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto.

The Yankees will reportedly not in serious trade talks with the Marlins for catcher J.T. Realmuto, according to MLB Network's Jon Morosi.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said last week that a report that indicated the Yankees were considering trading Gary Sanchez and replacing him with Realmuto "completely false" and reaffirmed his assertion that Sanchez, despite his struggles at the plate in 2018, was the team's starting catcher.

Add the Yankees to the long list of teams reportedly interested in Marlins catcher and potential Mets target J.T. Realmuto.

The Yankees have "showed interest" in trading for the 27-year-old All-Star, according to FanCred's Jon Heyman. The Astros and Dodgers are among other clubs who have had their eyes on Realmuto.

Derek Jeter and the Marlins appear to want Gary Sanchez in a big package that would need to include another top player from the Yankees, Heyman reported. Despite Sanchez's dismal 2018 season, that price would reportedly be too high for the Yankees.

If the Mets plan on adding a catcher this offseason, they may not need to look any further than within their own division. 

Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto has no intention of signing an extension with the Marlins, according to his agent, Jeff Berry. 

"I think he will definitely be wearing a different uniform by the start of spring training," Berry said Tuesday on SiriusXM radio.

Both sides have only begun talks, and multiple reports have stated they are "not close" to making anything happen soon. However, they have discussed ramifications to possibly send Stanton to New York. 

Stanton, who just told the Giants and Cardinals that he won't be heading to their clubs this offseason, has named the Yankees as one of the four teams he would waive his no-trade clause for.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and his brain trust will arrive in Orlando this weekend for the MLB Winter Meetings. Thus far, the Yankees have spent much of the offseason concentrating on filling their managerial opening and preparing a presentation for naught in their pursuit of Shohei Ohtani.

With Aaron Boone signed to lead the Yankees and Ohtani out of the picture, New York can concentrate on filling the minimal openings on the roster and potentially make some tweaks to open spots for rising youngsters or to free up payroll for other additions.

Here are some potential dealings (not to be mistaken for deals) the Yankees might be involved in next week:

Daily News Live: Stanton suitors 00:03:01
The Daily News Live crew discusses Giancarlo Stanton's decision to name the Yankees as one of four teams he would like to be traded to.

The Yankees are among four teams that Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton would approve a trade to, according to Sirius XM's Craig Mish.

The other three teams include the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros, according to Mish, who also notes Stanton's "desire to win has been greatly understated."

Stanton, the subject of trade rumors over the past few weeks as the Marlins reportedly look to cut $65 million from their payroll next season, has a no-trade clause in his 13-year, $325 million contract, and has not approved a trade to the San Francisco Giants or St. Louis Cardinals, two teams who have heavily pursued acquiring the 28-year-old MVP.

The Marlins have already reportedly agreed on the "general framework" in a deal with the Cardinals and Giants, and Stanton had met with both clubs, according to Mish, however it is unclear where they stand.

Matt Harvey allowed seven runs for the second time this month as the Mets were blown out by the Miami Marlins 13-1 on Monday at Marlins Park. >> Box score


Harvey (5-6) allowed seven runs, 12 hits and two walks in four-plus innings, as he continued to struggle since returning from the disabled list earlier in September.

In four starts this month, Harvey is 1-3 with a 13.19 ERA, as he has not pitched past the fifth inning in any of his four appearances. He threw a run-scoring wild pitch in the third inning that gave the Marlins a 2-0 lead and surrendered a three-run home run to Giancarlo Stanton in the bottom of the fourth inning that gave Miami a 5-1 lead.

Harvey left after surrendering back-to-back singles to begin the fifth, but relievers Tommy Milone and Hansel Robles couldn't stop the bleeding, as they combined to allow five runs and five hits in 2/3 of an inning.

In the seventh inning, with Jacob deGrom on the mound, rookie SS Amed Rosario scooped up a routine grounder and double tapped the ball to his glove before making a casual throw to first base.

The batter, Dee Gordon, who is among the fastest runners in the league, was safe.

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has a preliminary agreement to sell his team to a New York businessman, but the deal could fall through because the final purchase price hasn't been determined, a person with direct knowledge of the negotiations said Thursday.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Marlins have not commented publicly on the negotiations.

The preliminary agreement was for a purchase price of about $1.6 billion, the person said, but added that was before the prospective buyer did due diligence. The final offer by the potential buyer could be much lower, the person said.

Mets closer Jeurys Familia became the first player in franchise history to record 50 saves in a season with a 1-2-3 ninth inning during Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Marlins in Miami.

Familia broke Armando Benitez's previous Mets record of 43 saves in a season during August. He is the 13th player in MLB history to save 50 games in a season. By hitting No. 50, he also set the single-season record for saves by a Dominican pitcher, topping the 49 saves Jose Valverde recorded in 2011 and Francisco Cordero's 49 in 2004.

"I'm impressed with what I've been doing individually so far," Familia said after the game. "But, at the same time, I'm just trying to go out there and give it the best I can. I didn't say when the season started that I was going to save 50. No, I'm just trying to go out there and make sure to have fun and help the team any way I can for a win."

Latest Update

Rodriguez's publicist Ron Berkowitz released a statement Monday saying the veteran slugger will not play for any team for the remainder of this season. 

The statement said, "I want to put all of this talk to rest about Alex playing for any team this season... It's not happening. Like he said Friday night, he is happy and he is going to take some time to relax and hang with his family and friends."

Reports over the weekend said the Miami Marlins were possibly interested in signing Rodriguez.

The Miami Marlins are "probably a longshot" to sign Alex Rodriguez after the New York Yankees release him after Friday's game, according to Jon Heyman.

The Marlins, who lead the second wild card spot by half a game, have had internal discussions on whether to sign Rodriguez, who will be unconditionally released from his Yankees player contract after Friday and will return to his home in Miami for the remainder of the year, but according to Heyman, have not shown any evidence they will try to sign him.

Miami's interest largely depends on the health of first baseman Justin Bour, who has been out since July 6 with a sprained ankle, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro. Heyman says if the Marlins were to try to sign Rodriguez, it wouldn't be until rosters expand on Sept. 1.
