NEW YORK (AP) — Allard Baird believes the New York Mets are ready to win now.

New York's rotation is headed by NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard, and it also includes Zack Wheeler, Steven Matz and Jason Vargas,
LEADING OFF: A’s-Astros wrap series, Mets-Cubs finish up
A look at what's happening around the majors Wednesday:
The Athletics wrap up their series at Minute Maid Park, trailing the AL West-leading Astros by 1 1/2 games going into the finale.

Bruce homers in return, Vargas pitches Mets past Nats 3-0
NEW YORK (AP) — Didn't take long for a refreshed Jay Bruce to get right back in the swing of things.
Bruce hit a two-run homer in his return from an extended stay on the disabled list, Jason Vargas tossed six stellar innings and the New York Mets beat Washington 3-0 on Friday night to hand the Nationals their second consecutive shutout.
Kid stuff: Mets rout Phillies 8-2 in Little League Classic
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Jason Vargas never talks to fans from the on-deck circle, just like major league teams never line up after a game and shake hands.
Put a big league game in a tiny park full of 11 and 12 year olds, though, and those kinds of customs get tossed aside.
NEW YORK (AP) — Jason Vargas has been placed on the 10-day disabled list by the New York Mets with a strained calf a day before his scheduled start against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
New York announced the move following an 8-3 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday night.
The left-handed Vargas is 2-6 with an 8.60 ERA in nine starts since opening the season on the DL with a broken right hand. He most recently gave up seven runs in 2 1/3 innings at Coors Field on Tuesday.
PHOENIX (AP) — The big bats in Arizona's lineup provided the power, the leadoff man the table-setting. The starting pitcher got the Diamondbacks through six innings with minimal damage, the defense had a couple of gems behind him, and the bullpen came through again.
As wins go, this one could not have followed the game plan any better.
ATLANTA (AP) — Brandon Nimmo drove in a big run in the ninth inning to give the New York Mets a three-run cushion.
They didn't want to give the Atlanta Braves a chance at another last-gasp rally.
"It's just kind of scary out there when the Braves come up in the bottom of the ninth and we're only up by two runs or so, especially on this road trip," Nimmo said. "We've had some tough losses, so to be able to get that last run was really big."
ATLANTA (AP) — The New York Mets have placed right-hander A.J. Ramos and infielder Wilmer Flores on the 10-day disabled list and activated right-hander Hansel Robles and catcher Kevin Plawecki from rehab assignments.
Heading into a doubleheader with the Atlanta Braves, the Mets added infielder Phillips Evans from Triple-A Las Vegas and brought in right-hander Gerson Bautista as Monday's 26th man.
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Mets probably won't skip Jason Vargas' next start.
Vargas returned to the rotation with five excellent innings, AJ Ramos pitched out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth and the Mets beat the Miami Marlins 2-0 on Monday night.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The New York Mets will skip struggling left-hander Jason Vargas' next turn in the rotation on Tuesday.
Manager Mickey Callaway said Friday that Vargas will instead throw a simulated game before the Mets host Toronto. Vargas is 0-3 with a 13.86 ERA since returning from surgery on his right hand.
Cordero, Villanueva, Hedges power Padres past Mets 12-2
SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego Padres rookie Franchy Cordero is putting on quite the power display.
The 23-year-old from the Dominican Republic hit a three-run homer estimated at 453 feet and Christian Villanueva added a two-run shot to back their fellow rookie Joey Lucchesi as the Padres roughed up Jason Vargas and the New York Mets 12-2 on Saturday night.
NEW YORK (AP) — Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler will begin the season in the minors after squandering an opportunity to secure a rotation spot during spring training.
New York optioned the oft-injured Wheeler to minor league camp Saturday. The right-hander, who has made only 17 major league starts over the last three years, gave up 22 hits and compiled an 8.10 ERA in 10 Grapefruit League innings.
