10/8/2015 | Johnson, Uribe trade turning point for Mets
Though the non-waiver Trade Deadline acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes and aggressive promotion of Michael Conforto highlighted the Mets' push, manager Terry Collins recognizes the July 24 acquisition of Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe from the Braves as the move that significantly influenced all else that went well for his club down the stretch.

It was not until late in the summer of 2012 that Jacob deGrom made what baseball development professionals consider one of a prospect's most significant leaps, the move from Class A to Class A Advanced. The last of a sizeable group of future Mets to reach that level, deGrom was a ninth-round pick with an improving fastball and a telltale scar on his right elbow, resting perpetually near the fringes of prospect radar screens.
