Worth noting

• Rob Johnson was behind the plate on Friday and said that his bruised right hand is no longer bothering him. Collins said that Johnson was never unable to catch, but that the injury bothered him when swinging the bat.

• The Mets signed right-handed reliever Drew Carpenter to a Minor League deal on Friday and assigned him to Double-A Binghamton.

Carpenter made six relief appearances for the Blue Jays this season -- he gave up five earned runs in nine innings of work -- before he was designated for assignment on Aug. 4.
