Worth noting

• The Mets have extended their affiliation with Double-A Binghamton through the 2016 season, the team announced Thursday, taking their 21-year relationship with the B-Mets deep into a third decade. But it is widely expected that Triple-A Buffalo will not renew its affiliation, likely leaving the Mets in search of a Pacific Coast League affiliate.

• Matt Harvey will make his next start on turn, despite his impending innings limit and the team's six-man rotation. Harvey will start Tuesday in St. Louis, followed by R.A. Dickey on regular rest Wednesday. That schedule will push Jon Niese back to Sept. 7 against the Braves, giving him seven days' rest between starts.

• Ruben Tejada received a routine day off on Thursday, with Ronny Cedeno filling in at shortstop. "He looks tired to me," manager Terry Collins said, a day after Tejada went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts and two popups. "His swing is getting a little long."
