Worth noting

• Andres Torres was out of the starting lineup on Saturday after injuring his left knee and leaving Friday's game in the second inning. Collins said that Torres could play, but he opted to give him a day off to recover. He is listed as day to day.

• DePodesta said that all starting pitchers in the Mets' farm system are under a similar innings-limit structure, building from 90 innings the first year, 120 the next, 150 the third and 175-180 the fourth and final year.

"It's just a matter of when each of them are individually ready, and we're going to try not to rush them," DePodesta said. "We want them to rush our decision, sort of force our hand to the point where they just aren't going to get anything out of Triple-A anymore. But it's up to each one of those guys individually to make that happen."
