Worth noting

• Collins reiterated that he does not expect the Mets to make a trade prior to Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline. Though outfielder Scott Hairston has been linked to multiple teams in recent days, the Mets do not appear inclined to deal their most productive bench bat.

• Collins plans to rest third baseman David Wright either Tuesday or Wednesday against one of San Francisco's right-handed starters, Lincecum or Matt Cain. Wright has played in 99 of the Mets' 103 games this season.

• Santana (right ankle sprain) will return to the mound Thursday for a bullpen session, according to Collins. As long as all goes well, Santana should appear in one of the Mets' first few games on their next homestand, which begins Aug. 6.
