• Right-hander Zack Wheeler may make two more starts this season, Mets manager Terry Collins said. Wheeler has thrown 168 2/3 innings between the Mets and Triple-A Las Vegas this season, 19 2/3 more than he did a year ago, and the Mets do not want him to exceed last year's total by much more than 30. Wheeler is next scheduled to pitch Monday in Cincinnati.

• Infielder Justin Turner is "still a few days away" from returning from a strained right hamstring, according to Collins. Turner has not appeared in a game since Sept. 10.
