• Alderson said the team will not alter rookie starter Jacob deGrom's workload for as long as he is pitching at his current level (a 0.66 ERA over his last four starts). The Mets may ultimately skip deGrom's rotation spot or even move him to the bullpen, with an eye toward keeping him under a soft limit of 185 innings. But "right now," Alderson said, "I don't think we want to interrupt the flow that he has going, the success that he's had."
• Murphy received his Heart & Hustle Award from the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association prior to Monday's game against the Phillies. By winning the Mets' Heart & Hustle Award, Murphy became eligible for the league-wide edition presented later this year.
• SNY will move its broadcast booth to Citi Field's Shea Bridge for Tuesday's game against the Phillies. Broadcasters Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling have worked outdoors three times previously at Citi Field, all from the right field Pepsi Porch.
• Left-hander Dana Eveland left Monday's 7-1 win over the Phillies with one out in the ninth inning after Ben Revere's comebacker struck his left elbow. He exited after a brief mound visit from Collins and a team trainer, but X-rays were negative.
"It hit me right on the tip of the elbow, which scared me at first," said Eveland, who broke the same elbow in high school. "I'm hoping I wake up tomorrow and it feels fine."
