• With Ruben Tejada struggling, Mets manager Terry Collins started utility infielder Justin Turner over Tejada at shortstop on Tuesday for the second time this season. It marked the fourth time in six games that Turner has cracked the starting lineup, with two starts at first base and one at second.
• Matt Harvey shrugged off the notion of a Sports Illustrated jinx on Tuesday, after he became the first Mets player to appear on the magazine's cover since Johan Santana in 2008. Harvey appeared under the headline: "The Dark Knight of Gotham."
• The Mets announced Tuesday that they have signed right-handed pitcher Matt Fox to a Minor League deal. A former first-round Draft pick, Fox made four big league appearances with the Twins and Red Sox in 2010. He was 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA in four starts and one relief appearance for York (Pa.) of the Atlantic League, with 18 strikeouts and three walks in 17 innings. Fox will join the rotation at Triple-A Las Vegas.
