• Mets manager Terry Collins said he has no concern over the health of pitcher Shaun Marcum, who underwent an MRI on his ailing upper back this week. Marcum, who opened this season on the disabled list, is scheduled to pitch Saturday at Miller Park. Collins said Marcum "felt great" during his between-starts bullpen session, "so that was a good sign."
• Outfielder Lucas Duda and infielder Justin Turner have both made little progress in their rehab from injuries, according to Collins, and neither is due back soon. Duda has been on the DL since June 22 with a strained left intercostal muscle; Turner since June 17 with an identical injury.
