• There is still no timetable for Matt Harvey to begin throwing, Collins said on Sunday, though the team hopes Harvey will begin doing so soon. Since announcing his intention to avoid surgery on the partially-torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, Harvey has performed intensive rehab at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.
• Juan Lagares is the leading candidate to open next season as the Mets' starting center fielder, Collins said. Though Lagares has struggled at the plate, particularly in September, he has impressed with his elite defensive skill set. That includes a rookie franchise-record 15 outfield assists, including one on Sunday.
