• Outfielder Juan Lagares is scheduled to play in a simulated game Thursday in Florida. Lagares, who is recovering from a strained right hamstring, had not been in a competitive environment since injuring his leg June 1 in Philadelphia. He has been rehabbing at the team's Spring Training complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
• Left-handed reliever Josh Edgin has retired the first batter he has faced in all 16 of his appearances this season. That is the longest streak by a Mets reliever since Jon Rauch retired 28 consecutive first batters from July 3 through Sept. 9, 2012.
