• Right-hander Dillon Gee, on the DL with a strained right lat since May 11, made his third rehab start on Friday, tossing six innings of one-run ball for short-season Class A Brooklyn. He allowed three hits and a walk while striking out 10.
• Collins indicated earlier this week that top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard might not see the Majors this season, and Alderson backed that assessment on Friday.
"It's conceivable [Syndergaard sees the Majors this year]," Alderson said, "but I wouldn't predict it.
"Obviously, we still love Noah. He's had a couple of injury issues, hasn't performed as consistently this year as he did last year, but that's not a major concern for us at this point."
Syndergaard has a 5.70 ERA and 1.57 WHIP with Triple-A Las Vegas this season. He has also struck out 74 and walked 23 in 72 2/3 innings.
• When it comes to who will be removed from the rotation when Gee returns, Alderson said that managing Jacob deGrom's workload will not be a factor. The team is aiming for deGrom to throw about 185 innings this season.
• Alderson said that Matt Harvey, who is rehabbing after Tommy John surgery, will not get on a mound during this homestand, which ends on July 13.
