Worth noting

• The Mets optioned right-hander Gonzalez Germen to Las Vegas to make room for Dillon Gee, Wednesday's starter, on the 25-man roster. Germen has a 4.78 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 21 games (26 1/3 innings). His ERA his highest among Mets relievers, and only Jenrry Mejia has a higher WHIP.

• Despite carrying six outfielders and four infielders -- plus the versatile Eric Campbell -- the club has no clear plan to balance that out.

"There hasn't been any discussion about changing the roster at all," Collins said. "Right now, I'd say coming out of the [All-Star] break, we'll have the six outfielders."
