• Manager Terry Collins has not yet finalized the Mets' rotation coming out of the All-Star break. He said he needed to chat with Alderson about it, while seeing how Jon Niese (strained left shoulder) feels.
• With Daniel Murphy headed to the Midsummer Classic next week, his All-Star break will be less of one. As a result, Collins is looking to give him a day off somewhere along the way, meaning Eric Campbell would start in the middle of the infield in the Major Leagues for the first time, barring a roster move.
"When you make those decisions, you got to say, 'Hey look, if he goes out and doesn't make the play that maybe Ruben [Tejada] would make and maybe that Dan would make, it just comes with the territory," Collins said. "You're not going to get a Gold Glove guy that doesn't play there very much. I know one thing I'll get from Soup [Campbell], and that is a max effort."
