Worth noting

‪• Righty Jeremy Hefner pitched one perfect inning Friday for the rookie-level Gulf Coast Mets. It was his first game action since undergoing Tommy John surgery on Aug. 28, 2013.

‪• Collins indicated that Bartolo Colon will start Friday against the Padres, and the manager expects Dillon Gee to start sometime during that same weekend following the All-Star break.

‪• Collins had nothing new to say about lefty starter Jon Niese, whom the Mets hope to have back in the rotation after the break.

"Tired shoulder. Doing all the treatment, just have to see him throw," said Collins.
