Worth noting

• Catching prospect Kevin Plawecki will sit out the next few days after doctors diagnosed him with a mild case of vertigo.

"They just told him to rest," Mets assistant general manager John Ricco said of Plawecki, a Futures Game participant who has not played since Thursday. "It wasn't anything severe. He's going to get a few days off."

• Right-hander Jeremy Hefner pitched three innings of one-run ball Tuesday in his third rehab start for the Gulf Coast Mets. Hefner underwent Tommy John surgery in August, and hopes to pitch for the Mets this September.
