Worth noting

• Outfielder Curtis Granderson sat out a second consecutive game Wednesday due to illness. Granderson remains day-to-day, but said he was feeling significantly better Wednesday and is a good bet to return to the lineup for Thursday's series opener in Milwaukee.

• Outfielder Chris Young, who left Monday's game early with cramping in his left calf, returned to the starting lineup Wednesday.

• Reliever Buddy Carlyle cleared waivers Wednesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas. Carlyle, 36, posted a 1.29 ERA in five appearances for the Mets.
