Worth noting

• Ruben Tejada started at shortstop Sunday after a three-game absence. Tejada has started just four of the last 17 games as the Mets look to give Wilmer Flores increased playing time at short.

• With the U.S. Open starting Monday, the Mets are encouraging all fans to take public transportation to Citi Field. The Mets begin a six-game homestand against the Braves and Phillies on Tuesday.
