The Mets lost to the Yankees, 5-1, on Friday before a Citi Field-record crowd of 42,020.
Saturday's news reports:
• A judge agreed to move Irving Picard's lawsuit from bankruptcy court to federal court for the Southern District of New York, the Daily News reported. The move was requested by Fred Wilpon and family's attorneys.
• Reliever Taylor Buchholz, originally diagnosed with shoulder weakness, will remain on the DL for the foreseeable future with depression and anxiety issues. Read more in the Times, Post and Star-Ledger.
• Ike Davis will attempt to run next week. If his ankle, which has cartilage damage, has not improved, Davis likely needs season-ending surgery. Johan Santana, meanwhile, threw off a mound Wednesday in Port St. Lucie. One more session like that and the clock starts on a spring-training-like program, Sandy Alderson said. David Wright could be in rehab games in a week and return right after the All-Star break. Read more in the Post and Newsday.
• Terry Collins visited Jon Niese in the first inning and told him not to throw so many stinkin' fastballs. Niese incorporated his curveball more in ensuing innings and tossed five more frames, all scoreless, after a three-run first. He said he had no issue with the rapid heartbeat that affected his previous start at Texas. Read more in the Post and Record.
