The Mets' DHs this weekend could be Lucas Duda, Justin Turner and John Buck.
MINNEAPOLIS -- Terry Collins said he plans to rotate the use of the designated hitter this weekend at Target Field.

Lucas Duda gets the nod in Game 1.

With the Mets facing left-hander Scott Diamond on Saturday, Collins portrayed Justin Turner as the most likely candidate to DH.

Collins said his staff has discussed potentially using John Buck as DH on Sunday to keep him in the lineup while giving him a day off from catching.
