NEW YORK -- Here are the lineups for Thursday's 12:10 p.m ET rubber game between the New York Mets and San Diego Padres.

Travis d'Arnaud has rejoined the Mets but will not be activated from the DL until Friday. D'Arnaud caught consecutive nine-inning night games with Double-A Binghamton to complete a rehab assignment on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Wilmer Flores also is on the bench a day after Wednesday's drama.
