RHP Ryan Buchter likely next in line for Padres saves if/when Fernando Rodney dealt. Good Ks. Add now.

Mets make it official, promoting Seth Lugo and demoting Sean Gilmartin. Lugo will wear No. 67. Because he has been a starting pitcher, he can give the Mets' length if required.

In non-Clayton Kershaw news, Dodgers CF Joc Pederson is not available for the second consecutive day after crashing into the wall Tuesday night. The Dodgers will decide what to do in the coming days, but it seems probable he will be headed to the 15-day disabled list. He was diagnosed with a bruised shoulder joint and said he has trouble just putting on a shirt in the morning.
