Mets second baseman Neil Walker will sit for the second straight game, as the Mets will go with Kelly Johnson at second base for Monday's series opener with the Cardinals. Terry Collins had told Walker he would get two days off to try to get him back on track "I just need to be more consistent in my approach, " said Walker. Walker's batting average has dropped to .239 after going 4-for45 in his last 12 games.

The Cardinals had a rough trip to New York after Sunday Night Baseball. Their charter had mechanical issues so they had to call in another plane. Because of thunderstorms in St. Louis, the second plane couldn't land for quite a while to pick them up. Eventually, they boarded at around 3:15 a.m., endured wild turbulence and got to New York at 6:45 a.m. They got caught in rush-hour New York traffic, reaching their hotel after 8 a.m. Oh, and those thunderstorms are expected to reach Citi Field at about 6 p.m. ET tonight. So, there's that.

The Yankees have called up Luis Severino. A top prospect, Severino was 0-6 with a 7.46 ERA before being sent down. He'll likely be in the bullpen with the impending trade of Aroldis Chapman.

Two weeks after having minor surgery on his knee, Craig Kimbrel threw about 20 pitches off a mound, as expected. The plan is for him to repeat this exercise later in the week, and if all goes well, manager John Farrell said Red Sox can discuss the next step, probably a short minor-league rehab assignment.

Eye-opening note from Sarah Langs, of ESPN Stats & Info: Aroldis Chapman hasn't allowed a run vs. the Cardinals in almost 5 years. That's 25 straight scoreless appearances, 46 K's.

Rangers reportedly interested in Edinson Volquez, and he'd make sense as a possible fit for Dodgers, Giants, Marlins, Orioles, as well.
