James Loney is set to be activated Tuesday by the Mets. He told reporters on Monday at Citi Field: "To come to this team, you can just tell the energy here is great, the vibe. And to be defending NL champs is big. I've always felt like you want to win and want to be in the right situation. And I feel this is the right situation." Loney is expected to platoon at first base, facing right-handed pitching. Lucas Duda may miss two months with a stress fracture in his lower back.

I let my emotions get the best of me." Harvey made the comment after tossing seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 win against the White Sox at Citi Field.
