Yankees double up Astros (1:01)

Dilson Herrera was in Las Vegas' original lineup on Tuesday night at Fresno and was scratched. So it would seem that if Jose Reyes requires a DL stint for an intercostal strain suffered in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Herrera is the likely call-up.

The Cardinals forced Noah Syndergaard to throw 115 pitches in Tuesday's loss and though his fastball velocity matched his season average (98 mph), his 64 percent fastball strike rate was his third-lowest of 2016. In fact, his three lowest fastball strike rates have come in his last three starts. Manager Terry Collins didn't know why Syndergaard was having pitch-count issues. "If we knew, we'd address it," he said. Collins did say Syndergaard was working with pitching coach Dan Warthen on one pitch grip, but didn't specify which pitch.

Mets manager had no problem with Curtis Granderson's decision to try for second base on Yoenis Cespedes' fly out in the ninth inning. Granderson was thrown out by Cardinals center fielder Tommy Pham and one out later, the mets had a tough one-run loss. "The guy needed to make a perfect throw and he did," Collins said. Collins also didn't take issue with third base coach Tim Teufel holding Jose Reyes at third base on Cespedes' double earlier in the game. "Tim had a better angle than anybody. It's his call."

So far ESPN Summer Forecast has projected the Nets to go 20-62 in 2016-17 while ESPN's Bradford Doolittle has them going 16-66 based on his statistical projection model. Brooklyn has been preaching patience as an organization since Sean Marks and Kenny Atkinson took over. The rebuilding Nets figure to play hard for Atkinson on a nightly basis, but defense and overall talent are certainly question marks.
