Sunday's Mets-Dodgers lineups

David Wright is out for a second straight game as he allows anti-inflammatory medication to kick in for his neck.

Terry Collins expects that newly acquired first baseman James Loney will be activated Tuesday, when the Mets face their next right-handed starting pitcher (Mat Latos). Loney was acquired from the Padres on Saturday for cash.

Wilmer Flores is active and in the lineup on Sunday night. Terry Collins said he has not yet told the demoted player about his fate, so the Mets are temporarily withholding that information.

David Wright is not available on Sunday and it sounds like Monday because of his neck issue. He remains active though. Wright took an oral anti-inflammatory medication for his neck issue. That medication needs 48 hours to take effect and Wright must be idle during that time, according to Terry Collins.

Noah Syndergaard may be used out of the bullpen for an inning on Tuesday. He will make his next start on turn Friday in Miami.

Five reasons the Mets-Dodgers 'feud' is over

While fans packing Citi Field for ESPN Sunday Night Baseball undoubtedly will give Chase Utley an earful, it's extremely likely the episode is history.

Despite Michael Pineda's recent struggles -- he got bombed again on Saturday by the Rays and his 6.92 ERA is the worst among MLB starters -- Joe Girardi said the possibility of removing him from the rotation hasn't been discussed. "We still believe in Michael," Girardi said. "We've seen Michael have success." As of now, Girardi said, the Yankees will remain on rotation, meaning Pineda will start Thursday against the Tigers in Detroit in a makeup of a game rained out in April.
