The Mets promoted 2B Dilson Herrera from Triple-A Las Vegas after Thursday's loss. With Herrera up, Daniel Murphy is expected to shift to third base, while Herrera will play second, until David Wright returns from the DL, according to multiple beat writer reports.
Wright will not return until next Friday, at the earliest, as he continues to work back from a hamstring injury, Sandy Alderson explained to reporters.
Rafael Montero has been placed on the 15-day DL with swelling in his right rotator cuff, an issue that is not considered serious, according to Alderson.
The Mets are no longer interested in trading Bartolo Colon, according to reporter Andy Martino.
