Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that Ruben Tejada will be given multiple starts at third base.
Eric Campbell has really struggled at the hot corner, so the Mets will give Tejada a long look at the position. With David Wright (back) looking like he'll be sidelined for a while long, Tejada could settle into the position for a while if he plays well.
Lucas Duda is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday due to a tight hamstring.
Duda tweaked the hamstring on a play at second base Saturday. It doesn't sound like more than a day-to-day concern, but the Mets will be careful.
Dillon Gee (groin) will make one more rehab start.
The Mets had been expected to add Gee to the mix this week as part of a six-man rotation, but they'll wait until the first week of June to make the move. Gee has put up a 3.86 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over five starts this season.
Pedro Alvarez is absent from the Pirates' lineup Sunday.
He's on the bench in favor of Sean Rodriguez versus lefty Jon Niese. Alvarez has just one hit in 17 at-bats against left-handers this season.
Gregory Polanco is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.
He's sitting in favor of Jose Tabata with a lefty (Jon Niese) on the mound. Polanco is batting just .143/.182/.143 versus southpaws this season.
Neil Walker is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.
He's just getting a breather. Josh Harrison is at second base Sunday, with Jung Ho Kang covering third.
Johnny Giavotella is not in the Angels' lineup Sunday.
Giavotella is in the midst of a 3-for-31 slump at the plate. Taylor Featherston is handling second base.
Mike Zunino is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.
He's just getting some rest. Welington Castillo is behind the dish Sunday in Zunino's place.
