Logan Morrison is not in Wednesday's lineup versus the Red Sox.
He'll take a seat against left-hander David Price. Taylor Motter will play first base while Brandon Guyer will play left field and bat fifth.
Xander Bogaerts is back in Wednesday's lineup against the Rays.
Bogaerts was given the day off Tuesday, but he's right back in there for Wednesday's game. The 23-year-old shortstop is batting .343/.395/.494 with nine homers, 50 RBI, and 10 steals over 75 games this season.
Phillies prospect outfielder Nick Williams was benched Tuesday for not hustling.
Williams was previously benched for two games earlier this month for not running hard on a pop-up. Triple-A Lehigh Valley manager Dave Brundage said the continued discipline is about "teaching him how to play the game right." It's unclear if he'll return to the lineup Wednesday. Williams, who was acquired in the Cole Hamels deal last year, is batting .285/.329/.460 with seven homers, 36 RBI, and five steals over 67 games this season in Triple-A.
Jose Reyes went 0-for-4 with a run scored Tuesday with Double-A Binghamton.
After reaching on a fielder's choice, Reyes scored from second base on a single by prospect shortstop Amed Rosario. Reyes is now 0-for-9 since signing a minor league deal with the Mets over the weekend, but he's not concerned. "My body feels perfect," said Reyes. "I just need my timing, and some more action at third base." Reyes could join the Mets as soon as this weekend against the Cubs.
Clayton Richard (blister) struck out two batters in a scoreless inning Tuesday in a minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Iowa.
It was his first appearance since being placed on the disabled list with a blister last week. It's unclear when he'll rejoin the Cubs. The southpaw has an ugly 7.30 ERA in 22 appearances this season.
DJ LeMahieu (knee) entered Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays as a defensive replacement and struck out in his lone at-bat.
LeMahieu suffered a left knee contusion Sunday and has been held out of the starting lineup for the past two games. He's hoping to return Wednesday.
Justin Smoak (knee) served as a defensive replacement in the ninth inning Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Smoak has been held out of the starting lineup since last Wednesday due to knee soreness. He appeared as a pinch hitter on Monday and played defense on Tuesday, so it sounds like he's getting close.
Gregory Polanco (leg) went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a run scored Tuesday against the Mariners in his return to action.
Polanco was held out of the starting lineup for the past three games due to left leg discomfort, but he felt well enough to DH on Tuesday. Look for him to return to the field soon.
