Mets manager Terry Collins said Ruben Tejada feels "pretty good" after leaving Wednesday's game due to being hit in the head with a pitch.

It's good news, as Tejada could have easily been more seriously injured. Team doctors said he has no concussion symptoms, so a roster move won't be made at this time. Tejada will travel home with the team and should be back in the lineup shortly.

Bartolo Colon carried a perfect game into the seventh inning Wednesday in the Mets' 3-2 win over the Mariners.

Robinson Cano ended the bid for perfection with a two-out single to shallow left field in the bottom of the seventh. Colon then gave up two runs in the eighth but wound up with his ninth victory of 2014. The 41-year-old right-hander has a 4.03 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 100/19 K/BB ratio in 134 innings this season. The Mets are known to be shopping him with the July 31 trade deadline drawing near.

Ruben Tejada left Wednesday's game against the Mariners after taking a Taijuan Walker pitch to the head.

The ball hit the front of Tejada's helmet and knocked it off. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but the Mets will surely run concussion tests.

Mets prospect 2B Dilson Herrera went 3-for-4 with a home run and triple on Tuesday for Double-A Binghamton.

The three-hit performance extended Herrera's hitting streak to 10 games, during which he's batted a robust .447/.477/.842 with nine extra-base hits and 11 RBI. In general, the 20-year-old has been on fire since reaching Double-A late last month, with an impressive .359/.421/.581 batting line, 16 extra-base hits (four home runs), 26 RBI and five stolen bases in just 29 games. On the season, Herrera is batting .323/.375/.460 with seven home runs, four triples, 26 doubles, 49 RBI and 19 steals through 96 games between the High-A and Double-A levels.

Chris Young is back in the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Young missed Tuesday's contest after exiting Monday with a left calf cramp. The veteran outfielder is hitting just .202/.288/.352 over 75 games for the Mets this season.
Jul 23 - 1:42 PM

Curtis Granderson (illness) remained out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Granderson is still under the weather. The Mets do have Chris Young back in the lineup, as he's playing right field in Grandy's place.

Jenrry Mejia pitched a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his thirteenth save of the year on Tuesday against the Mariners.

Mejia did walk one batter, but otherwise put up zeroes across the stat-line. The scoreless inning dropped his ERA to 3.80. While the ERA doesn't look particularly sparkling for a closer, Mejia has only given up one run over his last ten appearances. He also has 66 strikeouts in just over 66 innings and is 13-for-15 in save chances since assuming the closer's role.
Jul 23 - 1:54 AM

Lucas Duda went 2-for-4 and hit his 15th home run in Tuesday's tilt with the Mariners.

Duda had a nice all-around game. Not only did he smack an eighth inning home run, giving him fifty RBI even on the year, he also stole his third base of the season. You shouldn't hold your breath for another steal any time soon (please don't), but speedster abilities aside, Duda's slashing .261/.357/.485. He's really putting together a nice season.
Jul 23 - 1:46 AM

Jacob deGrom threw seven innings of one-run ball against the Mariners to pick up his fourth win on Tuesday.

Jacob deGrom tossed a third straight gem on Tuesday, striking out seven and walking just one over seven frames. It's the sixth straight start in which deGrom has not allowed more than three runs. In the process, he's dropped his ERA to 3.01. This is also the third straight start in which deGrom's gone seven innings. If he can keep lasting deep into games, he'll continue to provide nice strikeout and ERA boosts. He'll square off with the Brewers next time out.
Jul 23 - 1:32 AM

Curtis Granderson didn't start Tuesday's game against the Mariners due to an illness.

"He came in and said, 'I don't think I can go,'" Mets manager Terry Collins said of Granderson. "He's been sick since midnight. We've got him on fluids and he'll be unavailable." The Mets are hopeful that Granderson will be ready to go on Wednesday.

Newsday's Marc Carig reports that teams have started calling the Mets about Bartolo Colon.

Carig notes that the Mets are gauging the market and don’t seem inclined to eat money to make a deal work. Colon is making $9 million and will earn $11 million in 2015. The rotund right-hander holds a 4.12 ERA and 95/18 K/BB ratio over 126 2/3 innings for the Mets this season.

Mets catching prospect Kevin Plawecki has been diagnosed with a mild case of vertigo.

The Mets are hopeful that Plawecki will be alright after a few days off for Triple-A Las Vegas. Ranked by Baseball America at midseason as the No. 40 prospect in the game, Plawecki is batting .310/.368/.472 with eight homers and 54 RBI between Double- and Triple-A this season.

Scott Rice will undergo season-ending elbow surgery Wednesday in New York.

Rice will have a bone spur removed and a nerve relocated, so he's looking at a four-month rehab process. The 32-year-old southpaw was used heavily by the Mets last season, but he struggled to the tune of a 5.93 ERA over 13 2/3 innings this season prior to being demoted to Triple-A last month.
Jul 22 - 2:57 PM

Mets shortstop prospect went 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base for short season-A Brooklyn on Monday.

The 18-year old Rosario is hitting .281/.340/.344 in the NY-Penn League, but has 12 errors in 35 games at shortstop, good for a .907 fielding percentage. He lacks the upside of teammate and first-round pick Michael Conforto, but has the talent to turn into a good defensive shortstop who hits .300.
Jul 22 - 12:42 PM

Chris Young left Monday's game against the Mariners in the eighth inning due to a left calf cramp.

Young suffered the injury running to first base in the top of the eighth inning. The hope is that it's not a big deal, but the Mets should know more Tuesday.
