Terry Collins believes there's merit giving Jacob deGrom extra rest before his next start. "To me it looks like he's getting run down," Collins said about deGrom, who has allowed a combined 13 runs and 25 hits in 9 2/3 innings over his last two starts. Collins said he will have to convene in New York with Sandy Alderson before making any decision.

Red Sox rookie left fielder Andrew Benintendi has been placed on the 15-day disabled list after twisting his left knee awkwardly as he dove into second base. Benintendi underwent an MRI exam Thursday, and manager John Farrell told reporters that it's too soon to know whether the injury is season-ending. Benintendi, the Red Sox's 22-year-old outfield prospect, was batting .324 since getting called up earlier this month. In his absence, veteran outfielder Chris Young will get the majority of the at-bats in left field, with utilityman Brock Holt filling in against tough right-handed pitching.
