Terry Collins insists the Mets are focused in the moment and have not even discussed a postseason roster. Still, Collins did allow that Eric Campbell and Ty Kelly would be strong considerations to start at first base against a left-hander such as Madison Bumgarner over lefty-hitting Lucas Duda or James Loney.

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

Lucas Duda asked not to play on Saturday. Duda is having difficulty playing back-to-back days as he returns from a four-month absence without rehab games. It is nothing specific to Duda's lower back, Terry Collins said. Instead, Duda simply is experiencing general soreness from ramping up in activity.

Terry Collins said he expects Bartolo Colon will bounce back on Saturday against the Phillies after he allowed seven runs in 2 1/3 innings in Miami in an emotional game in his last start. "Monday night was a difficult scene for anyone at that game," Collins said, alluding to the Marlins' first game after Jose Fernandez's death. "We're going to write that one off."
