Terry Collins expects another roster move to bring up a bullpen arm. He does not expect a move as far as an outfielder because Jay Bruce's injury is just a bruise.

Meanwhile, Yoenis Cespedes twisted his right ankle during the game. As for Jacob deGrom's recent struggles, Collins said: "At this stage of the season the first thing you look at is fatigue."

How big of a rut has Jacob deGrom fallen into? His outing Wednesday marked the first time in franchise history that a Mets pitcher allowed a dozen hits in consecutive appearances, and the first time in deGrom's career he has allowed double-digit hits in consecutive starts. DeGrom was charged with five runs on 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings against the Cardinals.

With the Marlins acquiring Jeff Francoeur, it's worth noting this about the Mets: Team officials are not expecting to make any acquisitions the remainder of this month. They did put in a claim on a reliever earlier this month, but did not win the claim. You may recall the Mets acquired Addison Reed in August 2015.

Mark Teixeira wasn't surprised the Mariners intentionally walked Gary Sanchez twice to get to him. Teixeira pointed out he is hitting .197 and that Sanchez is hitting everything a mile. "Shoot, if Babe Ruth is hitting behind him you intentionally walk him," Teixeira said. "I mean he is as hot as any player I have played with in my entire career. You just don't see guys doing what he is doing. I don't care how old he is."
