RHP Shawn Kelley (right forearm) is scheduled to undergo what manager Dusty Baker called "extensive testing" early next week. Baker said Kelley, who left Friday's game after recording one out in the eighth inning when his right arm went numb and his hand swelled up after delivering a pitch to Mets CF Juan Lagares, is dealing with inflammation and nerve issues in his arm, though the testing will determine exactly where the problem is located. Kelley also battled a similar injury during the playoffs last season. Kelley, who missed two months earlier this season because of a back injury, is 3-2 with a 7.27 ERA and four saves in 33 games this year.

1B Ryan Zimmerman (general soreness) sat out his second straight game Saturday, when the Nationals beat the Mets 4-3 in 10 innings. Manager Dusty Baker said Zimmerman is still feeling the effects of a head-first slide against the Atlanta Braves earlier this week. Baker added he expected Zimmerman to also miss Sunday's series finale in hopes of having him fully rested and healthy for the playoffs. Zimmerman is batting .302 with 34 homers and 103 RBIs in 138 games this season.

RF Max Kepler was taken out of the game after two innings Saturday night because he hurt his left hip on a first-inning single by Detroit DH Alex Presley. "He's okay," manager Paul Molitor said. "I just think he kind of took an awkward fall there. We're going to check him out again in the morning. I don't think it's anything major. Just that there was some discomfort when tried to swing down there in the runway. It was enough to where I thought to be cautious, go ahead and get him out." Kepler did not bat.
Sun Sep 2403:46SS Jordy Mercer 3-3 with four RBIs and two runs scoredJordy MercerSSPiratesFree Agent
SS Jordy Mercer was 3-for-3 with four RBIs and two runs scored. That included a triple in the first that got behind St. Louis CF Dexter Fowler and was close to being an inside-the-park grand slam. "Definitely was thinking about it," Mercer said. "Didn't allow me to do that today, but it was a good day." It was Mercer's first multi-hit game since Aug. 28, when he also went 3-for-3. He is one RBI shy of his career high of 59 set last season.

RHP Zack Wheeler (stress reaction in right arm) was transferred from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list Saturday. The transaction, which made room for RHP Noah Syndergaard on the 40-man roster, was purely a procedural move by the Mets, who announced Aug. 24 that Wheeler would miss the remainder of the season. Wheeler was placed on the disabled list July 24 (retroactive to July 23). He also missed 10 days in June with a right biceps injury. Wheeler, who missed the previous two seasons recovering from Tommy John surgery, finished 3-7 with a 5.21 ERA in 17 starts this season.

He is batting .251 with 13 homers and 30 RBIs in 74 games this season.
