NY - A group led by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and ex-Yankee Derek Jeter has rounded up the investors to buy the Marlins.

Mets manager Terry Collins referenced the prank in his pregame news conference. "He was in quite a bit of pain on the field".

Duda posted a.238/.360/.571 slash line with four home runs in 13 games before suffering a hyperextended left elbow April 19 as he stretched for a throw and was run into by Philadelphia's Cesar Hernandez. He is scheduled for an MRI on Sunday, which could reveal ligament damage.

Mets RHP Odrisamer Despaigne was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas before the game. He also missed games Thursday and Saturday. "I've got nothing to do with it, I know that. Sandy did it, '" Collins said. "You come up here and the intenseness of what we're going through right now, I think you learn from it. You learn how to stay focused". Other reports said that was after he played golf earlier in the day. "There were rules here that weren't adhered to and we took a stance". We want to see that here. "I respect it. I thought it was the right thing to do".

The Mets will try to keep the hits coming and polish off a three-game sweep when they host Miami in the series finale on Sunday. Miami has lost nine of 11.

Stanton hit a three-run homer off Wilk in the first inning and added a solo shot in the third. Prado let another grounder hit the heel of his glove, losing the chance for an inning-ending double play as NY went on to score three runs in the eighth. Rene Rivera led off the sixth inning with a clean single against Urena, but the Mets were shut out for the first time this season. Mattingly said he'd rather sit Yelich for one game than risk losing him for a month or more.

The 29-year-old lefty was no match for the prodigious power of Stanton, whose 20 home runs at Citi Field are the most at any visiting ballpark by a player since 2011. He has yet to pitch in the big leagues this season following hip surgery. Chen is 2-1 with a 4.33 ERA in five starts this season. Adeiny Hechavarria later homered off Mets reliever Paul Sewald. "You've got to start somewhere, so today was a good start".

LHP Wei-Yin Chen (left arm fatigue) is on pace to return to the Marlins' roster and their rotation May 12, the first day he can return from the 10-day disabled list.

Unfortunately, Harvey hasn't pitched almost as well since then, putting up a 4.86 ERA in 17 starts a year ago, and a 5.14 ERA in 6 starts in 2017.
