OF/1B Lucas Duda was recalled by the Mets prior to their 3-0 loss to the Tigers on Saturday. Duda started 65 of the Mets' first 70 games, primarily in left field, but suffered a left intercostal strain June 21 and lost his job to Eric Young, who became the Mets' everyday leadoff hitter and left fielder in Duda's absence. Mets manager Terry Collins said Duda will be used off the bench and will likely serve as the Mets' designated hitter when they play the Indians in Cleveland Sept. 6-8. Duda was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas upon completing his rehab on Aug.

RHP Greg Burke was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday. The transaction made room on the 25-man roster for Daisuke Matsuzaka, whom the Mets signed Thursday. Burke is 0-2 with a 4.91 ERA in 29 games for the Mets spread out over five separate stints. He was recalled most recently last Sunday but made just one appearance, when he gave up the tie-breaking homer in the 10th inning of the Mets' 4-1 loss to the Braves on Wednesday. Burke is 2-2 with a 4.72 ERA and four saves in 26 games at Las Vegas.

The New York Mets usually don't fall under the must-see TV category - with the lone exception of when ace Matt Harvey takes the mound. That will be the case Saturday when Harvey squares off with Max Scherzer and the visiting Detroit Tigers in the second contest of a three-game series. The pitching duel not only features a pair of fireballing right-handers who rank second in their respective leagues in strikeouts, but the prohibitive favorite for the American League Cy Young Award in Scherzer.

Easily," Hundley said. Hundley returned with a bang from a two-day stint on paternity leave and homered with the go-ahead runs as the San Diego Padres snapped a three-game skid with an 8-2 romp over the New York Mets before 36,974 fans at Petco Park on Saturday night.

SS Ruben Tejada appears no closer to returning to the Mets. Tejada, who suffered a strained right quad on May 29 and was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas upon the completion of his rehab assignment July 7, is hitting .280 for Las Vegas but entered Wednesday with just four hits in his last 34 at-bats. "I don't know when we're going to see Ruben back here," Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday afternoon. Tejada hit just .209 with 10 RBIs in 187 at-bats for the Mets and frustrated the Mets with a lack of conditioning as well as lapses on defense.
