Juan Lagares will hit second Wednesday, followed by Lucas Duda, Travis d’Arnaud hitting clean-up and Eric Campbell batting fifth, as David Wright (neck, shoulder) and Daniel Murphy (calf) continue to rest due to injury.
“Did you look at the whole lineup?” Terry Collins asked reporters, when questioned about d’Arnaud hitting fourth (WSJ, Aug. 27). “Did I have a lot of options?”
Matthew Cerrone: Nice quote, Terry. Nicely done, but this seems to happen every August and September. All of a sudden, I look up and Triple-A Las Vegas ends up relocating to Citi Field. Every. Year. Over and over and over again… When does it end? When will there be more viable options? Will we ever get to watch a complete 25-man roster, full of big-league players for an entire season?
