Mejia to start against Phillies on Sept. 19
NEW YORK -- Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed on Sunday that Jenrry Mejia will make his fourth career start on Sept. 19 against the Phillies. Matt Harvey, who would regularly be scheduled to make that start, will make his final start on Sept. 18 in place of Collin McHugh.

New York's six-man rotation revolves around R.A. Dickey, who still works on regular rest. As a result, the other five starters normally have five days of rest between starts, but have six when Dickey is scheduled twice during that rotation of pitchers.

Harvey -- who will start on Wednesday against Washington -- will still start on five days of rest despite being bumped up to Sept. 18, as the team has an off-day before it heads to Milwaukee next weekend.
