NEW YORK -- The Mets scratched first baseman Lucas Duda from Friday's starting lineup due to food poisining, which forced him to a local hospital for intravenous fluids, and he'll likely be unavailable for Saturday's game against the Phillies.

Duda, according to manager Terry Collins, was "very sick" and could not keep fluids in his system earlier in the day. Duda returned from the hospital and was on the bench during the Mets' 3-2, 11-inning loss to the Phillies, but he went back in the clubhouse to rest during the middle innings.

"He's pretty ill right now," Collins said.

With Duda sidelined, Josh Satin made his first start of the season against a right-handed pitcher and went 0-for-5. Twenty-one of Satin's first 29 plate appearances had come vs. lefties.
