With no clear room for Daisuke Matsuzaka anyway, Terry Collins said late Saturday that he expected the right-hander to make another minor-league start before being activated from the disabled list.

One more start in the minors won't hurt and it's a good way to keep him active while the team gets a chance to watch Jacob deGrom and Rafael Montero. Based on how each of them do, the Mets will set up their rotation for the next few weeks and possibly the duration of the season.ANALYST: Howard Bender Mobile App
