    Michael Cuddyer replaced by John Mayberry in Mets' lineup

    Mets left fielder Michael Cuddyer isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game. Cuddyer was forced to leave the game on Sunday due to knee pain. He's been battling a lingering knee problem for much of the season. Cuddyer will be replaced in the lineup by John Mayberry, who gets his 12th start of the year in left. Manager Terry Collins said he hopes Cuddyer can avoid a stint on the disabled list by taking medication, reports ESPN.com. "He got some different medication [Monday], and we're going to see how that plays out during the game," Collins said. "The one thing I told him is I didn't want to start him and then have to take him out in the third or fourth [inning]. We'll just see how he reacts as the day goes by, as he does some work and gets some swings off it. He's still pretty tender."
