Ynoa has been announced as the starting pitcher for Sunday's regular season finale against the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The Mets were able to clinch a Wild Card berth with Saturday's win, so they'll opt to rest Noah Syndergaard, who will start the Wild Card matchup. Ynoa has appeared in nine games for the Mets on the season, amassing a 7.90 ERA and 1.98 WHIP across 13.2 innings.
Castillo is out of Saturday's lineup against the Padres, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports.
This will be the second time in the last three games that Castillo has been excluded from the lineup. Oscar Hernandez will get the start behind the dish and hit eighth.
Rodriguez left Saturday's game against the Cardinals with leg cramps, the Pittsburgh Tribune's Rob Biertempfel reports.
He went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run before exiting as a precaution. With one game left on the schedule this year, it's possible that this will be Rodriguez's last action of 2016.
With the NHL season less than two weeks away, New Jersey, along with every other professional team, was forced to slim their roster and a number of young prospects were transferred to the minors.
