NEW YORK — A pair of familiar faces are rejoining the New York Mets this weekend as they fight for a berth in the NL playoffs

Right-hander Jacob deGrom is scheduled to start Sunday’s series finale against the Minnesota Twins in his first appearance since Sept. 1. First baseman Lucas Duda, who last played on May 20, will be activated from the disabled list Saturday after recovering from a stress fracture in his lower back.

deGrom, who had been bothered by right forearm soreness, will be limited to about 75 pitches. He threw a bullpen session Friday.

INDIANS: Catcher Yan Gomes has a broken right wrist, an injury that will likely end his season.

Gomes was set to be activated from the disabled list Friday and catch Corey Kluber when AL Central-leading Cleveland opened a critical three games series against the Detroit Tigers.

Gomes, however, was hit with a pitch during a rehab appearance Wednesday night for Double-A Akron.

Indians Manager Terry Francona said an MRI revealed Gomes has a non-displaced fracture. He’ll visit a specialist to determine what to do next.

It’s been a difficult season for Gomes, who batted just .165 in 71 games.

CUBS: There wasn’t much of a celebration as Chicago won the NL Central, becoming the first major league team this season to clinch a division title after St. Louis lost 6-2 in a late game at San Francisco.

The Cubs lost 5-4 to the Milwaukee Brewers earlier Thursday night, but captured their first NL Central crown since 2008 when the Giants finished off their victory over the Cardinals.

Wrigley Field was empty when Matt Adams made the final out on the West Coast, but a loud cheer went up in the neighborhood around the iconic ballpark and several people honked their car horns.

REDS: Cincinnati placed center fielder Billy Hamilton and left-handed pitcher Cody Reed on the 15-day disabled list. Both moves are retroactive to Sept. 5, leaving both players eligible to be activated on September 20.
