About 40 minutes from the very first pitch of their sequence opener in Washington, DC on Tuesday, the New York Mets not only released their lineup for the evening but delivered injuries updates on three of their starting placement players.
Jeff McNeil, who was scratched with back again tightness just just before Monday night’s sequence finale in Atlanta, shortstop Amed Rosario, and 2nd baseman Robinson Cano all obtained MRI examinations on Tuesday afternoon. The outcomes were being combined.
McNeil (minimal-grade intercostal pressure) and Rosario (remaining quad tightness), who exited Monday’s activity just after his second at-bat, are regarded as day-to-day.
McNeil is 11-for-his-past-25 just after beginning the time 1-for-10. Rosario has cooled considering that his scorching start off (6-for-21 to begin the 12 months, 4-for-20 given that) but is undoubtedly hunting to keep on developing on his progress. The Mets could use each players again in action ASAP.
Cano, who still left early Monday, as nicely — just after likely 2-for-2 with a few RBIs, of study course — has been positioned on the 10-working day hurt listing with a grade-two remaining adductor pressure. He’ll be qualified to return on August 14 when the Mets start out a weekend series in Philadelphia. That just cannot occur before long plenty of.
The 37-calendar year-aged is at this time hitting .412/.462/.559 (1.020 OPS ranks 15th in the National League) with a 10.3% stroll fee and a 12.8% strikeout rate, and Cano’s 187 wRC+ ranks 13th in the league.
Tuesday night’s lineup attributes Andres Gimenez at shortstop, Brian Dozier at 2nd base, and J.D. Davis at 3rd. Probably not the Tuesday lineup card Rojas had in mind heading into the 7 days, but the Mets will want to make it get the job done to remain inside arm’s get to in the NL East.
