Mets slugger Cespedes limps off with hamstring cramp

Posted April 23, 2017

D'Arnaud grounded out in the ninth. The fact he was able to pinch-hit Thursday suggests d'Arnaud could return to the lineup as soon as Friday.

Duda has a hyperextended left elbow and Flores has an infected right knee. Wilmer Flores is dealing with a joint infection as well, leaving the team dangerously shorthanded as they head into a very important series. The New York Daily News reported Flores spent Wednesday night in the hospital.

As his absence remains a fact, Jay Bruce will be responsible for first base, while lefty Sean Gilmartin was recalled back up from the minors to take his place in the roster.

To make matters worse, Yoenis Cespedes exited last night's contest with a hamstring injury, which will require a MRI. He stopped less than halfway to second base and walked slowly off the field before disappearing into the clubhouse with trainer Ray Ramirez and manager Terry Collins.

The company issued a voluntary recall for 3,000 of its Model S cars in November 2015 , due to seatbelt connectivity problems. According to the Tesla executive, one supercharger station will be able to handle six to eight vehicles at once.

The team said that Cespedes will have the MRI on Friday. He threw a scoreless inning against the Phillies and should help settle down a Mets bullpen that has been taxed in the early going.

"We'll grind it out - we always have, we always will", Collins said following the game Thursday. He is 6-2 with a 2.47 ERA in 15 career games (nine starts) against the Mets. He will likely start at Las Vegas.

Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal noted the Mets are saying Cespedes has a cramp in his left hamstring. DeGrom didn't factor into the decision last Saturday as the Mets fell to the Miami Marlins, 5-4. Duda is slashing.238/.360/.571 with four home runs and seven RBI this season. But, he surrendered five runs, three of which were earned.

DeGrom doesn't have a decision in three starts this season despite a 1.89 ERA.
