Waiting for Yo

The Mets’ most important player could be back soon, but let’s hope the team is still afloat by then. Sometime in the not-too-distant future, the Mets are set to get their most important position player back in the lineup. As the team has slowly worked its way through a series of disappointing games and series, Yoenis Cespedes has been on the shelf with a hamstring injury, his absence felt more and more each day. The Mets have been here before, though the last time they traversed the path of losing in incredibly frustrating fashion to the lowly San Diego Padres, the Cuban outfielder...

Yoenis Cespedes is coming back from a hamstring injury. Here’s what that recovery looks like.

Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is recovering from one as we speak. Hamstring injuries are one of the more difficult injuries to recover from due to a high injury recurrence rate. Yoenis Cespedes has been limited since late April with a hamstring strain that ultimately placed him on the disabled list. Strains, in general, are difficult to treat as treatment options are quite limited until the tissue has fully healed. Muscle tissue healing can be facilitated through manual therapy and other techniques that promote blood flow to the injured area. As the hamstrings are recovering, it is...

Michael Conforto has dealt with hamstring tightness

The hot-hitting outfielder is not expected to miss additional time. The suddenly-potent Mets offense, which had fueled the team's surge back to the .500 mark before today’s loss, was without outfielder Michael Conforto, who got the afternoon off. Terry Collins said before the game that the young outfielder has dealt with hamstring tightness. Conforto, who has brilliantly manned the leadoff spot since being installed as the Mets' everyday left fielder when Yoenis Cespedes hit the disabled list, is in the top ten in the National League in several offensive categories—average, on-base...

Yoenis Cespedes roughly two weeks from returning to Mets

The Mets finally have a timetable for their injured slugger. Yoenis Cespedes is a “few days” away from being able to resume baseball activities, according to Anthony DiComo. Terry Collins suggested that Cespedes could be roughly two weeks away from a return to the Mets. The 31-year-old outfielder has been out since April 27 with a hamstring strain suffered while legging out a double against the Braves. It was immediately evident that he was dealing with a significant injury, as Cespedes was unable to walk off the field under his own power. Collins admitted that the Mets would likely be...

And that performance has put the Mets at 14-16 on the season, which is better than you might expect when the team’s best position player—at least until Michael...

Your Friday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets’ Thursday afternoon tilt with the Braves was doubly unfortunate—not only did the Amazins fall 7-5 for their sixth consecutive defeat, but Yoenis Cespedes left the ugly contest early.

Yoenis Cespedes leaves Mets game with hamstring injury, could be “out a while”

Just when you thought the injuries could not get any worse, they got worse. Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes came up lame while legging out a double in the bottom of the fourth inning in today’s loss to the Braves, and had to get helped off the field by team trainer Ray Ramirez and manager Terry Collins. This added injury to eventual insult, as the Mets went on to lose the game to Atlanta 7-5. During Terry Collins’s post-game press conference, the manager admitted that Cespedes “could be out a while”, and that a stint on the disabled list is more likely than not for him, which would...

Final Score: Braves 7, Mets 5—Fetal position

The Mets may have lost their two best players to injury today, and they lost again too. The Mets lost yet again to the lowly Braves, their sixth-straight loss and tenth in their last 11 games. We learned before the game that Noah Syndergaard was scratched due to biceps tendinitis and is going for an MRI, but somehow things only got worse after that. Matt Harvey got the start in place of Syndergaard and looked bad. He pitched only 4.1 innings and gave up six runs and walked five. He recorded only one strikeout. The biggest blow of the game for the Mets, though, was when Yoenis Cespedes...
