Mets slugger Cespedes limps off with hamstring cramp

Lucas Duda

D'Arnaud grounded out in the ninth. Even though he has blasted two home runs, one double, six runs batted in, eight runs scored and a.320/.387/.600 slash line, the outfielder has only started on six of his 14 appearances in 2017, including Friday's game.

Cespedes, who said it felt like a "shock" in his hamstring, was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Friday, though both he and Collins are hopeful he will miss only a couple of days.

Flores is still in the hospital trying to recover from his infection.

Cabrera tweaked his hamstring a few days ago and the Mets chose to let him have a day instead of exacerbating the issue.

Gilmartin and infielder T.J. Rivera were recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas. 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.


"We'll grind it out - we always have, we always will", Collins said following the game Thursday. DeGrom didn't factor into the decision last Saturday as the Mets fell to the Miami Marlins, 5-4.

Duda is hitting.238 with four homers and seven RBIs. But, he surrendered five runs, three of which were earned. DeGrom is 0-0 in three starts this season despite a 1.89 ERA.

The Nationals may also be at less than 100 percent for at least the start of the series. Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera was out of the lineup, too, with a hamstring problem and catcher Travis d'Arnaud was sidelined with a bruised right wrist.

The Mets also sent third baseman David Wright to the 60-day disabled list, a procedural move that was needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster upon Familia's return. It is still early in the season, but the Mets can not afford to fall into an early hole.
