Duda complained of discomfort in his side following last night’s win over the Phillies. It sounds like he’s dealing with a potential strained oblique, which can be a pretty tricky injury, so a stint on the disabled list is a strong possibility.
Duda began the season as the starting left fielder, but he moved to first base this week with Ike Davis in the minor leagues. Davis has back-to-back two-homer games with Triple-A Las Vegas and is hitting .333 (13-for-39) with a 9/11 K/BB ratio since his demotion earlier this week, so Mets manager Terry Collins believes he “certainly has to be in the conversations” to be called up if Duda is placed on the disabled list. That would be a rapid return for someone who looked so lost when he was sent down, so general manager Sandy Alderson may have a different opinion on the matter.
