The Mets won, which is good. But they lost two key players in doing so. One for a short time, one assumes, the other for longer.
Juan Lagares left last night’s game with a pulled right hamstring after reaching on a fielder’s choice in the seventh inning. Lagares, one assumes, will head to the disabled list. A big blow, this, as Lagares has been hitting well and his defense is fantastic.
Less serious was Curtis Granderson‘s mishap. He crashed into the right field while during the first inning, and eventually left the game. His x-rays came back negative, but he still may miss some time.
All of which will make things tough this week as the Mets don’t get Chris Young back from the DL until Friday. So is a Bobby Abreu callup in their future? God, I hope so.
