Carrasco received a platelet-rich plasma injection in his strained right hamstring in the past few days, which explains why his throwing program has been paused, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The Mets said that Carrasco's pause wasn't due to a setback, though the fact that he needed additional treatment for an issue that he's been dealing with since mid-March contradicts that notion. Even before the injection, he was tracking toward a return in late June or early July, so the pause probably pushes him toward a mid-July return if all goes well.
