Mets acting general manager Zack Scott said Monday that he believes the right oblique strain that landed Lindor on the 10-day injured list July 17 is a 3-to-5-week injury, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

If that recovery timeline is accurate, Lindor won't be ready to return to action until the Mets' Aug. 6 to 8 series in Philadelphia, in a best-case scenario. Before the Mets are able to pin down a more defined target date for Lindor's return, he'll first have to resume baseball activities. Lindor has yet to take any meaningful steps forward in his recovery since being shut down with the oblique strain just over a week ago.
