Nido will start at catcher and bat seventh Wednesday against the Reds, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Nido will pick up his third start in four games after going 3-for-8 with a double and two runs. James McCann -- who is getting a breather Wednesday -- still sits atop the depth chart and is expected to receive the bulk of the starts behind the plate moving forward, despite Nido's recent spike in playing time.
Nido (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Nido will be eligible to return from the injured list Friday. The Mets have yet to officially announce his expected return date, but a minimum-length stay appears to be a possibility.
Nido (wrist) underwent an MRI on Wednesday that came back clean, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Nido suffered a wrist injury in the first game of Monday's doubleheader against Atlanta, but he's still dealing with some limitations despite Wednesday's encouraging update. The exact nature of his injury isn't yet clear, and whether he requires time on the injured list remains to be seen.
Nido left the first game of Monday's doubleheader against Atlanta with an apparent wrist injury, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Nido was hit in the wrist by a pitch and replaced by James McCann, who will almost certainly start behind the plate for the nightcap. The severity of Nido's injury is not yet clear.
Nido is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. With James McCann logging more reps at first base of late, Nido has enjoyed a near-everyday role behind the plate. However, catching in eight of the last 11 games, Nido's run of steady playing time looks to be over after Pete Alonso (hand) was reinstated from the injured list. With Alonso taking over as the Mets' primary first baseman, McCann will begin logging more time behind the dish.
