Conforto (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday.
Conforto's placement on the injured list was expected after he sustained a right hamstring strain in Sunday's loss to the Rays. The 28-year-old underwent an MRI on Monday, but the results aren't yet known. Johneshwy Fargas' contract was selected and Khalil Lee was recalled as part of a shuffle.

New York has yet to reveal the results of the MRI that Conforto underwent after exiting Sunday's game against the Rays with right hamstring tightness, but the club apparently believes he's dealing with more than a day-to-day concern. Conforto looks poised to become the third Mets everyday player to move to the IL, joining Brandon Nimmo (finger) and J.D. Davis (hand). Reserve outfielder Albert Almora (shoulder) is also on the IL, so the Mets could need to call up an outfielder from Triple-A Syracuse to play everyday alongside Dominic Smith in left field and Kevin Pillar in center.

Conforto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Nationals.
The Mets were already down 5-0 when Conforto went yard off Joe Ross, in part because of his own shaky defense in right field.

Manager Luis Rojas initially moved Conforto down from third to sixth in the order for Sunday's series finale against the Marlins, but the outfielder didn't get a chance to hit in the contest after it was suspended due to rain.

With free agency looming next offseason, Conforto has plenty of incentive to put together a big campaign.
