McNeil is not in the lineup for Friday's game against Toronto due to left leg fatigue, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
McNeil exited Wednesday's game with the issue and still isn't ready to play following Thursday's off day. He hurt the same leg back in May, so it makes sense that the Mets would want to be cautious. Luis Guillorme starts at second base in his absence.
McNeil exited Wednesday's game against the Reds with an apparent injury, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The nature of McNeil's injury isn't yet clear, but he appeared to experience some discomfort in the top of the eighth inning and was able to walk off the field under his own power afterward. The 29-year-old went 1-for-4 with a run and a walk prior to his departure, and whether he'll be able to return for Friday's series opener against the Blue Jays remains to be seen.
McNeil went 2-for-6 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 15-11 extra-innings win over the Reds.
He launched a solo shot off Vladimir Gutierrez in the first inning, going back-to-back with Pete Alonso to give the Mets an early 3-0 lead in the wild affair. McNeil has hit safely in eight straight games and is slashing .280/.359/.329 over 92 plate appearances since returning from the IL in late June, but Monday's homer was his first in that time and only his fourth of the season. His 2019 power output is increasingly looking like a product of that year's rabbit ball.
McNeil is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
The infielder tallied a single and a run in four at-bats Friday, lowering his average to .304 in 23 July at-bats. McNeil has failed to recorded an extra-base hit this month, though, and he has driven home just a pair of runs. He'll likely return to the lineup for the nightcap after Jose Peraza plays second base in Game 1.
McNeil is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus Milwaukee.
McNeil won the game for the Mets in Game 1 with a two-run single in the bottom of the eighth inning, and he'll head to the bench for Game 2. The 29-year-old went 2-for-4 with two RBI for the game. Jose Peraza will cover the keystone in his place during the nightcap.
McNeil isn't starting the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
McNeil went 2-for-3 with two runs, a walk and a strikeout in Game 1 on Sunday, and he'll take a seat in the nightcap with left-hander Nestor Cortes starting for the Yankees. Jose Peraza will start at second base and bat ninth.
McNeil is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Atlanta.
The lefty-hitting McNeil will take a seat with southpaw Max Fried toeing the rubber for Atlanta. Jose Peraza will fill in at the keystone for McNeil, who has gone 7-for-32 with no extra-base hits in his 10 games since returning from the 10-day injured list June 21.
McNeil isn't starting Saturday's game against the Phillies, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
McNeil started both games of Friday's twin bill and went 0-for-7 with three strikeouts. He'll get a breather Saturday while Luis Guillorme starts at third base and Jose Peraza starts at the keystone.
McNeil went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in Wednesday's 7-3 win over Atlanta.
Hitting leadoff in his third start since returning from the IL, McNeil laced three singles to effectively set the table for the Mets. The career .312 hitter figures to remain in a key spot in the batting order until Brandon Nimmo (finger) is also healthy again.
Manager Luis Rojas said that McNeil (hamstring) was activated from the injured list Monday, as expected, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
McNeil wound up missing over a month with a hamstring strain. He'd been having a down season prior to the injury, hitting just .242/.336/.374 in 32 games, though he'd been starting to turn things around right before he got hurt, posting an .850 OPS over his last 11 games. He should be an everyday player going forward, though he won't be asked to start two games in one day immediately upon his return. He'll be on the bench for the first half of Monday's doubleheader against Atlanta, but he should be in the lineup for the nightcap.
The Mets plan to reinstate McNeil (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list Monday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Although McNeil won't be available for the team's weekend series against the Nationals, he's expected to start one of the two games in Monday's doubleheader against Atlanta. The 29-year-old has been on the injured list since May 17 due to a left hamstring strain, but he's hit .353 with a home run and two doubles across five rehab games with Triple-A Syracuse.
McNeil (hamstring) is expected to join the team either Sunday or Monday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
McNeil has been on a rehab assignment since Sunday and continues to progress towards a return. It's possible he is activated for the team's final matchup in a three-game set with the Nationals this weekend. His month-long absence could also end when the team opens up a three-game set against Atlanta on Monday.
McNeil (hamstring) went 0-for-2 while playing five innings at second base Sunday in the first game of his rehab assignment with High-A Brooklyn.
Since he's been sidelined for nearly a month with a strained left hamstring, McNeil is expected to remain on his rehab assignment for about a week before the Mets bring him back from the injured list. Once he returns, McNeil will likely settle into an everyday role at either third or second base, leaving fewer starts available for the likes of Jonathan Villar, Jose Peraza and Luis Guillorme.
McNeil (hamstring) is expected to return from the injured list next weekend, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
McNeil has been out for nearly a month with a hamstring strain. He's expected to begin a rehab assignment soon but will need at least a handful of games before he's ready for big-league at-bats given the length of his absence.
McNeil (hamstring) may start his rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse as soon as Friday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
Once healthy, the versatile McNeil will be an invaluable addition to the Mets' injury-depleted roster, even if he underperformed (by his standards) with a .242 average before suffering the hamstring strain in May.
McNeil (hamstring) could be a week or two away from beginning a rehab assignment, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
McNeil was initially expected to be sidelined until late June due to a significant hamstring strain that he sustained in mid-May, but he's trending in the right direction. The 29-year-old will likely require multiple rehab games following his lengthy absence, so it's not yet clear when he could return to the major-league club.
McNeil's hamstring strain is a significant one and is expected to keep him out until late June, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
The Mets have managed to limp to first place in a rather mediocre NL East despite a significant injury crisis, but that crisis won't be letting up any time soon, as both McNeil and Michael Conforto are expected to miss another month with their hamstring strains. Jose Peraza has been the primary second baseman in McNeil's absence and should remain in the role for now, though his .610 OPS could send the Mets searching for alternatives.
McNeil (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday.
McNeil exited Sunday's loss to the Rays with left hamstring tightness, but he's now been diagnosed with a strain after he underwent an MRI. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return, but Johneshwy Fargas' contract was selected and Khalil Lee was recalled as part of the transaction.
The Mets plan to place McNeil on the 10-day injured list Monday with a left hamstring strain, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
McNeil left Sunday's game against the Rays with what was originally called left hamstring tightness, but an MRI revealed an injury serious enough to sideline him for at least 10 days. Exactly how much time he'll miss remains unclear. The Mets are rather beat up at the moment and are also without infielders J.D. Davis (hand) and Luis Guillorme (oblique). Jonathan Villar has already moved into a starting role at third base, so Jose Peraza should fill in for McNeil at second, something he was already doing late last week while McNeil battled leg and back cramps.
McNeil (hamstring) will undergo an MRI to determine the extent of his injury, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
McNeil was initially diagnosed with left hamstring tightness after he left Sunday's game against the Rays. He should be considered day-to-day until the results of his MRI are known.
