Mets' Jeff McNeil: Three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Monday's 16-4 loss to the Nationals.

Little went right for the Mets in this one, but McNeil at least had a productive night. After seeing most of his action at third base to begin the season, the 28-year-old has started four straight games in left field while swapping places defensively with J.D. Davis, perhaps in an effort to avoid the back issues that cost McNeil three games earlier this month. Wherever he plays, he just keeps hitting -- McNeil is slashing .327/.397/.408 on the year, although he's still looking for his first homer.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (back) will bat second and play left field Friday against the Marlins.

McNeil was scratched Monday with lower-back tightness and later diagnosed with an intercostal strain. He's good to go now after a three-game absence and will look to build upon a strong start to the season that saw him hit .343 through his first 10 games.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Sitting out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (back) isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals.

McNeil received more clarity on his back issue Tuesday when an MRI revealed a low-grade right intercostal strain, but he'll remain out Wednesday. The 28-year-old has been sidelined since Monday but is still considered day-to-day. J.D. Davis will start at third base in McNeil's place, while Billy Hamilton will make his Mets debut in center field, batting ninth.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Day-to-day with intercostal strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (back) was diagnosed with a low-grade right intercostal strain Tuesday and is considered day-to-day, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

The 28-year-old was scratched from Monday's lineup with lower-back tightness, and he'll avoid the injured list for now after undergoing an MRI on Tuesday. McNeil and Amed Rosario (quadriceps) are out of the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals, while Robinson Cano (groin) was placed on the injured list.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Undergoes MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (back) underwent an MRI on Tuesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

McNeil was a late scratch Monday due to lower-back tightness. How much more time he's set to miss depends on the results of the MRI.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Out with lower-back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil was scratched from Monday's lineup after experiencing lower-back tightness during his pregame batting cage routine, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

It sounds like this could be just a day-to-day situation for McNeil, but back injuries are always tricky to predict. Luis Guillorme and Andres Gimenez could pick up extra starts at third base if McNeil misses more than just Monday's game.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Last-minute scratch Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil was a last-minute scratch from Monday's lineup against the Braves, Steve Gelbs of SNY TV reports.

J.D. Davis will start at designated hitter with Dominic Smith starting in left field. There has been no reason given for McNeil's removal from the lineup.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Sits for first time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil will hit the bench for the first time this season Friday against Atlanta, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

McNeil started each of the Mets' first seven games, hitting .308 while driving in five runs. Andres Gimenez will start at the hot corner in his absence. McNeil's absence comes against a lefty (Sean Newcomb), but don't expect him to fall into a platoon role any time soon, as he's already started five times against southpaws so far this season.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil went 2-for-4 with two RBI against the Red Sox on Thursday.

McNeil provided a bases-loaded single in the bottom of the third inning, accounting for the entirety of the Mets' offense in the contest. He's opened the season by reaching base 10 times in his first 31 plate appearances, with just two strikeouts to this point.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Cleared to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (illness) will start at third base and bat leadoff in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

McNeil missed the past couple days of action while battling flu-like symptoms, but the Mets were apparently satisfied with his health when he reported to the ballpark Sunday. The 27-year-old saw action at several different spots in 2019, but he's expected to find a permanent home at third base this season for the Mets.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil was sent back to his Port St. Lucie lodgings Friday after reporting flu-like symptoms, per Anthony Rieber of Newsday Sports.

McNeil did not play in Friday's game against Houston, and given that he had to be sent home from the team's facility, it seems possible that he could be out of the lineup for a few days. That said, at yet there's no reason to think the illness will put him at risk of missing Opening Day.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: May find permanent home at third
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil said Saturday that he expects to man third base on a full-time basis in 2020, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. "I think I'll be playing a lot of third. I've gone through my normal offseason routine," McNeil said, referencing the wrist surgery he required in early October. "It was a good two-month rehab, then back to a normal offseason."

The 27-year-old headed into spring training in 2019 as a utility man, but injuries soon opened up an everyday role that McNeil wouldn't relinquish. McNeil put together a .318/.384/.531 slash line across 567 plate appearances and picked up his first All-Star nod along the way, with his poor defense in either corner outfield spot seemingly representing the only blemish on his season. He was far more capable at third base, so he shouldn't lose out on any at-bats for defensive-related reasons while Jed Lowrie fills McNeil's old utility role. In addition to third base, McNeil should have eligibility at second base and in the outfield in the majority of fantasy leagues to begin 2020.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Wrist fully healed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (wrist) said Saturday that his injury is fully healed, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

McNeil underwent surgery at the beginning of October, and his rehab went according to plan. The 27-year-old figures to spend a good portion of his time at third base this season, but his defensive versatility props up his fantasy value and should give him more chances to play heading into 2020.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Undergoes surgery on wrist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (wrist) underwent surgery to repair a fractured bone in his right wrist on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The surgery was largely expected and usually carries a six-week recovery timeline, meaning McNeil should be ready for spring training. The 27-year-old finished fourth in the National League with a .318 batting average in 2019 and also recorded 23 home runs and 75 RBI over 133 games.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (wrist) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

This move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Dominic Smith (foot), who was activated from the 60-day IL on Thursday. According to Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record, McNeil will likely undergo surgery to repair his fractured right wrist Tuesday. The procedure typically carries a six-week recovery timeline, so he should be ready to go by the start of spring training.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Suffers fractured wrist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil was diagnosed with a distal ulnar fracture in his right wrist Wednesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

McNeil will see his season come to an end four games early after being hit by a pitch during the sixth inning Wednesday against the Marlins. It's unclear if surgery will be necessary, but it's a tough way to end a spectacular season for the 27-year-old. McNeil will finish 2019 with a .318/.384/.531 slash line with 38 doubles, 23 home runs and 75 RBI in 133 games.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Exits after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil was removed from Wednesday's game against the Marlins after being hit by a pitch around his right hand, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

McNeil appeared to be in significant pain and left the contest after being examined by the athletic trainer. The 27-year-old went 1-for-2 with a double and two RBI to help the Mets build a 9-0 lead before being removed.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Launches 23rd homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored Friday night against the Reds.

McNeil came just a triple shy of the cycle in this one, hitting a solo homer in the sixth inning followed by an RBI double to right field in the ninth. The 27-year-old continues to put together a stellar season at the dish, slashing .321/.390/.540 with 23 homers and 73 RBI over 128 games.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Launches 21st homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Rockies.

He took Anthony Senzatela deep in the third inning, McNeil's fifth homer in September and 21st of the season. His batting average has dropped off -- he's slashing only .263/.344/.561 through 14 games this month -- but the 27-year-old is still batting a robust .319 on the year with 21 home runs and 70 RBI.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Sitting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil is not in Thursday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

McNeil has been one of the Mets' best hitters all season and that has continued into September. He is hitting .317 with four home runs and one steal in 41 at-bats this month. Todd Frazier will start at third base and hit sixth.
