Mets' Jeff McNeil: Officially placed on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Heading to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Exits with hamstring tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (cramps) was removed from Sunday's game against the Rays with left hamstring tightness, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

The 29-year-old has been dealing with leg and back cramps throughout the week, but he's now managing a hamstring issue after going 1-for-1 as the designated hitter Sunday in Tampa Bay. McNeil was expected to start at second base Monday, but that plan is now obviously in flux given his early departure.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Rejoins lineup as designated hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (cramps) will bat leadoff as the designated hitter Sunday at Tampa Bay.

The 29-year-old hasn't played the field since Tuesday when he began experiencing cramping, but he'll serve as the designated hitter for the second time against the Rays. According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, McNeil is expected to be back starting at second base Monday in Atlanta.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Expected back Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (cramps) is expected to be back in the lineup Sunday and is available off the bench Saturday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

McNeil has dealt with cramps throughout the week and is out of the lineup Saturday after serving as the designated hitter Friday. Manager Luis Rojas offered a number of different reasons for his absence, including that the Rays are starting a lefty on Saturday. However, Rojas ultimately did state that he didn't feel McNeil was running run at full speed Friday and may have been hesitant on the basepaths. Assuming all goes well, McNeil should be back Sunday, but the team appears to be taking a cautious approach.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Absent from Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rays, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

McNeil was dealing body cramps earlier in the week which cost him Wednesday's game. After returning as the designated hitter Friday, he will be out of the lineup once again Saturday with left-hander Shane McClanahan on the mound. Jose Peraza takes over at second base and will hit ninth.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Returns as designated hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (cramps) will lead off and serve as the designated hitter for Friday's game against the Rays.

McNeil left Tuesday's game against the Orioles with what was referred to as "body cramps" and did not start Wednesday. He's ready to go following Thursday's off day, albeit only as a hitter for now.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Not in Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil (cramps) isn't starting Wednesday against the Orioles.

McNeil was removed from Tuesday's matchup with body cramps, and he'll be held out of the lineup for Wednesday's series finale. Jose Peraza will start at second base and bat seventh. The Mets don't seem to be overly concerned about McNeil, who will be available off the bench Wednesday, according to Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Avoids serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Luis Rojas said McNeil (cramps) didn't pull a muscle and feels like he "dodged a bullet" Tuesday against the Orioles Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

The cramping began in the 29-year-old's legs before spreading to his back, but it shouldn't present any long-term issues. McNeil should be considered day-to-day and may not miss much time, if any, though his status for Wednesday's series finale is in doubt with a quick turnaround for the 12:10 ET start.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Leaves with 'body cramps'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil exited Tuesday's game against the Orioles with "body cramps," Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

The 29-year-old started off 2-for-2 but pulled up while trying to stretch a single into a double during the fourth inning, and he promptly exited the contest. It's a vague initial diagnosis, so McNeil should be considered day-to-day until the team offers more specifics on the injury.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Slams homer, swipes bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in the Mets' 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

McNeil homered off Merrill Kelly in the third inning for his third of the year. He also stole his first bag of the season in the seventh frame, giving himself a combo meal Saturday. The 29-year-old is struggling at the plate, slashing .227/.327/.364 with three home runs, eight RBI and 13 runs in 101 plate appearances. He is a career .311 hitter, so his sluggish start is uncharacteristic, but he is fitting right in with the lack of offensive production in Queens.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Swats second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Red Sox.

He took Garrett Richards deep in the second inning, his second blast of the year, to give the Mets an early lead but the team's offense went cold after that. McNeil has yet to heat up at the plate and is still looking for his first multi-hit game of the season, but he's shown some flickers of life by hitting .237 (9-for-38) over his last 12 games with a homer and two doubles.

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

McNeil is not in Sunday's lineup against the Nationals.

McNeil is absent from the team's lineup for the second time in the last four games, this time with lefty Patrick Corbin on the mound. Jonathan Villar will take over at second base and hit seventh.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil isn't starting Thursday's game against the Cubs, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

McNeil has gone 3-for-15 with two doubles, three RBI and a run in the last four games. Jonathan Villar will start at second base Thursday, batting seventh.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Swats clutch homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Thursday against the Marlins.

McNeil led off the ninth inning with the Mets down 2-1, and he drove an Anthony Bass offering over the right-field wall to tie the game. It was both his first hit and first homer of the campaign, as he entered the game 0-for-8 at the dish. McNeil should be a regular in the lineup at second base throughout the season.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Idle Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

After going 0-for-7 with a walk while starting at second base in the first two games of the season-opening series in Philadelphia, McNeil will take a seat against Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. McNeil should still be a fixture in the lineup against both right- and left-handed pitching, but manager Luis Rojas may just have wanted to get an early-season look at utility man Jonathan Villar, who will cover second base Wednesday.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Slow start to spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil has only one hit, a solo home run, in 18 at-bats through his first seven Grapefruit League appearances.

He's also had some defensive issues at third base, and his 0:4 BB:K could use some work. McNeil's starting job isn't in any jeopardy, however. He should spend most of his time at second base while hitting near the top of the order after beginning his big-league career with a .319/.383/.501 slash line across three seasons.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Takes seat in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

Since the Mets have been eliminated from the postseason, manager Luis Rojas will rest a few of his everyday players in McNeil, Dominic Smith and J.D. Davis with little at stake in the regular-season finale. Assuming McNeil goes unused off the bench, he'll wrap up his third big-league season with a .311/.383/.454 slash line over 209 plate appearances.

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Back-to-back two-hit days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McNeil went 2-for-4 with a pair of base hits Tuesday in the Mets' 5-2 win over the Rays.

Since homering in four consecutive games earlier this month, McNeil's power output has tailed off, but he's continued to rack up hits atop the Mets lineup. He's already turned in 10 multi-hit performances in 20 September games, good for a .405 average on the month.
