Eric Thames left Wednesday's game against the Reds with left hamstring tightness.
Seth Lugo (elbow) has been throwing from 120 feet.
He and teammate Steven Matz (elbow) seem to be on the same throwing program. Lugo is ready for mound work but still has a ways to ho in his recovery from a partially torn UCL. He suffered the injury while representing Puerto Rico last month at the World Baseball Classic.
Jett Bandy went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI in the Brewers' 9-4 win over the Reds on Wednesday.
Bandy hit an RBI single in the Brewers' five-run first inning before adding an RBI double in the bottom of the fourth. The 27-year-old catcher has a sensational .349/.391/.698 batting line with four home runs in 13 games this season, but he'll continue to share starts behind the plate with Manny Pina, who's also off to an excellent start offensively.
Steven Matz (elbow) has thrown from up to 120 feet.
Matz was shut down for a few weeks after receiving a PRP injection, but he recently resumed throwing and is close to beginning mound work. The left-hander is working his way back from a strained flexor tendon he suffered late in spring training. He's still at least a month away from returning to the Mets' rotation.
Orlando Arcia finished 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in the Brewers' defeat of the Reds on Wednesday.
Arcia contributed an RBI double to the Brewers' five-run outburst in the bottom of the first inning before socking a two-run homer in the bottom of the third. The young shortstop got off to a slow start this season and is still batting just .229/.260/.371 in 21 games overall.
Scott Schebler homered twice Wednesday in the Reds' loss to the Brewers.
Schebler took Brewers starter Wily Peralta deep in the fourth inning before tagging Peralta again in the sixth. Both were solo shots. The 26-year-old outfielder now has seven home runs and 15 RBI through 21 games this season, though he's sporting a weak .203 batting average and .280 on-base percentage.
Brock Holt (vertigo) feels "much better" and is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment in the next few days.
Holt has been battling vertigo for the past week but his symptoms have mostly gone away. The 28-year-old has started two games in left field and one at third base this year.
Wily Peralta allowed four earned runs over five innings Wednesday in a win over the Reds.
Peralta was backed by five first-inning runs (and nine runs total) from the Milwaukee offense. He walked two and surrendered eight hits, including four solo home runs. The right-hander got off to a nice start this season, but he's been roughed up in two straight starts against divisional opponents. A road matchup against the Cardinals is next.
