Mets placed 2B Neil Walker on the 10-day disabled list with a partial tear of his left hamstring.
The injury, suffered Wednesday night against the Cubs, will keep Walker out of action for several weeks -- possibly into August. Gavin Cecchini has been called up from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding roster to move to give the Mets much-needed middle-infield depth. Jun 15 - 3:49 PM

Neil Walker (leg) is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday against the Nationals.

Walker suffered a serious-looking left leg injury after laying down a bunt in the third inning Wednesday night against the Cubs. He had an MRI scheduled for Thursday, so there should be something more official about his status shortly. A disabled list stint seems likely. T.J. Rivera is starting at second base Thursday versus Washington.

Neil Walker was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Cubs due to a left leg injury.

The Mets passed along the general injury, but offered no further specifics. Walker came up hobbled while running down the line after laying down a bunt in the third inning. He stayed on the ground for several moments before being helped up to limp into the dugout. An MRI is scheduled for Thursday. That should shine more light on what looked like a potentially serious injury on the field.

Neil Walker was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Cubs with an apparent leg injury.

Walker came up injured while running down the line after attempting to bunt for a hit in the third inning. He chugged out of the box fine, but appeared to twice tweak his left leg, after which he went down to the ground. He was helped off the field several moments later. The Mets should pass along an update as to the exact nature of this injury in the coming hours, but from first glance, this might be one which could send him to the disabled list.

Neil Walker (knee) reached base five times during Saturday's doubleheader versus the Braves in his return to action.

Neil Walker (knee) remained out of the Mets' lineup Friday.

Walker sat out Wednesday with a stiff left knee and apparently Thursday's off day wasn't enough for him to recover. T.J. Rivera is at second base in Walker's place.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: While Walker's absence does bode well for Julio Teheran, the left-handed bats on the New York side are still intriguing. Sun Trust Park has been one of the friendliest to lefties in it's debut season and Teheran has struggled mightily with LH bats at times over the last few seasons. He's allowed a .391 wOBA to LH bats so far this season with 2.36 HR/9 rate, which makes Conforto, Bruce and Duda excellent GPP targets.

Marc Carig of Newsday reports that Neil Walker is sitting on Wednesday due to minor knee stiffness.

While Mets manager Terry Collins said that Walker was just receiving a routine day off, there is apparently something more behind it. Per Carig, he received treatment in the clubhouse for a stiff knee, but is expected to be back in the lineup when the Mets take on the Braves for a three-game series starting on Friday. The team has a natural off day on Thursday.
