His fourth-inning solo blast was the only offense the Mets could muster against Max Scherzer. He later drew a walk in the eighth inning and came around to score on a bases-clearing double from Daniel Murphy. Cuddyer was striking out at a ridiculous pace over the first couple of weeks of the season, but he has been back to normal in recent days. The 36-year-old is now batting .250 with three home runs and 12 RBI through 23 games.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Michael Cuddyer will rest one game over the weekend.

The Mets want to ensure that Cuddyer remains healthy through the grind of the MLB season, so they'll give him plenty of rest as needed throughout the year. Make sure to check lineups where daily changes are allowed, as he'll sit on Sunday if he's in there on Saturday.

Michael Cuddyer went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Friday's win over the Marlins.

Cuddyer poked an opposite-field RBI single in the sixth inning, which proved to be the difference in the ballgame. The 36-year-old has been striking out an uncharacteristically high rate, but he's batting .317/.378/.488 through 11 games. He's going to produce as long as he's healthy.

Michael Cuddyer (hand) is back in the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Ruben Tejada is starting at shortstop over Wilmer Flores.

X-rays on Michael Cuddyer's left hand came back negative.

Good news for the Mets. Cuddyer had to leave Tuesday's game after being struck by a pitch, but he only has a contusion. Consider the veteran outfielder day-to-day.
