Dilson Herrera (shoulder) will be examined by Reds medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek on Thursday.
Herrera has been dealing with inflammation in his right shoulder, but he was able to do some throwing on Monday. The Reds plan to hold off on any more throwing until he's checked out on Thursday. Jose Peraza projects to start at second base following the Brandon Phillips trade, so Herrera is likely Triple-A bound if healthy. Mar 1 - 11:25 AM

Dilson Herrera is dealing with some inflammation in his right shoulder.

It's keeping him from throwing, but he can still hit and will serve as the Reds' designated hitter on Saturday. Still, it's not a great situation for Herrera as he attempts to make the Opening Day roster. How long it might be before he's able to return to full-time duty isn't known at this point.

Reds acquired INF Dilson Herrera and LHP Max Wotell from the Mets for OF Jay Bruce.

The two sides reconfigured the deal after the Reds reportedly raised a concern about Brandon Nimmo's medicals. Herrera has struggled in his sporadic opportunities in the majors, but he's still just 22 years old and is batting .276/.327/.462 with 13 homers and six steals over 86 games this season with Triple-A Las Vegas. He should get a chance to prove himself relatively soon.

Mets 2B prospect Dilson Herrera matched a season-high with five RBI Wednesday in a win for Triple-A Las Vegas.

He ripped an RBI double in the third before clearing the bases with a grand slam in the eighth. The 22-year-old has flexed his power muscles this year with 11 blasts and 43 RBI in only 65 contests. He ranks second in the Pacific Coast League in runs scored (52) and is also fourth in doubles with 20. Herrera appeared in 31 games for the Mets last season and should get another shot in the bigs later this year.

Mets 2B prospect Dilson Herrera slashed four hits Thursday in a win for Triple-A Las Vegas.

He homered and drove in four runs as the 51s cruised to a 17-7 win over Albuquerque. The 22-year-old has been scorching hot over his last eight games, batting .389 over that span while lifting his season average from .276 to .295. He's also driven in 11 runs during that stretch, raising his season total to 35. Herrera appeared in 31 games at the major league level last season, batting .211 with three homers and six RBI. The Mets haven't needed him yet in 2016 but that could change at any moment. At worst, he'll arrive when rosters expand in September.

Mets 2B prospect Dilson Herrera slugged two homers Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Las Vegas.

He plated five of the team's season-high 15 runs. Herrera, who had never homered twice in a game before Tuesday, needed a double to complete the cycle. The 22-year-old has five multi-hit games in his last 10 contests. Over that span, he's raised his average from .231 to .288. Herrera made 31 appearances for the Mets last year, hitting .211 with three homers and six RBI.

Mets optioned INF Dilson Herrera to Triple-A Las Vegas.

An expected move, even after the recent knee injury to Asdrubal Cabrera. Herrera has a promising future, but he likely won't see significant time in the majors in 2016 unless there's an injury.
Tue, Mar 15, 2016 09:31:00 AM

Dilson Herrera departed Sunday's game after fouling a pitch off the inside of his left knee.

Herrera limped off the field and you'd have to think he'll be sent for X-rays. The Mets should have more on the second baseman's status later Sunday.

Dilson Herrera went 2-for-2 with a homer in the bottom of the ninth as the Mets and a Marlins split-squad played to a 4-4 tie on Friday.

The Mets might have been just fine with Herrera at second base this year, but they weren't willing to take the chance. With Neil Walker in town, Herrera will head to Triple-A, probably for the bulk of the season. His chance is likely to come in 2017.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Wednesday that prospect Dilson Herrera is "a viable alternative from within the organization" to replace Daniel Murphy at second base.

The Mets are expected to extend a qualifying offer to Murphy by Friday, but he'll almost certainly depart via free agency. Herrera has had a couple of cups of coffee in the majors already, but he could finally be ready for an extended opportunity. The 21-year-old batted .327/.382/.511 with 11 home runs, 50 RBI, and 13 stolen bases over 81 games with Triple-A Las Vegas this season. As of now, the Mets appear set to move forward with Herrera, Wilmer Flores, and Ruben Tejada in their middle infield in 2016.

Dilson Herrera went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, and a two-run home run as the Mets topped the Reds on Sunday.

Herrera smacked a two-run home run in the second inning off of Keyvius Sampson to give the Mets a 3-0 lead. With the Mets having clinched the NL East, he was making his first start since June 27. The infielder is batting .218/.320/.379 with three home runs and six RBI in 100 plate appearances.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 04:15:00 PM

Mets recalled 2B Dilson Herrera from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Herrera had a couple of stints with the Mets earlier this season and he's back now that the Triple-A season is over. The 21-year-old is a very promising player for the long-term, but he's likely to be a bench player down the stretch.
Tue, Sep 8, 2015 02:35:00 PM

Mets optioned INF Dilson Herrera to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Wilmer Flores is set to take over as the starting second baseman, so Herrera is better off getting regular playing time in the minors. The 21-year-old is batting just .195/.290/.317 over 93 plate appearances at the major league level, but he still has a lot of long-term promise.
Tue, Jun 30, 2015 02:25:00 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that the way Dilson Herrera has been playing, Daniel Murphy will be a third baseman when he returns from the disabled list.

Herrera went 1-for-3 and belted his second home run of the season in Sunday's victory over the Braves. The 21-year-old has certainly held his own at the plate thus far, slashing .255/.352/.426 with four RBI and a stolen base.
Sun, Jun 14, 2015 05:00:00 PM

Mets activated INF Dilson Herrera from the 15-day disabled list.

Herrera missed close to four weeks because of a fracture in his right middle finger. He's going to play regularly with all the injuries on the Mets' infield depth chart, and the 21-year-old warrants some attention in deeper mixed fantasy leagues. A top-100 prospect, Herrera boasts a .302/.367/.464 career minor league batting line.
