Mets manager Terry Collins said after Tuesday's game that Jenrry Mejia has "one hell of a blister."

Collins added that Mejia "tore it up completely" during Tuesday's start and that there is "concern" about the righty. That said, he also didn't rule out Mejia making his next start. The Mets are off Thursday, so the club could give Mejia an extra day of rest.

In his return to the big league lineup, Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Tuesday's 9-0 win against the Diamondbacks.

Recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day to provide depth with Juan Lagares (hamstring) hitting the DL, Nieuwenhuis wasted no time getting started. His two-run shot off Bronson Arroyo came as part of a six-run fourth inning that turned this one into a laugher early. With Chris Young (quad) due back later this week, Nieuwenhuis needs to keep producing to save his roster spot.
Apr 16 - 12:35 AM

Eric Young Jr. finished 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-0 blowout win over the Diamondbacks.

Young has now reached safely in 11 straight games. He provides zero power -- he's collected two doubles, one triple, and zero homers thus far -- but wreaks havoc on the basepaths when he gets on. Young is currently second in the NL with seven steals, and he's fifth in the league with 11 runs scored. Monitor his playing time closely once Chris Young returns.

Jenrry Mejia left Tuesday's start against the Diamondbacks after five scoreless innings due to a torn blister on his right middle finger.

Mejia was cruising along, allowing just two hits and two walks while striking out three. He had thrown just 77 pitches, so he surely had at least another couple innings in him before the blister issue cropped up. Mejia seems likely to be OK for his next outing since the blister has already popped, but we'll have to see what the Mets say after the game.

Mets recalled OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Nieuwenhuis will provide some depth with Juan Lagares (hamstring) on the DL. However, with Chris Young (quad) due back later this week, his stay in the majors might be short.
Apr 15 - 8:52 PM

Mets placed OF Juan Lagares on the 15-day disabled list with a pulled right hamstring.

It's not clear what exactly the MRI on Lagares' hamstring revealed, but obviously it was bad enough that a disabled list stint was needed. How long Lagares will be sidelined is up in the air. Kirk Nieuwenhuis has replaced Lagares on the Mets' roster.
Apr 15 - 8:50 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Tuesday that a roster move with Juan Lagares (hamstring) won't be made until he returns from an MRI.

He's expected to officially land on the DL soon, as the Mets are already listing Kirk Nieuwenhuis in Tuesday's lineup. Lagares was injured during Monday's game while running to first base.
Apr 15 - 7:44 PM

Curtis Granderson (ribs) could be available to pinch-hit Tuesday.

Granderson had to exit Monday's game after colliding with the outfield wall, but he's feeling much better a day later. There had been some thought that he might need a DL stint, but obviously that won't be the case.
Apr 15 - 7:15 PM

Juan Lagares (hamstring) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

The Mets have yet to make the official announcement, but Kirk Nieuwenhuis will replace him on the active roster. Curtis Granderson (forearm, rib cage, knee) also left Monday's game, but he will avoid the disabled list for now.
Apr 15 - 3:56 PM

According to Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record, the Mets have summoned outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis to Arizona.

The Mets have yet to make an official roster move, but Juan Lagares (hamstring) is expected to be placed on the disabled list. Nieuwenhuis might only be on the roster for a couple of days, as Chris Young (quad) is eligible to be activated Friday.
Apr 15 - 12:24 PM

Mets first base prospect Dominic Smith is off to a slow start for Low-A Savannah, hitting .184/.205/.184 through his first ten games.

Smith was aggressively pushed to the full-season South Atlantic League, so his struggles are somewhat expected. He has yet to record an extra base hit, but only has four strikeouts in 39 plate appearances, which helps to show his advanced strike-zone judgment and ability to make consistent contact. If Smith power develops, he could hit .300 with 20+ home runs while playing an above-average first base.
Apr 15 - 10:14 AM

Mets right-handed pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard struck out five in his third start for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Syndergaard has a 3.94 ERA in his first three starts in Triple-A and is biding his time until the Mets call him up. His 6.8K/9 is troubling, considering that 10.2K/9 was his previous full season low, but his walk rate is relatively consistent and his home run rate has decreased, so his strikeout rate should increase as he becomes more comfortable.
Apr 15 - 9:58 AM

Juan Lagares (hamstring) will likely be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Lagares pulled his right hamstring in the seventh inning of Monday's game. The Mets will wait to see how he feels Tuesday before making a roster move, but they are already planning to bring a player to Arizona just in case. Expect him to miss a couple of weeks at the very least. It's a tough break, as Lagares is off to a solid start with the bat and has been playing his usual excellent defense in center field.
Apr 15 - 8:50 AM

X-rays on Curtis Granderson (rib cage, forearm, knee) came back negative.

Granderson crashed into the right field while during the first inning of Monday's game against the Diamondbacks. He stayed in the game initially, but the Mets eventually decided to pull him out of concern about his rib cage. He's considered day-to-day, but was in quite a bit of pain after the game. Expect him to miss a couple of days at the very least.
Apr 15 - 8:37 AM

Lucas Duda went 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Monday's win against Arizona.

All four hits were singles, but his batting average won't mind. Duda is generally going to ride the pine against southpaws this year, but he'll make for a solid matchup play in daily leagues if you have the discipline for it. Tonight's scenario against Josh Collmenter and the Diamondbacks was advantageous, and he took advantage. Duda is slashing .306/.359/.556 over 36 at-bats.
