New York Mets Injury Report

The New York Mets just can't catch a break, the injuries are piling up but they are also have several returning players.

Steven Matz (Left Elbow Irritation) is expected to come off of the DL and start on either June 10 or 11 against the Atlanta Braves. In his final rehab start he allowed five runs in the 4.1 innings he pitched, but the rough outing is not something to worry about.

Seth Lugo (Partial Tear in Right Elbow UCL) is also on track to start during the Mets four game weekend series against the Braves. In his final rehab start he pitched seven innings and allowed only one run while striking out eight.
With the return of Matz and Lugo, current starters Matt Harvey, Robert Gsellman and Tyler Pill could be in danger of losing their rotation spot or demotion.
Yoenis Cespedes (Strained Left Hamstring) earlier looked like he was returning on time but aggravated his hamstring again. He started taking batting practice on May 30, but has not been able to run which has made his return date uncertain.
Tommy Milone (Sprained Left Knee) has been out for the last two weeks with his injury and has become a forgotten man on the Mets roster. The Mets have no clear return date for Milone and with the return of two key pitchers the Mets will not have a need for him.
Jeurys Familia (Arterial Clot in Left Shoulder) will be re-examined in a little over a week and hopes to begin a throwing program. Familia was originally thought to begin throwing at the end of June, but if he is cleared he could have a chance to return to the Mets this season.
David Wright (Cervical Disc Herniation) still has not restarted his throwing program and is minimizing his chance of playing this season more and more as he sits on the sideline.
Noah Syndergaard (Torn Right Lat) has not started any baseball activity yet as all he can do is rest and let his injury heal.
