New York Mets all-star, Michael Conforto, was the latest met to head to the 10-day DL with a bruised left hand after getting hit with a pitch there. On Thursday, Conforto joined Tim Tebow in the St. Lucie Mets lineup and went 3-for-4 in his first rehab game. His return is scheduled for Saturday allowing him to also play in his first all-star game.
Robert Gsellman landed on the 10-day DL after straining his left hamstring trying to run out a ground ball. Gsellman has been resting the injury and looks to return during their weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Juan Lagares underwent surgery for a fractured left thumb about two weeks ago and the Mets are still waiting to release a timetable for the center fielder’s return to the team.
Neil Walker (partial tear, left hamstring) has progressed to taking ground balls at second base on Wednesday. Walker is showing good signs in his rehab but is still a few weeks away from return to the Mets.
Matt Harvey (stress injury, right scapula) is still resting and rehabbing his injury but the Mets do not expect him to be back in their rotation any time soon. The Mets will continue to be cautious with their injury prone starter.
Josh Smoker (loose bodies in left elbow) also resting and rehabbing his injury but the Mets do not expect him back any time in the near future.
Tommy Milone (sprained left knee) was placed on the 60-day DL last week partly because the Mets have no use for him and it opened up a 40-man roster spot for Chase Bradford.
Jeurys Familia (arterial clot in left shoulder) has been doing stretching and conditioning exercises but the Mets have not release word if Familia has started a throwing program. Familia visited a doctor two weeks ago to get cleared to start the program but as of now it seems that he has not started yet.
Noah Syndergaard (torn right lat) is about another week from resuming throwing after he said on June 9 he is waiting another month to begin throwing. This gives Thor early August as the return date instead of late July.
David Wright (cervical disc herniation) is still 2-4 weeks away from resuming any type of baseball activity. Wright has face many setbacks in his rehab process and this one all but guarantees he will not play a game in 2017.
