Mets Banged Up

Michael Conforto left the game in the first grabbing at his leg, and he appears IL bound.

Jeff McNeil left the game in the third with a slightly different problem than what’s been plaguing him this year.

With Marcus Stroman, who hasn’t quite returned to his dominant self since his injury issue, allowing five over 6.0 innings, of course the Mets did not win this game.

On the bright side, we got to see folk hero Patrick Mazeika hit his first career homer, which doubled as his first career hit.

The question now for the Mets is who steps up with all the players injured? The other question is how long can the Bench Mob be a driving force for keeping the Mets in first place.

We shall see.

    Need to get Nimmo and Davis back which then shifts Villar to second and Pillar to right presuming both Conforto and McNeil go on IL which they apparently need. Getting two of these four injured back within a week, plus Degrom, can help this team hold down the fort by next week as we also await Lugo.

    In the interim, it’s looking like an uncomfortable week ahead. If Mets aren’t clearing 40-man spot for Mallex Smith, it’s going to be either Fargas added to the 40 and active roster, or Khalil Lee – one or the other making their big league debut. I don’t think Lee, at 22. is ready at the plate yet, thus playing him could hurt his confidence if struggles or over matched, but he’s also the best all around outfield option we have and this could be opportunity to get his feet wet at the major league level for what could be a floor as 4th or 5th outfielder long term.

    Fargas is 26, could be fun to watch with his excellent speed and athleticism. Hits for little power, OBP and B.A, but I love watching him run with his long, quick, graceful strides. However, we’re also really short in 40-man pots to clear, and this is even before we have to add Lugo, Syndergaard and Carrasco back on it. We can afford to lose Fargas on waivers, Mallex Smith no. All of this impacts the roster moves Mets have to make today, especially if have to clear two 40-man spots today to also add infielder. It’s Mets problem, not mine, but curious what they will do.
