Mets Places Yoenis Cespedes On 10-Day Disabled List

Mets' Cespedes sidelined with hip strain

The Mets had him undergo the MRI as a precaution.

With Cespedes out, Brandon Nimmo and Juan Lagares are likely to receive more playing time.

The Mets placed Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a strained right hip flexor, retroactive to Monday.

Sandy Alderson commented on Cespedes injury yesterday and said that despite previous reports to the contrary, the left-fielder had been dealing with a hip strain and not a quad injury. Manager Mickey Callaway said NY hoped Cespedes could heal while playing, but the problem persisted. "We did get his feedback, and he also felt since he wasn't continuing to improve in the last couple days, this makes a lot of sense".

Cespedes will be eligible to return on May 24 but in the meantime, the team has recalled Phillip Evans from triple-A Las Vegas. He could have continued to gut it out, continue to play. "He was doing a great job". In his first appearance since April 4, Evans went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts.
