Mets Tidbits:


  • Lucas Duda was scratched from today’s lineup with an ailing back injury. Duda had originally encountered the injury last weekend in Colorado and played through it. On Monday Duda was given an anti-inflamatory injection, and he sat out the first two games against the Nationals this week to allow his back time to heal. It’s a concerning development as Duda has now missed multiple games this week. Keep in mind he spent time on the disabled list last season from August 22-September 6th with a lower back injury as well. It will be a situation to monitor over the next couple of days to see if a move to the disabled list is in order. Eric Campbell is getting the start in Duda’s place today and batting seventh. Alejandro De Aza has been doing some work at first base in order to receive more playing time, and it could come in handy sooner rather than later. Stay posted.
  • Terry Collins indicated prior to this afternoon’s game that Wilmer Flores will begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday and likely be activated on Friday. It’s a great development as the corner infield spots have been a bit banged up lately and the Mets could really use Flores versatility right now. Flores was originally placed on the disabled list back on May 12th with a tweaked left hamstring and appears to be ready to be activated as soon as he is eligible.
