  • Mets' Cespedes sidelined with hip strain

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

Manager Mickey Callaway said he would only use Cespedes as a pinch hitter on Tuesday if the game was on the line. "He was on board with the people who know what they're really talking about, kind of decided on". "And I think it became evident after that one off day where he was feeling the same, not a lot of improvement, and then he got the MRI and it kind of made the decision for us".

Cespedes initially suffered the injury May 6 against the Rockes. In 2016, he dealt with a quad injury, and last season he was limited to 81 games with hamstring injuries.

While Cespedes is eligible to return as soon as May 24, Callaway said "nobody can predict" when the slugger might be back in the lineup. In the last 16 games, he's slashing.360/.414/.640 with three home runs and seven RBI, though the Mets went just 4-12 in the games he played.

"He could've continued to gut it out, continued to play", Callaway said.

Despite efforts in training to prevent a similar situation this year, Cespedes' body has already betrayed him a quarter of the way through the season.

Callaway said Cespedes has done "everything we asked of him" to keep his legs healthy. For the season, the 32-year old is hitting.255/.316/.474 with eight home runs and 28 RBI.

Phillip Evans was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas and slated to start in left field against Toronto on Wednesday.
