The Mets are considering sending to the minors to help the slumping outfielder regain his swing, according to the New York Post.
On the disabled list since May 14 because of a strained right hip flexor, the oft-injured slugger hit two doubles Saturday in his second rehab game for Double-A Binghamton but was removed early with tightness in his right quadriceps.
Same stuff he’s been battling. It’s not a total setback to day one but still not feeling the way he would like it to feel to come up here and contribute, Callaway said.
Callaway said Cespedes’ first hit Saturday was a stand-up double, but on the second one, the slugger had to run a little harder to make sure he made it to second, and that’s when he felt discomfort again.
He feels like he’s not quite ready, so we’re going to send him to Florida to kind of start that day-to-day process of getting him where he needs to be, Callaway said.
Max Muncy went 1-for-2 with two walks and a two-run homer off Sean Newcomb and is now hitting .272/.395/.616 with 12 home runs.
Seems the best-hitting team in the big leagues can win with pitching and defense, too.
Brock Holt and Jackie Bradley Jr. each delivered a sacrifice fly in the 12th inning, and the Boston Red Sox limited the Baltimore Orioles to five hits in a 2-0 victory Monday night.
Though the Red Sox lead the majors in runs and batting average, they managed only four hits through 11 scoreless innings in this one.
Sometimes we’re going to go through stuff like this, throughout the season, manager Alex Cora said. But the pitching did outstanding, we played great defense and we ended up winning.
Goldschmidt homered twice in each of the first two games against the Rockies. He was 8 of 13 with four home runs and nine RBI in the three-game sweep.
