Mets minute: Yoenis Cespedes to DL, Phillip Evans recalled

Mets' Cespedes sidelined with hip strain

Cespedes last played on Sunday in which he actually went 2-4 with a solo home run.

They didn't need him in a 12-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays, but there was a unsafe notion that the team was going to let Cespedes try and play through the injury, something he has done before with disastrous results.

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

Cespedes played through the injury for more than a week before getting an MRI on Tuesday morning, which revealed the strain.

It's not a question of firing - Carvalhal defiant on Swansea future
The Swans have picked up three points and scored only two goals over their last eight games. It's not common for a team to reach the play-offs two years in a row".

Manager Mickey Callaway said he would only use Cespedes as a pinch hitter on Tuesday if the game was on the line.

"He was improving while he was playing, and that kind of stopped", Callaway said. "So let's take a different route". In 2016, he dealt with a quad injury, and last season he was limited to 81 games with hamstring injuries. For the season, the 32-year old is hitting.255/.316/.474 with eight home runs and 28 RBI. He'll aim to return when first eligible next Thursday.

Callaway said Cespedes has done "everything we asked of him" to keep his legs healthy. "It's just wear and tear on the body through the major league season that everybody goes through". In a corresponding move, Phillip Evans was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to provide some extra depth in the outfield.
