Ailing Mets put 1B Duda, INF Flores on DL; deGrom scratched

Ailing Mets put 1B Duda, INF Flores on DL; deGrom scratched

Duda did not start at first base last night due to a hyperextended elbow that now is considered serious enough for a disabled list stint. Cespedes should miss a couple of days with a hamstring injury. The left fielder walked in the fifth, was forced out in a double play and was finished.

Cespedes (.263/.377/.632) is tied with Jay Bruce for the team lead with six home runs and has 10 RBIs. He threw a scoreless inning against the Phillies and should help settle down a Mets bullpen that has been taxed in the early going.

"Obviously, when you're chasing a team, it's nice to try to make up some ground", Mets manager Terry Collins said.

Queen Elizabeth II turns 91 with day at the horse races
William replied laughing: "It's quite hard to know what to give the Queen for her 91st birthday that she hasn't already got". On September 9, 2015, she became Britain's longest-reigning monarch, passing her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria.

"We'll grind it out - we always have, we always will", Collins said following the game Thursday. He threw two ideal innings in a pair of appearances for Class A St. Lucie (Saturday) and Double-A Binghamton (Monday).

RHP Rafael Montero was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Hamstring cramps can sure be tricky, and Cespedes will most likely get a day or two off to rest it, but it has to give the Mets a sigh of relief. DeGrom didn't factor into the decision last Saturday as the Mets fell to the Miami Marlins, 5-4.

On Sept 15, 2017, it will plunge into Saturn's atmosphere, collecting and returning data as long as possible. This flyby is also the gateway to NASA Cassini spacecraft's "Grand Finale".

The Nationals may also be at less than 100 percent for at least the start of the series. DeGrom is 0-0 in three starts this season despite a 1.89 ERA. Catcher Travis d'Arnaud, who was limited to pinch-hitting duties Thursday because of a right wrist contusion, could return to the lineup. Juan Lagares has come on to replace Cespedes, taking over in center with Michael Conforto moving to left field. The latter ailment may be of particular concern to Wright, who was diagnosed with spinal stenosis in 2015.

Flores is a career.254 hitter in five seasons with the Mets.

Existing Home Sales in US Hit 10-Yr. High
How did buying patterns vary across the country? The median price in the Northeast was $260,800, which is 2.8% higher on the year. Recent gains in pending home sales, which lead existing-home sales by a few months, had signaled a rebound in existing sales.
