Lowrie's left side is now doing well, but he's now dealing with a low-grade right calf strain, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie has been dealing with a variety of issues in his left leg since he suffered a knee injury back in late February. Those issues appear to be dealt with but the veteran infielder remains hurt. It's hard to put faith in any particular return date for him at this point given how rough of a time he's had all year.

Lowrie (hamstring/knee) is still "not close" to beginning a minor-league rehab assignment, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie hasn't dealt with any reported setbacks on the health front after straining his hamstring in mid-May, but the veteran infielder isn't quite making the progress the Mets had hoped he would since resuming baseball activities. The 35-year-old was initially moved to the injured list after battling a sprained left knee capsule in spring training, but the hamstring issue may be the greater concern at this juncture. For what it's worth, manager Mickey Callaway said he still expects Lowrie will play for the Mets in 2019, but projecting a timeline for his debut will be difficult until he starts picking up competitive at-bats in simulated or rehab games.

Lowrie (knee/hamstring) is working on improving his left-handed at-bats before he gets sent out on a rehab assignment, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The switch hitter continues to be in a bit of a holding pattern of baseball activities but no game action. The hamstring injury was to his left leg and he is not quite ready to generate strong, consistent contact with that front foot.

Lowrie (knee/hamstring) continues to work out at the Mets' spring training facility but isn't making much progress towards a rehab assignment, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old is taking ground balls and swinging a bat, but his overall mobility remains limited as he tries to recover from a knee sprain in one leg and a hamstring strain in the other. Lowrie has yet to play a game for the team after signing with the Mets as a free agent in the offseason.

Manager Mickey Callaway said Tuesday that Lowrie (hamstring/knee) remains "a ways away" from returning from the 60-day injured list, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Callaway's update doesn't provide any specifics regarding a potential return date for Lowrie, but the comments suggest the infielder isn't close to starting up a minor-league rehab assignment anytime soon. Lowrie resumed light baseball activities a little under two weeks ago and will need to prove he can run the bases and play defense without issue before the Mets map out a rehab assignment. It would be surprising if he made it back from the injured list before late June.

Lowrie (hamstring) is participating in baseball activities, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie suffered a left hamstring strain earlier this month while rehabbing from the sprained knee capsule, and shifted to the 60-day injured list earlier in the week. It remains unknown what specific baseball work the 35-year-old has been participating in, so there's no clear indication of when he may be ready to start playing in games again.

Lowrie (hamstring) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is simply procedural, as Lowrie is already expected to remain out until June after suffering a setback in his rehab last week. Hector Santiago, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, will take Lowrie's spot on the 40-man roster for now.

Lowrie (knee) is now dealing with a hamstring strain in addition to his sprained knee capsule, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie had appeared to be close to making his season debut at the end of last week but suffered a setback with his hamstring. He'll now rest for two weeks before being re-evaluated, meaning he's unlikely to return before early June.

Lowrie (knee) will be reassessed Saturday, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reports earlier in the week suggested that Lowrie would be ready to make his season debut Friday, but the Mets evidently changed plans. Information about his new target return date should emerge following Saturday's evaluation.

Lowrie (knee) will not be activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was originally thought that Lowrie would rejoin New York ahead of Friday's series opener against the Marlins, but the Mets apparently want the veteran infielder to get a few more minor-league games in under his belt before making his 2019 big-league debut. Lowrie has gone just 2-for-23 across six rehab games with High-A St. Lucie and Triple-A Syracuse. He'll stick with Syracuse through the weekend, and could rejoin the Mets ahead of Tuesday's series opener against the Nationals if everything goes off without a hitch.
