Walker (hamstring) is expected to be out "about a month," Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily news reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran second baseman went down with what was eventually diagnosed as a partially torn hamstring while trying to run out an infield hit Wednesday. He has already received a platelet-rich plasma injection in his leg to promote healing, but it appears Walker is looking at a reasonably lengthy rehab process. T.J. Rivera and the recently recalled Gavin Cecchini will platoon at second base until Walker is ready to return.

Walker was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a partially torn left hamstring, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Walker's injury looked serious from the start, and Thursday's MRI results revealed what both parties had feared. He received a PRP injection and is expected to begin rehabbing immediately, which will take several weeks. Gavin Cecchini was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to take his place on the roster, while him and T.J. Rivera should be prime candidates to draw starts at second base in Walker's absence.

Walker left Wednesday's game early with a left leg injury and will undergo and MRI on Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets didn't get too specific when clarifying why Walker left the game, so we'll have to wait until Thursday's MRI results to know the severity of his injury. A trip to the disabled list seems likely at this point.

Walker was prematurely lifted from Wednesday's game against the Cubs with an apparent hamstring injury, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This isn't good news, as Walker was in obvious pain after he pulled up grabbing his left hamstring while hustling down the line to beat out a bunt. He eventually had to be helped off the field. T.J. Rivera was shifted to second base with Lucas Duda coming on as a sub to play first base. His condition should be updated following Wednesday's contest, though a trip to the disabled list seems likely.

Walker went 1-for-3 with his ninth homer and a walk against the Cubs on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

It was a garbage-time shot with the Mets hopelessly behind in the ninth inning, but hey, they all count in fantasy. Walker's been racking up hits at a steady clip, and he's gone without a strikeout in four consecutive starts. He isn't the sexiest name at second base, but he's getting the job done for his fantasy owners.

Walker (knee) is back in the starting lineup for game two of Saturday's doubleheader, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Walker came into game one in the eighth inning and wound up with one at-bat, which resulted in him getting hit by a pitch in his right knee. Thankfully, that was not the knee that caused him to miss time, and Walker appears good to go in his regular position for the second game of the doubleheader.

Walker (knee) is not in the lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

T.J. Rivera will get the start at second base. The expectation was that Walker would be available Friday after missing Wednesday's game with knee soreness, but Walker was not in the lineup nor did he appear off the bench. It's uncertain if he will be able to give it a go in the nightcap.

Walker (knee) is not in the lineup Friday against the Braves, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Walker was expected to be ready to go following Thursday's off day, but it seems like the Mets are taking the cautious approach with his recovery. There's a chance he could be available as a pinch hitter given how the team downplayed the ailment earlier in the week, but consider him day-to-day for now. T.J. Rivera will pick up a start at second base to fill in for him.

Manager Terry Collins said Walker was held out of Wednesday's lineup due to some knee soreness, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

While it was originally thought to be a routine day off for Walker, it appears he was actually getting the day to rest his knee. The injury doesn't appear to be anything overly serious, as Collins also said he expects Walker to be available after Thursday's day off.

Walker is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Walker has two home runs in his past three games, but he'll head to the bench for his first day off in the past seven games. Wilmer Flores will move over to the keystone to fill in for him while Jose Reyes enters the lineup to round out the infield.
