Cespedes (hamstring) likely hasn't progressed through his running program far enough to return to the lineup Tuesday, Justin Tasch of The New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets were hoping to get the slugger back Tuesday, but it looks like Cespedes is still at least a couple more days away from returning to action. The 31-year-old sports a .270/.373/.619 slash line on the year but has been out since April 27, and he's expected to take over from Curtis Granderson in center field when he does rejoin the lineup.

Assistant general manager John Ricco reported Tuesday that Cespedes (hamstring) could possibly return from the disabled list next Tuesday, May 23, Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cespedes's condition has been steadily improving since being placed on the disabled list in late-April. He began a five-day running program Tuesday and has been taking at-bats during extended spring training over the past few days. If he's able to advance through the week with no setbacks, the star left fielder could return to action as soon as early next week.

Cespedes (hamstring) began limited baseball activities according to general manager Sandy Alderson, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cuban slugger has been out since late April after re-injuring his hamstring running out a double, but it seems like he's making progress in his recovery from that incident. It's unclear when the Mets plan to get him back into limited game action, but the timing of that step should become clear in the next week or so as Cespedes progresses further.

Cespedes is expected to start baseball activities within the next few days and was given a timetable of roughly two weeks for his return by manager Terry Collins, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Cespedes's hamstring did well in tests, so he'll start working his way up to a rehab assignment. The Mets have three off days over the next two weeks, so he could potentially miss as few as 11 more games if he manages to make his return by May 23 against the Padres as Collins is expecting.

Cespedes (hamstring) could miss a longer period of time than initially hinted, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's a bit of guesswork on Heyman's part, but he is often tuned in to such things, especially in his native New York market. Though he's rehabbing at the Mets' Port St. Lucie camp, Cespedes told him "this one hurts" around when the injury first occurred. Per Heyman, it was a bit of a departure from how Cespedes typically responds to questions about physical issues. Cespedes' fantasy owners may be without the stud slugger for at least another few weeks, but more information should be relayed in the near future. Of course, given the negativity surrounding this team's medical staff recently, it may be a convoluted process.

Cespedes' hamstring strain is not considered serious, and the Mets are hopeful that he will be able to return when first eligible on May 8, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

General manager Sandy Alderson did not provide the grade of Cespedes' hamstring strain, but he said the ultrasound did not reveal any significant damage. While it is encouraging to hear that Cespedes may only miss 10 days, each ensuing hamstring injury further solidifies the fact that this is something that may plague him at times throughout the rest of his career. Michael Conforto figures to start almost every day in left field while Cespedes is out.

Cespedes was been placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a strained left hamstring, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The news doesn't come as a major surprise after Cespedes came up gimpy in Thursday's game and only adds another layer to an injury-plagued 2017 campaign for the 31-year-old. After just recently returning to the starting lineup, it appears the Mets' main source of offense will miss extended time, meaning Michael Conforto and Juan Lagares will be in line for a wider share of opportunities in the outfield.

Cespedes (hamstring) will get an MRI on his injured hamstring Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Terry Collins added that "there's no indication" for how long the power-hitting outfielder will be out, although Marc Carig of Newsday reports that Collins expects him to land on the disabled list. No official move has been made as of now, but the Mets will likely take things slowly now that Cespedes is out for the second time this season with the same injury.

Cespedes (hamstring) was diagnosed with a pulled left hamstring after exiting Thursday's game with the Braves, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cespedes pulled up lame on a double into the right-center field alley, and it seems he indeed aggravated the same hamstring issue that kept him out of commission for five days in the past week. It's unclear how long the stud outfielder will be out due to this injury, but it seems unlikely that the Mets would rush him back into action given how poorly that went in this scenario, meaning a DL stint is not out of the question at this point. A firmer timetable for Cespedes' return should come soon.

Cespedes exited Thursday's game against the Braves in the fourth inning due to what appears to be a leg injury, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cuban slugger hobbled into second base on a double and immediately came out of the contest. It's unclear if this is an aggravation of the hamstring injury that sidelined him earlier this week or something new, but more details should emerge once team doctors can examine him further. Consider Cespedes day-to-day until further notice.
