On Thursday night the New York Mets dropped a key game against the Washington Nationals 8-3 to drop them 9.5 games out of first place but that was far from the only thing bad news they got on the day.
Let’s delve into all of the injury updates that we got from GM Sandy Alderson before the game and, of course, another injury during the game.
Michael Conforto was out of the Mets starting lineup for the fourth night on Thursday with a stiff back. However, he has gotten one at-bat in each the last two games off the bench.
Utility man Matt Reynolds was scratched from the 51s original lineup last night and is likely headed to New York to join the Mets.
Closer Jeurys Familia was scheduled to visit the doctor on Thursday in hopes of being cleared to throw. He had surgery in May to remove an arterial clot in his throwing shoulder.
