According to Mets manager Mickey Callaway, Dominic Smith’s MRI results came back “OK,” and the first baseman is listed as day-to-day.
Smith was wearing heavy ice packs on his thigh and ankle today, but it appears unlikely he will miss significant time, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.
Original report: Feb. 25, 10:18 a.m.
The Mets announced a series of injuries earlier this morning. Two of them were new ones, while the others were previously known.
Dominic Smith apparently suffered a strained right quad during yesterday’s game. He will have an MRI for that injury on Monday. Smith has had a whirlwind Spring Training so far, to say the least.
Smith is likely to miss some time with this injury and, obviously, this does not bode well for him as he is fighting for a spot on the team with Adrian Gonzalez.
It was also revealed that Tim Tebow has a sprained left ankle and is day to day. Many have wondered why Tebow has yet to appear in games and this clears that up.
Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that Michael Conforto is expecting to progress to soft toss this week and that the outfielder is eager to advance his rehab. However, the team has been implementing off days to make sure he does not go through his rehab too fast.
