The bad news just keeps on coming for the Mets. 

Jeurys Familia is heading back to the IL with a Bennett lesion in his right shoulder -- the same injury that placed him on the list last time around -- the team announced before Tuesday's contest with the Braves.

Matt Kemp on joining Mets 00:01:23
New York Mets new outfielder Matt Kemp speaks from AAA Syracuse about joining the Mets and how he can help the team in the power department

Matt Kemp took a step closer to the Mets' roster on Friday, appearing in his first game for Triple-A Syracuse.

The 34-year-old veteran made his debut in the Syracuse Mets' lineup on Friday, one week after signing a minor-league deal with New York. Kemp was released by the Reds on May 4th, shortly after spending a stint on the Injured List for a broken rib.

Kemp went 1-6 with a single in the Mets' 13-4 victory over Pawtucket.

"I'm just happy to be back on the field," Kemp said before the game. "I haven't been playing ever since I broke my rib, so it's just good to get back out on the field and get my feet under me and play some baseball.

The Mets announced on Friday that RHP Seth Lugo will be activated off the IL ahead of the new series against the Diamondbacks. 

As Lugo was progressing well in his rehab, it was noted earlier this week there was a "good chance" he returned on Friday. Luckily for the Mets, that came to fruition. 

Lugo has been on the IL with right shoulder/biceps tendinitis since May 20, as he noticed some soreness during an outing on May 19.

Following the Mets' 10-2 loss to the Cardinals on Saturday, the Mets called up LHP Daniel Zamora from Triple-A Syracuse and sent down the day's starter, RHP Chris Flexen.

Zamora will work as extra bullpen help for New York. The lefty has appeared in five games with the Syracuse Mets this season, pitching to the tune of a 1.80 ERA over five innings. 

The 26-year-old had a very brief stint with the Mets in 2018, where he owned a 3.00 ERA over nine innings of work.
