Yoenis Cespedes had his hamstring examined by doctors on Friday and will likely miss at least a few games, Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday.
Cespedes exited Thursday night's game at the end of the fifth inning with what the Mets initially called a cramp.
He later said he felt a "shock" rather than a hamstring cramp, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post.
Cespedes appeared to injure himself when he was on the bases, and limped off the field.
Juan Lagares entered the game to play center field and Michael Conforto moved to left field.
Cespedes is hitting .260 with a .377 OBP and .632 SLG with six HR and 10 RBI in 16 games this season.
