Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes will miss the rest of the season after an MRI on Monday comfirmed he strained his right hamstring.
Cespedes suffered the injury in Friday's game when he pulled up rounding third base on what turned out to be a dead ball. The Mets said in a statement Cespedes would be out six weeks.
GM Sandy Alderson said the injury is similar to the left hamstring strain Cespedes suffered in late April that kept him out from April 28 to June 9.
"[This season] has been very frustrating because I know how much work I put into this offseason to come in ready this year, probably more than ever before, and I have just had injury after injury," Cespedes said on Friday. "This one particularly was so frustrating because I think right before this I had felt the best I had felt all season long."
In the first year of a four-year, $110 million deal, Cespedes was limited to only 81 games, hitting .292 with 17 home runs and 42 RBIs.
