Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes who sat out on Sunday due to a sore hip, is back in the lineup for Monday night's series-opener against the Cardinals at Citi Field.
Cespedes did not play Sunday after he left Saturday night's game with soreness in his left hip after an awkward slide in the outfield.
Cespedes missed 37 games earlier this season due to a strained hamstring and quad soreness.
"I'm just glad there's nothing more serious because it sure looked a lot worse than it turned out to be," Mets manager Terry Collins said before Sunday's game, according to Newsday's Marc Carig. "We're glad that it's only going to be a day, not a week or a month."
The 31-year-old outfielder is hitting .281 with nine home runs and 20 RBIs this season. He went 1-for-3 Saturday before leaving the game.
