Before Thursday night's series finale between the Mets and Chicago Cubs, a pair of positive injury updates came New York's way.
In the afternoon, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reported that Mets Tomas Nido and Dominic Smith were set to resume baseball activities.
During last Friday's 2-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves, Nido suffered a concussion after a backswing from 3B Josh Donaldson, landing the Mets' catcher on the seven-day injured list.
According to DiComo, Nido has been symptom-free for "several days."
Smith, DiComo said, is free of his boot and scooter as he continues to work back from a stress reaction in his foot. He has been on the injured list since July 27 but is now cleared to resume baseball activites.
As the backup catcher behind Wilson Ramos, Nido has slashed .207/.240/.328 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 39 games.
Smith, who has primarily played LF on top of 1B, slashed .278/.352/.506 with 10 home runs and 22 RBI in 88 games before the injury.
