Another one for Jed Lowrie.
The Mets infielder suffered another injury during his most recent rehab efforts. New York general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said on Friday that Lowrie recently suffered a calf muscle strain, describing it as a minor setback.
"A low grade calf strain," Van Wagenen called the injury.
The injury is on his right side, the opposite of Lowrie's other ones. Both of his previous knee and hamstring injuries were to his left as Van Wagenen said in June that it's his "left side causing him problems."
Van Wagenen also indicated that the injury was a recent one, saying Lowrie's been dealing with it the "last few days."
Lowrie, now 35, signed a two-year deal with the Mets in January worth $20 million. Last season with the Oakland Athletics, Lowrie earned his first All-Star appearance, with a .267 bating average and career-high 23 home runs while appearing in 157 games for the Athletics.
Lowrie has yet to appear in game for the Mets since signing.
Despite that, Van Wagenen said he is optimistic he will play this season.
"Hopefully he will progress within the time frame to be able to play the second half," Van Wagenen said.
