Robinson Cano (quad) appears to be getting closer to returning from the IL.
The second baseman, who was on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse, was with the Mets on Saturday in Citi Field testing his left quad in the outfield and taking batting practice prior to the game.
According to GM Brodie Van Wagenen and manager Mickey Callaway, Cano was going through his pregame routine and they would assess on Sunday whether or not he is ready to be activated off the injured list.
Meanwhile, Brandon Nimmo (neck) was also back in New York on Saturday but his news was a bit more troubling.
"Everybody's progressing except for Nim," Callaway said. "Nim had to come in and get checked out."
The Mets outfielder was scratched from his rehab assignment on Friday night with Triple-A Syracuse due to neck stiffness as he recovers from a bulging disc in his neck. He was being further evaluated by the Mets' medical staff.
Van Wagenen was unable to rule out the possibility of another MRI.
"Hard to say until we see him and go through a treatment session today," he said.
As for reliever Robert Gsellman, who experienced back tightness in Friday's game, he is fine and should be available to pitch on Saturday if needed.
Then there is Jed Lowrie (knee, hamstring), who was last believed to be a "ways away" earlier this month and it seems like nothing has changed.
"He's down in Florida, he's continuing his baseball progression, he's taking ground balls and we're hopeful he can make an impact for us in the future," Van Wagenen said.
Lowrie had been out with a sprained left knee capsule in Spring Training then a strained hamstring in May set him back.
"His left side is causing problems," Van Wagenen said. "Knee, hamstring we got to make sure that kinetic chain is working together. ... we don't want to lose any more time with him. There's a lot of energy being put toward when he's ready to put in the work again that he'll be the Jed Lowrie that we saw the last two years in Oakland."
