Mets infielder Jed Lowrie is "not close" to starting a rehab assignment as he deals with various injuries on the left side of his body, manager Mickey Callaway said before Wednesday's game against the Yankees.
Lowrie, who hasn't played in a game all season long, had been dealing with various injuries on his left side. He initially sustained a sprained left knee capsule in spring training and then dealt with a hamstring issue, but is being treated from the hip down to the knee.
Callaway said he wasn't sure if Lowrie, who signed a two-year, $20 million deal with the Mets in the offseason, would miss the rest of the 2019 season given the Mets have 76 games remaining entering Wednesday night.
Callaway said Lowrie, 35, has been continuing baseball activities.
Last year, Lowrie hit .267/.353/.448 with 23 home runs and 99 RBIs in 157 games with the Oakland A's.
