Mets GM Sandy Alderson said the team is planning to play 2B Asdrubal Cabrera on Tuesday night against the Braves in Atlanta.
Cabrera remained in New York on Monday with the team having left for Atlanta in advance of the series-opener. However, it appears he will be in the lineup after all.
Cabrera, who left Sunday night's 2-0 win against the Yankees before the fourth inning due to a tight left hamstring, was reevaluated Monday before a next step was determined.
He slipped out of the batters box in the first inning on Sunday night against the Yankees, grabbing at the back of his left leg after. He then changed his cleats and stayed in the game before eventually exiting a few innings later.
"He felt like he could've kept on going," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said after the game. "But he didn't want it to get worse."
The hope -- as it has been for most of the season while the banged-up Cabrera has played through injuries -- was that he'll avoid an eventual stint on the disabled list. And just as Callaway was confident that would be the case, Alderson confirmed Cabrera won't need more time off.
Earlier this season, Cabrera missed one game in April with a hamstring injury for a precautionary measure. He is hitting .283/.323/.498 with 11 home runs and 36 RBI this season.
