Mets SS Amed Rosario said he experienced no pain on his way around the bases Saturday afternoon when he returned to the lineup for the first time since being sidelined with knee and groin injuries earlier this month.
Rosario returned to game action on Friday, but did not run full speed during his at-bats. He returned to the field on Saturday and said he "felt great."
"No problem in the first at-bat when I ran to second," he said, per northjersey.com. I ran 100 percent and no pain."
Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Rosario looked great, noting that the 22-year-old made a "couple of athletic plays."
"He felt really good when the day was over," Callaway said.
Rosario was initially pulled from last Saturday's game against the Marlins with 'knee irritation.' He said the knee injury may have come from compensating with a minor groin issue as well.
Rosario, 22, hit .248/.271/.394 with 4 HR and 10 RBI across 165 AB during his rookie year last season.
