The Mets put outfielder Juan Lagares on the disabled list with a sprained left thumb on June 16.
Update - 5:20 pm: Lagares will start a rehab assignment with Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.
Lagares and Jose Reyes are both expected to play for the B-Mets in Altoona on Tuesday.
Mets OF Juan Lagares missed Wednesday's game after the partially torn ligament in his thumb worsened, resulting in him being unable to close his hand.
Lagares will not immediately undergo surgery. The Mets will wait and see how the thumb responds to rest.
He had the thumb wrapped after the game and was heading to be examined by team doctors, manager Terry Collins said.
Lagares had been scheduled to lead off and play center field before being pulled from the lineup. He was replaced by Kelly Johnson, who played left field, while Yoenis Cespedes moved to center field.
Lagares initially suffered the injury while making a diving catch on June 1.
He may eventually need surgery for the injury, but is hoping to play through the pain this season.
Along with Lagares, the Mets were without Neil Walker (back) on Wednesday night. Michael Conforto (wrist) also remained out of the lineup, but was available to pinch hit.
