The Mets are dealing with some injuries to key players.
Here's the rundown...
Amed Rosario (left kne/leg):
Rosario, who is dealing with a groin issue, said Wednesday that he expects to return to the lineup later this week.
The 22-year-old Rosario, who hasn't played since this past Saturday due to what was initially irritation in his left knee, said the knee feels better but that compensating for it might have led to the minor groin issue.
Anthony Swarzak (strained left calf):
Swarzak threw a bullpen session on Wednesday as he continues his throwing progression.
He left last Tuesday's game against the Astros in the top of the third inning due to the injury, which he suffered while running to cover first base.
Dominic Smith (strained right quad):
Smith continued to hit on Tuesday, facing Jacob deGrom during his simulated game. He has been hitting and doing drills since last week.
Michael Conforto (recovery from shoulder surgery):
Conforto took batting practice Tuesday for the first time since his surgery. He has been working his way back, with an expected return date of roughly May 1.
"There's the May 1st date, and that kind of gives me an idea," he said last month. "As a competitor, it's tough for me not to look at that date and want to get out there before that."
