Ailing Mets put 1B Duda, INF Flores on DL; deGrom scratched

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets went on to lose the game 6-4, their fifth loss in their last six games.

Zimmerman batted only.242 with 36 homers and 157 RBIs over the previous three seasons, a stretch in which he was limited to 271 games by a variety of injuries.

New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) is not in the lineup Friday against the Washington Nationals.

Duda has a hyperextended left elbow and Flores has an infected right knee. Flores, meanwhile, is dealing with a knee infection that will keep him in the hospital throughout the weekend. Left-hander Sean Gilmartin and infielder T.J. Rivera were recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas - a day earlier, Gilmartin was sent down to the minors in a series of roster moves that included transferring third baseman David Wright to the 60-day disabled list while recovering from neck surgery. Cespedes said he felt a "shock" in his hamstring while running to second base during a double-play grounder by 1B Jay Bruce.

Premier Kathleen Wynne's Liberals are widely expected to reveal housing policy measures when Sousa issues his budget on April 27. This comes as policymakers complained that Canadian data on real estate transactions is lacking compared to other jurisdictions.

Utilityman Wilmer Flores has been diagnosed with an infection that could sideline him for two more days as medication is allowed to take effect, Terry Collins said. Catcher Travis d'Arnaud, who was limited to pinch-hitting duties Thursday because of a right wrist contusion, could return to the lineup.

The severity of the injury was originally unknown, but the Mets eventually announced that Cespedes was experiencing cramping in his left hamstring. Familia completed a 15-game suspension Thursday for an offseason domestic violence incident involving his wife. Juan Lagares has come on to replace Cespedes, taking over in center with Michael Conforto moving to left field. DeGrom is 0-0 in three starts this season despite a 1.89 ERA.

Flores is a career.254 hitter in five seasons with the Mets.
