Megill (shoulder) on shelf for at least 4 weeks

Megill (shoulder) on shelf for at least 4 weeks

June 17th, 2022

Keep track of the Mets’ recent transactions and injury updates throughout the season.

June 17: RHP Tylor Megill (right shoulder strain) placed on 15-day IL; RHP Adonis Medina recalled from Triple-A

Megill was placed on the 15-day injured list on Friday after he was diagnosed with a right shoulder strain following his fourth-inning exit in Thursday’s series finale.

The Mets recalled righty Adonis Medina from Triple-A Syracuse to bolster New York’s pitching staff.

June 17: RHP Jake Reed optioned to Triple-A; RHP Tommy Hunter recalled

Reed was optioned to Syracuse following a poor showing vs. the Brewers on Thursday. With the callup, Hunter is reunited with manager Buck Showalter. They worked together when both were with the Orioles from 2011-15. — Bill Ladson

June 17: 2B Eduardo Escobar still not in lineup

For a second day in a row, Escobar was not in the Mets’ starting lineup. Manager Buck Showalter wouldn’t say what Escobar was dealing with, though he did say that Escobar had a full workup in the hospital. Escobar was available for Friday’s game against the Marlins.

“After he got through all the testing, he is trying to catch up on some rest,” Showalter said. “He will be available and I expect him back in the lineup tomorrow.” Bill Ladson

RHP Tylor Megill (right shoulder strain)

Expected return:
Sometime in August

Megill underwent an MRI Friday morning and was diagnosed with a strain. The immediate plan is for Megill to be shut down from throwing and re-evaluated in four weeks. — Bill Ladson (Last updated: June 17)

C James McCann (broken hamate bone in left wrist)

Expected return:
Late June

McCann began a Minor League rehab assignment on June 16 for Double-A Binghamton less than a month after undergoing May 17 surgery to repair his wrist. If all continues to go well, McCann should be able to hit the front end of his six-to-eight-week timeline and return to the Mets by the end of the month. Until then, Tomás Nido and Patrick Mazeika will continue to split time behind the plate, with Nido receiving the bulk of the work. – Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 16)

RHP Max Scherzer (strained left oblique)

Expected return:
Late June or early July

Scherzer threw a 50-pitch, three-inning simulated game June 16 at Citi Field, with an eye toward beginning a Minor League rehab assignment on June 21. Barring a setback, he should be back right around six weeks after feeling a “zing” in his left side during a May 18 start against the Cardinals. That discomfort turned out to be a moderate to high-grade internal oblique strain, which typically requires a six-to-eight-week recovery process. While rehabbing in Florida, Scherzer was bit on his right hand by one of his dogs, but the resulting injury was mild and did not affect his timeline. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 16)

RHP Colin Holderman (right shoulder impingement)

Expected return: July

Four days after uncharacteristically walking three batters in a June 7 game against the Padres, Holderman landed on the IL. He underwent an MRI on June 14 that confirmed the impingement, and a team spokesman said that “we consider him week-to-week at this time.” The Mets will be careful with Holderman, a rookie whose recent velocity jump gives him a bright future in the bullpen. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 14)

OF Travis Jankowski (fractured left fourth metacarpal)

Expected return: Early July

Jankowski is ahead of schedule in his rehab after fracturing a bone in his left hand on May 25. Originally scheduled to miss six-to-eight weeks, the backup outfielder now hopes to return as soon as July 1, though he recognizes it could take a bit longer than that. Jankowski underwent surgery on May 27, two days after injuring his finger while making a diving catch in the outfield. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 14)

RHP Jacob deGrom (stress reaction in right scapula)

Expected return: Early to mid-July

deGrom had a bullpen session on June 17 and it went well, according to Showalter. deGrom hasn’t pitched in a game since being diagnosed with a stress reaction in his right shoulder at the end of Spring Training. — Bill Ladson/Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 17)

RHP Trevor May (stress reaction in right humerus)

Expected return:
Early July

Following a disappointing May 2 outing in which he allowed two runs, May said he hadn’t felt right since missing time early this season due to a sore right triceps muscle. He subsequently underwent testing that revealed a stress reaction in the lower portion of his humerus, the bone that runs from the shoulder to the elbow. May was shut down for four weeks before restarting a light throwing program on June 10. The rest of his rehab program should take another several weeks, but May isn’t eligible to return until at least July 2 anyway. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: June 14)

RHP Sean Reid-Foley (recovery from Tommy John surgery)

Expected return:

An MRI taken May 1 revealed a right UCL tear for Reid-Foley, who had departed the previous night’s game due to elbow discomfort. After receiving his test results, Reid-Foley consulted with additional doctors before deciding to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery on May 10. That typically requires a 12- to 18-month rehab, putting Reid-Foley on track to return around midseason 2023. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: May 10)

LHP Joey Lucchesi (recovery from Tommy John surgery)

Expected return:
August or September

An MRI taken on Lucchesi’s left elbow last June revealed a significant UCL tear, which required Tommy John surgery. The recovery typically takes between 12 and 18 months, putting Lucchesi on the borderline for a 2022 return. Mets officials have told him that if he recovers as scheduled, he should be able to help at least in a relief role before season’s end. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: April 7)

RHP John Curtiss (recovery from Tommy John surgery)

Expected return: 2023

The Mets signed Curtiss on April 6 understanding that he will miss the entire 2022 season rehabbing from Tommy John. They hold an option on his contract for 2023, so if they’re pleased with what they see, they will exercise that and make him a part of their bullpen next season. Curtiss underwent surgery last September while he was in the Brewers’ organization. — Anthony DiComo (Last updated: April 7)
