Mets Injury Tracker: Zack Scott updates timeline for Carlos Carrasco, Michael Conforto, Jeff McNeil

Carlos Carrasco pitching at 2021 Mets spring training

Here is the latest news and possible return dates for Mets players on the IL…

Carlos Carrasco (hamstring)

Mets GM Zack Scott said on June 11 that Carrasco is 48 hours removed from a PRP shot and that he’ll “be down for a little bit.” Scott added there isn’t any pain really, but that they’ve hit a “plateau” in terms of strength gains.

The Mets will soon go back to what they were doing before, which was improving the strength and hopefully seeing some better progression in that area.

Mets president Sandy Alderson said on June 10 during an interview on MLB Network that he’s “hopeful” Carrasco will be able to return at some point between early and late July.

Potential return date: July

Zack Scott said on June 11 that McNeil will be start his rehab assignment this weekend in Brooklyn and then Syracuse, which could “possibly” lead to an activation next weekend.

SNY’s Andy Martino noted on June 8 that McNeil may be headed to Triple-A Syracuse this week to start playing again.

McNeil suffered a significant hamstring strain on May 16.

Potential return date: Mid June

Albert Almora Jr. (shoulder)

Almora began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on June 8, playing five innings in center field while going 0-for-2 at the plate.

Almora landed on the IL on May 12 after crashing into the center field wall at Citi Field while trying to make a catch.

Potential return date: Mid June

Luis Guillorme (oblique)

Guillorme is on track to be activated during the Mets’ series against the San Diego Padres at Citi Field that starts on June 11.

If Guillorme is activated on schedule, Luis Rojas said on June 11 that he foresees him playing mostly second base.

Guillorme’s last at-bat with the Mets was on April 24.

Potential return date: June 11-13

Michael Conforto (hamstring)

Mets president Sandy Alderson and GM Zack Scott said that Conforto will likely return “about a week later” than Jeff McNeil, who is set to start a rehab assignment the weekend of June 11.

Conforto suffered a significant hamstring strain on May 16.

Potential return date: Late June

Brandon Nimmo (finger)

Rojas told reporters on June 6 that Nimmo is taking dry hacks, but still not hitting baseballs.

“Brandon is taking some dry swings and trying to get the feel of the bat rolling there in the hand.”

The Mets are still waiting until Nimmo can swing pain-free before planning his next rehab assignment.

The outfielder said on May 22 after returning from his rehab assignment that he was dealing with “a pesky little nerve” in his left index finger.

Potential return date: TBD

J.D. Davis (hand)

Zack Scott said on June 11 that Davis got another injection in his hand and that “the progression’s gonna take awhile.”

Luis Rojas said in the first week of June that Davis is still wearing a splint, and there is no timetable for his return.

Potential return date: TBD

Noah Syndergaard (TJS recovery)

Syndergaard was shut down from throwing for six weeks on May 27 after an MRI revealed inflammation, but no structural damage.

After the six-week shutdown, Syndergaard will need to again build his arm strength up. GM Zack Scott said on June 11 that he’s still not throwing.

Mets president Sandy Alderson said on June 10 that Sept. 1 is a potential return date for Syndergaard.

Potential return date: Sept. 1

Johneshwy Fargas (shoulder)

An MRI confirmed that Fargas suffered a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder while crashing into the center field fence on May 24. He was placed on the IL on May 26.

Potential return date: TBD

Tommy Hunter (back)

Hunter was placed on the IL on May 21 due to lower back pain.

Zack Scott said on June 11 that his back is still bothering him, and the team is trying to pinpoint exactly what’s going on.

Potential return date: TBD

Jordan Yamamoto (shoulder)

The Mets originally placed Yamamoto on the 10-day IL before transferring him to the 60-day lL on May 25 to make room on the 40-man roster for the newly acquired Billy McKinney.

Potential return date: Late July

Athletics-Berry calls on athletes to seek change in their communities

Published

on

EUGENE, Oregon (Reuters) – With a raised right fist, American hammer thrower Gwen Berry on Thursday reinforced her quest for social change.

“I want to impact the world,” Berry, wearing an “Activist Athlete” T-shirt, told reporters after qualifying sixth for Saturday’s final at the U.S. Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon.

“There are a lot of things going on that are bigger than sport. As athletes we can and should use our voices to bring awareness to issues that affect our communities.”

Berry did just that at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, raising her fist when the U.S. national anthem was played during her medal ceremony.

She was suspended for 12 months by the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) because of International Olympic Committee rules that ban protests and demonstrations.

The USOPC in March, though, said that athletes competing in the U.S. Olympic trials can protest, including kneeling or raising a clenched fist on the podium or at the start line during the national anthem.

“Our communities are under attack,” said Berry, a 31-year-old mother. “I want to continue even after I’m a hammer thrower.”

Her protest came four days after world 200 metres champion Noah Lyles had raised his left fist that was enclosed in a fingerless glove before the start of the men’s 100m final.

“Black lives matter,” Lyles said. “I felt like it was important that I throw up some symbol. I’ve done it before and I’m going to continue to do it.”

35 Laugh Out Loud Clippers Memes | Sports Takes & News | TooAthletic.com

The Clippers are a team that has always been in the shadow of the Los Angeles Lakers. Even when the Clippers have produced great teams, they have not been able to get over the hump to win a title. Some say the Clippers may be cursed, but I don’t believe it. I do think the Clippers time is coming, and now that they have Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on their squad, that time may be sooner than later. To celebrate how far the Clippers have come to finally becoming relevant, I have pulled out the memes. Here are 35 laugh out loud Clippers memes.
