Mets’ Jake Marisnick hopeful he can avoid trip to injured list

BUFFALO — Jake Marisnick is holding out hope this most recent hamstring distress won’t mail him to the injured listing.

The veteran outfielder on Sunday indicated his proper hamstring was emotion improved, a day immediately after he departed the match with tightness in the muscle mass. Marisnick was on the IL very last month due to the fact of a strain in the other hamstring.

“It’s been a little bit of a unique time,” Marisnick said in advance of the Mets lost 7-3 to the Blue Jays. “It’s a little aggravating, but it’s nicks and bruises. Every person is working with stuff, but hopefully it’s something small and I can get back again out there on the discipline.”

Marisnick, who probable would have been in the lineup Sunday versus lefty Hyun Jin Ryu, has thrived in a platoon role with Brandon Nimmo in heart discipline.

“[Marisnick] has got the ability, he’s got the speed, both on defense and on the bases, so it’s a great weapon,” manager Luis Rojas said. “Unfortunately he’s experienced a pair of momentum stops due to the fact of the accidents that he’s experienced, but proper now we are hoping this is something that keeps him in there.”

The Mets not too long ago launched Billy Hamilton, leaving them devoid of a genuine backup in heart on the key league roster if Marisnick is sidelined.

Jeff McNeil remaining the match with gastrointestinal distress, but Rojas expects to have him back again for the Mets’ subsequent match. Luis Guillorme replaced McNeil at second base in the fourth inning.

Pete Alonso experienced a silent weekend, immediately after hitting 5 homers in 7 game titles. All round, Alonso was one-for-thirteen in the 3 game titles versus the Blue Jays.

“They are however pounding him in a large amount and I imagine he’s subsequent the pattern they are performing with him,” Rojas said. “In, in, in tough, he is capable to lay off a couple, but you could see it’s leading to some result at instances when they go to the secondary pitches due to the fact he is out there hoping to hunt them.

“We’ve noticed him great and then all of a sudden he has two game titles or 3 where by he doesn’t have the identical strategy, so he’s just got to stick to his pitches, to his strike zone.”

Erasmo Ramirez pitched two shutout innings for a 3rd straight stable outing in an extended aid visual appearance. Rojas said he utilised Ramirez due to the fact he wished Steven Matz and Michael Wacha fully refreshing at the rear of Rick Porcello on Tuesday in Philadelphia.
