Don't expect to see injured Mets veterans Todd Frazier and Jed Lowrie on the field on Opening Day.

Mickey Callaway indicated on Thursday that the two infielders won't be healthy by the time the Mets open the season next week.

"I just don't see it," Callaway said.

The Mets' plans for Jeff McNeil are changing out of necessity.

With veteran infielders Jed Lowrie and Todd Frazier both nursing injuries, McNeil -- who's only played infield as a professional but was set to primarily be an outfielder in 2019 -- will now take more reps at third base, Mickey Callaway said Friday. McNeil will split his time between third and left field and will start at third base Sunday against the Cardinals.

Lowrie updates media on injury 00:00:37
New York Mets infielder Jed Lowrie updates media on his knee injury. He doesn't confirm a timetable or if he'll be ready opening day.

Jed Lowrie and the Mets tried to clear up some lingering questions on the extent of the infielder's sore left knee on Saturday, announcing the official diagnosis as a capsule sprain. 

The 34-year-old had an MRI earlier this week that revealed no structural damage while manager Mickey Callaway repeatedly said on Friday that the injury was "not that serious."

Lowrie, however, has not resumed baseball activities yet and said on Saturday before the Mets' Grapefruit League game against the Braves he has "no timetable" on when that would be or if he would be ready by Opening Day.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Mickey Callaway was flawless in his execution of the official message on Friday, repeating several times that Jed Lowrie's injury was "not serious." That was the line, and he was sticking to it.

The manager offered little additional information; we know only that the MRI on Lowrie's left knee showed no structural damage, the Mets are terming the injury "soreness behind his left knee," and Lowrie hasn't yet spoken publicly since returning to New York.

Jed Lowrie speaks on knee injury 00:00:41
New York Mets infielder Jed Lowrie speaks for the first time about feeling constant pain behind his knee.

Good news came the Mets' way on Thursday following Jed Lowrie's MRI in New York.

Dealing with soreness in the back of his left knee, Lowrie made the trek north to see if there was anything concerning. Luckily, the MRI showed no structural damage, Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen said on WCBS 880. Van Wagenen added that the team will be cautious with Lowrie, and will "bring him along slowly."

Lowrie, whom the Mets signed to a two-year, $20 million contract, hasn't been participating in all activities...
