Manager Terry Collins said that Duda was tracking pitches but no other activity. This news comes a few days after the Mets claimed to have gotten good news on Duda's progress and that he was going to be activated as soon as his DL time is over.
“We got a favorable report on Duda,” GM Sandy Alderson said on Monday. “We think with a little bit of rest and some basic core and back exercises, he should be back when the DL time is over.”
Duda has a small thoracic disc herniation, an injury that had given him trouble earlier in August. He still has nine days left on the DL before he would be activated.
