Jeff McNeil has done it all for the Mets this season, but now the team's best hitter could be facing time on the Injured List.
With the Mets trailing the Braves 5-3 in the ninth inning, McNeil did his best to try to leg out a grounder to short for a base hit. McNeil was out on a close play, and after lunging to reach the first base bag, he came up limping, immediately slamming his helmet down in frustration.
After the game, Mickey Callaway said that McNeil's hamstring tightened up on him and that he was still being evaluated.
McNeil did speak to reporters in the clubhouse as well, saying that his hamstring didn't feel great, but that he'd know more about the extent of his injury on Wednesday morning.
"It didn't feel great, I don't think it's terrible," said McNeil. "We have no timeline. I guess we'll see how it feels in the morning.
"I didn't feel it pop. I felt a little snag. Nothing crazy. I guess we'll see where it is in the morning. ... Hopefully, maybe it's just a cramp that I felt, but I guess we'll see."
McNeil will undergo an MRI in Atlanta on Wednesday morning.
McNeil went 1-5 on the night with an RBI single. His batting average currently stands at .332.
If McNeil was to miss any time, it would certainly put the Mets in a tough spot, with Robinson Cano already on the IL. McNeil has helped fill that void at second, while also splitting time in the outfield as well.
