As the Mets wrap up a West Coast swing Sunday, two veterans are on the mend and could be back in the near future.
Manager Mickey Callaway said the Mets won't activate second baseman Robinson Canó until Tuesday at the earliest, when the team opens a series at Citi Field against the Giants. He's been on the injured list since May 22 with a quad injury he suffered legging out a ground ball.
Adeiny Hechavarría has done a solid job as Canó's replacement, as he's batting .300 over his last 11 contests entering Sunday's game. Canó is hitting .241 with three homers.
Meanwhile, the scuffling Mets' bullpen could receive a shot in the arm once Justin Wilson returns. The left-hander will toss a bullpen session Monday as he recovers from left elbow soreness that's held him out since May 6.
Wilson has appeared in 11 games after signing a two-year deal with the team during the offseason. His bullpen Monday will determine how close he is to rejoining the team.
