Mets Cespedes sidelined with hip strain

With AP Photos.The New York Mets have placed outfielder Yoenis Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hip flexor.

The team says Cespedes had a precautionary MRI that showed a mild strain Tuesday.

Cespedes was available to pinch-hit, but NY manager Mickey Callaway said he would only use him in "an obvious chance to win the game". Cespedes was placed on the disabled list retroactive to Monday. Phillip Evans has been called up from Triple-A and is starting in left field on Wednesday.

Watered-down version of Mets swamped by Blue Jays
Godley was winless in two starts against the Mets a year ago despite surrendering three earned runs in 11 innings (2.31 ERA). Consider: Before the rain delay, Wheeler gave up one run and one hit in three innings, striking out six and walking none.

He will be eligible to return for the start of New York's series in Milwaukee on May 24.

In 37 games this season, Cespedes, who has battled several leg injuries the past couple of seasons, is batting.255 with eight home runs and 28 RBIs.

All of this coming after a 2017 season in which the Mets toyed back and forth with a Cespedes injury before they finally shut him down and he played in only 81 games.
