New York Mets Injury Report

Without the first week of March being over, the New York Mets have already been plagued with the injury bug again.

Amed Rosario left Saturday’s game against the Marlins with right knee irritation. Rosario is very optimistic that he will have a speedy recovery. The Mets have not given any new information regarding the injury.

Jacob deGrom (back) threw a bullpen session today with no issues at all. He will throw live batting practice on Sunday which will hopefully lead to start later in the week. His status for opening day has been questionable but without any setbacks he should be good to go.

Anthony Swarzak (calf) has been sidelined over the last week but looks to resume throwing on Friday. Swarzak is also questionable for opening day but has been able to walk without pain which is an encouraging sign for the team.

Dominic Smith (quad) has been sidelined since the first game of the spring and also is questionable for opening day. Smith might not even be with the Mets come opening day with Adrian Gonzalez likely the opening day starter. Smith did some drills and jogged on Thursday and will likely not be rushed back as the Mets want to make sure their prospect first baseman is healthy.

T.J. Rivera (right elbow) was placed on the 60-day DL about two weeks ago and has a return date of late May/early June. Rivera has been rehabbing from Tommy John Surgery but even for an infielder the recovery process if very long.

David Wright (shoulder) has his entire career in question. He is still fighting to make a return but the team is already moving to a future without him. When healthy he may still have something left but time is running out on the captain’s great career.

Speaking of the future, Michael Conforto (shoulder) took soft toss in the cage on Thursday. It was the first time he has taken soft toss since his unfortunate injury last season. His return will hopefully be in early May but the Mets will give Conforto as much time as he needs.
