It is d'Arnaud's fourth trip to the disabled list since 2015.
New York Mets' Wilmer Flores (4) heads to first base after being walked with the bases loaded during the seventh inning of a baseball game against the Miami Marlins, Friday, May 5, 2017, in New York. "It seems like just when he starts to get it going, something happens". "Our guys came out and scored some runs early and gave us a good chance to win and I just didn't get it done tonight".
"I'm not really overly concerned", Mattingly said Thursday night.
NY stopped a six-game home losing streak and scored at least five runs for the eighth consecutive game overall - the club's longest streak in 10 years.
NY was already without three important players who got injured in April: Syndergaard, slugger Yoenis Cespedes and first baseman Lucas Duda.
Once the Marlins series is over, the Mets will get to see what the rest of the leagues is like, starting with a rematch of last year's Wild Card game with a series against the San Francisco Giants. Gsellman has allowed at least 3 Earned Runs in his last 5 starts, but was able to get credit for the win against Atlanta in his last outing. Ziegler is as tough as there is to face and they just put good at-bats on, didn't try to do too much, worked the middle of the field as you saw. The Marlins would add six runs in the fourth inning, four of which were charged to Montero. "Very, very impressed by the way they went about things". Jacoby Ellsbury, in his first appearance since injuring an elbow Monday, pinch hit with two outs and walked after a 2-1 pitch at the knees was called a ball by umpire Ryan Blakney.
In his fifth big league season, d'Arnaud is batting.203 with four homers and 16 RBIs. The move is retroactive to Tuesday, and Chen is expected to miss only one turn.
"You're never out of the game in the PCL (Pacific Coast League) - never", Collins said.
That's something Rivera said he's been doing a bit less of late - as teams learn he his style and start to mix more off-speed pitches early in counts. Reyes started at shortstop, with Flores playing third base.
The Mets placed catcher Travis d'Arnaud on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a bruised bone in his right wrist. Right-handers Odrisamer Despaigne and Jose Urena are scheduled to make spot starts the next two days.
Montero is 0-0 with a 2.50 ERA in nine games (two starts) against the Marlins, whom he has faced more than any other opponent.
The Mets trailed 7-1 after the Marlins sent 11 batters to the plate during a six-run fourth inning against starter Rafael Montero and reliever Josh Smoker.
