Injury bug hits the Mets…again

Over the weekend, the Mets lineup picked up several injuries in a short period of time. In less than three days Lucas Duda and Wilmer Flores were put on the Disabled List, Yoenis Cespedes and Asdrubal Cabrera went down in with hurt hamstrings, Travis d’Arnaud has a wrist contusion and Jacob deGrom missed his scheduled start with a stiff neck. This does not include the other key Mets that were hurt before the season even started (David Wright, Seth Lugo, and Steven Matz).

Of course the injuries came just in time for a three-game series with their biggest division rival, the Washington Nationals. The Mets and their fans have grown accustomed to having to deal with injuries. Here is what they had to deal with last year compared to just 18 games this year:
