Player Notes
Mets placed OF Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 22, with a left knee injury.

Advice: The Mets held out as long as they could with Cuddyer, but the veteran outfielder's knee just wasn't getting any better. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Michael Conforto has been called up to take Cuddyer's roster spot and will also take over as the regular left fielder.

Fri, Jul 24 Rotoworld
Mets manager Terry Collins said Thursday that Michael Cuddyer (knee) received more medication on Thursday and is expected to feel better on Friday.

Advice: The team had hoped to make a decision on whether or not he needed to go to the disabled list by Thursday, but it appears as though they'll wait another day. If Cuddyer is unable to return to the lineup on Friday, a backdated stint on the DL seems like a reasonable possibility.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said that a decision on the disabled list for Michael Cuddyer (knee) will be made Thursday.

Advice: Cuddyer's nagging left knee isn't getting any better and he's being looked at by a doctor on Thursday. Alderson admitted that he'd be "surprised" if Cuddyer could continue at close to normal, so an extended absence seems like the most likely possibility. Of course, it has been that way for quite some time now and the Mets have resisted a move.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Thursday that Michael Cuddyer (knee) is being looked at by a doctor.

Advice: Cuddyer's left knee has been an issue for quite some time now and Collins said Thursday that he actually feels worse. A stint on the disabled list feels inevitable at this point, though it's surprising the Mets didn't get to this point a while ago. Top prospect Michael Conforto could be called up from Double-A if or when it finally happens, but John Mayberry, Jr. is starting in left field Thursday.

Michael Cuddyer (knee) remains out of the Mets' starting lineup Thursday against the Dodgers.

Advice: John Mayberry Jr. will start in left field and bat cleanup versus Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw. Cuddyer continues to miss games with a lingering left knee injury, but the Mets haven't made a decision about a possible disabled list stint. Michael Conforto is ready and waiting in Double-A.

Michael Cuddyer (knee) remained out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Advice: That's now 11 of the last 17 games he's missed due to a nagging left knee injury. It seems silly that the Mets haven't placed Cuddyer on the disabled list yet, but at this point it doesn't appear a move will be made. He's available to pinch-hit. Kirk Nieuwenhuis is in left field Wednesday.

Wed, Jul 22 Rotoworld
Michael Cuddyer (knee) drew a walk and scored a run in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Advice: Cuddyer has missed the last two starts with his ongoing left knee issue. It appears at this point that he'll avoid the disabled list, but it's unclear when he'll be ready to return to the lineup.

Wed, Jul 22 Rotoworld
Michael Cuddyer (knee) remains out of the Mets' lineup Tuesday against the Nationals.

Advice: Cuddyer took oral anti-inflammatories on Monday for his ailing left knee and could finally be placed on the disabled list if there's no improvement in the next two days. Kirk Nieuwenhuis will start in left field on Tuesday.

Michael Cuddyer could be placed on the disabled list if his left knee doesn't show improvement in the next two days.

Advice: Cuddyer made an early exit from Sunday's extra-inning marathon against the Cardinals and received oral anti-inflammatories on Monday. His knee has been a nagging issue, so the best thing for him might be some extended rest. The Mets reportedly aren't considering a call-up for top prospect Michael Conforto if Cuddyer needs to go on the DL.
