Mets' Duda having MRI after having soreness

The SportsXchange

New York Mets first baseman/outfielder Lucas Duda was scheduled to have an MRI taken after experiencing soreness during Friday's win over the host Philadelphia Phillies.

"We'll find out what the deal is, but he was pretty sore last night when the game was over," manager Terry Collins told reporters. "He was still sore again today -- real sore this morning. So he's going to be unavailable today. ... He came in last night and said his side was hurting him pretty bad."

Daniel Murphy was in the starting lineup at first base Saturday for the Mets. Collins said that right-handed-hitting Josh Satin will man first Sunday against Phillies left-hander John Lannan. Murphy will return to second base.

Collins said first baseman Ike Davis could return from the minors if Duda has to go on the disabled list. Davis was demoted to Class AAA Las Vegas on June 9 after batting just .161 with 66 strikeouts.

Davis is hitting .333 with a .480 OBP in 11 games with Las Vegas, including two straight two-home run games.
