The New York Mets (66-60) are fighting for National League wild-card position, and Marcus Stroman isn't about to miss a chance to face one of the teams in the playoff race even with hamstring tightness. Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported Stroman underwent an MRI that revealed the tightness. He made his first All-Star Game with a 2.96 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 99 strikeouts in 124.2 innings and figures to help anchor the Mets rotation next year as well if he can rediscover that form. That means Stroman's start against Chicago on Tuesday could carry significant wild-card implications.
