The Mets have recently started to get some of their banged up players back to action, but they may have another injury on their hands.

Jonathan Villar was replaced in the lineup by Travis Blankenhorn (who came in to play second with Jose Peraza sliding to third) in the bottom of the sixth inning of Wednesday’s afternoon matchup with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The team later announced that Villar left the game due to right hamstring tightness.

Villar was 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored at the time he was pulled, and he’s been productive for the Mets as they’ve dealt with a litany of injuries. Villar has assumed the role of leadoff man for the Mets with both Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil on the IL.

On the season, Villar is slashing .241/.331/.406 with five home runs, 13 RBI and 21 runs scored.
