Mets Injury: Dilson Herrera leaves game with quad strain

The 20-year-old second baseman hurt his quad legging out an infield single.

Dilson Herrera left the Mets' game with the Braves after straining his right quad on an infield single. The 20-year-old had hit his third major league home run earlier in the game and has hit .220/.303/.407 in 66 plate appearances since he was called up by the Mets from Double-A Binghamton. Of course, his season is almost certainly over now that he's suffered the quad injury.

Acquired from the Pirates in the deal that sent Pittsburgh Marlon Byrd and John Buck and also netted the Mets relief pitcher Vic Black last year. At the time he was called up, Herrera was the youngest player in Major League Baseball. Given his age, his .316 wOBA and 105 wRC+ in his brief time in the big leagues were more than respectable. Whether the Mets trade Daniel Murphy this winter or not, Herrera figures to be in the discussion for significant major league playing time in 2015, either at the beginning of the season or shortly thereafter.
