Mets injury update: Michael Cuddyer has wrist tendinitis

The veteran has hit very well since coming back from a knee injury.

Michael Cuddyer has been dealing with wrist tendinitis over the past week and will see a doctor today. The veteran has hit just .262/.316/.401 with a 102 wRC+ on the season. After a miserable month of June at the plate, though, he started to turn things around in July just before he hit the disabled list because with knee soreness.

Cuddyer returned from the disabled list on August 11, and in 60 plate appearances since then, he has hit .327/.383/.509 with two home runs. Originally the Mets' everyday left fielder, Cuddyer has become part of a mix of several regulars manning left field or first base, as the team promoted Michael Conforto and acquired Yoenis Cespedes, Juan Uribe, and Kelly Johnson before the trade deadline.

With Lucas Duda still working his way back from a back injury—he'll play his first rehab games this weekend with the Binghamton Mets—Cuddyer and Daniel Murphy had been playing first base. But Murphy is dealing with a sore quad right now. Tonight, the Mets are starting Johnson at first base.
