Before their series finale with the Braves last night, the Mets made a handful of roster moves. The team activated Michael Conforto from the injured list, called up pitchers Tylor Megill and Corey Oswalt from Syracuse, placed Tomás Nido on the injured list with a right wrist contusion, optioned pitchers Yennsy Díaz and Sean Reid-Foley to Syracuse, and transferred pitchers Joey Lucchesi and Robert Gsellman to the 60-day injured list.
Conforto, whose return was the most pressing of these moves, doubled in his first plate appearance back from a hamstring injury. The team planned to activate him on Tuesday, but a positive COVID-19 test from a Syracuse Mets employee postponed his activation, and he joined the team after providing a negative test.
The most concerning loss is that of Nido. An MRI on Wednesday showed no structural damage, but the team expects him to be out until early July. The Mets had called up Patrick Mazeika on Tuesday to take cover for his potential absence.
Megill and Oswalt both pitched well in the team’s 7-3 win against the Braves last night. And given all of the injuries, there’s a decent chance the team will call upon Reid-Foley and Díaz again for help at some point in the near future.
