Cespedes was replaced in the top of the sixth inning of the Mets' 6-4 loss to the Phillies.

Zimmerman batted only.242 with 36 homers and 157 RBIs over the previous three seasons, a stretch in which he was limited to 271 games by a variety of injuries.

New York Mets left fielder Yoenis Cespedes leaps for a ball hit by Philadelphia Phillies' Maikel Franco for an RBI double during the third inning of a baseball game Thursday, April 20, 2017, in New York.

Duda was placed there after suffering from a hyperextension in his left elbow. But with d'Arnaud limited to pinch hitting, the Mets needed a healthy catcher, so they promoted Kevin Plawecki, who was hitting.270 with a homer for Triple-A Las Vegas. Wilmer Flores is dealing with a joint infection as well, leaving the team dangerously shorthanded as they head into a very important series.

Cespedes, 31, suffered the hamstring injury while running to second base in the fifth inning Thursday night against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Cespedes' timetable, before the MRI he is set to have Friday, is 2-3 days according to Mike Puma of Newsday.

Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal noted the Mets are saying Cespedes has a cramp in his left hamstring.

Cabrera tweaked his hamstring a few days ago and the Mets chose to let him have a day instead of exacerbating the issue. Familia completed a 15-game suspension Thursday for an offseason domestic violence incident involving his wife.
