He was off to a hot start in 2017 with a.255/.364/.636 slash line and six home runs in 15 games prior to Thursday. Cespedes, who said it felt like a "shock" in his hamstring, is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Friday, though both he and Collins are hopeful he will miss only a couple of days.

Duda suffered a hyperextended elbow against the Phillies on Wednesday when Cesar Hernandez crashed into Duda's glove with his shoulder while the first baseman was trying to field a throw from the pitcher.

INF Wilmer Flores (knee infection) did not play Thursday night, when the Mets fell to the Phillies 6-4.

Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes has limped off the field with a hamstring cramp and exited the game against Philadelphia. Left-hander Sean Gilmartin and infielder T.J. Rivera were recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas - a day earlier, Gilmartin was sent down to the minors in a series of roster moves that included transferring third baseman David Wright to the 60-day disabled list while recovering from neck surgery.

"Obviously, when you're chasing a team, it's nice to try to make up some ground", Mets manager Terry Collins said.

According to Xinhua, the mission will provide an "important technological basis" for the construction of China's space station. The Tianzhou-1 will dock with China's space laboratory, the Tiangong-2 launched last fall, to experiment with refueling.

Cespedes, who left in the fifth inning after pulling up while running the bases, said doctors told him he likely will be out two to three days.

"We'll grind it out - we always have, we always will", Collins said following the game Thursday. Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera was out of the lineup, too, with a hamstring problem and catcher Travis d'Arnaud was sidelined with a bruised right wrist.

DeGrom doesn't have a decision in three starts this season despite a 1.89 ERA. He is 2-2 with a 3.12 ERA in seven starts against the Nationals.

Flores is a career.254 hitter in five seasons with the Mets.
