  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Returns to lineup Tuesday

    McNeil (groin) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.

    McNeil was held out of the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Rockies due to mild groin tightness, but he's ready to rock following Monday's team off day. The 31-year-old will start at second base and bat seventh versus the Phillies and left-hander Ranger Suarez.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Plans to play Tuesday

    McNeil (groin) said he expects to return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    McNeil was on the bench for Sunday's 11-10 loss to the Rockies while he tended to a tight groin, but he felt well enough to enter the contest as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning and singled in his lone at-bat before coming around to score. With a team off day Monday, McNeil looks like he'll be ready to return to a starting role Tuesday, presumably either at second base or in the corner outfield.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Not in lineup Sunday

    McNeil is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.

    McNeil will get his first game off of the 2023 season after appearing in the first 53 contests. Eduardo Escobar will give McNeil a day of rest while playing second base and hitting ninth against Austin Gomber and Colorado.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Tending to tight groin

    Mets manager Buck Showalter said McNeil is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies due to groin tightness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    McNeil picked up the injury at some point during the Mets' 10-7 loss Saturday, when he went 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs while playing all eight innings in the field. Eduardo Escobar will step in at second base Sunday in place of McNeil, who will get at least two full days of rest before the Mets return to action Tuesday versus the Phillies following Monday's team off day.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Scores three times in rout

    McNeil went 3-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and three runs scored in Thursday's 10-1 win over the Cubs.

    McNeil has collected five multi-hit efforts over his last 10 games, though he had gone hitless in the last two contests. The second baseman also picked up his third steal of the season in the fifth inning before scoring on an error. He's batting a reliable .291, but he's added a modest .738 OPS with two home runs, 16 RBI and 22 runs scored through 51 games. He remains a reliable contact hitter with little pop.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: On bench Wednesday

    McNeil is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.

    The Mets don't have a single left-handed hitter (not including switch hitters) in Wednesday's lineup against southpaw Josh Fleming. Eduardo Escobar is playing second base and batting second while McNeil sits.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Moved down to seventh

    McNeil will start at second base and bat seventh in Monday's game against the Nationals.

    The Mets are facing a lefty (Patrick Corbin) in the series finale, but the lefty-hitting McNeil usually bats fifth or sixth even against southpaws. McNeil is sporting just a .487 OPS thus far in May, so the downturn in production could explain his drop in the lineup.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Sits for first time

    McNeil will sit Saturday against the Rockies, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    McNeil's off day comes against lefty Austin Gomber, but as it's his first time out of the lineup all season, there's seemingly no reason to fear that he's slipping into a platoon role. Eduardo Escobar will take over at second base.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Swipes second bag

    McNeil went 0-for-1 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 4-0 loss to Atlanta.

    The game was called after five innings due to rain, preventing McNeil from adding to his line. The 31-year-old has been on a tear, batting .405 (17-for-42) over the last 12 games and boosting his slash line on the season to .298/.416/.415 with one homer, two steals, nine RBI and 11 runs in 113 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Has excellent day at plate

    McNeil went 3-for-3 with one homer, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk in Thursday's victory over the Giants.

    McNeil clobbered his first homer of the season in one of the best games he's had this year. His solo shot in the sixth inning extended New York's lead to 6-4, which he then followed up with an RBI single in the seventh. While it's still early, the California native currently has a .412 OBP, which would be a career-high mark if he can keep it up.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: First pilfer of year

    NcNeil went 0-for-1 with three walks and a stolen base in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

    Blake Snell and Brent Honeywell issued seven free passes in 6.2 innings between them, and McNeil was more than happy to take advantage. The steal was the first of the season for the 31-year-old, but McNeil hasn't really caught fire at the plate yet, slashing .250/.389/.341 through 13 games with four doubles, three runs and five RBI.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Three hits against Milwaukee

    McNeil went 3-for-3 in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.

    All three hits were singles, and the rest of the Mets' lineup managed only five other knocks in a 9-0 loss. McNeil is batting .292 (7-for-24) through six games to begin the season, but he has only one double, one run and two RBI to show for it as the New York offense as a whole tries to find its way out of an early funk.
