Cespedes (hamstring) begins rehab in minors

According to Alderson, this timeframe is "conjecture at this point". After a media relations member ended Alderson's news conference, the general manager quipped: "With a 5 ERA in the bullpen, a lot of people can help us there".

Collins said when Cespedes returns he will want to play in every game but the team can not afford to have him sidelined for another month therefore he will be getting periods of time off.

Lugo, on the other hand, earned three runs over six innings in his last outing in Double-A Binghamton, along with eight hits, two walks and seven punch outs. He felt soreness in his right quadriceps while running the bases in his first rehab game Friday night for Class A St. Lucie and the club chose to hold him out until at least Tuesday.

Alderson said he's "definitely" hopeful David Wright will play this season. Minus All-Star closer Jeurys Familia for much of the season, the Mets had converted only 10 of 19 save opportunities.

The Mets announced that newly promoted Tyler Pill would start Tuesday against the Brewers. "I'm really looking forward to it". While cautioning that this date was "conjecture", the Mets will have the DH for that series, making a flawless soft introduction for Cespedes, who went down with a hamstring injury on April 28. He was a combined 4-1 with a 1.60 ERA in nine starts at Triple-A and Double-A. With a one-run lead, manager Terry Collins elected to let the starter hit instead of sending up a pinch hitter.

Alderson said that the injury "reappeared". "Nobody's happy with the won-loss record that we have". Familia said he believes he could be able to start throwing in a month and "I think I'll be back this year". "I do hope he'll start some kind of baseball activity within the near future".
