The New York Mets made a move this afternoon, just not the one that fans have been anticipating for quite some time.
Matt Harvey was placed on the 10-day DL due to stress on his scapula in his throwing shoulder. Harvey is expected to miss several weeks and the Mets will go back to a five-man rotation, as they did not recall a pitcher.
After finally beginning to hit, Juan Lagares suffered a fractured IP joint in his thumb on Thursday night after a diving attempt on a shallow fly ball.
We've placed Matt Harvey on the 10-Day DL retroactive to 6/15. Juan Lagares goes on the 10-Day DL. We've recalled Matt Reynolds & Nimmo.

Amidst the struggles the Mets are facing, there was still some great news today.
For the first time in what seems like a decade, both Michael Conforto and Yoenis Cespedes are starting at the same time. Terry has the Mets best two hitters batting back-to-back at the top of the lineup tonight.
