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.
How many more injuries to position players is it going to take before Sandy finally makes the call for Amed Rosario? Apparently not today.
