The New York Mets open a series with defending NL East Champion Washington Nationals at Citi Field this weekend  with serious injury issues. 1B Lucas Duda(Elbow) and INF Wilmer Flores(Knee Infection) have been placed on the 10 day DL while OF Yoenis Cespedes(Hamstring) and C Travis d’Arnaud(wrist) are also not in the lineup. The team has recalled INF  T.J. Rivera and P Sean Gilmartin to offset the bodies,  Matt Harvey has been moved up to pitch tonight with Jacob de Grom battling a stiff neck. Meanwhile, 3B-captain David Wright(Back,Shoulder)  has been placed on 60 day DL but continues to try and comeback. The Mets should be Ok short term at 1B with Jay Bruce and other options allowing Michael Conforto to join Juan Lagares and Curtis Granderson to form a good balanced outfield with defense and hitting. Cespedes is key, if he is lost for ANY extended time(does not look like he will) this team is cooked.
