NEW YORK (AP) -The Mets' banged-up outfield took another hit Wednesday night when right fielder Endy Chavez left the game against the Philadelphia Phillies with a hamstring injury.
Chavez hurt himself in the bottom of the seventh. With the bases loaded and one out and the Mets trailing by one, Chavez hit a grounder to shortstop and hustled to try and beat out a double play. But Jimmy Rollins stepped on second and threw out Chavez to end the inning. As Chavez passed first, he collapsed to the ground in pain.
He was helped off the field and replaced by Carlos Gomez.
The Mets said Chavez hurt his left hamstring and was being evaluated in the clubhouse.
New York got good news earlier in the day, when Shawn Green did some light work in the outfield. He said he was optimistic he'll be ready to return from the disabled when he's eligible Sunday. He hasn't played since May 25 because of a broken right foot.
``If all goes well I should be ready for Sunday,'' Green said.
Left fielder Moises Alou also is on the DL with a quadriceps injury and isn't sure when he'll be able to return.
