 NEW YORK (AP) -The Mets' banged-up outfield took another hit Wednesday night when Endy Chavez left a game against the Philadelphia Phillies with a hamstring injury that likely will land him on the disabled list.
Chavez hurt himself in the bottom of the seventh inning. With the bases loaded and one out and the Mets trailing by one, Chavez hit a grounder to shortstop and hustled to try to 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.
Chavez was to have an MRI exam Thursday, and manager Willie Randolph said after the Mets' 4-2 loss that he expected Chavez would probably wind up on the disabled list.
``It doesn't look too good,'' Randolph said. ``He went down pretty hard. I was sure it's going to be the DL for him. We've got him iced up right now.''
Chavez, normally a backup, went 1-for-4 with a stolen base. He is hitting .292 with a home run and 13 RBIs.
``I felt a pop and something went wrong in my leg,'' Chavez said. ``I've never had anything like this before. Right now I just want to know what it's going to take to get back.''
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.
