Mets OF Michael Cuddyer hopes to return next weekend


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2015) Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer said he is making progress from his knee injury and is hopeful of returning next weekend in Tampa Bay, reports ESPN.com.

"I've done all baseball stuff. The next step is running," Cuddyer said. "I haven't tried that yet. Just casually walking and things like that. The last couple of days have been the best it's been in a month, since it's happened."

If Cuddyer continues to progress from the bone bruise in his knee, he would begin his rehab assignment early next week. When he does return, Cuddyer said he expects to play in right field and first base.

Sore knee keeps Mets LF Michael Cuddyer out of lineup again


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/22/2015) Mets left fielder Michael Cuddyer continues to be hindered by a sore knee, and he remains out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals. Cuddyer was used as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday, drawing a walk and scoring a run in the 7-2 victory.

But he has started just one game since the All-Star break, and the possibility of a trip to the disabled list is still in play. Kirk Nieuwenhuis will once again handle left field in Cuddyer's absence on Wednesday.

"I don't know if I'm confident enough to play a full nine innings yet," Cuddyer said, per ESPN.com. "That's the issue."

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/21/2015) Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer, who has been bothered by a knee injury, could be headed to the disabled list if his health doesn't improve quickly, per a report from FOX Sports' Jon Morosi. 

Cuddyer has been a major disappointment with the Mets this season, hitting just .250 in 81 games in the first year of a big-money deal with New York. The bone bruise on his knee has made him an irregular presence in the Mets' lineup. 


Michael Cuddyer replaced by John Mayberry in Mets' lineup


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2015) Mets left fielder Michael Cuddyer isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game.

Cuddyer was forced to leave the game on Sunday due to knee pain. He's been battling a lingering knee problem for much of the season. 

Cuddyer will be replaced in the lineup by John Mayberry, who gets his 12th start of the year in left. 

Manager Terry Collins said he hopes Cuddyer can avoid a stint on the disabled list by taking medication, reports ESPN.com.

"He got some different medication [Monday], and we're going to see how that plays out during the game," Collins said. "The one thing I told him is I didn't want to start him and then have to take him out in the third or fourth [inning]. We'll just see how he reacts as the day goes by, as he does some work and gets some swings off it. He's still pretty tender."


Mets OF Michael Cuddyer left Sunday's game because of knee

“It’s concerning,” said Cuddyer, per the New York Post. “We’re trying different things to get through it and get relief. To start the game it’s OK, but then as the game progresses it gets tougher.”


Mets LF Michael Cuddyer homers among three hits in loss


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/18/2015) Left fielder Michael Cuddyer was a lone bright spot in what was otherwise a dreadful night for the Mets. Cuddyer went 3 for 5 with a pair of singles and a solo home run in the 12-2 loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

The homer was Cuddyer's eighth of the season. It had no real effect on the outcome of the game however, as the Cardinals were already up 8-0 when Cuddyer went deep. 

Cuddyer has had good success against Cardinals starter John Lackey. He now owns a .333 batting average (11 for 33) with five homers against the veteran right-hander.

This was Cuddyer's first three-hit game since June 2. The performance lifted his season batting average up to a .249 clip. While he has been battling a sore knee, Cuddyer has left the yard twice in his last four games.

Mets LF Michael Cuddyer (bone bruise) remains out of lineup


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/17/2015) The time off during the All-Star break apparently wasn't enough for Mets left fielder Michael Cuddyer to recover from the bone bruise in his left knee, as he remains out of the lineup for Friday's game.

Although, manager Terry Collins admitted he wanted to start Kirk Nieuwenhuis in left field Friday coming off a three-homer game. Cuddyer is expected to start Saturday and Sunday.

Collins added he will consider matchups when deciding to play the veteran outfielder, but he has "no plans" on platooning Cuddyer "at this moment."

Cuddyer hasn't played a complete game since July 5, but has enjoyed success when playing through the injury. In his last three games, he has hit .417 with five hits and a home run in 12 at-bats. Cuddyer said that his knee will "more than likely" have to be managed for the rest of the season.

Mets' Michael Cuddyer cracks first homer since June 5 on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cuddyer, who went 2 for 4 on Friday, picked up his seventh longball of the season, as he went back-to-back with Lucas Duda in the victory.

Cuddyer has been bothered by a sore knee, which has caused him miss six of the last eight starts for the Mets. But he didn't seem to be hampered on Friday, making it through eight innings in left field. 

"He certainly knows what he's doing at the plate," Mets manager Terry Collins said of Cuddyer, per MLB.com. "I don't think the knee was causing him [to struggle]. Maybe he had a tough time hitting against it. At the same time, if he knows he can't hurt it any more it may relax him a bit more."

Mets LF Michael Cuddyer will avoid disabled list


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/1/2015) Mets left fielder Michael Cuddyer received good news when an MRI on his left knee showed no structural damage, which will likely keep him off the disabled list, per MLB.com.

Cuddyer left Tuesday's game after suffering the injury, and was kept out of the lineup on Wednesday.

"I was real concerned when it happened because this guy never says boo," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "He never says a word about anything at all. When I went down to look at him … and he had trouble bending his knee, I was nervous. So the news is finally some good news, a bright spot, instead of another guy on the 15-day DL."

Cuddyer is on pace to return to the lineup some time this week.

"I'm a competitor," Cuddyer said. "I want to be out there competing. I don't need time away from the game to clear anything. I take pride in being a professional, and going out there and doing my job. I'm not going to use this as a crutch, saying I need to get away from the game. I want to be out there. I want to be playing. I want to be competing. Which is why you take care of it, and get back out there as quick as you can."


Mets LF Michael Cuddyer sits with knee soreness on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/1/2015) Mets left fielder Michael Cuddyer is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs. Cuddyer exited Tuesday's game with knee soreness, so it's of little surprise that he is on the bench for Wednesday's tilt.

John Mayberry will get the start in left field and bat fifth. Manager Terry Collins said Cuddyer would need a day or two off, but he does not think a DL stint will be necessary. Cuddyer is unlikely to play on Thursday.
