The Mets will deploy Ruben Tejada and Dilson Herrera up the middle in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, and Flores, who is also dealing with a back issue, should be considered questionable for the regular season finale Sunday.
Hechavarria has missed nearly the entire month of September with a troubling hamstring injury and with the Marlins set to finish up their final series of the season this weekend, it's unlikely Hechavarria will make a return to the team this year.
He has not started in a few days as he has been dealing with a neck issue, but he should be good to go for the final two games of the season.
Flores apparently sustained the minor injury in the game Wednesday. Consider him day-to-day for the remainder of the regular season.
Seager must have been inspired by the promotion of his brother to the Dodgers as he's been scorching hot over the last two months. Most people consider Corey Seager a better prospect than Kyle, but hitting .339 with eight homers and 10 doubles over a 32-game stretch is tough to argue with.
He is back in the lineup after missing four straight games with the Achilles issue. Reyes may just be a big name at this stage of his career, as the production has lagged far behind his draft day price tag. It will be interesting to see if the Rockies have any success in moving on from the veteran during the offseason so that Trevor Story can get a legitimate shot in 2016.
Tuesday's absence marks the sixth straight for Ahmed, who injured his back making a spectacular fall-away throw last week. Ahmed recently reported improvement, but it's uncertain when he may return for Arizona. Chris Owings will man short once again Tuesday with Brandon Drury at second base.
Castro started the last three games at second base, but he will get a day off Tuesday. Tommy La Stella will man the keystone for the Cubs on Tuesday night.
Desmond collected three hits, a home run and two runs scored in Sunday's game against the Phillies, but he will get a day off Monday following six straight starts at shortstop. Top prospect Trea Turner will start in his place at shortstop Monday, batting second for the Nationals.
Adames suffered the pair of contusions when he collided with the Dodgers' Joc Pederson while covering third base. The Rockies had been using Adames as their regular shortstop the last few days with Jose Reyes (Achilles) recovering from an injury of his own. If both players are unavailable for Tuesday's series opener in Arizona, Rafael Ynoa or Daniel Descalso would likely get the start at short.
