Mets Injury Update: Dilson Herrera exits with quad strain

By on 9/21/2014 11:00:00 AM

The New York Mets improved to 75-80 on the season following a 4-2 win over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday. Dilson Herrera went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored. But he left the game for a pinch-runner in the sixth inning with a right quad strain. While there is no official word as to how much time Herrera will miss, he could be done for the season.

As reported by Adam Rubin of, Herrera's season might be over after a strained right quadriceps Saturday at Turner Field. Herrera indicated that the quad has bothered him before but felt it tighten running out an infield single in the sixth inning.

Manager Terry Collins likes what he sees in Herrera, but knows with only seven games left in the season and the nature of the injury, that Herrera could be finished for 2014.
“We’ll see how he is in a couple of days, but certainly you’ve got to be very careful with those -- any of those leg injuries. It’s too bad.”

Herrera, a 20-year old second baseman from Colombia, hit .220 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 18 games since being called up from Double-A Binghamton.  In four Minor League seasons, Herrera has a batting average of .297 with 34 home runs and 187 RBI.
