Mets put Lindor on 10-day IL with oblique strain

The New York Mets placed shortstop Francisco Lindor on the 10-day IL on Saturday with a right oblique strain.

Lindor left Friday night’s 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the fifth inning with soreness on his right side.

Lindor winced after grounding out to second base. He took a few steps out of the batter’s box but then peeled off toward the Mets’ dugout on the first-base side.

Accompanied by an athletic trainer, Lindor then headed down the tunnel toward the clubhouse.

In his first season with the Mets after being acquired from the Cleveland Indians in a January trade, Lindor is hitting .228 with 11 home runs and eight stolen bases in 88 games. He agreed to a $341 million, 10-year contract just before Opening Day.
