Mets' Jeff McNeil (hamstring) begins rehab assignment
New York Mets infielder Jeff McNeil (hamstring) started his rehab assignment on Sunday.
McNeil went 0-for-2 in his first rehab game with High-A Brooklyn and he played five innings at first base. He has missed about a month with a left hamstring strain but is on track to return to the Mets roster by the end of the week. Jose Peraza will likely revert to a reserve role once McNeil is cleared.
McNeil is averaging 7.4 FanDuel points per game this season. He is slashing .242/.336/.374 with 3 homers, 8 RBI, and 13 runs scored across 113 plate appearances. McNeil has improved his hard-hit rate to 36.7 percent after finishing in the bottom-five percent (26.5) last year.
