UPDATE, 9:08 PM:
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Eric Young, Jr. is likely to land on the 15-day disabled list due to his strained hamstring. Matt den Dekker will be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to replace Young on the roster if/when the disabled list move is made.
Young, Jr. entered the game Saturday as a pinch-runner and stole a base.
The severity of Young’s hasmtring injury isn’t known, but the Mets erred on the side of caution when Juan Lagares injured his hamstring in April.
Young is a player whose value lies almost solely with his legs, so it would behoove the Mets to wait until he’s 100 percent before he returns.
If Young lands on the disabled list, the Mets would likely dip to Triple-A Las Vegas for either Kirk Nieuwenhuis or Matt den dekker.
