McNeil said he felt “a little snag” in his left hamstring as he approached first base. He slammed down his helmet after crossing the bag in obvious frustration and after a brief delay walked gingerly back to the Mets dugout, accompanied by a trainer.
“It didn’t feel great, but I don’t think it’s terrible,” McNeil said. “We’ll see what it feels like in the morning.”
An MRI was scheduled for Wednesday in Atlanta to determine the extent of the injury.
McNeil said he hopes it’s not serious enough to send him to the injured list.
“I didn’t feel it pop,” he said. “Just a little snag. Nothing crazy.”
One of the National League’s top hitters, McNeil is batting .332, and he made the All-Star Game for the first time. He has 15 homers and 55 RBIs out of the leadoff spot,
