CT-Conforto strained an oblique muscle on his right side, and it's too early to determine whether he will be able to play in New York's opener against World Series champion Washington on March 26.
Analyse: Conforto was injured March 7 against the Nationals and returned to New York on Monday night to meet with Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek. ''We're going to back him off here from activities the next couple of days and then reassess him next week,'' Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said. Conforto, an All-Star in 2017, set career highs last season with 33 homers and 92 RBIs while batting .257 with an .856 OPS in 151 games.
