Mets announce Robinson Cano has left hamstring strain
New York Mets second baseman Robinson Cano is dealing with fresh injury issues.
The Mets announced that Cano left Sunday’s game with a left hamstring strain, with no word on the severity.
Robinson Cano's left hamstring is strained, the Mets say. That is a more aggressive initial diagnosis than they usually offer.
Internal Mets infield options: Luis Guillorme, Dilson Herrera, Ruben Tejada.

Newsday’s Tim Healey, who knows the Mets well, seemed to think that the quick announcement on the severity of the injury did not bode well for Cano, and he may well need an IL trip.
Cano has been a .245 hitter for the Mets this season with 10 home runs. He hasn’t really endeared himself to the Mets’ faithful with modest numbers and a penchant for not running out ground balls.
