Michael Cuddyer receiving cortisone injection in ailing wrist
Michael Cuddyer has not played in the Mets three-game series against the Marlins this weekend thanks to tendinitis in his wrist, and will remain unavailable in their rubber match against Miami on Sunday.
But he could be unavailable for a little while longer.
Terry Collins said on Sunday morning Cuddyer is set to receive a cortisone injection in his ailing wrist on Sunday, and will be sidelined at least another 24-48 hours while the medicine is allowed to take.
Cuddyer has been on an oral anti-inflammatory regimen for the last several days, but on Friday Cuddyer said his wrist had worsened since originally injuring himself over a week ago.
It remains unclear if Cuddyer will be available in any capacity during the club’s series against the Nationals in Washington beginning on Monday afternoon.
