Mets place Francisco Lindor on injured list with right oblique strain

Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor was placed on the 10-day injured list on Saturday with a right oblique strain. Infielder Travis Blakenhorn was called up in a corresponding move.

Lindor exited New York’s loss to the Pirates on Friday night with what the Mets called right side soreness. The oblique strain is Lindor’s first significant injury since he was traded to the Mets and signed a $341 million, 10-year contract extension over the offseason.

Lindor’s injury comes as the Mets finally got all of their starting position players healthy on Friday with J.D. Davis’ activation off the injured list.
