Mets catcher Omar Narváez expected to miss at least two months with calf injury

The New York Met’s aren’t even taking the field Thursday and still received terrible news.

Catcher Omar Narváez, who left Wednesday’s game, suffered a medium to a high-grade strain of his left calf and will be placed on the Injured List. He is expected to miss 8-9 weeks, per the team.

In a corresponding move, the Mets will call up No. 1 prospect Francisco Álvarez from Triple-A Syracuse.

New York signed Narváez to a one-year contract in the offseason. The 31-year-old was hitting .286/.353/.286 in five games with the Mets this season.

The Mets will return to action on Friday when they open a three-game series with the Miami Marlins at Citi Field.
