According to Dan Martin of the NY Post, Mets right handed reliever Ryota Igarashi will have an MRI exam on his left hamstring that he strained yesterday while fielding a bunt in the 8th inning last night.

“I felt a little bit of a stretch on my left hamstring,” Igarashi said through a translator. “I felt that nothing really popped up."

"As I continued pitching, I felt numbness in the region and when I got two outs, I knew it was time to call it quits.”

Igarashi managed to stay in the game for the next two batters, but despite that he may still land on the DL.
