Unfortunate timing. That’s the best and most appropriate way to describe the latest injury in the New York Mets‘ roster. Michael Conforto looks set to open the season on the injured list after being diagnosed with a right oblique strain.
Oblique injuries are very tricky and should be managed with caution, especially by baseball players. They have a rather high re-aggravation rate, and the best thing is giving it plenty of time and letting it heal naturally.
Conforto underwent an MRI back in Florida after getting injured last weekend while making a catch in the outfield.
