Nobody wants to miss a day of work and get the Wally Pipp treatment. This may be what happens with the New York Mets roster. In the absence of outfielder Albert Almora, several players have been given their chance to play regularly. The latest seeing a lot of action is journeyman Billy McKinney.

McKinney came to the Mets in a trade with the Milwaukee Brewers last month to help stop the bleeding of the outfield.
