Mets Injury Report 7/11: Turner, Duda, Francisco, d'Arnaud, Byrdak, Feliciano, Atchison

Mets Injury Report:

Justin Turner (intercostal muscle strain) has started hitting off a tee and soft-tossing.

Lucas Duda (intercostal muscle strain) has started outdoors activities, but is not yet swinging a bat.

Frank Francisco (elbow) continues to have a nebulous issue in which doctors cannot detect any structural damage. "You're guess is as good as mine," Collins said about when Francisco might return to the Mets.

Travis d'Arnaud (broken foot) is not yet running full throttle. D'Arnaud has experienced some "discomfort" since beginning running on regular ground, but the Mets believe that is normal and not an indication of a setback.

Tim Byrdak, who is returning from shoulder surgery, has yet to throw back-to-back days with Class A St. Lucie. Collins said Byrdak and Pedro Feliciano both have the same issue: They do not sustain their velocity over multiple starts, which they will need to demonstrate before being a consideration for the major league club.

Scott Atchison will be activated from the disabled list and join the Mets when the team resumes play after the All-Star break next Friday against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field.

Atchison landed on the DL with a groin injury, which he suffered while throwing warm-up pitches in Atlanta on June 18. He had missed the previous month with an elbow bone-spur issue that was causing tingling and numbness in his fingers.

Atchison has made two rehab appearances in the past week with the Gulf Coast League Mets.

Mets Reliever Pedro Feliciano will be shut down for two weeks

Mets LHP Pedro Feliciano will be shut down for at least two weeks from baseball activity while he wears a heart monitor to investigate what has been labeled a potentially serious heart condition, general manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday morning.

Alderson said it's still unclear whether Feliciano has a "hole" in his heart. The GM added that doctors are still seeking to determine if that's the case.

Health concerns are the priority, but being idle for at least the next two weeks also is a blow to Feliciano joining Josh Edgin as the second left-hander in the bullpen. If Feliciano does not make the Opening Day roster, the Mets could carry only one left-hander in the bullpen. Otherwise, Scott Rice, Darin Gorski, Robert Carson and Aaron Laffey would be considerations.

"The doctors have asked that he be monitored over the next couple of weeks," Alderson said. "And so he will be hooked up to a telemeter and monitored over the next two weeks. Until that time, we won't really have a diagnosis. With respect to his comment that he has a hole in his heart, I don't think that's clear at this point. I think that what we need to do is wait over the next couple of weeks, until there's a final diagnosis. At this point we don't have a diagnosis, per se. And so it's a little preliminary.

"In the meantime, however, while he's beeing monitored, he will not be involved in any baseball activity."

Injury Report: Daniel Murphy headed to NY to see doctors

Daniel Murphy feels a "subtle tug" on his right side from an intercostal muscle, so the second baseman is headed to New York on Tuesday to be examined by team doctors. Sandy Alderson said it is "possible" Murphy will receive a cortisone injection during the trip to the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Terry Collins said Murphy is being cautious after David Wright and Scott Hairston experienced side-muscle issues last spring training. Hairston's injury lingered throughout spring training, but both made it back for the Opening Day roster in 2012.

"I think we want to be proactive and get me up to New York, especially with all the success they had with David and Scotty last year," Murphy said. "This seems to be the best course of action. The best-case scenario would be take a couple of days off and it'll be fine. But from everyone I talked to, the shot is not a bad thing. It's a good solution to the problem. But I can't say what's going to happen. I just know we'll go up there and get it checked out by the doctors. ...

"Unfortunately it's something that happened. But for it to happen early, I think we'll be able to get this out of the way. I don't foresee it being a problem after the next week to 10 days."
