Mets’ infielder Jed Lowrie to have MRI of left knee

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — The New York Mets uttered that dreaded three-letter acronym for the first time in spring training, and it involved Jed Lowrie: MRI.

Starting a $20 million, two-year contract, the infielder noticed the back of his left knee started to hurt last weekend after he was running, an issue he never felt before. He will go for a scan on Thursday.

“It’s just one of those things we’ve got to get checked out,” the 34-year-old said Wednesday. “It started when I starting ramping things up and doing top-end speed stuff and batting practice. “I just kind of felt something in the back side of my knee.”

So, how long before the amputation takes place?

Geez, give the leeches and the iron lung a chance to work first.

Oh, so that's where McNeil's playing time is going to come from.
