New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Céspedes said following Sunday’s game that he believes he’ll miss the next three games. He injured his thumb while sliding head-first into third base against the San Diego Padres.

The Mets won the contest 14-2. He believes he knows how to deal with the injury after having a similar injury in the past.

New York will begin a six-game home streak on Tuesday. They will begin with a three-game set against the Atlanta Braves, before hosting the Colorado Rockies this Friday through Sunday.

X-Rays on his thumb injury came back negative. Yet, he is expected to go through an MRI on Monday to make sure there is not severe damage to his thumb.

The 32-year-old slugger went 2-for-2 against the Padres on Sunday. He also had a double, two runs and two stolen bases.

On the season, he has .233 batting average through 26 games. He has six home runs and 25 RBIs, along with 13 runs, with 24 hits in 103 at-bats.

With Céspedes sidelined — he says, the team has not confirmed yet — Michael Conforto, Juan Lagares, or Brandon Nimmo will have to fill in.

If Céspedes does miss a game during the upcoming home swing, it’ll be the first-time that he misses a game this season. He has played in every game over the past month.
