The New York Mets will be a bit short handed on their bench tonight. The team was already expected to be without Lucas Duda, who is out for a few days with a hyperextended left elbow, but now they will also be without Wilmer Flores. Flores is unavailable tonight after spending last night in the hospital with a knee infection, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports. The infection could keep Flores sidelined for a few days, leaving the Mets thin on the infield. The Mets recalled catcher Kevin Plawecki from Triple-A Las Vegas to get another body on the bench, which also gives them insurance in case Travis d'Arnaud's hand contusion lingers. d'Arnaud is available to pinch hit tonight, but the Mets will be short on infielders with both Duda and Flores out. Mets' manager Terry Collins told reporters prior to today's game that Juan Lagares will be the team's emergency infielder tonight.
