Mets first baseman Lucas Duda is on the mend after suffering a stress fracture in his back in May. Unfortunately, he suffered a setback in his recovery and will be shut down for at least 30 days,’s Anthony DiComo reports.

Considering that, after resting for a month, Duda will need time to get back up to baseball speed with some rehab games. That would run close to the end of the season. In DiComo’s words, this set back “all but ices” Duda’s season.

Duda still holds a .231/.297/.431 triple-slash line with seven home runs and 19 RBI in 145 plate appearances on the season. The Mets purchased James Loney from the Padres to fill the gap at first base shortly after Duda’s injury. Loney has put up a .778 OPS with solid defense in 54 games with the Mets this year.
