Matt Reynolds (R) Headshot

Reynolds was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas and is starting at third base for Thursday's game against the Yankees, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

Reynolds was summoned back to the big club to take the place of Jose Reyes, who was sent to the DL with a left oblique strain, and the team will waste no time inserting him into the starting lineup. The 26-year-old saw just 49 at-bats during his earlier stints with the Mets this season -- producing a .204/.264/.306 slash line with one homer -- but he should be in line for more consistent opportunities this time around with Reyes and Wilmer Flores (ribs) both dealing with injuries.

José Reyes (B) Headshot

Reyes was put on the 10-day DL prior to Thursday's game due to a left oblique strain, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

Reyes was scratched from the lineup before Wednesday's contest after coming up lame during batting practice with a sore left rib. Following further evaluation, the infielder was diagnosed with a strained oblique, and appears headed for a extended stay on the DL. There has yet to be word on the severity of Reyes's injury, but more information should become present within the next couple days. In his place, Matt Reynolds was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas and will earn a start at the hot corner for Thursday's series finale.

Tyler Austin (R) Headshot

Austin was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Austin has earned himself another chance with the big club after slashing .333/.333/.619 with two homers in five minor-league games since returning from the disabled list last week. It's unclear how much he'll play at this point, seeing as the Yankees already said they view him strictly as a first baseman, a position currently occupied by Chase Headley and Garrett Cooper while Greg Bird (ankle) is on the cusp of a return. He went 2-for-13 (.154) with one homer in four games for the Yankees earlier in the season.

Jon Lester (L) Headshot

Lester (undisclosed) left during the second inning of Thursday's game after giving up nine runs in the frame to the Reds, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Lester was shelled in the second inning, throwing a total of 40 pitches while recording just two outs and allowing seven earned runs by the time he exited the game with a trainer. This marked the third time that Lester has given up seven or more runs in two or fewer innings since joining the Cubs in 2015. Although it didn't appear as though the left-hander suffered any sort of injury, his status should be monitored moving forward, as manager Joe Maddon will likely have an update on his condition following the game. Mike Montgomery entered the game in his place.
