UPDATE: Mets Starter Out for Several Weeks

The MRI did not bring back positive results. 

New York Mets starter Carlos Carrasco is headed to the injured list with a low-grade left oblique strain. 

This injury typically warrants a 3-4 week recovery timeline. 

The good news in this is that Carrasco has avoided a more serious oblique injury. 

The thirty-five-year-old was forced to leave Monday's start against the Atlanta Braves after just 51 pitches across two innings due to the injury. He underwent an MRI Tuesday morning which revealed the strain.

Carrasco has compiled a 3.92 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 124 strikeouts across 126 innings this season. He's also recorded 13 wins. 
He should be ready to return to the Mets' rotation at some point in September.
