Although the New York Mets are sporting a National League-best 16-8 record, they'd probably appreciate it if injuries to their pitching staff could stop piling up. The right-handed Trevor May is just the latest Mets pitcher to deal with an issue.

May had an MRI scan done on Tuesday after giving up two runs in an inning against the Atlanta Braves on the night before. Results have since shown that the veteran reliever has right triceps inflammation and has been placed on the 15-day injured list.

What's concerning about May's injury is that he's been dealing with a triceps issue since April 11. It's been off-and-on since then and even though inflammation is far from the worst-case scenario, the Mets are hoping that the extended absence will get their reliever back on track.

May's triceps issues have held him back from achieving much success this season. He already has an 8.64 ERA in 8.1 innings pitched across eight appearances. Opposing batters are batting .342 against him, which is the worst average since his rookie campaign in 2014.

The Mets have called up Adonis Medina to fill in for May in the bullpen. The 25-year-old righty has a 3.00 ERA and 1.167 WHIP in 6.0 IP across three games (one start) with Triple-A Syracuse this season.

Getting their pitching staff back to full strength is crucial if the Mets hope to win a championship this season. Their prospects of doing so look good, with FanDuel Sportsbook giving them the fourth-best odds (+900) to win the 2022 World Series.
