The New York Mets would like to hit the reset button on the month of August. New York is just 1-5 to start the month and has lost its slim division lead in the NL East. Now, trailing the Philadelphia Phillies by 0.5 games, the Mets got some more concerning news with Francisco Lindor's latest injury update.

Lindor has been sidelined since the middle of July with a strained oblique. While the dynamic shortstop did say he rehab has been going well, he's unsure of his timeline to get back to full strength.

“I would love to say, I’ll be back at home. I would love to say, I’ll be playing rehab [games] next week. I don’t know.”

This isn't exactly the boost of confidence that New York fans were hopeful for. The four-time All-Star has admittedly struggled his first season in Queens. Lindor is slashing just .228/.326/.376 with 11 home runs and 36 RBIs across 87 games.

Considering New York's offense ranks second-to-last with 413 runs scored, the absence of one of their most talented bats has been sorely missed. However, New York still has a fighting chance to take home the division crown. Currently, the Mets own the best odds (+155) to win the NL East on FanDuel Sportsbook.
