The New York Mets' bullpen took a major hit when Trevor May had to be placed on the injured list Tuesday due to right triceps inflammation. His status moving forward continues to worsen as a stress reaction revealed to be on the lower portion of his humerus will shut him down for at least four weeks.

A bit of a longer timeline was expected to be announced, but a month on the sidelines is not what Mets fans wanted to hear. It's worth noting that May has been dealing with triceps issues on-and-off since the beginning of April. It has held him back in his efforts to put together clean innings of work.

May owns a 8.64 ERA across 8 appearances this season and isn't showcasing an ability to get opposing batters to miss on their swings. The 32-year-old has only accumulated 5 strikeouts in 8.1 innings pitched and the opposition has logged a .342 batting average against him so far.

The time away will hopefully allow May to get back to full strength and capable of serving as a reliable setup man for manager Buck Showalter. The Mets own a record of 18-8 through the first 26 games of the season and have posted a bullpen ERA of 3.48 (No. 8 in National League).

Oddsmakers see the Mets' early season success continuing throughout the summer and give them the fourth-best odds to win the World Series at +900, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. They're also a heavy favorite to take home the NL East divisional crown with odds set at -160.
