The New York Mets went from an impending outfield surplus to an outfield shortage in the span of a few innings.

Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares departed Monday's 7-3 win against the Arizona Diamondbacks in consecutive innings with injuries.

Lagares suffered a pulled right hamstring running to first base on a fielder's choice grounder in the seventh inning and is a disabled list candidate.

Granderson departed an inning earlier with bruises to his left forearm, rib cage and knee. X-rays of all three body parts were negative, although Granderson struggled to put on his shoes after the game.

Manager Terry Collins said the Mets would bring a Triple-A Las Vegas player to Phoenix, to be activated assuming Lagares lands on the DL after he is re-evaluated Tuesday. That is expected to be outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who is hitting .310 with two homers and eight RBIs in 42 at-bats in the Pacific Coast League.

Collins had been discussing pregame how to distribute playing time among his surplus outfielders once Chris Young (quadriceps) returns from the DL when he is eligible on Friday. Young has reached base in nine of 10 plate appearances in his first two games of a rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Granderson had crashed into the outfield wall attempting to catch an RBI double off the bat of Miguel Montero in the first inning Monday. He remained in the game at that point after a visit from trainer Ray Ramirez, but departed later with the encouragement of the training staff, which was concerned about worsening his rib cage injury by continuing to swing.

"I hit the wall with my forearm, which then lodged my elbow into my chest area. And then running full stride my left knee also hit," Granderson said. "As the game just kept going on, things just started to tighten up a little bit. The great thing is all the X-rays are negative. We just wanted to be on the safe side and check everything, which we were able to do at the ballpark."
