Yoenis Cespedes is set to undergo an MRI on his hamstring Friday after leaving Thursday’s game against the Phillies with a cramp.

The Mets outfielder left the game in the top of the sixth after looking like he was having issues with his leg in the bottom of the 5th.

According to the New York Post’s Mike Puma, Cespedes says a doctor told him he would be out at least a few days.

The timing of the injury means Cespedes could miss the team’s first series of the season against the NL East rival Nationals. The Mets will be short-handed for the series in general.

Cespedes was 1-for-2 with a walk prior to leaving the 6-4 loss. He’s hitting .263 with six home runs this season.
