NEW YORK (AP) - Mets shortstop Jose Reyes has a strained left hamstring and his return to lineup will be determined later while infielder Daniel Murphy is likely done for the season because of a knee injury.

Both players were hurt during Sunday’s 6-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Reyes left in the second inning because of stiffness in his troublesome hamstring. The NL’s leading hitter was on the disabled list last month because of the same problem.

His status will be updated when New York plays Monday night against San Diego.

Murphy left in the seventh inning with a sprained ligament in his left knee. He was spiked by Jose Constanza on a clean but awkward play.

The Mets say Murphy probably won’t need surgery. The team plans to put him on the DL and add infielder Ruben Tejada.
