FLUSHING, Queens — New York Mets right fielder Michael Conforto and second baseman Jeff McNeil have hamstring injuries that are likely to keep them out of action for another month.

Conforto and McNeil both got hurt on April 30.

Right-hander Carlos Carrasco, sidelined by a strained right hamstring, won’t be ready to pitch for the Mets until late June or early July.

New York has a major league-high 16 players on the injured list.

Right-hander Jordan Yamamoto, bothered by shoulder soreness, is likely to go on the IL on Tuesday.
