Mets move on from 'bump in the road,' host 2-game set vs. Astros

Max Scherzer's return is still a few days away, but the New York Mets could have Jeff McNeil back in the lineup when they begin a brief two-game set against the visiting Houston Astros on Tuesday.

McNeil is expected back after missing the past five games due to right hamstring tightness, while Scherzer (oblique strain) will make his second rehab start for Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday. He could rejoin New York's rotation this weekend.

New York returns home following a 2-3 road trip against Houston and the Miami Marlins. The Mets went 1-for-13 with runners in scoring position in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Marlins, who won on Nick Fortes' ninth-inning homer against Adam Ottavino.
