Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Shifts to 60-day IL
Mauricio (knee) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
The 21-year-old underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee in early January, so his move to the 60-day IL was an eventuality. He's facing a projected 6-to-8-month recovery, so a return for September is likely the best-case scenario for Mauricio, and there's a real possibility he sits out the entirety of 2024....

Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Undergoes ACL surgery
Mauricio underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn ACL in his right knee.
Mauricio suffered the injury last month while playing in the Dominican Winter League. Per the Mets, a typical timeline for a return to game action from this procedure is 8-to-12 months, which would indicate the young infielder could be out until September even in a best-case scenario. Mauricio had been slated to compete for the third base job with the Mets, but the bulk of those duties now figure to fall to Brett Baty.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Surgery imminent
Mauricio is slated to undergo surgery to repair a torn right ACL shortly after New Year's Day, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Mauricio suffered the injury Dec. 10 while playing winter ball in the Dominican Republic. The Mets have not revealed a potential timetable for the young infielder's return to action, but it seems likely that he'll be out until sometime after the All-Star break. With Mauricio sidelined, Brett Baty is the favorite to see the lion's share of starts at third base for the Mets.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Undergoing tests for knee injury
Mauricio is headed back to the United States to undergo testing for a knee injury he suffered Sunday while playing in the Dominican Winter League, Michael Mayer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.
Playing for Tigres del Licey, Mauricio was hurt when he stopped abruptly in between first and second base as he halted a stolen-base attempt. He first underwent testing in the Dominican Republic -- the results of which are unclear -- and will now travel to New York to be looked at by Mets doctors. If healthy, Mauricio is slated to compete in spring training for the Mets' third-base job.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Diagnosed with torn ACL
Mauricio has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his knee and will require surgery, Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports.
Mauricio suffered the injury on Sunday during Dominican Winter League play while running the bases. A timetable for the youngster's return is not yet clear but should be available following the operation. At the very least, he is certainly not going to be ready in time for Opening Day. Mauricio had been set to compete with Brett Baty for the Mets' third base job, which means Baty is now the heavy favorite to man the hot corner in the opener, with Mark Vientos also in the mix....

Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Injured during winter ball
Mauricio suffered an apparent leg injury Sunday while playing in the Domincan Winter League, Michael Mayer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.
Mauricio came up lame while making an abrupt stop as he halted a stolen-base attempt. He was down for a bit before eventually walking off the field gingerly with the training staff. There are no more specifics at this point regarding the exact nature of the injury or how severe it might be, but Mauricio's winter ball stint might be over. The 22-year-old is slated to compete for the Mets' third base job during spring training.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Team not expected to add 3B help
Mets president of baseball operations David Stearns indicated Monday that he expects the team's starting third baseman to come out of the group of Mauricio, Brett Baty and Mark Vientos, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
Stearns also noted that he's not viewing any of the trio of players as a frontrunner for the gig, and it's possible no winner will be declared by Opening Day. The Mets have said Jeff McNeil will be confined mostly to second base, which would indicate that if Mauricio receives everyday at-bats then it would likely come at the hot corner. It's certainly a position battle to keep a close eye on during spring training.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ronny Mauricio: To see action at 3B in winter ball
Mets president of baseball operations David Stearns said Wednesday that Mauricio will play some third base in the Dominican Winter League, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Mauricio made his major-league debut at second base this past season and that is probably going to be his long-term position in Queens, but the Mets want him to continue building his defensive versatility as he participates in winter ball for the third year in a row. The talented young infielder could maybe step in at the hot corner next season if Brett Baty is unable to take a significant step forward. Mark Vientos is also an option at third, though he profiles as more of a first baseman or DH moving forward.... See More ... See Less

Mauricio had one of the Mets' two hits in the game. He slashed .248/.296/.347 with two home runs, seven steals, nine RBI and 11 runs scored across his first 26 major-league games.

This is the first major-league start at third base for the rookie, and he could see more action there if Brett Baty's groin injury lingers.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Out again with illness
Mauricio (illness) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.
