Mets right fielder Starling Marte day-to-day with neck strain

NEW YORK -- Mets right fielder Starling Marte left Sunday's 7-2 loss after the first inning with a strained neck sustained while stealing third base against the Miami Marlins.

Marte doubled with one out in the first and stole his fourth base of the season by sliding around the tag of Jean Segura, but he hit his neck against the third baseman's knee. Marte, 34, immediately called for time and was visited by Mets manager Buck Showalter and an athletic trainer.

Marte initially remained in the game but was replaced before the second inning, when Jeff McNeil moved from second base to right and Luis Guillorme entered at second.

The Mets listed Marte as day-to-day with the injury.
