Mets pitcher out 3-4 weeks

The Mets are going to be without another player for up to a month.

Starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco will likely be out 3-4 weeks with a low-grade left oblique strain, the Mets said Tuesday.

Carrasco left Monday’s loss to the Braves after returning to pitch following a 55-minute rain delay, lasting only two innings. Carrasco, 35, said he only began feeling discomfort after his final pitch.

David Peterson will likely take Carrasco’s spot in the rotation.

Carrasco has a vesting option worth $14 million for the 2023 season if he reaches 170 innings pitched. He currently has 126 1/3 innings pitched this year.

The injury comes a day after the Mets lost Luis Guillorme for 4-6 weeks with a “moderate” left groin strain.
