The New York Mets' starting lineup is missing two more star players after placing outfielder Michael Conforto and infielder Jeff McNeil on the 10-day injured list, the team announced Monday.

Both players are dealing with hamstring injuries.

The pair are the latest Mets members to land on the injured list, joining 10 other key players.
