Mets injuries: Double-dose of good news

Things are starting to look up for the New York Mets and their walking wounded.

Per USA Today’s Bob Nightengale: “Good news for the #Mets

1B Pete Alonso did not suffer a fracture, his MRI reveals, after being hit in the hand last night. He’s day-to-day.”

Alonso left Tuesday’s 7-0 loss to the San Deigo Padres.

after getting hit by a pitch and falling awkwardly leading off the second inning.

The pitch from Yu Darvish hit Alonso on the right hand.

Alonso appeared to swing, but the Mets challenged and it

was ruled a hit by pitch and Alonso was awarded first base.

He had headed to the clubhouse by then and was replaced by pinch-runner J.D. Davis.
