Two Mets players, catcher Travis d’Arnaud and left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins will be off the field for a significant amount of time after being injured in last Sunday’s game against the Miami Marlins.
While the Mets won the game, improving their record to 10-3, Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud will be in a splint for three weeks as a result of a fractured metacarpal bone in his right pinkie finger.
D’Arnaud’s injury occurred when he was struck by a wild pitch by Marlins’ pitcher A.J. Ramos.
Also injured during the game was relief pitcher Jerry Blevins, who was hit by a comebacker (a pitch that is hit straight back at the pitcher) from Dee Gordon.
Blevins suffered a distal radius fracture in his left arm, and will be wearing a splint for at least six weeks. He is expected to be out of play for about two months.
D’Arnaud was hitting 13-for-41 with two homers this season while Blevins had retired all 15 batters he had faced so far.
