Mets lose two more to injuries
The New York Mets won their eighth game in a row Sunday, but lost two important players to injuries. Catcher Travis d’Arnaud broke his right hand when hit by a pitch, and reliever Jerry Blevins fractured his left forearm when he was hit by a line drive.
“It’s not a good day,” Manager Terry Collins said after a 7-6 win over the visiting Miami Marlins.
The Mets are already missing captain David Wright (hamstring) and right-hander Zack Wheeler (elbow surgery).
Cleveland Indians right-handed pitcher Carlos Carrasco had his next start pushed back to Tuesday. Carrasco left his previous start last Tuesday after being hit in the jaw by a line drive off the bat of Melky Cabrera of the Chicago White Sox. ... Washington Nationals center fielder Denard Span (stomach surgery) was activated from the 15-day disabled list.
