Mets OF Juan Lagares left Thursday's game with an apparent injury to his left thumb.
Manager Terry Collins and head trainer Ray Ramirez checked on Lagares in the top of the fifth inning after he dove for a shallow hit.
He was left in the game, but later taken out in the bottom of the fifth inning as OF Curtis Granderson was put in his spot in the lineup.
Lagares has battled injuries on the same thumb in the past. Last season, he had surgery in August to repair a torn ligament in it that forced him to miss 47 games.
