Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo left Tuesday's game in the seventh inning after he was hit by a pitch on the left hand.
X-rays came back negative but he is expected to be re-evaluated again on Wednesday.
The pitch was initially called a foul ball but the outfielder was visibly in pain so manager Mickey Callaway challenged the call and was successful -- leading to Nimmo being awarded first base and the runner scoring from third as the Mets extended their lead to 6-2.
Nimmo stayed in the game to take his base, but as he was being evaluated by the trainer and Callaway, the Mets manager turned back toward the dugout and grimaced.

He was taken out of the game in the bottom half of the inning and was replaced by Keon Broxton.
Nimmo, who led the majors with 22 hit by pitches last season, missed some time last year after being hit in the pinkie finger but said after the game on Tuesday he is more optimistic about this injury.
