On Saturday, Pete Alonso took a pitch in the hand, but luckily it doesn't look to be anything concerning for the Mets.
Manager Mickey Callaway told SNY's Steve Gelbs after the loss to the Cardinals that Alonso was headed for X-Rays following the injury.
"He's getting X-Rays as we speak," he said. "Not overly concerned. He seems like he's doing OK."
Alonso confirmed the X-Rays were "absolutely negative" during his media appearance after the game, and he knew the results would come out that way.
"I knew I'd be OK, but I'm sure some people know I've had some issues in the past," Alonso said. "I mean, the last three weeks of my college career I played with a broken hand and had some issues in the minor leagues getting hit by pitches in the hand. At first, they feel fine. Then it's like you find out its broken.
"But X-Rays don't like so I'm really thankful it caught me in a perfect spot, so to speak, and I'm all good."
In typical Alonso fashion, he joked around about what he said when he got hit, saying "I'd probably get bleeped out." But he's just glad he saw the results he wanted from the tests.
The incident occurred when Alonso check swung during his fourth at-bat in the top of the eighth. The ball first hit the knob of his bat, and proceeded to run into his hand.
Alonso would finish the at-bat, but Dom Smith took over for him in the bottom of the inning at first base. The rookie sensation went 0-for-4 on the day.
