A night after the Mets lost Jeff McNeil for the remainder of the season due to a broken wrist, it looked like the team could be in for a similar situation on Thursday.
Fortunately, though, it seems like that won't be the case.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, Robinson Cano was hit by a Jose Quijada fastball on his right hand. He was immediately pulled from the game.
The Mets did not give an update after the game, but according to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo, a team spokesman said that the ball hit Cano on the padding he wears over his hand and that the second baseman avoided any serious injury.
Cano was 0-2 at the plate on the night with a walk and the hit-by-pitch.
McNeil, meanwhile, announced earlier on Thursday that he will need surgery on his broken wrist, but that he should be "good to go" when Spring Training rolls around.
