The Mets announced on Tuesday evening that right fielder Michael Conforto had X-rays come back negative on his right wrist following the first game of the doubleheader against the Phillies.
Conforto was not in the starting lineup for game two against Aaron Nola and the Phillies.
Facing Phillies lefty Jose Alvarado in the bottom of the sixth inning of Tuesday’s first game, Conforto had a 100 mph fastball come up and in around his head, and the next pitch, also at 100 mph, came inside and hit Conforto on his right wrist.
Conforto went 0-for-2 with a walk, along with the HBP, in the first game, lowering his batting average on the season to .130 to go along with a .460 OPS.
