Mets’ Carlos Carrasco to miss rest of 2023 season after breaking pinkie finger in weight-room accident

The New York Mets will be without one of their starting pitchers for the rest of the 2023 season.

Manager Buck Showalter told reporters Tuesday that Carlos Carrasco dropped a 50-pound dumbbell on his right pinkie finger and fractured it. The right-hander had a pin inserted into his finger and is expected to miss four to six weeks, which would be after the Mets season ends.


Carrasco has struggled all season, posting a 6.80 ERA over 20 starts, the highest in the Majors among pitchers with at least 90 innings.

The Mets recalled reliever Sam Coonrod from Triple-A Syracuse to replace Carrasco on the roster. Rookie José Butto will start Wednesday against the Washington Nationals in what used to be Carrasco’s spot in the rotation.
