J.D. Davis grimaces after getting hit by pitch vs. Phillies

Mets third baseman J.D. Davis was forced to leave Tuesday’s win over the Philadelphia Phillies after being hit by a pitch in his left hand.

The team later announced that X-rays on Davis’ hand were negative. Davis was diagnosed with a left hand contusion and is considered day-to-day.

In the top of the second inning, Chase Anderson ran a fastball high and inside to Davis, which hit him squarely in the left hand.

After being looked at by the Mets medical staff and with Luis Rojas looking on, the Mets pulled Davis from the game, as he was replaced in the lineup at third base by Luis Guillorme.

After the game, Rojas gave another update on his starting third baseman, saying the initial X-rays were good news, but that team doctors will perform follow-up X-rays on Wednesday.

“He had immediate X-rays. … he’s day-to-day right now. They came back negative,” Rojas said after the 8-4 win. “I think we’re gonna do another follow-up X-ray, because as you guys know with the hand, all of those bones there, they want to make sure that there’s not like a thin line missing or anything like that. … Good news in the immediate. We’ll reassess about it tomorrow.”
