Alonso appears to be fine after taking a fastball to his right hand

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

X-Rays on New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso’s right hand have come back negative, according to according to Matt Ehalt.

During the team’s 10-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday afternoon, Alonso was hit on the right hand while swinging during his eighth inning at-bat. He remained in the game to complete his turn and was replaced at first base by Dominic Smith in the bottom of the eighth. Prior to the results of the X-Ray being made public, manager Mickey Callaway noted that he was “not overly concerned” about the injury. Alonso described the injury as a “little boo-boo”.

Alonso has had an impressive impact in New York’s lineup. So far in his rookie season, the 24-year-old has hit .333/.425/.739 with seven home runs and 18 RBIs. In case Alonso may not be ready to play, it is assumed Dominic Smith would fill in for him.
