Jeff Francoeur is getting an MRI on his left thumb this morning, after injuring it while making a diving catch the half-inning before he hit into the unassisted triple play Sunday. The thumb swelled Sunday night.
Francoeur will be out of the lineup for Monday’s game and let’s hope that’s all he will miss.
Francoeur is hitting .305 with 6 homeruns and 24 RBIs with the Mets, leading all active players.
He will be another valuable loss if he ends up on the DL. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.
On a positive note, David Wright is taking grounders before Monday’s series finale against the Phillies as he continues to make progress after suffering a concussion.
Also, lefthander Pat Misch has been optioned to Buffalo after his lengthy outing Sunday, and fellow lefthander Ken Takahashi will join the Mets from Triple-A Buffalo.
