Team doctors have examined Mateo and it looks like he’s definitely heading for an MRI in the morning.
Well, let’s all hope for the best…

One of the top Mets pitching prospects, Luis Mateo, has left his Double-A debut in the fourth inning of tonight’s game for the B-Mets. The trainer and head coach Pedro Lopez visited Mateo the mound and escorted him off the field. According to a tweet by Lynn Worthy, they appeared to be inspecting his hand.
Mateo was called up from St. Lucie to replace Cory Mazzoni, who was placed on the disabled list with “Tennis Elbow,” earlier today.
Before leaving the game, Mateo had given up four runs on six hits, one of which was a two run home run.
Once we get word on Mateo we will pass it along. Check back for updates.
