Minors News: D’Arnaud Out Eight Weeks, Mateo Out Three Weeks, Mazzoni Will Rest Three Days
The plan is for him to remain in a boot and miss about eight weeks, but could be back sooner than that, Collins added.
As we previously first reported, D’Arnaud was hit on the foot by a foul ball during the sixth inning of the Las Vegas 51s 3-2 win over Sacramento on Wednesday night. He was lying on the ground face down and in obvious pain, but remained in the game only to be removed by manager Wally Backman in the next half inning.
He was flown to New York where he visited with team doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery who determined that the fracture could heal without surgery.
In other injury related news, Sandy Alderson told Adam Rubin that right-handed pitching prospect Luis Mateo, who was pulled from his Double-A debut three pitches into the fourth inning, will be sidelined for two weeks but has no serious elbow damage.
Mateo will take anti-inflammatory medication after being examined by team doctors in New York.
MMO beat writer John Delcos spoke with Terry Collins a short while ago about right-hander Cory Mazzoni, who also was examined and had an MRI yesterday. But Collins said there was nothing new to report to his knowledge.
Update: Sandy Alderson had relatively good news on prospect Cory Mazzoni. Elbow irritation. Rest 3 days. This according to Adam Rubin.
