Vargas Hit With Comebacker, X-Rays Negative On Wrist

New York Mets starter Jason Vargas was pitching in a minor league game on Friday afternoon against Washington Nationals’ farmhands when he was hit by a line drive as I reported on Twitter.

The comebacker got him on the wrist of his glove hand. He was on the ground for a few minutes before leaving with the trainers. However, the x-rays were negative and he’s considered day-to-day per Mike Puma of the New York Post.

Vargas has pitched to a 4.15 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 8.2 Grapefruit League innings. The left-hander has allowed 11 hits, walked four and struck out nine in that span.

The Mets signed the veteran to a two-year deal with a third-year option this offseason to give them depth in the starting rotation.
