Mets star Pete Alonso to get more testing on injured wrist - ESPN
ATLANTA -- New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso returned to New York for further testing on Thursday after being hit on his left wrist by a pitch and leaving Wednesday night's game against the Atlanta Braves.
Manager Buck Showalter said Alonso had a CT scan in Atlanta Thursday morning. The slugger was scheduled for an MRI later Thursday in New York.
Asked why the additional testing was taking place in New York, Showalter said, "I think we'd rather have our people look at it."
Alonso, who leads the majors with 22 homers, was hit by a 96 mph fastball from Charlie Morton in the first inning of Atlanta's 7-5 win on Wednesday night.
The Mets said Wednesday night Alonso had a contusion and X-rays revealed no broken bones. More tests were scheduled even before Showalter said Alonso had more soreness in the wrist on Thursday morning.
