The New York Mets seed another injury on Thursday night. Outfielder Juan Lagares left the game with the Washington Nationals after suffering a fractured IP joint in his left thumb.

Lagares’ injury comes a day after Neil Walker went down with an injury, as he was running to first base. This news also came a short time after reported that pitcher Josh Smoker has “loose bodies” in his left elbow.

The injury to Lagares happened in the fifth inning. He had a trainer come out to check on him; however, he decided to stay in the game.

In his next at-bat, Curtis Granderson pitch-hit for him. He also replaced him in center field.

This is the same injury to the same thumb that Lagares injured last season. He’s expected to be headed to the disabled list.

The Mets are also expected to call up third baseman Matt Reynolds from Triple-A Las Vegas. In a 20-game stint with the team earlier this season, Reynolds had a .174 batting average with a home run.
