WATCH: New York Mets star Pete Alonso leaves game after being hit by pitch

Update: X-rays on Pete Alonso’s right hand have come back negative. No broken bones for now. He’ll undergo further evaluation here soon.

The New York Mets sure hope that first baseman Pete Alonso is not the latest player to hit the injured list for the first-place team.

While stopping short of providing an opinion on that, what we saw with Alonso in the second inning of their road game against the San Diego Padres Tuesday evening can’t be seen as a good sign.

Alonso was hit on the right hand on a pitch from Padres starter Yu Darvish. He immediately went down to the ground after being hit and had to leave the game. It’s brutal to look at.

To add insult to injury, fellow star Starling Marte exited a bit while later after being seen limping around Petco Park.

As for Pete Alonso, there’s been no further updates from the Mets when it comes to his injury. The hope here is that it’s not as bad as it looked.

Boasting a 38-19 record heading into Tuesday’s game, the Mets have dealt with a massive amount of injuries this season. Just look at who is currently on the injured list for the team right now.

  • James McCann, catcher
  • Travis Jankowski, outfielder
  • Max Scherzer, pitcher
  • Trevor May, pitcher
  • Tylor Megill, pitcher
  • Sean Reid-Foley, pitcher
  • Jacob deGrom, pitcher

It’s pretty amazing what first-year manager Buck Showalter has been able to do despite these injuries. And in reality, Alonso has been a big reason for that.

Alonso, 27, leads the league in both homers and RBI. He’s considered a top-end National League MVP candidate.

We’ll have further updates on his injury once they become available.
