Hand fracture, out six weeks


- Advertisment -

NEW YORK — Prior to Friday night’s game at Citi Field against the Seattle Mariners, the Mets were dealt the first significant blow to the regular lineup of position players.

Catcher James McCann will be out of the lineup for approximately six weeks due to a fractured left hand, the team announced Friday. Patrick Mazieka has been called up to replace McCann on the active roster.

McCann is formally being placed on the 10-day injured list but will undergo surgery to fix the fracture.

McCann had been out of the lineup for the past few days with what the team was calling “left wrist soreness”, but the team elected for an X-ray this morning that revealed a fracture.

“We did it as a precaution, because this has happened before,” manager Buck Showalter said Friday afternoon. “But something came back.”

McCann’s injury is a fracture of the hamate bone in his left hand, which is his catching hand. The hamate bone sits above the wrist on the pinky side of the hand and is one of eight bones in the hand that forms the wrist joint. A fracture of that bone is often attributed to repeated impact.
