Curtis Granderson departs Monday's game with bruised rib cage/forearm/knee


SECOND UPDATE, 12:41 AM:

Per the Mets, all X-rays on Curtis Granderson (bruised rib cage, forearm, knee) came back negative.

Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters that Granderson is day-to-day.

With the Mets off Thursday and playing at night on Friday, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Mets gave Granderson Tuesday and Wednesday off in order to recover.

UPDATE, 12:11 AM:

According to the Mets, Curtis Granderson left the game due to a bruised rib cage, forearm, and knee bruises – not due to discomfort in his wrist.

He was being sent for X-rays.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE:

Curtis Granderson, who slammed his wrist into the right field wall in the first inning on an attempted catch, left Monday night’s game against Arizona after the top of the sixth inning.

He was replaced in right field by Andrew Brown.

It wasn’t immediately confirmed if Granderson left the game due to discomfort in the wrist, but it’s a fair assumption to make.

Granderson went 1 for 3 with an RBI before being removed from the game.

Thoughts:

Since it hasn’t yet been confirmed that Granderson left the game due to discomfort in his wrist, it’s hard to speculate on what the ramifications of his removal from the game may be.

It should be noted again, though, that Granderson was able to play the majority of the game after his apparent injury.
