Injury Update: Jean Segura will avoid injury list after getting hit by a pitch against Mets
According to reports, Jean Segura couldn’t even feel his left hand after being hit by a pitch from Mets reliever Reid-Foley during yesterday’s game.
Jean Segura left the game after getting pegged in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Phillies bats were silent for the majority of the game and when they did finally wake up, it was too little, too late, losing 9-6 loss to the New York Mets and dropping 2-of-3 in the series.
Luckily for Segura and the Phillies, it doesn’t seem to be that serious. According to Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Segura regained strength as the day went on and believes he may be able to play tonight in Miami.
Losing Segura would have been rough for the Phillies. In five games this season, he’s slashing .353/.421/.765 with a 1.186 OPS. Segura has two home runs and six hits in 17 at-bats.
Everyone was getting hit by pitches throughout the Mets-Phillies series, but mainly Mets players. Zack Wheeler hit two Mets on Tuesday. Nola hit two more on Wednesday, and reliever Damon Jones hit Dom Smith. Throughout the first two series, the Mets have been 10 times already which is the most in the majors.
No one really seemed to think that any of the hit batters was intentional and I would have to agree.
The Phillies now sit at a very familiar .500 heading into a seven game road trip to Miami and Colorado.
Kyle Gibson will be on the mound for The Phillies, hoping to build off an impressive season debut in which he threw seven innings of shutout baseball while striking out 10.
Gibson will face Sandy Alcantara, who holds a 5-4 record with an ERA of 3.13 and 56 strikeouts over 10 appearances against the Phillies in his career.
First pitch is at 6:45pm.
