CHICAGO — Amed Rosario and Travis d’Arnaud were taken out of the Mets game in the middle of the fifth inning Thursday night. The shortstop seemed to pull up lame coming out of the box after a ground ball to short to end the top of the fifth. Manager Terry Collins and a trainer walked him off the field. The team said he was diagnosed with a tight right hip flexor.
D’Arnaud, who had slid awkwardly on the infield in the second inning, was removed with a twisted right knee. He remained in the game, however, until grounding into a double play in the fifth. D’Arnaud missed 17 games with a wrist injury earlier this year and has always battled injuries throughout his career.
The shortstop missed several games last week with a bruised right index finger.
Rosario, 21, is the Mets top young player and was expected to play a lot down the stretch to give him experience heading into 2018.
