X-rays have revealed that Jerry Blevins has a fractured left forearm.
Blevins suffered the injury when he was hit by a comebacker Sunday. It's a big blow to the Mets' bullpen that already lost lefty Josh Edgin for the season. A timetable for the reliever isn't known at this point, but obviously he's looking at an extended absence. Blevins is unscored upon in seven appearances this season.
Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) remains without a timetable to throw off a mound.
Ryu has been playing catch from 90 feet for about two weeks and feels fine, but he's not sure when the next step will occur. "I don't know when I'll be able to throw a bullpen. I've just been throwing outside on the field," Ryu said. "So far it's just making sure I have no pain. At this condition I probably could [throw a bullpen session] but I haven't thrown long toss yet." Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said last week that he's still hoping to get Ryu back at some point in may, but that appears to be a very loose timetable.
Travis d'Arnaud left Sunday's game against the Marlins after being hit on the right hand/wrist by a pitch.
D'Arnaud got plunked in the seventh inning by an A.J. Ramos offering on a half-swing. The young catcher is undoubtedly headed for X-rays to determine the extent of the damage. Losing d'Arnaud, who is off to a .317/.356/.537 start at the plate, would be a big blow for the Mets.
Red Sox catching prospect Blake Swihart delivered four hits for Triple-A Pawtucket Saturday in a win over Rochester.
The Red Sox chose to have Swihart start the year in Triple-A despite an obvious need at catcher. If Swihart keeps hitting like this, he won't be down for long. The 23-year-old has a hit in every game this season and is now batting .406 with nine RBI. There's a reason the Red Sox rebuffed the Phillies when they asked for Swihart in talk for Cole Hamels.
Jerry Blevins had to exit Sunday's game against the Marlins after being hit on the left wrist by a comebacker.
Blevins was able to recover and make the play, but he then walked off the field. It's possible the reliever will need X-rays, but the Mets should provide an update on his status shortly.
X-rays confirmed that Devon Travis did not suffer a left rib fracture.
Travis had to leave Sunday's game following a hit by pitch, but he managed to escape with just a bruise. The Blue Jays are considering the second baseman day-to-day.
Carl Crawford (illness) might not be available off the bench Sunday.
In fact, he might not come to the ballpark at all. Crawford is under the weather and was given IV fluids on Saturday. The Dodgers are off Monday, so they seem likely to just tell the outfielder to get some extra rest before joining them for their road trip beginning Tuesday.
Rockies placed RHP John Axford on the restricted list.
It's a paper move, as Axford had already been on the family medical emergency list after his son, Jameson, was bitten twice by a rattlesnake. The reliever is eligible to be activated at any time, though it's unclear when it will happen.
