R.A. Dickey left today’s start in the third inning after injuring his right heel covering first base.
Andy Martino of the New York Daily News writes that Dickey “fell onto the grass and ultimately needed help leaving the field.”
He’s scheduled to be examined back in New York tomorrow, but for now the Mets are calling the injury “pain in the bottom of the heel and the foot.”
Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports that Orioles third baseman Tim Beckham underwent core muscle surgery in Philadelphia on Thursday and is expected to miss the next six to seven weeks.
Beckham, 28, was originally diagnosed with a strained left groin. He sustained the injury during spring training and reaggravated it on Monday against the Indians.
Beckham was off to a slow start, batting .179/.247/.262 in 93 plate appearances. Danny Valencia and Jace Peterson should handle the hot corner while Beckham is out.
