David Wright scratched from lineup with finger injury, going for X-rays

David Wright was a late scratch from the Mets’ lineup and will undergo X-rays on a right pinkie finger injury suffered yesterday.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Wright suffered the injury diving back into first base after hitting a single and “is hoping it’s not broken, but he’s unsure.”

Ronny Cedeno is filling at third base, batting second in the revamped lineup.

And now Mets fans can hold their breath that the team’s surprisingly good start won’t immediately be ruined by an injury.
