Mets second baseman Dilson Herrera was scratched from Friday’s game against the Brewers after he was hit in the hand during fielding drills. It was initially deemed a cracked fingernail, but X-rays revealed a broken right middle finger, ESPN’s Adam Rubin reports, citing SNY.

Herrera made his season debut on May 1, lending a helping hand as the Mets have been hurt by injuries. He hit .235/.297/.353 with one home run and three RBI over 37 plate appearances. He was one of two players acquired by the Mets from the Pirates in August 2013 in the Marlon Byrd trade.
