Great news here from the official Twitter account of the New York Mets …

The 26-year-old catcher wound up missing close to two months with a fractured right pinkie finger.

He was off to a fantastic start before the injury, batting .317/.356/.537 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 11 games played. The day d’Arnaud was placed on the disabled list, the Mets were in first place in the National League East standings with a record of 11-3. They are still in first place but have gone 20-25 since.

HOUSTON — Houston slugger Yordan Alvarez left the Astros’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fifth inning with left ankle discomfort.

Alvarez, who is tied for second in the American League with 37 home runs, rolled his ankle running out of the box on a single in the first inning.

He looked to be in some pain as he jogged to first base and was checked on briefly by manager Dusty Baker and a trainer before remaining in the game. Serving as the designated hitter, he struck out in the third inning before being replaced by pinch-hitter David Hensley for his at-bat in the fifth.
