Juan Uribe will have an MRI on a chest contusion

Juan Uribe was hurt in last night’s Yankees-Mets game when hit the ground hard while diving to stop a Brett Gardner ground ball in the third inning. He remained in the game for a while, but left two innings later with what the Mets described as a chest contusion.

X-rays were negative but he’s sore and he’ll have an MRI exam some time today.

Since coming over to the Mets from the Braves — and previously the Dodgers — Uribe has hit .214/.298/.429 in 141 plate appearances, playing some second base but mostly third.
