UPDATE: Conforto has a dislocated shoulder. That could be less serious than it appeared or it could be really serious depending on whether or not there was additional damage. There will likely be a further update and, in all likelihood, an MRI in Conforto’s future.

2:11 PM: Mets outfielder Michael Conforto left this afternoon’s game against the Diamondbacks with an apparent left shoulder injury.

Conforto fell to the ground after a hard swing and miss in the bottom of the fifth inning and he was clutching his left shoulder as he walked off the field. There should be an update later this afternoon, but it’s hard to see how it’ll be anything other than bad news.
