New York Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki on DL with broken hand


NEW YORK — Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki has a broken left hand and is following Travis d’Arnaud to the disabled list.

Plawecki was hit by a pitch from the Marlins’ Tayron Guerrero at Miami in the eighth inning Wednesday night. While a postgame X-ray was negative, an MRI in New York on Thursday showed a hairline fracture.

New York said before Friday’s game against Milwaukee that Plawecki was being put on the DL, retroactive to Thursday. Plawecki will not need surgery.

D’Arnaud went on the disabled list Wednesday for the fifth consecutive year. He has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, and surgery is possible.

Catcher Tomas Nido was recalled from Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday, and another catcher is likely to be brought up Friday.
