Manager Mickey Callaway said after the game that X-rays on Plawecki's hand were negative. They called up Nido, the team's top catching prospect, from Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday after placing d'Arnaud on the disabled list.
Because of the location of the tear, d'Arnaud said it was unlikely to heal without surgery.
Catcher Kevin Plawecki will be sidelined for three-to-four weeks with a broken left hand and went on the disabled list Friday as NY announced Travis d'Arnaud will have season-ending Tommy John surgery. While a post-game X-ray was negative, an MRI in NY on Thursday showed a hairline fracture and is expected to be out three to four weeks.
The Mets estimate a three- to four-week absence, but in any case, as injuries go, these seem tolerable.
D'Arnaud went on the disabled list Wednesday for the fifth consecutive year. D'Arnaud was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament earlier this week and is set to undergo Tommy John surgery next week, which will sidelined him for the remainder of the season.
The Mets also recalled outfielder Brandon Nimmo from Las Vegas on Friday and optioned reliever Jacob Rhame to Triple A.
