Cardinals C Willson Contreras (fractured arm) departs after being hit by bat

Willson Contreras

St. Louis Cardinals catcher Willson Contreras departed Tuesday night’s game against the Mets with a fractured left forearm after being struck by the bat of New York’s J.D. Martinez.

Martinez swung at a pitch in the second inning, and his bat struck Contreras above his glove hand on the arm. Contreras was in intense pain as he hobbled around before taking a seat in the dirt in front of the Cardinals’ dugout.

Martinez was awarded first base due to catcher’s interference.

Ivan Herrera replaced Contreras behind the plate.

Contreras, 31, doubled in the first inning and later scored while raising his batting average to .280 in 31 games. He has six homers and 12 RBIs this season.
