Report: Mets' David Wright Has Broken Pinkie Finger

New York Mets third baseman David Wright has a fracture at the middle joint of his right pinkie, according to ESPN.

Wright was originally scratched from the lineup card for tonight's game against the Washington Nationals because of a bruised pinkie -- he told reporters that he injured it diving back into first base on a pickoff attempt last night. Later, however, an X-ray revealed that the finger was not bruised, but broken.

Wright will not require surgery but will have to wear a splint, the team announced. Wright has been cleared to return to baseball activities "as soon as he can tolerate them."

"It would be very difficult to go out there and perform at even a decent level," Wright said. "Anybody else they put out there today would be able to perform a lot better than I could today. When I gripped the bat, I just knew it was going to be difficult. We've tried so many different things today, from taping it to putting pads on it, to trying to rig the bat where there was some extra padding where the hand would be. It wasn't cooperating."
