Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer left Tuesday's game against the Phillies after being hit by a pitch on the hand.
X-rays on Cuddyer's left hand were negative and he was diagnosed with a contusion, the Mets announced.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis pinch ran for Cuddyer, replacing him in left field.
Cuddyer entered Tuesday hitting .276 with one home run and four RBI in eight games this season. The Mets signed the 36-year-old to a two-year, $21 million deal last November.
