Mets' Michael Conforto Dislocates Shoulder on Swing and Miss
Thursday August 24th, 2017

Mets outfielder Michael Conforto suffered an unusual injury in Thursday’s game against the Diamondbacks. 

Conforto took a big hack at a fastball from Robbie Ray and immediately fell to the ground in pain, clutching his shoulder. The Mets confirmed shortly thereafter that Conforto had dislocated his shoulder. Although x-rays were negative, an MRI later revealed a tear in his shoulder.

With only six weeks left in the Mets’ season, it is almost certain Conforto will not play again this year. A shoulder dislocation typically keeps a batter out for four to six weeks.

Conforto had been one of the few bright spots for the Mets during a disappointing year. He is hitting .280 with 27 homers and 68 RBIs in 108 games.
