NEW YORK (AP) - Speedy center fielder Billy Hamilton was scratched from the Cincinnati Reds6-3 loss Saturday because of a jammed left middle finger.
Hamilton was set to bat leadoff Saturday against the New York Mets, was replaced atop the Reds' order by Roger Bernadina. The struggling rookie was injured when he was caught trying to steal second base as a pinch runner in the eighth inning of Friday night's 4-3 loss.
Manager Bryan Price says Hamilton is day to day.
Also, Price says closer Aroldis Chapman has started light workouts, none baseball related. Chapman, who had surgery March 20 to repair a broken bone above his left eye after being hit by a line drive, could return in May.
Met pinch-hitter Ike Davis hit a walkoff grand slam one batter after manager Terry Collins won his first replay challenge in the ninth inning, and the Mets rallied to beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-3 Saturday.
