New York Mets right-hander Dwight Gooden had to leav yesterday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals when he was struck by Ozzie Smith's liner, but X-rays were negative.
The Mets said they did not expect Gooden (5-4) to miss his next start.
After he was hit on the wrist, Gooden was in some pain but was able to make a fist and move his fingers.
"I had broken the same wrist when I was playing football in high school," said Gooden.
"The pain came right away and I thought it was broken again. I didn't know what to expect until I got to the hospital."
