Injury Scout - Jim Wolf Leaves in Arizona

HP Umpire Jim Wolf left Friday's Mets-Diamondbacks game in Arizona after a deflected foul ball knocked off his mask.

With none out and two on in the top of the 2nd inning, Mets batter Todd Frazier fouled an 84.6-mph 0-1 slider from Diamondbacks pitcher Jon Duplantier off of catcher Alex Avila's mask, deflecting into the lower jaw portion of Wolf's traditional-style facemask.

1B Umpire Manny Gonzalez took over for Wolf behind home plate, with 2B Umpire Dan Iassogna sliding over to first base and 3B Umpire and Crew Chief Sam Holbrook rounding out the three-umpire crew.

Relevant Injury History: Wolf last left a game due to a head injury in September 2015, when he left the 9/11/15 Dodgers-Diamondbacks game, also in Arizona, after a foul ball deflected onto his facemask.
