NEW YORK -- Frank Francisco has a swollen right hand on the pinkie side after getting struck with a line drive off the bat of Logan Morrison in the eighth inning in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader.

Francisco received X-rays. The Mets subsequently announced the injury as a bruise, not a fracture.

"That's what I thought -- it was broke for sure," said a relieved Francisco.

"It swelled up pretty fast and pretty big," Collins said.
