Lucas Duda hospitalized, stomach ailment
By Danny Knobler
NEW YORK -- New York Mets first baseman Lucas Duda had to be hospitalized Friday, because of a stomach ailment that caused him to be dehydrated.
"He's getting an IV, because he couldn't keep any fluids down," Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday afternoon.
Collins wasn't sure how long Duda would remain at the hospital, and left open the possibility that Duda could rejoin the Mets and even be available to pinch-hit in Friday night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Josh Satin will start at first base in Duda's place.
