ATLANTA — New York Mets shortstop Amed Rosario left Monday night’s game against the Atlanta Braves with an injury in the third inning.

Rosario grounded out to end the top half of the third, but did not run hard down the line. He left the field with a trainer and was replaced at shortstop by Andres Gimenez, who moved over from third base. Luis Guillorme took over at third.

The nature of Rosario’s the injury wasn’t immediately known

Rosario was hurt not long after Braves ace Mike Soroka collapsed to the infield grass with a right leg injury. He couldn’t put any weight on the leg and had to be helped off the field by a trainer and manager Brian Snitker.

Just before the first pitch, New York’s Jeff McNeil was scratched from lineup after experiencing lower back tightness during his pregame routine in the batting cage. McNeil was set to make his first start of the season in left field.
