X-rays on the wrist were negative per The Philadelphia Daily News’ Ryan Lawrence, who also tweeted that Franco was diagnosed with a left wrist contusion.
Franco almost immediately dropped to the ground behind home pate after being hit by Jeremy Hellickson’s 90 MPH fastball, and looked to be in severe pain. The rookie was quickly attended to by a trainer and removed from the game.
The 22-year-old Franco had been making a solid case for NL Rookie of the Year, batting .277 with 13 home runs, 22 doubles and 48 RBIs in 76 games in 2015.
