They Say It Comes In Threes

Anthony Di Como at Mets.com, writes about Moises Alou and how he wound up with stitches in his chin and an injured shoulder:

Left fielder Moises Alou became the latest in a suddenly lengthy string of injuries for the Mets, receiving two stitches on his chin after charging into the left-field wall in Monday night's 9-6 loss to the Marlins.

Alou also aggravated the right shoulder that he jammed in a game against the Nationals over the weekend. He will have an MRI on the shoulder Tuesday, and is day-to-day.

With one out in the eighth inning Monday, Marlins pinch-hitter Jason Wood drilled an Aaron Sele offering to left field, where Alou appeared to have a play. But the ball, the wall and the left fielder all met at the same time, popping the ball out of Alou's glove and sending the 40-year-old veteran to the ground with a badly cut chin.
