Arizona Diamondbacks right fielder Corbin Carroll left Wednesday’s game against the Colorado Rockies in the fifth inning after getting hit in the wrist by a pitch.
Carroll was diagnosed with a right wrist contusion after being beamed by Gavin Hollowell in the bottom of the fourth. Carroll remained in the game and came around to score on a two-run single from Alek Thomas, but when Arizona came back out to take the field in the next half-inning, Tommy Pham had taken over in right field.
Prior to exiting, Carroll went 0-for-1 with a strikeout and was hit by a pitch twice. He scored two runs.
Carroll, 23, entered Wednesday batting .280 with 24 homers, 68 RBIs, 99 runs, nine triples and 41 stolen bases.
The Diamondbacks (71-68) are in the thick of the National League wild-card race, contending with the Miami Marlins and Cincinnati Reds for the third and final berth.
