Lucas Duda missed most of last season with a fracture in his back.

Cesar Hernandez went 0-for-5 Wednesday night, but he took out two Mets in one inning.

Travis d’Arnaud left Wednesday night’s game with a bruised and cut right wrist in the seventh inning and Lucas Duda was forced out in the fifth with a hyperextended left elbow. They are both considered day-to-day.

“I guess his range of motion was pretty good when they did some treatment on it. I’ve seen those in the past they can be serious. He’s going to be sore tomorrow,” Terry Collins said of Duda.

The Mets’ first baseman was pulled into Hernandez’s path by Robert Gsellman’s wide throw to try and catch Hernandez at the bag. Hernandez ran throw Duda’s extended arm, bending it back unnaturally.

With Aaron Altherr in the batter’s box, Hernandez took off for second. Trying to throw him out, d’Arnaud’s hand collided with Altherr’s bat.

“Travis hit the bat on the throw to second and his wrist, he cut it and it swelled up. He didn’t think he could swing or throw,” Collins said. “It’s just a bruise, but we’ll probably have to give him a day tomorrow also.”

D’Arnaud is scheduled to be off Thursday anyway with Noah Syndergaard making the start for the Mets. Rene Rivera is Syndergaard’s personal catcher.
