The New York Mets placed star slugger Pete Alonso on the injured list with a left wrist bone bruise and sprain, the team announced Friday.

The Mets' announcement said it typically takes three-to-four weeks for a player to return from this type of injury.

The two-time All-Star first baseman was removed from Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Braves after getting hit on the hand and wrist by a pitch.

Alonso leads the majors with 22 home runs.

The Mets recalled infielder Luis Guillorme and left-hander Zach Muckenhirn from Triple-A and designated right-hander Stephen Nogosek for assignment in corresponding moves. Catcher Tomas Nido was also outrighted to Triple-A.
