    a-rod breaks hand

    Headed to disabled list

    SEATTLE -- New York third baseman Alex Rodriguez had to leave the Yankees' game against Seattle in the eighth inning Tuesday after being hit on the left hand by a fastball from Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.

    After the game, Rodriguez was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a non-displaced fracture in his left hand.

    It was a bit of inexplicable wildness for former Cy Young Award winner Hernandez, who hit three of the final five batters he faced, Ichiro Suzuki and Derek Jeter before A-Rod.

    Rodriguez immediately grabbed his left hand with his right, fell on the ground on his back and began writhing in pain.

    The medical crew and manager Joe Girardi were quick on the spot, and after a few moments, Girardi had Jayson Nix take over as a pinch runner at first base.

    There was no immediate word on the severity of Rodriguez's injury.

    The Yankees, down 3-1 at the time, didn't have to face Hernandez after that, but a one-run rally in the eighth inning left New York one run down before losing 4-2.

    Facing his third batter in relief of Hernandez in the eighth, Lucas Luetge also buzzed a pitch near Raul Ibanez's head that sent the Yankees veteran to the ground before striking out the left fielder to end the top half of the inning.

    Thought so the way that pitch just took a sharp turn and hit his hand cleanly sucks.

    Felix really didn't have great command tonight hit Ichiro and Jeter to.

    Andrelton Simmons of the braves has the same injury. He is expected to miss a month. From what i have read, its a 3-6 week injury. But, everyone heals at a different pace. This injury might force the Yankees front office into making another trade. If not, they joe would have to play chavez, and ibanez/jones in the field every day. Hopefully swisher will be back soon.

    Eric Chavez returned from the exact same injury in 37 days. Now, if someone made of glass can return in that short of time then i would expect it would not take arod much longer if at all. Either way.. i would guess he would be back the first or second week of september.

    Thank goodness it's the baseball one. I don't call him a-rod, but I was worried this thread was about Rodgers !

    Hopefully he makes a quick recovery though..damn injuries.

    Its a baseball forum. Why would it not be about him?
