From Lance’s Blog:
Alonso to the DL
From Jamie Ramsey of the Reds
1b Yonder Alonso (Carolina) broke his right hamate bone (a hand bone) yesterday in the nightcap of a doubleheader at Tennessee when he swung at a pitch….he has been placed on Carolina’s DL.
Guess now we know why Spotlight Player Logan Parker replaced him in last night’s game.
UPDATE: This morning’s Enquirer (6/20) is reporting that Alonso will “probably have surgery and be out at least 6 weeks.”
It also has some info on Reds #1 pick Mike Leake, who reportedly was going to be shut down with tendinitis, but threw Friday night for Arizona State.
