PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Josh Harrison is out six weeks with a broken bone in his left hand.
The team says Harrison fractured his pinkie finger Sunday when he was hit with a pitch by Miami’s Jose Urena in the third inning of Pittsburgh’s 7-3 win over the Marlins.
On Monday, Harrison met with a hand specialist in Pittsburgh who diagnosed the injury.
This isn’t the first time Harrison has broken a bone when getting hit by a pitch. The two-time All-Star missed the final month of the 2017 season, when he broke the same finger when he was hit by Cincinnati’s Tyler Mahle.
