Domonic Brown Fractures Hamate Bone in Hand-Out 3-6 Weeks

Phillies outfield prospect Domonic Brown has not had a good offseason, and things got worse today. He injured his hand swinging the bat today and this tweet from Todd Zolecki at MLB.com has the details:

X-rays showed Domonic Brown has a fracture in his right hand. Surgery is likely, which would sideline him 3-6 weeks.

Ben Francisco's stock just rocketed higher with this news, as he is the clear favorite to play everyday in right field for the Phillies, and he hits right-handed as well. Francisco has value in NL-only leagues, but not so much in mixed leagues.

Here is more from Zolecki's blog post:

Domonic Brown's chances to win the everyday job in right field evaporated today when he fractured his right hand.

Surgery is likely, which would sideline him three to six weeks.

Brown fractured the hook of the hamate bone swinging at the first pitch in his first at-bat in the second inning against the Pirates at Bright House Field. He finished the at-bat, singling up the middle to end a 0-for-15 start to his Grapefruit League season. Brown left the game before the top of the third, returning to the clubhouse and leaving the ballpark quickly for an x-ray.
