UPDATE: X-rays came back negative. It’s just a bruise. No word on exactly when he’ll be back.
Eduardo Nunez was hit by a pitch on the right hand during a game against the Phillies on Monday and immediately left the game. Afterwards he was diagnosed with a right hand contusion, according to Jack Curry of the YES Network.
Nunez said that he doesn’t think anything is broken, but he will go in for x-rays as a precaution.
This isn’t a huge deal if nothing is broken. He’s not fighting for a roster spot and should be ready by Opening Day. If it is a broken bone in his hand then he could be at risk to miss a few games to start the year.
