Nationals speedster Trea Turner fractures wrist on hit by pitch

The Nationals have lost Trea Turner indefinitely due to a broken wrist suffered Thursday.

In the bottom of the seventh inning of Washington’s 5-4 loss to the Cubs, Turner was hit in the right wrist by a 96 mph fastball from Chicago reliever Pedro Strop. Turner glanced briefly at Strop, then walked slowly to first base.

The 24-year old shortstop remained in the game and caught a pop-up in the top of the eighth inning, but was replaced in the top of the ninth by reserve infielder Wilmer Difo.

“I didn’t know,” Turner said. “I had tape on my wrist, so initially it didn’t feel that bad. But I went out there and tried throwing. It hurt to lob the ball, but it felt fine when I threw it as hard as I could or basically full speed. “So I stayed in there a little bit, and then after a little while it started stiffening up on me so I figured I’d get out of there. In a close game, didn’t want to make a double-cut play or whatever it might be. I figured (Stephen) Drew might have a better shot or Difo. They’d have a better shot at playing some defense.”

X-rays confirmed the break. The Nationals did not give a timetable for Turner’s return to the team.
