Rockies 1B Daniel Murphy breaks finger, out indefinitely

MIAMI—Colorado Rockies first baseman Daniel Murphy is out indefinitely with a broken finger on his left hand.

Murphy was injured diving for a sharp grounder in the fourth inning Friday night against Miami. Murphy remained in the game and got his first hit with the Rockies in the ninth inning, but swelling on his finger worsened overnight.

Murphy said Saturday that X-rays showed a fracture on the tip of his left index finger. He is likely headed to the injured list, though his prognosis won’t be set until he visits a hand specialist Monday.

And Murphy’s bad-luck streak extends itself.

If you've got to have 6-8 weeks off, this is the time to do it. Sucks for Murphy, however.

How weird. I heard he broke his finger, I assumed he got hit by a pitch. But he broke the tip of his finger on a fielding play?

So they are callign it "avulsion fracture, mallet finger." That sucks. The tendon can't straighten the finger tip. I had that, it took a long time to fix and required immobilization for several weeks.

It is as if there was some sort of law dictating Daniel's misfortune.
