Huascar Ynoa breaks hand, will miss at least two months

Huascar Ynoa dealt a blow to the dugout bench in Milwaukee Sunday, and in doing so, dealt a bigger blow to himself and his team.


Ynoa, frustrated following one of his few uninspiring outings, punched a dugout bench and broke his right hand, manager Brian Snitker said Monday. Ynoa will miss at least two months. He was officially placed on the 10-day injured list with a fractured right hand before Monday’s series opener against the Mets.

“That’s a tough one,” Snitker said. “He got frustrated after his outing yesterday and punched the seat in the dugout and broke his hand. It’s going to be a couple months that he’ll be down, then we’ll have to get him built back up. I hate to see that. The young guy was doing so well. That’s a big loss for us.”

Ynoa, 22, was the breakout star of the Braves’ season. He had a 2.23 ERA in eight games entering Sunday. He’d also impressed with the bat, hitting two homers, including a grand slam. The Braves desperately needed one of their young pitchers to step up given their rotation situation, and Ynoa did. At least for a while.

Rookie mistake: you always punch with your non-throwing hand.

If I was a pitcher who was a few years away from making untold millions if I could just keep pitching well and not getting hurt, I'd basically wear a suit made of bubble wrap around the house all day. Or at least I would punch a solid object with my non-throwing hand...

Bull Durham should be required viewing for all young pitchers. Or in this day of short attention spans, at least make them watch the bar fight scene between Nuke and Crash.
