J.T. Realmuto injury: Phillies catcher suffers broken right thumb, could miss at least two weeks

Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto has a fractured right thumb and might not be ready to rejoin the ballclub for Opening Day, manager Joe Girardi told reporters, including Scott Lauber, on Thursday. The fracture happened six days ago, according to Matt Breen of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Girardi told reporters that the fracture is at the base of Realmuto’s throwing thumb and it’ll be immobilized for two weeks before the team doctors re-evaluate. The manager said they are “hopeful” Realmuto will be in the opening day starting lineup, giving us a good idea of a possible timetable for his return. The Phillies open the season Thursday, April 1 at home against the Braves.
