1:10am: A-Rod suffered a non-displaced fracture of the fifth metacarpal in his left hand and is going to the DL. That’s better than a displaced fracture but still sucks. They won’t know the exact timetable for his return until he sees the doctors in New York on Thursday. Fan-friggin’-tastic. At least this happened before the trade deadline.
12:11am: Alex Rodriguez left tonight’s game in the eighth inning after getting hit by a pitch in the left wrist/hand. He was in obvious pain and was taken out of the game immediately. Updates to follow, but obviously losing A-Rod for any length of time would be very bad.
