Zach Plesac’s start on Sunday didn’t go well. As a result, he got pulled early. Frustrated, he ripped his t-shirt off in the clubhouse…and accidentally hit his right (throwing) hand on a folding chair. The next day it had become swollen. X-rays have shown a nondisplaced fracture of the thumb.
He’s supposed to see a hand specialist later to determine prognosis. Based on the report of it being nondisplaced, expect 6 weeks out, or so.
