Matt Curry Has Hamate Surgery
Altoona Curve first baseman Matt Curry had surgery to fix the fractured hamate bone in his right wrist yesterday. Curry was our #34 prospect in the Pirates system entering 2013, and losing the middle-of-the-line up threat will likely hurt the already struggling Curve offense.
Before hitting the DL earlier this week, the left-handed hitting Curry was batting .248/.286/.400 with four home runs and 16 RBIs.
While I did not receive official word on the length of his expected absence, generally hamate surgery requires about a two month layoff, so Curry should return to action later this summer.
