Chase d’Arnaud Has Torn Thumb Ligament

According to a tweet from Rob Biertempfel, infielder Chase d’Arnaud’s left thumb injury, which has kept him out of action since late last week, is a torn ligament that may require surgery.  This could keep d’Arnaud out for a considerably longer stretch at an inopportune time for him.  He’s trying to regain prospect status after struggling to a 252/325/383 line in AAA last year.  He’s currently competing for a utility infielder job with Brandon Inge, Josh Harrison, Ivan De Jesus, Jr., and Jordy Mercer.  An extended absence could leave d’Arnaud in a tough spot on the depth chart.

Tough spot? Howabout not even ON the depth chart!
Of course, with that injury he can still pinchrun, which is about all he is good for any more.
