Josh Harrison Out Six Weeks with Broken Hand

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced on Monday afternoon that Josh Harrison sustained a fracture to the fifth metacarpal of his left hand and they estimated that his return would be six weeks. He was hit on the hand by a pitch in yesterday’s game.

No roster move has been announced to take his spot, but the Pirates could either go with Max Moroff, who could play second base, or bring up an outfielder and have Adam Frazier and/or Sean Rodriguez take turns there until Harrison returns. The Pirates will also be making a move to add waiver pickup left-handed pitcher Enny Romero to the roster today, so stay tuned for updates later in the day.
