Seattle Mariners catcher Adam Moore suffered a wrist injury while blocking a ball on Tuesday during a Spring Training game against the Cincinnati Reds. It was believed that he suffered a metacarpal fracture and would likely miss the first few months of the regular season. Now it appears as though that injury may not be quite as bad as initially reported.
Larry LaRue of the Tacoma News Tribune reported on Friday that the injury may be a bone chip, rather than a break.
What appeared to be a broken metacarpal bone in his right wrist may be a bone chip, and Moore was placed in a brace, not a cast. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
"I'm praying for the best, two weeks max. Realistically, it'll be two-to-four weeks. I consider this a bump in the road," Moore said.
Moore is already thinking about catching bullpen sessions with his right hand kept behind his back. Sounds like the M's may have caught a lucky ... uh ... break.
