Pirates' Josh Harrison: Out six weeks with fracture in hand
Harrison was diagnosed with a fracture of the fifth metacarpal on his left hand Monday and is expected to miss approximately six weeks.
This is a tough break for Harrison, who suffered an identical injury in September of last year that ended his season prematurely. The 30-year-old sustained the injury after getting hit by a pitch during Sunday's game against the Marlins. His initial timetable for a return has him sidelined until the beginning of June. As such, he'll hit the disabled list. Harrison was off to a hot start to the season prior to injuring himself, hitting .263/.328/.351 with a homer, a stolen base and five RBI across 14 games. The Pirates will likely use a combination of Adam Frazier and Sean Rodriguez to fill in for Harrison at the keystone.
