Florial (wrist) underwent an MRI and visited a hand specialist Monday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Florial was diagnosed with a non-displaced right wrist fracture after crashing into the outfield wall over the weekend. Monday's MRI revealed a small second fracture, however the issue is reportedly inconsequential and isn't expected to affect his recovery time. It's still unclear exactly how long the youngster will be sidelined, but the fact that he won't need surgery bodes well for his chances of avoiding an extended absence. He's expected to wear a hard cast for a few weeks before being reevaluated. Once healthy, Florial figures to report to either High-A Tampa or Double-A Trenton.
