Wendle went through fielding drills Saturday with a brace on his broken right wrist, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports. Wendle was given a 6-to-8-week timetable when he suffered the injury in late April, making him unlikely to return before early June. Brandon Lowe has taken over as the Rays' second baseman in his absence.
Wendle's broken wrist is expected to keep him out for 6-to-8 weeks, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Early estimations of Wendle's timetable had him out for three or four weeks, but the first indications from the team are that he'll be out longer than that. The given timeline is preliminary and could be updated, but for now, consider Wendle unlikely to return before early June.
Wendle (wrist) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports. This was expected after Wendle was diagnosed with a fractured right wrist Wednesday, an injury he suffered after getting hit by a pitch. It's unclear how long the injury will keep the infielder sidelined at this point, though John Romano of the Tampa Bay Times estimates that Wendle will be unavailable for at least 3-to-4 weeks. Christian Arroyo was summoned from the minors in a corresponding move, while Brandon Lowe figures to cover the keystone while Wendle is on the shelf.
Wendle was diagnosed with a right wrist fracture Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. Wendle exited Wednesday's game against the Royals after getting hit by a pitch during the sixth inning, and subsequent X-rays revealed he is dealing with a broken wrist. This is a tough break for the second baseman, who only recently returned from a hamstring injury. While Wendle is expected to land back on the injured list, the potential length of his absence remains unclear. Look for Brandon Lowe to cover the keystone in his absence.
Wendle went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Royals on Tuesday, his first hit in three games since returning from a hamstring injury. The versatile infielder had gone 0-for-9 in his first two games since coming off the injured list, and despite snapping that brief slump Tuesday, he's now hitting just .050 over a small sample of 22 plate appearances. Wendle slashed an impressive .300/.354/.435 last season over 545 trips to the plate.
