Breaking news:

Omar Infante: Broken Left Hand

Rotowire.com
Update: Infante suffered a broken hand in the ninth inning of Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Giants when he was hit by a Santiago Casilla pitch, according to MLive.com. Officially, it's a non-displaced fracture of the fifth metacarpal on his left hand.

Recommendation: The injury will not require surgery - it's very similar to what Alex Rodriguez suffered during the season - but Infante will need several weeks to recover. He'll probably be fine for the start of the 2013 season, though a decent 2012 season that certainly got more exciting when he was traded to a contender ended with a thud.
