Almora breaks hamate bone 


Albert Almora, the Cubs # 1 draft pick in 2012, tweeted tonight (March 14) @albertlamora that he had broken his hamate bone (located in wrist). He did not indicate how long he would be out or how it happened.

Cubs MLB.com reporter Carrie Muskat is reporting that Almora broke the bone swinging and will miss 3-4 weeks of baseball activities and return to game action in late May

Disappointing, but at least he's still a few years away and it's a rebuilding year.  Hopefully this doesn't effect his swing.

It shouldn't if he actually broke it yesterday, which it sounds like. The problem with some players is that they break it, don't know it, and keep playing. Which usually results in surgery. Look for Trey Martin in centerfield for Kane County to start the season. He can play.

My guess is that you don't know it's there until you break it.
