Reds’ Marlon Byrd Suffers Fractured Hand After Wild Pitch

Dr Pruzansky | June 19, 2015

Cincinnati Reds’ Marlon Byrd suffered a fractured wrist on June 2nd and was immediately placed on the team’s disabled list.

Byrd suffered the injury after being hit by a pitch during the team’s loss against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.

Ivan DeJesus Jr. has been recalled from Triple-A to fill in for Byrd.

The injury could end up costing Byrd millions, because he would be due $8 million next season if he has 550 plate appearances this year.

If Byrd is out of commission for an extended period of time, that option won’t vest.
