Wells out two months, Hollimon day-to-day

The Tigers just lost one of their outfield prospects for a significant stretch, according to the Erie Times-News. Casper Wells is expected to miss two months after he fractured his hamate bone in his left hand. He somehow did it swinging and missing at a pitch earlier this week. He’ll undergo surgery next week and do 6-8 weeks of rehab.

Michael Hollimon, meanwhile, is day-to-day with a bruised left knee which he suffered crashing into the fence separating the third-base stands from the field while he was chasing a foul ball Tuesday night. It’s his second tough break already this year; he missed time in Spring Training when he took a ball off his bare hand, pulling back the nail on his right middle finger.

Forgive me if I’ve missed something, but have there been any updates on Bonderman’s condition in the past couple weeks?

to quote beck:

Bonderman, also on the disabled list with shoulder issues, played catch earlier this week in Lakeland. Leyland said he’s scheduled to throw off a mound in the coming days. Meanwhile, Leyland added, Dontrelle Willis — who began the season on the DL with an anxiety disorder — threw there earlier this week, as well. Leyland said he talked with Willis on the phone.

“He seemed upbeat,” Leyland said. “He seemed in real good spirits.”

Thanks Chad, I must have missed that one.
