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.
