The Buffalloes announced on Wednesday that Fumihiro Suzuki went to the hospital on Tuesday and was diagnosed with a fractured nose (4 weeks for a full recovery).  Suzuki suffered the injury when a thrown ball struck him in the face during pre-game fielding practice on Tuesday.

Despite the fracture, Suzuki still managed to make it into the line-up on Wednesday night as the starting catcher and went 2-for-3.

UPDATE @ 10:10am - It seems he suffered four fractures in his nose.
