Hiroshima Carp: Brad Eldred to miss six to eight weeks

by on Apr.22, 2013 @ 10:39 pm, under NPB

Brad Eldred was re-examined at a hospital in Hiroshima earlier today and was again diagnosed with a fracture in his right fifth metacarpal (pinky). It will be about four weeks until he can begin practices and another two to four weeks before he will be able to return to playing.  He does not require surgery and will be ok to continue training, so long as he does not place any strain on his right pinky.
