Marlon Byrd Fractures Wrist After Getting Hit By Pitch
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Marlon Byrd fractured his right wrist on Tuesday night when he got hit by a pitch in a 5-4 loss against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Byrd was hit by Sean O’Sullivan in the sixth inning, and he looked to be in severe pain when it first happened. Byrd was able to shake it off and run the bases, but he was replaced by Brennan Boesch in the bottom of the 7th inning.
Reds manager, Bryan Price, told ESPN reporters, “It’s a wrist fracture but right now we don’t know to what degree.”
This has some major implications for the Reds as a team. Currently the Reds stand fourth in the National League Central, and they are 11 games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for first place. They currently seem too far behind to catch up, but it is only June. Crazier things have happened.
