Injury Update: Hunter Pence

Hunter Pence was hit by a pitch Thursday and has subsequently been diagnosed with a "non-displaced fracture of the forearm."  The team estimates Pence could miss between 6-8 weeks of action, which seems a bit optimistic considering Curtis Granderson missed 10 weeks with a similar injury two years ago.  A displaced fracture means that the two bone parts are not in proper alignment.  A non-displaced fracture means that the bone, while fractured, remains aligned.  Non-displaced fractures may simply require bracing and anti-inflammatory medicine.  Whereas, displaced fractures may require surgery in order to ensure that the dislocated bones are replaced in their normal anatomic positions.
According to FantasyPros Pence has an ADP of 56 which is surely to be adjusted in the coming days.  Additionally, Razzball projected Pence to hit .272 with 21 HR's while driving in 98.  Click HERE to see the updated Hunter Pence injury sheet.
