According to Red Sox farm director Mike Hazen, a CT scan on Wednesday revealed that Red Sox prospect Jose Iglesias, who was hit by a pitch on the right hand on May 29, suffered an occult fracture of the right index finger. An occult fracture is one that cannot be identified by X-rays, but that can be found instead once evidence of healing becomes available. In Iglesias' case, the healing of the injury has begun, and so the fracture could be identified.
Initially, the Sox anticipated that Iglesias -- who is playing for Double-A Portland -- would be sidelined for no more than a few days, but when the injury lingered beyond expectations, the further tests were ordered, leading to the discovery of the fracture. The injury affects Iglesias most when he attempts to throw the ball; obviously, given that the injury is to his right hand, he can field without any issue. He had also been hitting, but the Sox will have him take a break from doing so in the immediate term, and Iglesias will not throw for the next two weeks. Once that period has elapsed, his condition will be reassessed.
In his first professional season after signing a four-year major league contract with the Sox for $8.25 million last summer, Iglesias was hitting .306 with a .340 OBP, .408 slugging mark and .748 OPS for Portland. He had committed seven errors in 40 games, receiving generally high marks for his performance.
