Cardinals´ DeJong suffers fractured hand, to miss ´significant time´

May 19 2018 1:34 AM

The St Louis Cardinals placed shortstop Paul DeJong on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured left hand, the team announced on Friday.

Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak told the St Louis Post-Dispatch that DeJong is undergoing surgery on Friday and will have a plate installed. He is expected to miss "significant time".

Phillies reliever Luis Garcia hit DeJong on the hand with a slider in the eighth inning of Thursday's game.

This is obviously not good news for the Cardinals, who have been struggling to generate offense (they are 24th in the majors in runs scored). The 24-year-old DeJong, who had a breakout season last year with 25 home runs and a .857 OPS, is tied for the team lead with eight home runs this year. He is slashing .260/.351/.473.

DeJong is also the only shortstop on the roster with MLB experience. The Cardinals announced on Friday they have recalled infielder Yairo Munoz from Triple-A Memphis.
