Dodgers News: Miguel Vargas Has a Fractured Bone in His Right Hand

This is not the news Dodger fans want to see. On Monday, it was announced that Dodgers infielder Miguel Vargas suffered an injury in his right hand, that will keep him from swinging the bat for a few weeks. The injury is said to be a fractured bone in his right hand, and Vargas suffered it when he took a ground ball off the pinkie finger on his right hand. The team took an X-Ray and it showed a hairline fracture.

While Vargas won’t be able to swing, he will be able to keep fielding and practicing the infield spots. However, in a few days, the Dodgers are hoping he’s back to swinging, and will allow him to ease back into it based on where the pain tolerance is at.

Obviously, you never want to see anyone get hurt in spring training, but especially not someone who’s working to improve his all around game ahead of the new season.

The Dodgers have high hopes for Vargas, and with a good spring, he could easily become the team’s everyday second baseman. So, hopefully this is just a minor setback, and Vargas can get back to his normal routine sooner rather than later.

We’ll continue to update you on Vargas’ status when we learn more.
