Pirates' Harrison expected to miss 6 weeks
PITTSBURGH - Pirates' infielder Josh Harrison is expected to miss about six weeks after being hit by a pitch Sunday.
Team officials announced Monday that Harrison was evaluated and it was determined he broke the fifth metacarpal of his left hand.
Officials said his estimated time to return is six weeks. Harrison left Sunday's win over the Marlins after being hit by a pitch in the third inning.
Harrison was hit by a pitch 23 times last year, the second most in the league.
