Bloomquist could be out 2 months with broken hand

Arizona infielder Willie Bloomquist says he has two broken bones

in his left hand and has been told to expect to be sidelined for

six to eight weeks.

Bloomquist was injured when he was hit by a pitch against at

Washington on June 26 and got the results of a CT scan Friday. He

says it’s the same injury that sidelined teammate Aaron Hill for

much of this season, except it’s two broken bones instead of


Bloomquist was on the disabled list for the first two months of

the season with an oblique injury and has been on the disabled list

since June 28.
