Rays' Damon injures left hand

BY foxsports • April 17, 2011

Tampa Bay Rays left fielder Johnny Damon left Sunday's game against Minnesota with a bruise on the tip of his left ring finger.

Damon appeared to get hurt while attempting to bunt in the third inning. He had the hand placed on the middle of his bat and it appeared to get partially struck by Brian Duensing's pitch.

Matt Joyce replaced Damon defensively in the fifth.

The Rays said Damon's status is day to day.
