Second baseman Martin Prado(notes) broke the second knuckle on his right pinkie finger while diving into home plate in the Atlanta Braves’ latest win, an injury that will sideline the leadoff hitter for at least a week.
Prado jammed the hand while sliding hard into home plate Friday night during the 10th inning of a 6-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds. X-rays initially were inconclusive. Tests on Saturday found the fracture, which won’t need surgery.
Prado is expected to be sidelined for a week to 10 days. Manager Bobby Cox said the team will take a day or two before deciding whether to put him on the 15-day disabled list.
ESPN: Prado (pinkie) is feeling better and the Braves will wait another day before making a decision on whether to place him on the DL, the team's official web site reports.
