Cubs' Gonzalez suffers broken wrist

Postby WebHamster » Thu May 06, 2004 4:00 pm

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Chicago Cubs shortstop Alex Gonzalez could miss up to six weeks with a broken bone in his right wrist.

Gonzalez suffered the injury in the seventh inning of Wednesday's 2-0 setback to Arizona when Mike Koplove hit him with a pitch. He wasn't awarded first base on the play because home plate umpire Charlie Reliford ruled it was a foul ball.

The injury is a non-displaced fracture that doesn't require surgery. Gonzalez will wear a cast for at least three weeks.

In 24 games this season, Gonzalez is batting .244 with three home runs and seven RBI.

Ramon Martinez will fill in at shortstop for the Cubs in Gonzalez's absence.
