Jayson Nix suffers fractured left hand on HBP

Not every player in pinstripes is in celebration mode on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.

According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, infielder Jayson Nix was diagnosed with a fractured left hand after getting plunked with an R.A. Dickey pitch in the bottom of the second inning.

Nix is going to be reevaluated on Thursday, but it’s a pretty good bet that he is done for the remainder of the 2013 regular season. He’ll be the 24th Yankees player to spend time on the disabled list this year.

Nix was filling in at third base for Alex Rodriguez, who got the evening off. Mark Reynolds entered the game at the hot corner. Nix, 30, was batting .236/.308/.311 through 87 games played this season.

    Wow…just….wow.

    It’s too bad. Nix is a solid Pro and his contributions exceeded his line score.

    Injury-wise, .. the hits just keep on coming.

      Agree 100%. He’s defensively solid and can play most of the infield, and he’s got some speed to boot. They’re gonna miss this guy.

    This whole “fast knuckleball” thing that Dickey throws is dangerous. I doubt Tim Wakefield ever broke somebody’s hand. His knuckleball barely broke the speed of smell.

      Tim Wakefield once broke a guys hand with a fastball.

      Weirdest thing. The guy had never even heard of milk let alone drank any of it.

      And he was also 87.

      Why was he still playing baseball, you ask? Because he was in the next-to-last year of a long term contract he signed with the Yankees.

      Wow….this one really upped my joke-to-post ratio and is barely even going to dent my good-to-bad joke ratio because those guys were running neck-and-neck anyway and it’s a large sample pool.

      There are 1,025 pitchers who have hit at least 30 batsmen. Here are some recent knuckleballers and where they rank:

      PA/HBP  Rank
       1/75   112  Tim Wakefield 
      1/121   456  R.A. Dickey
      1/177   748  Wilbur Wood
      1/184   786  Phil Niekro
      1/233   900  Joe Niekro

      Dickey is pretty average, just a tick above.

    Time to bean four jay hitters

      harry, don’t pout.

    • tfbuckfutter - Aug 21, 2013 at 11:05 PM

      It’s the combination of the bean + j and y that is doing it….

      But every time I refresh this page I see “Time for some jelly bean hitters”.

      ON four pitches or 16 (if thrown by Dempster clone) ? Time to unleash the Hellfire Missile barrage of Granderson/Soriano/Cano Homers ! Oh say can you see, by the rockets red glare ?

    jays lose another one!! hahaha

      Yes they did. But your geriatric Yankees aren’t going anywhere this season.

      • dcarroll73 - Aug 22, 2013 at 12:43 AM

        Come back and talk about that in a month or so. They are finally getting their first team together. If their pitching clicks, I don’t like your odds, jason. Even if they don’t make it, this is about the best “rag tag” group since Lorne Greene tried sci-fi.

      • nbjays - Aug 22, 2013 at 6:35 AM

        Pretty damn expensive “rag tag” group if you ask me.

    Only seriously intrested people will be warmly welcomed,Thanks,, you have to work and use the computer and internet,
    and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem. I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already.
    let me know if you need more here you go… “~ http://qr.net/kNHF

      I actually much rather read these spam comments about how to make 2000$/week than read Dirtyharry’s trolling, both should be banned for life!
