Pirates Injury Update: Cherington Says Henry Davis has Small Fracture on Wrist

Published

on

On May 10th, we saw the Pirates Double-A affiliate, the Altoona Curve, place Henry Davis on the 7-day injured list with a wrist injury. The severity of the wrist injury was unknown at the time, but it seemed like it was a minor issue.

Pitches have hit Davis 11 times which is an enormous rate considering he’s only had 87 at-bats in 2022. Playing a position like catcher is brutal enough, so the hit by pitches needs to come down; some have suggested that Davis needs to back off of the plate a tad more.

Ben Cherington, on his radio show, discussed Davis and his injury. Cherington mentioned that Davis suffered a small fracture in his wrist.

“This injury is going to take a few days to calm down,” said Cherington. [Davis] got hit by a pitch, as he often does. This injury happened in Greensboro before he got called up to Altoona. Davis was obviously playing through it and probably hit a home run with that injury.”

Cherington mentioned that after a few days in Altoona, Davis reported soreness, and the pain didn’t subside, so they decided to get a picture taken. After the picture was taken, the Pirates found a small fracture.

“Davis should be back doing baseball activities before too long,” said Cherington. “This again speaks to Davis’ toughness, knowing he was playing through an injury like that.
