Detroit Tigers’ JaCoby Jones fractures left hand in win over Brewers

Detroit Free Press

Detroit Tigers center fielder JaCoby Jones left Tuesday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers with a fractured left hand, according to the Tigers.

The timetable for his return is unknown. 

In the eighth inning, Jones was hit by a 90.3 mph fastball from Phil Bickford, making his MLB debut. The pitch made contact with his right hand, and Jones had to be removed from the game after a meeting with head athletic trainer Doug Teter.

He yelled an expletive on his way off the field.

It was the 24th time Jones has been hit by a pitch in 316 career games and the third time it has happened this season.

Jones was hit by a pitch in the left wrist Aug. 8, 2019, on a 95 mph fastball from Kansas City Royals right-hander Jorge Lopez. The Tigers initially believed he avoided a serious injury, but a follow-up CT scan showed a fracture.

With a six-week recovery, his season ended early. 

This season, Jones is batting .268 with five home runs and 14 RBIs in 30 games.
