A-Rod Headed to the DL with a Broken Hand

This team's luck is just awful. Here's the most recent bad news, via Marc Carig:
Alex Rodriguez will go onto the disabled list after suffering a non-displaced fracture in his left hand. Rodriguez was hit on the hand by an 88-mph changeup from Felix Hernandez in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's 4-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners.

The fracture is on the pinky side of the hand.
Over the last 10 days Rodriguez had started to find his stroke at the plate, hitting .341 with two homers six RBI. So, this couldn't have come at a worse time for Alex and the Yankees.

Eric Chavez spoke after the game about a similar injury he had that cost him 33 games in 2004 so I'm guessing A-Rod will be out anywhere from 4-6 weeks.
