18 APRIL 2015: Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Kyle Drabek (51) is set to deliver a pitch during a regular season game between the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers played at Comerica Park in Detroit, MI.

The Arizona Diamondbacks’ dismal season got worse Saturday with the news that All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt has a fractured left hand.
Goldschmidt, runner-up in National League MVP voting last season, was hurt when he was hit above his ring finger by a pitch from Ernesto Frieri in the ninth inning of Friday night’s 9-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Diamondbacks have placed Goldschmidt on the 15-day disabled list and there was no word before Saturday’s game on how long he is expected to be sidelined.
“I was holding out hope. Wasn’t trying to think about it being broken,” said Goldschmidt, who stayed in the game after being hit and advanced to second base before the final out was made.
A 2006 graduate of The Woodlands High School, Goldschmidt was to be examined further on Saturday after getting X-rays late Friday. He broke a bone in his left hand, the hamate, while in college and had it removed but had not had any other injuries of that sort since. click here for complete story
