Kyle Lohse injury: Brewers RHP dislocates finger

USA TODAY Sports

Brewers RHP Kyle Lohse dislocated a finger on his non-throwing hand last night.

The Milwaukee Brewers received a scare last night when right-handed starting pitcher Kyle Lohse suffered a finger injury. While initially it looked as if the finger could be broken, X-rays came back negative and Milwaukee believes Lohse is only dealing with a dislocated pinky on his left hand, according to Tom Haudricourt of The Journal Sentinel.

Lohse sustained the injury while attempting to leg out a sacrifice bunt in the sixth inning of last night's contest against the San Diego Padres. When Lohse reached first base, his left pinky clipped Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko, who was covering the bag.

Following the game, manager Ron Roenicke told reporters that X-rays on the injured finger were negative. He added that he thinks Lohse will be "OK for his next start," as he noted that veteran has previously pitched through a dislocated finger.

Prior to suffering his injury, Lohse was solid over his five innings of work. The right-hander held the Padres to one run on five hits and one walk while recording four strikeouts. Though he was forced to exit early, he picked up his first win of the season.

It sounds like he'll be able to try for his second W when his next regularly scheduled start arrives.
