Braves’ Huascar Ynoa Breaks Hand Punching Wall, Expected To Miss Several Months

Braves right-hander Huascar Ynoa has broken his pitching hand after punching a wall and is expected to miss “several months,” Braves beat writer Mark Bowman reports. For a team struggling to get out on the mound, this is not ideal.

Personally, I feel that athletes should have their contracts voided when this happens. You can’t show up to work, slam your head into a table because you didn’t do your job, and then expect a check when you have a concussion.

The 22-year-old Ynoa pitched 4 1/3 innings in the Braves’ 10-9 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. Atlanta’s farm is thin as is, so we’ll see how they absorb the loss of their promising right-hander.

“No one feels worse than Huascar right now,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said post-game.

Probably not, Brian. I would say your team owner does now that he has to pay an employee who doesn’t do any work $555,000.

  1. As a Braves fan this is horrible news. An even more horrible decision by Ynoa. This season is going to be a looong one. I hope Ynoa can return as the same player that was doing so well and this doesn’t screw him up.

    • This season has already been a long one!
      And with a dipshit triple-A for life managing if the team and bullpen the way he always does, this season is ka-put.

      With the new of Soroka last week, now this shit about Ynoa?!
      Forget about it.
      It’s over.
