Gorkys Hernandez Breaks Finger

Pirates prospect Gorkys Hernandez has broken a finger and will miss the rest of the season. He's the latest Pirates prospect to go down with what farm director Kyle Stark calls a "freak injury." (The Pirates have also lost not one but two minor league catchers, Tony Sanchez and Eric Fryer, after they were hit in the face with pitches, and outfield prospect Starling Marte missed time with a hand injury.)

Hernandez hit terribly in April and May but pretty well in June and July, so it's a shame to lose him now.
