From Mandy Bell:
“We know that there’s a fracture [somewhere],” said Indians manager Terry Francona. “Other than that, he’s being evaluated over at the hospital right now. We’ll know more, I hope, in a couple hours. We’re not even sure if he can travel home with us. We’re trying to work through some things. We’ll find out more hopefully pretty soon.”
