"They took an X-ray and it looked like he broke one of the bones," Pirates head coach Kevin Willard told AM970 The Answer postgame, according to Adam Zagoria of NJ Advance Media. "We won't know the extent of the timeline until we get back and get an MRI (Monday). But ... it's a broken wrist, so six-to-eight weeks we're looking at, probably."
