Phillies Infielder To Miss 10-to-12 Weeks

As if things haven't been bad enough for the Philadelphia Phillies, now they've lost their second baseman Jean Segura to a broken finger, suffered during Tuesday night's game. 

Segura was hit in the hand while attempting a bunt in the 7th inning. The 32-year-old will now need surgery, and be out from 10-to-12 weeks.

This is another bad blow for the Phils, as Segura has been one of the team's more consistent hitters this season, batting .275 with a .731 OPS, 6 HR, 19 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  

In his stead, the Phils will likely use a combination of rookie Bryson Stott and Johan Camargo in the short term, while they await the return of Didi Gregorious, rehabbing from a knee problem. 

Just another tough break for manager Joe Girardi, whose team has now lost 5 straight games to fall to 21-29, as Girardi is telling anyone who'll listen that he isn't worried about his job.
