Diamondbacks Top Prospect Suffers Broken Clavicle

The Arizona Diamondbacks top prospect suffered a broken clavicle while playing in the Arizona Fall League.

The recovery timeline for this type of injury is usually around 6-8 weeks of rest and rehab, so Jordan Lawlar's time in the AFL this season is now obviously over.
The good news, is that Lawlar does not require surgery and should be fully healthy for spring training next February.   

The twenty-year-old top prospect was tearing it up in Arizona, smacking an impressive .997 OPS across 47 plate appearances. He's quickly turning into one of the best position-playing prospects in the game. 

Lawlar was the sixth overall pick of the 2021 MLB Draft by the Diamondbacks.

This past season, spread across several different levels in the D-Backs system, Lawlar slashed .303/.401/.509, with 16 home runs, 62 RBIs, 39 stolen bases and 98 runs scored across 100 games.
