Brian Anderson injury update: Marlins third baseman (hand) could miss rest of season

It appears like Brian Anderson’s 2019 season might be over.

The Marlins third baseman and outfielder left a 19-11 win against the Phillies on Friday after a pitch struck and fractured his left hand. He spoke with reporters after the contest, and his words indicated he might be done for the year.

“I think I’ve had a similar injury before. I think it was back in middle school,” Anderson said. “I broke my hand. It was a different hand. But it should be pretty straightforward. (I’ll) Hopefully be back in six weeks. I’m not exactly sure the timetable yet. We haven’t really seen the hand specialist yet.”

Anderson, 26, entered Friday batting .261/.342/.468 and leading Miami with 20 home runs in 2019.
