Broken finger sends James Loney to Rays’ disabled list

1 Comment

Rays first baseman James Loney has been placed on the disabled list with a broken left middle finger.

Initially the Rays diagnosed Loney with a sprain, but further exams revealed a fracture and he’s expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Logan Forsythe is starting at first base today, but as usual the Rays figure to mix and match a lot. Loney hasn’t produced much offensively for a second straight season, hitting .275 with two homers and a .698 OPS in 30 games.
