Nick Hagadone Injury: Indians Pitcher To Be Sidelined For At Least 8 Weeks

After losing his temper and injuring his pitching arm by reportedly punching 'an object' last week, Cleveland Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone had successful surgery to repair his fractured left radius on Thursday and is expected to be out for at least the next two months according to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian:

The 26-year-old Hagadone was 1-0 with a 6.39 ERA in 27 appearances with the Indians this season before losing his cool and creating a big mess for both himself and his organization. While Cleveland made the interesting move to place him on the Minor League Disqualified List for his actions on Sunday, the MLBPA sharply announced it was unhappy with that decision and planned to file a grievance against the team.

With the young reliever expected to be sidelined until at least mid-September, there should be plenty of time for the league and the Indians to sort out their differences before a possible return would take place. Even so, Hagadone's poor decision-making clearly didn't score very many points with the franchise, and it shouldn't surprise anybody if his fateful July 6th outing ends up being his final appearance of 2012.
