Yankees prospect Estevan Florial will wear a cast for "a few weeks," according to Aaron Boone, after suffering a non-displaced fracture in his right wrist during Saturday's game.
An MRI revealed that there is more damage than initially known from X-rays, but it won't affect Florial's timetable.
"He had a second little fracture in there, which, in the grand scheme of things, is inconsequential because it heals along with the other one," Boone told reporters on Monday. "It's very similar. It should be - I think from a prognosis, it's very similar from what we anticipated, after getting all the images and after seeing the hand specialist."
There's no exact timetable for Florial's return. He can begin rehabbing once the cast is removed. Florial was injured colliding with the outfield wall on Saturday.
The 21-year-old center fielder, ranked as the Yankees' top prospect by MLB Pipeline, was limited to 84 games last season, mostly with High-A Tampa, after a hamate-bone fracture in the same wrist he injured on Saturday.
It's a rough setback for Florial, who was having a strong Spring Training. He hit .355 with a .945 OPS, one homer, two doubles, four RBI, seven runs and five steals in 13 games.
