|Detroit's Fielder Down with Injury|
Wednesday, May 9th, 2012
Disappointing news today for Detroit Tigers fans. Prince Fielder was hurt running the bases in their game against the Seattle Mariners and has torn ankle ligaments. Team trainers were hesitant to predict a date for return but said it was likely the injury will keep the first baseman out at least 4 weeks.
This season Fielder is hitting .248 with 27 hits, 1 home run, 11 RBIs, scored 19 runs and played in 31 games.
