C.J. Wilson Injury: Left Hand X-Rays Negative, Angels Pitcher Expected To Make Next Start

Los Angeles Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson won't miss any time after injuring his left hand in Monday night's 6-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians, according to the Los Angeles Times. The lefty attempted to field a hard-hit grounder off the dirt with his bare hand, but couldn't make the out.

Wilson left the game in the seventh inning and went to the hospital to receive treatment. The result was a bruise and X-rays taken showed no breaks. Wilson told the Times that his hand was only discolored, and manager Mike Scioscia said he doesn't expect his starting pitcher to miss his next start.

Wilson (9-9) allowed six hits and three runs during his 6.2 innings in the loss before being pulled after suffering the injury. He described his thought process during the play to ESPN's Adam Kamenetzky:

"It got me in the hand," Wilson said. "I went up to jump for it, and it hit me pretty much. If I got a little more around it, I might have caught it. We went to the hospital and checked it out, and they said it was just bruised and stuff. Maybe some blood vessels that have been busted or whatever. It's just a little discolored, but the swelling's already gone down and the grip strength's fine."
