MLB Note - Detroit Tigers Wilson, Alex

Sep 24, 2017 - 7:45 AM RHP Alex Wilson suffered a non-displaced fracture near the right ankle Saturday night when struck by a line drive off the bat of 1B Joe Mauer. He tried to throw a pitch after getting up and testing but crumpled to the ground after that. "Honestly, all I thought was that my foot was numb," Wilson said, "and then it kinda felt warm. I was walking around the mound to see whether or not I was going to be able to go. I squatted down, and was able to do that. Of course, it wasn't on the weight-bearing bone. So, really, it had no effect. Then I tried to throw a pitch, and I felt a pop. And, obviously, that was the end of the night. And, that's when the pain really started shooting through." Surgery is not required but the right foot will be in a cast for 4-to-6 weeks and then strengthening will be involved.
