Eric Hosmer could miss six weeks for Royals with stress fracture in hand

The pitch that injured Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer connected with his right hand on July 20 in Boston, and induced a spate of swelling around the area. That swelling, according to Hosmer, camouflaged the underlying damage, a non-displaced stress fracture of the third metacarpal, a vexing result that could sideline him up to six weeks.
