A fracture has taken out another member of the San Francisco Giants, this time infielder Thairo Estrada.

The team announced over the holiday that the 27-year-old infielder has been placed on the 10-day injured list. Estrada was hit in the hand Sunday in the Giants’ 8-4 loss to the New York Mets.

A scan earlier this week revealed a fracture to his left hand. Giants’ manager Gabe Kapler said the team is still gathering information, but Thairo Estrada is expected to be out for four-to-six weeks.

The Giants’ second baseman has been batting .272 with 31 RBI’s and an OBP of .327 prior to the injury.

Earlier this summer, outfielder Mitch Haniger fractured his forearm after being hit by a pitch. He’s expected to be out until mid-to-late August.

The Giants got some relief though, with outfielder Mike Yastrzemski activated from the injured list. He missed 10 games with a hamstring strain before returning to the lineup Monday against the Seattle Mariners.
