Wagner out six weeks with broken hand


According to SoxProspects sources, PawSox catcher Mark Wagner broke his hand on a foul ball in Thursday's game against Indianapolis, and will require surgery next week that will keep him out of the lineup for six weeks. Wagner was pulled from the game mid at-bat in the sixth inning for pinch hitter Lars Anderson, and was sent to Red Sox team doctors this morning to have his hand examined. The catcher was hitting .222 through sixteen games in Triple-A this season. Going forward, look for Dusty Brown to see more time at backstop in Pawtucket, coupled with the likely activation of Gustavo Molina from the disabled list and possible addition of Brian Peterson from extended spring training.
