Oakland track and field left-hander Jesus Lusardo broke his hand while playing a video game before the start of Saturday, manager Bob Melvin told reporters on Sunday.
Melvin said that Lusado, who lost money in the 8-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles, put his hands on the table while playing the game. The track team staff determined that Luzardo could throw the ball, but X-rays showed that his pinky hairline was broken after the game.
The track and field team has included Luzardo on the injured list and recalled the left-handed Adam Kolarek from their alternate training ground.
Oakland will reschedule first baseman Matt Olson on Sunday. Olson missed three consecutive games after being hit by a left ball that bounced out of the left ball in Thursday̵
The 23-year-old Luzardo gave up 6 runs in three games against Orioles with 5 shots, 2 walks and 2 field throws, despite only getting 3 runs. He has a 1-3 record at the age of 5.7 in six games this season.
