Braves’ Ynoa out after breaking hand on bench

Atlanta Braves right-hander Huascar Ynoa was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a fractured right hand suffered when he punched the dugout bench in Milwaukee on Sunday.

Manager Brian Snitker told reporters on Monday that Ynoa will be sidelined “a couple months” with the injury.

“That’s a tough one. He got frustrated after his outing [Sunday] and punched the seat in the dugout and broke his hand. It’s going to be a couple months that he’ll be down, then we’ll have to get him built back up. I hate to see that. The young guy was doing so well. That’s a big loss for us,” he told reporters, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Ynoa allowed a season-high five runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out six over 4⅓ innings Sunday in the Braves’ 10-9 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. He had surrendered just one earned run over his previous three outings.

Ynoa has impressed this season with a 4-2 record and 3.02 ERA in eight starts for a Braves team without All-Star right-hander Mike Soroka, who has been sidelined by an Achilles injury.

Soroka, who tore his Achilles tendon last August, had a setback last week and underwent exploratory surgery on Monday. There is no timetable for his return.

The Braves recalled right-hander Edgar Santana from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move.
