According to reports from Carrie Muskat and Gordon Wittenmyer, Almora broke the hamate bone in his left hand and should be able to return to baseball activities in three-four weeks. Almora will likely be sidelined until late-May.

Albert Almora did not say how he broke the hamate bone in his left hand, but according to Gordon Wittenmyer it happened swinging a bat on Thursday.
