St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Paul DeJong could miss 4-8 weeks after suffering a left hand fracture back on May 17th, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Rick Hummel.

Dejong said that he heard he could miss “four to eight” weeks due to the injury.

“That’s a huge range,” he said. “I’m just going to take it week by week. Ask me next week. Hopefully, I’ll be close to swinging.”

DeJong was hit with a pitch from Philadelphia’s Luis Garcia and says he didn’t even know that he was hurt by the play.

“The sound threw me off. It sounded so loud like it hit the bat,” DeJong explained. “But the worst was the steal in the ninth (by Cesar Hernandez). I tagged him on the leg and I said, ‘(bleep).’ said DeJong. “It got progressively worse after that.”
