A fracture for Matt Carpenter

A fracture for Matt Carpenter


New York Yankees player Matt Carpenter will be out indefinitely after fracturing his left foot after hitting a foul ball Monday against the Mariners in Seattle.&nbsp ;

The incident occurred in the first round. It was a second strike for Carpenter, who ended his at bat on the next shot when he was moped. He didn't return to the field afterward.

Carpenter is certainly no stranger to the Yankees' stellar season, which is 71-39 in first place in the East Division of the American. The 36-year-old American batted .305, hitting 15 homers and producing 37 runs in 47 games.

The final moments were more difficult, however, since the Bronx Bombers had lost their five most recent outings before defeating the Mariners 9-4. They must manage without Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton, both injured.
