Eric Thames placed on the 10-day disabled list

Eric Thames was placed on the 10-day disabled list after being diagnosed with a torn UCL in his left thumb.

Fantasy Impact

Thames could be out awhile as torn UCLs in the thumb typically take at least six weeks to recover if surgery isn't required. Keep an eye on updates to see whether or not Thames ends up getting the surgery.

Eric Thames (thumb) could miss two months with torn ligament in thumb

Eric Thames (thumb) could miss up to two months after an MRI revealed a torn ligament in his thumb.

Fantasy Impact

This is a brutal blow for Thames, who was off to a blistering start with seven home runs in his first 74 plate appearances. Ryan Braun may see more time at first base, clearing up room for Domingo Santana to play regularly. Jesus Aguilar should also see more time at first base.

Eric Thames (thumb) will get MRI Wednesday

Eric Thames is scheduled to get an MRI on his injured thumb Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Thames left the game after making a diving play on defense in the eighth. Manager Craig Counsell said he was "A little concerned" about the injury. Sounds like it could be ligament damage. We'll have to wait for MRI results to know the true extent of the damage, but plan on being without Thames for the next few days at least.
