1B,2B - MIL - MiLB
The Pirates placed Josh VanMeter on the 10-day IL on Friday with a fractured left right finger.
VanMeter had left Wednesday's game with left hand discomfort, and the injury turned out to be a serious one. He wasn't relevant in mixed leagues, as he was slashing just .214/.280/.357, but he did have three home runs and two steals in 107 plate appearances. He's largely a replaceable asset, even in NL-only formats, so there's no need to stash him while he is on the IL.
After dealing with discomfort in his left hand, Josh VanMeter was removed from Wednesday's 8-4 win over the Dodgers in the bottom of the sixth per Jason Mackey on Twitter.
The second baseman is currently considered day-to-day. VanMeter was 1-for-3 with a first inning RBI single before leaving Wednesday's contest.
