Hamilton to miss 6-8 weeks with broken bone

Texas slugger Josh Hamilton is expected to miss six to eight weeks after fracturing his upper right arm while trying to score from third on a popup that didn't leave the infield.
Hamilton tagged up on a foul popup near the Detroit dugout in
the first inning Tuesday. Third baseman Brandon Inge and catcher
Victor Martinez both ran after the ball, leaving the plate
unprotected when Inge made the catch.
Martinez was able to take a throw from Inge while scampering
back in time to tag out a diving Hamilton.
Hamilton left the game after that, and the team says he has a
non-displaced fracture of the humerus bone at the top of his arm,
just below the shoulder. Hamilton isn't expected to swing a bat for
a month.
