Yankees: Brown to go under knife

Saturday, September 4, 2004

Kevin Brown will have surgery on his left hand on Sunday, according to published reports. He broke the fifth metacarpal bones in his non-throwing hand Friday night after hitting a wall in frustration. Furthermore, the team is reportedly reviewing Brown's contract to determine if a self-inflicted injury might void the guaranteed portion of Brown's seven-year, $105 million deal.

The Yankees are obviously not happy with Brown. He was struggling along with the rest of the Yankee starters, but he is also a big-game pitcher that the Bronx Bombers will sorely miss. Their best option to replace Brown in the rotation, should a replacement be required, would probably be Esteban Loaiza, who was acquired at the trade deadline and has made a habit of being booed off the mound after poor performances ever since donning the pinstripes
