PHILADELPHIA - Outfielder Von Hayes of the Philadelphia Phillies sufered a broken right wrist last night when hit by a pitch from Cincinnati's Tom Browning and is out for the rest of the season.
Hayes, who in the past week has been rumored going to Cincinnati for infielder Mariano Duncan, was batting in the sixth inning when a Browning pitch broke the ulna bone in the wrist.
Hayes went to first base after he was hit, but was removed from the game and sent to a hospital when the Phillies took the field for the seventh. The hospital reported the break and General Manager Lee Thomas disclosed that the outfielder was done for the season.
Hayes only recently emerged from a long slump, hitting .395 in his last 12 games. That upped his average to .227. He has no home runs and 18 runs batted in.
He becomes a 10-year player July 25, and since he has played five years with the same team earns the right to veto any trades.
Thomas said the Phillies have recalled two outfielders, Sil Campusano and Wes Chamberlain, from Scranton-Wilkes-Barre team in the International League.
