Padres' Tommy Pham out 4-6 weeks with broken hand

San Diego Padres manager Jayce Tingler confirmed during a Monday appearance on Sirius XM that outfielder Tommy Pham is expected to be out 4-6 weeks with a broken hamate bone in his hand.

"Knowing Tommy, knowing his pain tolerance, I think we're hoping, is there a chance that that gets sped up a week, two weeks? Somewhere in there just, knowing who Tommy is, is there a chance, towards the end of the year where hopefully if we're in the playoffs, to give us a shot," Tingler added.

Pham suffered the setback in Sunday's game versus the Arizona Diamondbacks during a ninth-inning at-bat. In his first season with the club, the 32-year-old hit .207 with two home runs and nine RBI across 23 games.

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
