Titans Lose McArthur for Approximately Six Weeks

Feb. 6, 2007

Fullerton, Calif. - It was announced today by Cal State Fullerton baseball Head Coach George Horton that the Titans will be without the services of senior third baseman Evan McArthur for approximately six weeks.

The right-handed hitting McArthur suffered a fracture of the hamate bone in his left hand that will require surgery. The procedure is set for 9:00 a.m on Feb. 8, at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthapedic Clinic in Westchester, Calif., where Dr. Norman Zemel, a hand and wrist specialist, will remove the hamate bone.

The small hand bone is located at the base of the palm beneath the fourth and fifth finger and is known for being "hook-shaped." Fractures of the bone are usually hairline fractures and are most common in baseball players and golfers.

McArthur played through the injury this past weekend in a three-game series with nationally-ranked Stanford, posting a .308 average (4-for-13) with a double and 3 RBI before he left Sunday's game prematurely in the eighth inning.

The Medford, Oregon-native's approximate return coincides with the Titans' three-game set with cross-town rival Long Beach State, Mar. 23-25 at Blair Field. Horton has named Senior Bryan Harris as McArthur's probable replacement this weekend.
