Titans Lose Vasquez for at Least 6-8 Weeks

March 30, 2007

Northridge, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton first baseman Jake Vasquez suffered multiple fractures in his left wrist and hand in a collision with a runner at first base in Friday afternoon's Big West Conference opener at Cal State Northridge.

Titan Certified Athletic Trainer Rusty Baker reported that Vasquez was taken to the local hospital in Northridge and received six x-rays that revealed at least three breaks in his radial styloid, his ulnar styloid and his third metacarpal.

No definite timetable has been set for a return, but a six to eight week estimate has been given at this time. Vasquez will see Cal State Fullerton physicians later this week, and will remain with the team in Northridge the remainder of the weekend.

No replacement for Vasquez at first has been named. Both Jon Wilhite and Matt Wallach saw time there on Friday afternoon.
