CHICAGO â??  The pending roster decision to bring up a fifth starting pitcher changed slightly when a fastball from Mike Pelfrey smashed into the index finger of Mitch Haniger’s right hand in Seattle’s 4-3 win over the White Sox on Saturday night.

Haniger, who was attempting to bunt for a hit, left his finger a little too exposed on the bat.

“Ball ran in on me, got my finger and smashed it against the bat on the underneath part,” he said. “Usually I get my finger behind the bat and I just got around it. It was a two-seamer in. It’s unfortunate.”

It forced him to come out of the game because he couldn’t grip the baseball while warming up.
