Lucas headed to DL with non-displaced fracture in left hand; Solano being recalled

JUPITER -- Tough break for Ed Lucas.

X-rays have revealed a non-displaced fracture in his left hand and he will be heading to the disabled list according to manager Mike Redmond

Lucas had won a spot on the 25-man roster. Donovan Solano, told earlier today he was heading back to Triple A New Orleans, will be recalled to the roster.

This is his second injury this spring. He strained a quad playing against the Tigers.

But his one really hurts because he was in line to make his first Opening Day roster after spending 10 years in the minors. Lucas was struck in the hand in the eighth inning by a Scott McGregor pitch.
