Cleveland Indians right-hander Zach Plesac will be placed on the 10-day injured list after sustaining a non-displaced fracture on his right thumb.

Plesac injured the thumb after his start against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday in a freak incident. Manager Terry Francona said the injury occurred when Plesac was “rather aggressively ripping off his shirt.”

Plesac caught his thumb on the chair at his locker. By Monday, it was badly swollen and the Indians sent him for X-rays and the fracture was detected.

The 26-year-old Plesac is slated to meet with a hand specialist on Wednesday.

Plesac, who is 4-3 with a 4.14 ERA in 10 starts this season, retired the first nine batters he faced Sunday against the Twins. But he was roughed up for five runs (three earned) and five hits in the fourth inning before being pulled with two outs in the frame.
