X-rays negative on Donald's hand

GOODYEAR, ARIZ.: Jason Donald's sore left hand turned out to be only a bruinse.

After the Indians' third baseman was struck in the hand in the second inning with a fastball thrown by White Sox starter Gavin Floyd, he stayed in the game to play third but was removed for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the third. He was taken for X-rays, which showed fracture to any of the bones in the top of the hand.

""It was a heater from Floyd that got me pretty good in the hand,'' Donald said. ""But X-rays were negative, thankfully. Hopefully, in a day or two I can play again.''
