Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall has been placed on the 10-day damaged list with a broken right index finger, the team reported.
The move is retroactive to Tuesday, the team said.
Chisenhall was hit by a pitch Monday during a spring training game. He will be out four to six weeks, according to several reports and first reported by The Athletic.
Chisenhall, 30, signed as a free agent in November after playing his first eight seasons with the Cleveland Indians. He was expected to start in the right field while Gregory Polanco is working his way back from shoulder injury.
The team also announced Thursday that outfielder Melky Cabrera has been added to the route.
Pittsburgh opens the season Thursday in Cincinnati.
