Brad Eldred will be out for six to eight weeks with a broken
right hand, the Hiroshima Carp announced Monday.

The first baseman will need to rest for four weeks before he can
return to practices, it was learned after he had the hand examined at
a Hiroshima hospital the same day.

Eldred was hit by a pitch in his second plate appearance in
Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Yomiuri Giants.
