X-rays revealed no break, but Cuddyer's forearm was heavily wrapped, and he doesn't know what the immediate future holds. He said it's too early to tell whether he has to go to the disabled list.
"I was worried [about a bone being broken], no question about it, but fortunately, it's not," Cuddyer said.
Asked if he could grip the bat or throw, Cuddyer said, "Not today, maybe tomorrow."
The incident reminded Cuddyer of when he returned from a back injury in 2011 with the Twins, but three days later, then-Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie drilled him on the left wrist with a pitch. Cuddyer did not have to go on the DL then.
