Brendan Ryan took a pitch off of his right index finger on a bunt attempt on Sunday, but there’s every reason to think he’ll be able to play on Tuesday night in Cincinnati.

The pitch from Jorge De La Rosa caught Ryan on the fingernail, and he had visible bruising at the spot of the impact. But he expressed little worry about the situation. Ryan has missed time recently due to discomfort in his left pinkie finger, but this appears to be a less serious situation.

“It just got me on the fingertip,” Ryan said. “I didn’t even have a choice. I was out before I even said anything.”

Said manager Tony La Russa: “I think he’ll be all right for Tuesday.”
