Injured Hawpe to miss World Baseball Classic
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Colorado outfielder Brad Hawpe will miss the World Baseball Classic because of a left finger injury.

Hawpe had four stitches on his pinkie finger after being spiked in the first inning against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday. He was accidentally stepped on while running back into second base in the first inning against the Angels. There is no damage to ligaments or tendons.

Hawpe, a career .282 hitter with 88 homers and 341 RBI in his four major league seasons, was supposed to join the USA Team this week. He is expected to participate in baseball activities within a week.
