AUBURN, Ala. - Casey McElroy will miss the start of the 2010 baseball season after learning he has fractured a finger on his right hand during a preseason practice, Auburn head baseball coach John Pawlowski announced on Wednesday.

McElroy started 56 games at short for Auburn last season, the only infielder to start every game last year. Named a Freshman All-American by Louisville Slugger, he hit .286 with seven home runs and 35 RBI, collected 13 doubles and a .376 on base percentage, both of which ranked in the top five on the team.

No timetable has been set for his return.
