AUBURN, Ala. - Outfielder Justin Fradejas injured his left hand and will be limited to a pinch-running role for the Auburn baseball team for the next several weeks. The right-handed hitting junior hurt his hand while swinging the bat during Auburn's season-opening game against Southeast Missouri.

In his only starting appearance, Fradejas was 1-for-3 with a home run. He was also used as a pinch runner in the bottom of the 10th on Saturday, scoring the game-winning run on Creede Simpson's single.

Auburn (2-1) returns to the field this weekend when it plays host to Boston College, Florida Atlantic and Missouri during the Auburn Classic. Prior to Saturday's Auburn-Missouri game at 3pm, Auburn will induct Tim Hudson, Bo Jackson, Gregg Olson and Frank Thomas into its Wall of Fame.
