Vlad out of lineup, crack found in hand

Designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero was out of the starting lineup Friday with an injured right hand, which X-rays found a crack in.  His batting cage session Friday afternoon did not go well and manager Buck Showalter said he is not sure if Guerrero will return to the field tomorrow.  Whether this will force Guerrero onto the disabled list remains to be seen.  In his absence, Nolan Reimold will DH.  Guerrero first sustained the injury to his right hand after getting hit by a pitch in Boston prior to the All-Star break.
