Hunter Jr.'s dad, Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter, confirmed the injury to ESPN, and said the injury could sideline Hunter for six to eight months.

"It's a fracture, and it will require surgery," Hunter said. "He's a tough boy. He's distraught right now, he's never had an injury before. I told him he'll bounce back. I know he will."
