Reds' Morris out four to six weeks

April 16, 1992

First baseman Hal Morris broke a bone behind the knuckle of his right index finger when he was hit by a pitch and will be lost to the Cincinnati Reds for four to six weeks.

Morris finished second to Terry Pendleton for the National League batting title last year.

Reds All-Star shortstop Barry Larkin twisted his right knee and bruised his left arm while chasing a pop fly. It isn't known whether he will miss any games.

Sanders' baseball contract expires July 31.
