Last year's first overall draft pick Mickey Moniak is listed as day to day, according to a source, after injuring a finger on a play at the plate in Lakewood's loss to Hagerstown at home on Wednesday.

While trying to score from first base on a double by designated hitter Brett Barbier, the 18-year-old was gunned out and hurt his hand in the process.

The lefty batting outfielder played another inning in the game before being removed from action.

Moniak was 0-for-1 with a walk in the contest.  Overall in 11 games, Moniak is batting .283 with four doubles, a triple, 11 RBI and four stolen bases.

The 2-1 loss on Wednesday afternoon was the finale of the BlueClaws' first home stand of the season.  They'll hit the road for a week then return home to FirstEnergy Park for a four-game series against Kannapolis starting Thursday, April 27th.
