TORONTO - Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia is expected to miss about six weeks after fracturing his right hand in the second inning of Wednesday’s game against the Oakland A's.

Arencibia appeared to injure the hand on a foul ball by Brandon Inge during Oakland’s eight-run inning.

The 26-year-old finished the inning behind the plate but Jeff Mathis batted for him in the bottom of the second.

Arencibia is batting .242 with 16 homers and 50 RBIs so far this season.
