CHICAGO -- Tim Anderson, the White Sox top pick in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft and the team's No. 3 prospect, will miss the next four to six weeks with a fracture in his right wrist.

Anderson sustained the injury approximately 10 days ago when he was hit by a pitch, according to White Sox director of player development Nick Capra, but continued to play until the wrist slowly got worse. X-rays showed a fracture that will not require surgery, but he will be checked periodically to see how the wrist is healing.

The 21-year-old was hitting .298 with six homers, seven triples and 18 doubles, to go with 10 stolen bases and 48 runs, for Class A Winston-Salem at the time the fracture was discovered.
