Ohio State senior second baseman Ryan Cypret has surgery

Sustaining a broken finger while attempting a sacrifice bunt in Ohio State's 1-0 loss to Oregon on Sunday, in a stabilizing effort, senior second baseman Ryan Cypret had successful surgery on Friday.

Following Ohio State's 7-2 loss to Indiana, Buckeye head coach Greg Beals informed media that Cypret is expected to be out 10 days, the co-captain to miss the Big Ten Tournament but be available for the NCAA Tournament if the Buckeyes were to make the field of 64.

From Olentangy, Ohio, the fifth-year senior has appeared in 189 games for Ohio State, 163 since the beginning of his sophomore season, all starts. Through 51 contests this season, Cypret is carrying a .255 average, collecting seven doubles, three triples and tying for the team lead with four home runs.

In Cypret's absence, freshman Troy Kuhn has manned second base. In three starts since Cypret's departure, Kuhn is 3-for-11 with a run and an RBI, batting .286 on the season in 77 at-bats.

Ohio State seeks a share of the Big Ten championship on Saturday in a season-ending contest with Indiana. The Hoosiers currently lead the Big Ten at 16-7, one game in front of 15-8 Ohio State. If the Buckeyes were to claim their 16th conference championship, they would also receive the No. 1 seed in next week's Big Ten Tournament to be played at Target Field, the home of the Minnesota Twins.
