According to the Indians, the 26-year-old Hill underwent surgery on his right wrist to repair an injury to his lunate bone, which is located in the mid-carpal joint, as a result of the accident. The surgery went "as expected" and Hill is currently resting comfortably in Tulsa.

Taking to social media on Tuesday, the right-handed Hill shared a picture of himself in his hospital bed as well as images of a badly beaten up car.
