Jonny Gomes Cuts Knee, Receives Stitches After Crashing Into Outfield Fence

Will Middlebrooks‘ injury dominated the headlines following Wednesday’s game against the Orioles, but he wasn’t the only member of the Red Sox who came away from the spring training contest a little banged up.

Jonny Gomes banged into the outfield fence and cut his knee, which required three stitches, according to manager John Farrell. The minor injury presumably occurred when Gomes was trying to rob Chris Davis‘ two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning.

“As tough as he is, he mentioned, ‘Gomes 1, The Outfield Fence 0,'” Farrell said of his outfielder.

Gomes is listed as day-to-day, according to the Sox skipper.
