The Red Sox are in the midst of an ugly losing streak and will try to right the ship Tuesday without three of their players.

Boston opens a brief two-game set against the Philadelphia Phillies at Fenway Park and look to get back on track without Andrew Benintendi, Christian Vazquez and Jackie Bradley Jr.

Prior to first pitch, manager Ron Roenicke provided updates on the trio.

Benintendi sprained his rib cage and was placed on the 10-day injured list Aug. 12. Roenicke believed the left fielder would be out longer than the 10 days.

And nothing has changed on that front.

“He’s going to be out for a while,” Roenicke told reporters during his pregame Zoom press conference.

As for Vazquez, who’s dealing with a sore heel, the skipper noted he wanted to stay away from him today. The catcher told Roenicke he is feeling better, though.

Bradley will miss his third straight game with what Roenicke said is a sore wrist. The skipper hopes his center fielder will return Wednesday.

First pitch is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
