Rafael Devers will be out of the lineup for the second straight game Tuesday when the Boston Red Sox take on the Tampa Bay Rays.
Manager Ron Roenicke’s reasoning for leaving the third baseman out of the lineup Monday was to rest his ankle, which was “a little iffy” after lunging toward first base in Sunday’s walk-off win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
And though he’ll sit out again there isn’t a lot of concern over the injury. And Roenicke provided a small update on his progress.
“Pretty good,” Roenicke told reporters during his Zoom pregame press conference. “(Devers) went out and did some hitting in the cage, took some ground balls today, ran a little bit. So he’s doing way better. We weren’t quite sure where he was going to be at after last night but a lot better today.”
Hopefully we see Devers starting again soon.
