Trevor Story was left out of the lineup during the Red Sox final game against the New York Yankees on Sunday night, and missed a second straight game Monday with Boston facing the Detroit Tigers.
But Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who told reporters Sunday that Story had flu-like symptoms, offered more of a detailed timeframe for the second baseman’s return.
“He feels weak,” Cora said after Boston’s eventual 3-1 loss to the Tigers, as seen on NESN’s postgame coverage. “Hopefully, he can come here tomorrow and get moving around. I’m not sure he’s going to play tomorrow. We’re trying to shoot for the last day of the series.”
The Red Sox-Tigers final matchup of the series will be at 1:10 p.m. ET on Wednesday, which sounds like the expected return date for the Boston’s biggest offseason addition.
