Eric Hosmer’s Fenway Park debut as a member of the Red Sox was cut short Tuesday night.
During a fourth-inning at-bat, the Boston first baseman fouled a ball off his left knee. Hosmer was looked at by a team trainer and manager Alex Cora. He finished his at-bat and was struck out by Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Charlie Morton.
The Red Sox announced Hosmer had a left knee contusion injury, per NESN broadcast. Bobby Dalbec subbed on for Hosmer in the fifth inning, cutting Hosmer’s night short.
