Red Sox first baseman Eric Hosmer, making his Fenway Park debut, made an early exit in the fourth inning after fouling a ball off the back of his left knee.
Manager Alex Cora offered the latest on Hosmer following the end of Tuesday’s 9-7 extra-innings loss.
“Sore, very sore,” Cora told reporters as seen on NESN postgame coverage. “It was in the back knee and he’s day-to-day. Most likely, he won’t play tomorrow. But he should be okay.”
Hosmer, who was a career .354 hitter at Fenway Park before the series opener on Tuesday, went 0-for-2 in in the contest before exiting.
As one may assume, this will most likely give infielder Bobby Dalbec the start at first in Wednesday’s series finale against the Braves.
