Rafael Devers Leaves Game With Hamstring Injury
Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers could be headed for the DL after leaving Saturday night's game against the Minnesota Twins with a left hamstring injury.
Devers felt some discomfort in his hamstring after his bunt hit in the bottom of the first and then aggravated it while rounding second base on an RBI double by Eduardo Nunez in the eighth.
“He said he felt it on the bunt early. He felt tight, then it grabbed rounding second," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said after the game. "So he’s down there in the trainer’s room. Obviously, we’ll see tomorrow morning when he comes in, but we’ll see.”
The Red Sox won the game 10-4. Devers went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI, extending his hitting streak to five games.
Devers went on the DL just before the All-Star break with inflammation in his left shoulder. He returned July 21.
