On Wednesday against the Mariners, Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist was forced to leave the game with what turned out to be a dislocated left thumb. Here's more from Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune ...

That reevaluation will take place on Tuesday of next week. Zobrist sustained the injury while sliding head-first into second base. As for the extent of the injury, the Rays at present are saying nothing more than Zobrist will miss "some" time. Obviously, much depends upon what further examination turns up in terms of any structural damage.

This season, the 32-year-old Zobrist is batting .260/.352/.364 in 180 plate appearances. For his career, he owns an OPS+ of 116 across parts of nine major-league seasons. Over the course of that career, Zobrist has logged significant time at every position but catcher. He's eligible for free agency next offseason.
