Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Has thumb examined after Thursday's game

Bogaerts received tests on his right thumb following Thursday's victory over the Blue Jays, Scott Lauber of ESPN Boston reports.

Bogaerts played the entire game Thursday, but he clearly had some discomfort after a head-first slide into second base late in the game. The current plan is for the club to evaluate him again on Friday, so specific information pertaining to Bogaerts' condition should be available then. If Bogaerts has to miss time, look for Brock Holt to fill in at shortstop.
