Gonzalez (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. The move comes as no surprise, as manager Alex Cora said Sunday that the utility man would likely require a trip to the IL. The transaction is retroactive to Tuesday, making Gonzalez eligible to reinstated July 23. With that said, it seems very possible that the 32-year-old will require additional time to heal.
Manager Alex Cora said Sunday after the Red Sox's 5-4 loss to the Phillies that Gonzalez will likely require a stint on the injured list after aggravating a hamstring issue in the contest, Sean McAdam of BostonSportsJournal.com reports. Gonzalez went hitless in his lone plate appearance before being pulled from the contest in the second inning. Given that Gonzalez exited Monday's game against the Angels with hamstring tightness before returning to action for Friday's series opener with Philadelphia, the Red Sox plan to take a more conservative approach with the veteran utility man this time around.
Gonzalez was removed from Sunday's game against the Phillies with an apparent hamstring injury, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. The utility player was unavailable for a few games with a hamstring injury and came up limp after grounding out in his first at-bat Sunday. Details about Gonzalez's condition should become available during or following the game. Bobby Dalbec entered to play first base.
Gonzalez (hamstring) has no restrictions entering Friday's series opener against the Phillies, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. The veteran utility man was unavailable Tuesday and Wednesday versus the Angels while dealing with hip tightness, but he's good to go after Thursday's scheduled off day. Gonzalez will isn't in the lineup Friday but will be available off the bench.
Gonzalez (hamstring) will be unavailable for Wednesday's game, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. Gonzalez missed Tuesday's game, which opened up playing time for Danny Santana, but he left that game with a quadriceps injury. This leaves Boston shorthanded heading into an afternoon contest Wednesday. It's nearly impossible to get a player from Triple-A Worcester to the west coast in time for a 1:07 pm (local time) start.
