Devers (quadriceps) is batting second and playing third base Saturday against the Rays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. As expected, the star third baseman returns to action after missing a couple games with left quadriceps soreness. The injury is still worth monitoring, though, as such issues can linger and affect one's performance if not fully healed. In 12 games since the All-Star break, Devers has hit .325 with five home runs and 10 RBI.
Devers (quadriceps) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against the Rays, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. Devers missed the last two games after he suffered a quadriceps injury in Wednesday's nightcap against the Blue Jays. However, manager Alex Cora said that the third baseman felt good Friday, and he could have been available off the bench if needed. Devers has gone 6-for-11 with a home run, two doubles and two RBI across his last three appearances.
Devers (quadriceps) isn't starting Friday's game against the Rays, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Devers was hoping he could return for Friday's series opener in Tampa Bay, but he'll be out of the lineup for at least one more game due to left quadriceps tightness. Jonathan Arauz will start at the hot corner and bat ninth.
Devers (quadriceps) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Heading into the series with Toronto, manager Alex Cora was already planning on resting Devers for Thursday's finale, and that decision was made even easier after the third baseman departed the second half of Wednesday's doubleheader with a tight left quad. Cora downplayed the injury afterward and indicated Devers would return to action Friday in Tampa Bay, but fantasy managers will want to verify as much when Boston releases its lineup for that game. Bobby Dalbec will shift over from first base to cover the hot corner in Devers' stead Thursday.
Devers exited the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against Toronto with tightness in his left quadricep, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. He went 4-for-7 with two doubles and a run scored between the two contests before leaving the nightcap. Manager Alex Cora said he and the team are hopeful that Devers will be able to return to the lineup Friday, when the Red Sox kick off a series at Tampa Bay. Devers was already in line for a scheduled day off in Thursday's series finale with the Blue Jays, so the injury doesn't seem to be a major concern at the moment.
