BY AP • July 6, 2017

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts left Thursday night's game in the first inning after being hit just above the right wrist by a pitch from Jake Faria of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Bogaerts remained in the game to run, but was replaced at shortstop by Tzu-Wei Lin when the Red Sox took the field.

The Red Sox called the injury a right-hand contusion and said it will be further evaluated later Thursday.
