Red Sox manager Alex Cora provides grim update on star’s injury

During the Boston Red Sox’s 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday at PNC Park, Alex Cora’s team suffered another injury that will negatively impact their campaign.

First baseman Triston Casas left the game in the first inning after taking a walk. The team announced during the game that he was dealing with rib discomfort.

According to Cora, there’s some concern over the injury and Casas is getting imagining done.

“No. He’s not doing OK,” Cora told the media (transcribed by Chris Cotillo). “They’re checking on him right now. You got the report from everybody so they’re checking on him. We’ll know more over the course of the night.”

If Boston’s offense is without Casas, Trevor Story, Tyler O’Neill and Rafael Devers, there aren’t many bats that inspire much confidence in the lineup. They’ll need players like Masataka Yosida, who hit a two-run home run on Saturday, to step up in a major way.

Casas had started all 22 of the Red Sox’s games so far this year, hitting .244 with an .850 OPS and six home runs.
