After Saturday’s victory, Red Sox second baseman exits with a contusion.

Enmanuel Valdez, the second baseman, exited the Red Sox’s 7-2 victory over the Angels on Saturday due to a contusion in his left thumb.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, Valdez dove into second base while jogging the bases. On a pickoff attempt, Angels first baseman Miguel Sanó fell on Valdez’s arm in a sort of rundown between first and second base.

Valdez didn’t not return for the top of the seventh inning. Pablo Reyes replaced him at second base.

After the game on Saturday, manager Alex Cora stated of Valdez, “He should be OK.” “He will not begin work tomorrow. I believe that will be beneficial to him. He should be alright; we’ll check on him first thing tomorrow morning.

Three of the Red Sox’s infielders are already on the disabled list: Trevor Story (shoulder surgery), Romy Gonzalez (left wrist sprain), and Vaughn Grissom (left hamstring strain).

In 13 games this season, the 25-year-old Valdez is 5-for-39 (.128) with a home run, double, six RBIs, six runs, three walks, and thirteen strikeouts. Of Boston’s fifteen games, he has started twelve at second base.


Slugger for the Red Sox Isn’t Buying Into Ted Williams’ “Myth” Triston Casas

It’s probable that you have an opinion on the infamous “red seat” in the right-field bleachers if you have ever visited Fenway Park.

You’re in for a treat if you have no idea what we’re talking about.

According to legend, Ted Williams reportedly hit a home run that ended up to that seat, which is located around 500 feet away from home plate. If you didn’t already know, it’s painted red to stand out in a sea of green, and it’s one of the most divisive pieces of baseball fodder.

Triston Casas refuses to accept it.

In the first inning of the Red Sox’s victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday, Casas hit a home run, hitting the ball as far as he is able to. Although it only reached a height of 429 feet, it sounded like the type of ball that might challenge Teddy Ballgame’s alleged explosion.


“That’s my best pull, for sure,” Casas told reporters postgame. “I had one hit harder — exit velocity wise — last year, but that Ted Williams seat is starting to feel more and more like a myth to me.

He said the quiet part out loud.

David Ortiz, another famed Red Sox slugger, has also questioned the legitimacy of the red seat, once trying to reach it by smashing baseballs in its direction with a metal bat. He failed. Rowdy Tellez hit a ball 505 feet in that general direction when he was with the Toronto Blue Jays back in 2019, but didn’t even come close.

It usually takes the feeling of missing the mark to fully believe that the red seat might just be a myth.

“It’s looking more and more out of reach as I hit balls in that direction,” Casas said. “… It felt good initially, but I was kind of demoralized when I saw where it landed.

“It’s crazy.”
