Red Sox breathe sigh of relief on Gonzalez
The Red Sox have one less thing to worry about, as follow-up X-rays on Alex Gonzalez’s right wrist taken this morning came back negative, according to the Boston Herald.
The shortstop was hit by a Kerry Wood fastball on Friday night and given a fluoroscan exam, which was inconclusive. The Red Sox were a little concerned when they saw a line in the flouroscan. But all worries were pushed aside with this morning’s more comprehensive test.
The Sox can ill-afford to lose Gonzalez for any lenght of time, given the health concerns for backup shorstops Jed Lowrie and Nick Green.
