Boston’s Kiké Hernández on injured list with hip strain – Boston News, Weather, Sports

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have placed Kiké Hernández on the 10-day injury list with a right hip flexor strain.

Boston made the move Wednesday night before facing the Los Angeles Angels.

The versatile Hernández has been Boston’s leadoff hitter and starting center fielder lately, but manager Alex Cora said Hernández has been dogged by pain in his hip. The veteran is hitting .209 with four home runs and 24 RBIs this season.

Hernández filled in at Tuesday night’s shortstop and made the game-ending defensive play by knocking out Kurt Suzuki on a difficult grounder.

Hernández can return on June 18. Second baseman Jonathan Arauz was called back to take his roster spot.

Christian Arroyo switched to the starting spot for the Red Sox, and Jackie Bradley Jr. took over the midfield.
