This was understandably lost in the concern regarding Will Middlebrooks‘ wrist, but Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston passes along word that Jonny Gomes required three stitches in his left knee after he banged into the left field fence during last night’s game against the Orioles.
It appears Gomes suffered the injury when he made an unsuccessful attempt to rob Chris Davis of a two-run home run in the sixth inning. He’s considered day-to-day, so it shouldn’t keep him out of action for long.
Gomes, who homered off left-hander Zach Britton last night, is expected to serve as Boston’s primary left fielder this season. The 32-year-old landed a two-year, $10 million deal from the Red Sox over the winter after batting .262/.377/.491 with 18 home runs, 47 RBI and an .868 OPS over 333 plate appearances last year with the A’s.
