Brennan Boesch Fractures Wrist On Attempted Catch

The Boesch Era of Boston baseball may have just ended. In the third inning of today's split-squad game against the Rays, Red Sox OF Brennan Boesch fractured his right wrist while making an attempted catch on a sinking fly ball. Boesch probably had only a marginal shot at heading North for Opening Day, but he was delivering a surprisingly good Spring (.303 BA). Ironically, Boesch drove in the first—and so far, only—Red Sox run in today's game.
