Travis Shaw Likely Out Tuesday With Left Hand Injury

Red Sox third-baseman Travis Shaw is likely to miss Tuesday's contest against the Colorado Rockies with an injury to his left hand (specifically the "web" area between his thumb and forefinger). While the team is characterizing the injury as "minor"—look under 'Eduardo Rodriguez' for the credibility of the Red Sox medical staff. Shaw was seen leaving Fenway yesterday wearing a "brace" on the left hand. If he cannot go tomorrow, look for Josh Rutledge to take over at the hot corner.
