After drawing a one-out walk in the top of the first inning on Saturday night, Triston Casas did not emerge from the dugout to take first base for the bottom of the inning.

The Red Sox moved Pablo Reyes to third and moved Bobby Dalbec to first.

While the club has yet to make an announcement, their former infielder and current NESN broadcaster Will Middlebrooks weighed in on X (formerly Twitter):

“I definitely saw Casas clutching his stomach after the 3-1 hack. Oblique would be terrible considering how much more production the team got from him.”

Casas entered Saturday having played all of the team’s previous 21 games. He homered in Friday night’s series opener, his fourth round-tripper in his last seven games.
