The extent of the injury which Jose Iglesias suffered in the second inning of the Red Sox’ 6-4 win over the Blue Jays Friday night had yet to be determined after the game, according to Sox manager John Farrell. Iglesias was forced to leave the game in the fourth inning after being hit by a 93 mph Josh Johnson fastball two innings before.

“He got hit in the right forearm there,” Farrell explained. “He tightened up the next couple of innings. We’ll check him in the morning when he comes in.”

Iglesias stayed in the game at the time of the injury, eventually making a standout defensive play in the third inning.

The shortstop managed to go deep in the hole between third base and shortstop to reel in Melky Cabrera’s grounder, proceeding to fire off a throw to second for a force out.

The next half inning, however, saw Pedro Ciriaco pinch-hit for Iglesias. Ciriaco would single in that at-bat, and then double his next trip to the plate.

“It was more about when he raised his arm up over his shoulder,” Farrell said regarding the specifics of the shortstop’s injury. “The throw that he made was a heck of a play to begin with. You could see some of the throws in between innings starting to lose the carry to his throw. Precautionary. Just got him out there.”
