Red Sox’ right fielder Mookie Betts was removed from the eighth inning of the club’s 8-2 loss to the Astros on Friday after aggravating a left wrist injury. He was in obvious discomfort after taking a few swings against Luke Gregerson in the top of the eighth, and was replaced on the field by Rajai Davis to start the bottom half of the inning. The team has yet to address his injury or set a timetable for his return, though it doesn’t appear serious enough to keep him sidelined through the remainder of the ALDS. Betts initially sustained the injury last Sunday, when he was diagnosed with inflammation and a bone bruise in his left wrist following a 6-4 loss against the Blue Jays.
