Boston Red Sox outfielder Adam Duvall was placed on the injured list with a fractured left wrist Monday, the team announced.

Duvall suffered a distal left wrist fracture while trying to make a diving catch in the outfield during Boston’s 4-1 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. The 34-year-old was trying to track down a fly ball from Spencer Torkelson in the ninth inning when he landed awkwardly on his wrist. He missed the catch, and immediately grabbed at his wrist in pain.

Duvall did not make the trip with the Red Sox to Florida for their four-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays that starts Monday night. He was undergoing additional tests on his wrist in Boston. It’s unclear if he’ll need surgery, but manager Alex Cora expects that Duvall will be out for an extended period.

“The guy’s a good player,” Cora said, via The Associated Press. “It’s a big blow. But at the same time, somebody has to step up. At one point we hope he comes back.”

Duvall underwent surgery on his left wrist last summer to repair a torn tendon, but Cora said this latest injury is “in the other side” and unrelated. The tests, he said, are “going on just to make sure.”

Duvall is hitting .455 and four home runs and 14 RBI in eight games this season. The Red Sox are 5-4 headed into their series with the Rays. Cora said the team will rotate to cover for Duvall in the outfield until he can return rather than appoint a more permanent replacement.

“With the way we’re going to do it now, we have to mix and match and try to maximize the whole roster,” Cora said, via MassLive.
