Brock Holt (hamstring) leaves Red Sox loss, Cora calls him 'day-to-day'

Brock Holt (hamstring) leaves Red Sox loss, Cora calls him 'day-to-day'

Brock Holt exited the Boston Red Sox' game against the Toronto Blue Jays after just three innings on Sunday afternoon after suffering an apparent injury.

According to multiple reports, Holt left the game with "left hamstring tightness." It's unclear what the extent of the injury might be, but it's certainly not good news for the Red Sox.

Holt was thrown out at home plate in the 2nd inning trying to score from second base and apparently suffered the injury on the play. While Holt did return to the game in the 3rd inning to play the field, he only lasted one inning before being replaced by Eduardo Nunez.

If Holt misses any amount of time, the Red Sox will be thin on the bench once again. Regular starting third baseman, Rafael Devers, missed his second straight game with a hamstring injury of his own. However, Alex Cora expects him to be ready to play in the coming days, so that is good news for the team.

Holt is hitting .302 this season with one homer. He has helped to solidify the team's troubles at second base since returning from the IL with eye and shoulder issues.

UPDATE (5:25 p.m): Alex Cora provided an update on Holt after the game and declared him "day-to-day."

MLB Rumors: Red Sox among teams to evaluate Blue Jays reliever Daniel Hudson

MLB Rumors: Red Sox among teams to evaluate Blue Jays reliever Daniel Hudson

As the July 31 trade deadline quickly approaches, the Red Sox will need to bolster their bullpen and starting rotation if they want to make another run at back-to-back World Series championships. 

They already have reported interest in starters like Madison Bumgarner and Marcus Stroman, and now they seem to have eyes on some much-needed bullpen help. 

According to Jon Morosi, the Red Sox are among teams evaluated Blue Jays reliever Daniel Hudson as several clubs have shown interest in trading for the 32-year-old right-hander. 

Hudson has appeared in 40 games this season for Toronto, posting a 2.72 ERA and 42 strikeouts over 43 innings. Morosi notes that over his last 16 outings, Hudson has been excellent, sporting a 0.93 ERA. 

The Red Sox are expected to be buyers at the trade deadline, with their biggest needs on the mound. If they expect to make any sort of run in the postseason or get into the playoffs for that matter, they will need to acquire pitchers. Hudson could go a long way in stabilizing what has been a disastrous group of relievers this season.
