Red Sox Holding Breath On Trevor Story Hand Injury

Getting hit in the hand with a pitch is never a good thing. With so many little bones involved, it's common for there to be a little break or fracture. The Boston Red Sox are holding their breath, hoping that is not the case for Trevor Story. 

The second baseman was in a lot of pain after he took an ugly swing at a Corey Kluber sinker, and had the ball hit him in the hand rather than his bat.

He walked away down the third-base line, and manager Alex Cora and a trainer immediately came out to check on him.  

Story spent the night in a Tampa hospital, and the Red Sox are awaiting word on the x-rays, to determine the severity of the injury. 

The Red Sox' big offseason free agent signing is hitting just .222 this year but he is producing runs—with 15 homers and 58 RBIs. And that's in addition to his Gold Glove-caliber defense at second base.

All they can do now is wait for the medical results to see if he'll be out for long.
