Mookie Betts now has another injury to deal with.

The Red Sox' right fielder was hit in the right shoulder with a throw while running to second base in the first inning. After appearing to be in some pain, trainers came out, but he stayed in the game until following his at-bat in the top of the second.

He didn't come out for the bottom of the second inning and Jackie Bradley Jr. moved to right field, Andrew Benintendi to center field and Blake Swihart entered the game in left field to take Betts' spot in the lineup.

The team announced he left the game with a right shoulder contusion and is day-to-day.

Here is video of the play.
