DETROIT – Jackie Bradley Jr. said Sunday he’s hopeful he can avoid the disabled list after missing Boston’s game at Detroit because of an injured right knee.
Bradley fell after rounding first base when he hit a flyout in Saturday’s loss to the Tigers. He was able to walk off and seemed OK, but Manager John Farrell said before Sunday’s game that Bradley was dealing with soreness and swelling, and had an MRI.
“The MRI shows that he has some inflammation and, I guess you’d call, a sprain to the outside of the knee,” Farrell said after the game.
Bradley said he still feels as though he can move around pretty well.
PADRES: San Diego placed right-hander Trevor Cahill on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain, a move retroactive to Thursday.
The team recalled right-hander Zach Lee from Triple-A El Paso.
MARLINS: Adeiny Hechavarria landed on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain. Miami called up infielder J.T. Riddle from Triple-A New Orleans to take his roster spot.
It’s not clear when Hechavarria’s injury occurred. He went 2 for 5 in the 8-1 win over the New York Mets on Saturday night. In five games, Hechavarria is 4 for 20.
YANKEES: Catcher Gary Sanchez was placed on the disabled list and New York called up catcher Kyle Higashioka from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
“I want to stay positive. I want to get back as soon as possible,” said Sanchez through an interpreter.
