Boston Red Sox star shortstop Xander Bogaerts has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left ankle injury.
The team announced Monday that an X-ray on Sunday and an MRI Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital revealed a small crack in the talus bone in his left ankle.
Bogaerts departed Sunday’s game after sliding into the opposing team’s dugout while trying to track down a baseball.
The injury is non-displaced and will not require surgery. Bogaerts is expected to miss about 10-14 days.
To fill Bogaerts’ spot on the roster, the Red Sox will recall infielder Tzu-Wei Lin from Triple-A Pawtucket.
