Two Boston Red Sox sluggers were injured when they collided in the outfield during Monday’s game against the Cleveland Guardians.

Third-baseman Rafael Devers and left-fielder Tyler O’Neill were injured when chasing down a flyball in shallow left field.

Both players were very slow to get to their feet after the collision and were tended to by trainers in the outfield before walking off the field.


Manager Alex Cora called for a towel, that O’Neill held to his face as he walked off. Devers walked off, not appearing to be injured.

Devers remained in the game but O’Neill was replaced by David Hamilton, who slotted into shortstop as part of a number of defensive adjustments.
