Bryce Brentz, who was replaced in the outfield by Alex Hassan in the seventh inning of Friday’s game with Triple-A Pawtucket against Rochester (the Triple-A affiliate of the Twins) shortly after what was described by one onlooker as an awkward slide into second base, did not play on Saturday. The outfielder, according to a team source, is dealing with soreness in his right knee; though on crutches, he had not yet been evaluated as of gametime on Saturday night. At of Saturday night, no transaction had been made involving a potential trip to the disabled list, and Brentz had not been scheduled for an MRI.
Brentz, 24, is hitting .269 with a .319 OBP and .485 slugging mark. He leads the PawSox in homers (16), RBI (53) and is tied for the Pawtucket team lead in games played (74).
