Red Sox catcher Connor Wong has a hamstring injury
On Thursday afternoon, the Red Sox's catcher staff might have taken a hit.
Connor Wong underwent additional treatment after suffering a left leg injury in Thursday's rout of the Phillies, according to manager Alex Cora.
Friday will bring more information about Wong's outlook, according to Cora.
In the fifth inning of the game on Thursday, Wong made his debut.
He had one at-bat before being replaced by Elih Marrero in the sixth inning.
Wong and Reese McGuire are the only catchers on Boston's 40-man squad, and they play a significant role in the team's plans for the position in 2023.
Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom was confident in McGuire and Wong when he decided against adding a catcher to the major league roster over the offseason.
Jorge Alfaro, a seasoned player, was signed by Boston to a minor league deal.
Wong and Alfaro began camp competing for a position on the Opening Day roster as a right-handed replacement for McGuire.
Wong still has minor league options, so the Red Sox can move him between the majors and minors up to five times during the regular season.
