Update – 3:35 p.m.: Francoeur has been diagnosed with a torn ligament in his left thumb. He is listed as day-to-day.
You’ll remember Alex Cora played with torn ligaments in both thumbs for most of the season before having surgery. Francoeur will try to play through it.
Original post: Jeff Francoeur made a wonderful diving grab in the ninth inning that was eventually overruled. In the process, he hurt his left thumb.
He stayed in the game, eventually hitting into an unassisted triple play to end the game.
This morning, Francoeur is getting an MRI on his thumb, as it swelled overnight, reports Adam Rubin.
Guess you can scratch him off the lineup card today.
