Boston Red Sox Trevor story to visit hand specialist, but team doesn’t think anything is structurally wrong


BOSTON — Trevor Story will visit a hand specialist on Friday for a second opinion.

The second baseman was hit in the hand while swinging on an 89 mph lead from Corey Kluber in Tampa Bay on July 12. He was diagnosed with a contusion on his right hand.

“He didn’t feel like today he was moving in the right direction,” manager Alex Cora said here at Fenway Park on Friday. “We feel like there’s nothing structural about it, but it’s just kind of like easing his mind. So we’ll probably know more tonight or tomorrow.

Story still feels discomfort in his hand when he punches. He doesn’t feel it when he throws.

“We’ll find out more today, but I think everyone in the medical department feels like we’ll be in the same place tomorrow,” Cora said. “And it’s about treatment and continuing to improve.”
