BOSTON (CBS) — Not much is going right for the Boston Red Sox.

Losers of eight straight, Boston had to pull DH David Ortiz from Sunday afternoon’s loss to Seattle. Ortiz fouled a ball off his right foot in the fourth inning, and limped off the field following a single in the sixth.

Ortiz underwent a scan on his foot following the game, and results came back negative, but he is listed as day-to-day with a right foot contusion.

“There’s no fractures of any kind, based on that test and we’ll check him once we get to the ballpark [in Toronto] tomorrow, and obviously throughout the night tonight,” Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters following Sunday’s loss.

Ortiz currently leads the team with 30 home runs and 93 RBI on the season.

The Red Sox also placed shortstop Xander Bogaerts on the seven-day disabled list Sunday — retroactive to Saturday — with a mild concussion. The rookie has been out of the lineup since being hit in the head by a pitch on Friday night.

Bogaerts underwent more testing on Sunday and is still suffering from concussion-like symptoms.

“Until they subside or clear up, we’ve got to go through the protocol to get him cleared,” Farrell said of Bogaerts. “So he’ll be inactive for those seven days.”
