Navarro to get X-ray on left wrist
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Maybe in the regular season, Yamaico Navarro would have been glad to take one for the team if it meant walking off with a win. But there was no gain in what happened Wednesday night, when the infield prospect got hit on the left wrist, forcing in a run and ending Boston's 2-1 victory over the Orioles.

Navarro raised his left wrist to block Wynn Pelzer's pitch from hitting his face.

After the game, Navarro's hand was heavily taped. Navarro will be examined by the team's medical staff, with, at the very least, an X-ray.

"We'll get him iced down and get him looked at," said manager Terry Francona.

Navarro is expected to start the 2011 season at Triple-A Pawtucket. He spent some time with the Red Sox last season, hitting .143 in 20 games.
