"We definitely want to keep him here through tonight, just to make sure David is OK, plus I don't know that we really have a move that's cut and dry," Francona said. "And he might pinch hit. We have six days until the 31st, but that's something we'll probably talk about. I think we'd like to keep him here. If something happened and we couldn't, we may have to return him. But I think we'd just as soon keep him here. It's not like it's April and he has 100 at-bats. This guy's got a full season under his belt."
