Boston Red Sox utility man Marwin Gonzalez has been battling a hamstring injury over the last week. He left last Monday's game with right hamstring tightness and got some time off before returning to the lineup on Sunday.

It turns out Gonzalez may require an official stint on the injured list after tweaking his hamstring again.

Marwin Gonzalez Injury Update

Gonzalez was forced to leave Sunday's game in the second inning, and manager Alex Cora revealed that the utility man is likely headed to the IL with a right hamstring strain. Given how the injury popped up once again, the veteran may require extended time on the shelf to make sure he's fully recovered to help his team finish the second half strong.

The 32-year-old veteran has appeared in 70 games the Red Sox this season, recording 2 home runs and 18 RBIs while slashing .205/.286/.297.

Boston heads into the All-Star break tied for the best record in the AL and leading the Tampa Bay Rays by 1.5 games for first place in the AL East. The Red Sox own the sixth-best odds to win the World Series at +1200, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
