Manager John Farrell said Sandoval (neck) is suffering from symptoms of whiplash and may not be available for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Sandoval paid the price for his diving catch in the field Monday, as his neck ended up tightening up a little later in the game and resulted in his removal after five innings. The Red Sox will wait and see how he feels Tuesday morning before making a determination on his status.

Sandoval was removed from Monday's game against the Blue Jays after the fifth inning due to neck soreness, Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports.

Sandoval was at least able to bring some profit to those who used him in daily formats, as he went 2-for-2 with a homer and three RBI prior to his departure. He appeared to injure himself when he face planted while making a diving catch, but was able to stay in the game temporarily and hit the home run in his next at-bat. The Red Sox may just be exercising caution here, so Sandoval can be considered day-to-day heading into Tuesday's game. Brock Holt replaced him at third base.

Sandoval hit third in the order against the Orioles on Sunday and filled the box score, going 1-for-2 with a home run, three RBI, two runs scored and three walks.

The Panda is off to an underwhelming start to the season and even though his OPS still sits at .725, owners will be happy that he finally smacked his home run with the Red Sox. His move to the three-spot corresponded with a routine day off for David Ortiz, so he should expected to bat further down in the order when Big Papi returns to the lineup on Monday.

Sandoval is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles, according to Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com.

Sandoval went just 2-for-11 over his last four games, and the Red Sox are scheduled to face left-hander Wei-Yin Chen on Monday, so manager John Farrell felt it was a good time for a day off. Brock Holt will get the start at third base in Sandoval's place.

Sandoval (foot) will start at third base and bat fifth in Friday's game against the Orioles, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

Sandoval's absence unsurprisingly lasted for just one game, as he's merely dealing with a bruise on his foot. He has an interesting track record against Baltimore's Friday starter, with his 34 at-bats versus Ubaldo Jimenez resulting in 10 strikeouts but also five extra-base hits (two homers). Sandoval is 11-for-36 (.306 BA) this season, but all of his hits have been singles.

Sandoval (foot) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, according to Tim Britton of the Providence Journal.

The foot injury Sandoval suffered Tuesday does not appear serious, but he will get a day to rest Wednesday, and also another Thursday with no game on the schedule for the Red Sox. Brock Holt will man the hot corner in Sandoval's place Wednesday.

There are no structural issues with Sandoval's injured foot, based on scans done at the ballpark Tuesday, the Boston Globe's Xander Bogaerts reports.

It appears to simply be a contusion, which leaves Sandoval with a day-to-day tag. Hanley Ramirez moved to third base during Tuesday's game, but the Red Sox may explore other internal options like Brock Holt or Garin Cecchini if Sandoval misses further time.

Sandoval left Tuesday's game with a left foot contusion, CSNNE's Sean McAdam reports.

Following his removal after getting hit by a pitch midway through Tuesday's game, Hanley Ramirez moved to third base and Shane Victorino entered the game to play the outfield. The team may elect to give Sandoval and MRI to make sure there was not a fracture, but it is just a contusion Sandoval should be able to avoid a DL stint. Consider him day-to-day for now.
