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.

Sandoval hit his first homer of the spring in Thursday's game against the Pirates. It came swinging lefty against right-hander Ryan Beckman.

Joining Sandoval was David Ortiz, who also homered off Beckman on Thursday. It was an encouraging sign of left-handed pop for a team that generated a mere .696 OPS swinging from the left side of the plate in 2014, a tie for 20th in the majors.
