SEATTLE – Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist left Wednesday’s game in the middle of the fifth inning with a dislocated left thumb.
The thumb was put back in place. Zobrist will remain with the team through the road trip and will be re-evaluated when the Rays return home after Sunday’s game in Anaheim.
Zobrist suffered the injury when he reached for the second base bag while attempting to steal second. He was tagged out and immediately grabbed his thumb.
Zobrist left the game and was replaced by Sean Rodriguez.
