Rob Thomson gives a positive update on Alec Bohm after a gruesome finger injury in Monday’s loss
Alec Bohm suffered a scary injury in tonight’s 6-1 loss to the Cardinals, but Rob Thomson gave the media a positive update following the game.
After roping a gapper into left-center, Bohm slid into 2nd base and was called out on a bang-bang play. Bohm immediately grabbed his finger after jamming it into the base, got up, and called for the trainers, telling them “it’s broken” as he walked back towards the dugout.
Alec Bohm exited the game and received X-rays, where it would later be announced that his finger was not broken, just dislocated. They popped it back into place inside the dugout, and the club is still deciding if he needs to hit the injured list.
Bohm will have a few days off, as he is one of the four Phillies players that won’t make the trip to Toronto due to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Alec Bohm is now the third Phillie to suffer a finger injury this season, following Bryce Harper and Jean Segura.
The team will pack their bags and head up to Toronto in just a few hours, as they kick off their two-game set with Toronto on Tuesday night. The Phillies will go with another bullpen game, as Andrew Bellatti is set to get the start.
