Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr., who sprained a ligament in his right knee on Saturday, was in Boston on Monday to be further examined. The decision was made to place him on the disabled list.

The Sox do not anticipate Bradley being out for a long term.

“Hopefully it’s just the 10 days. We’ll see,” manager John Farrell said. “Everything points in that direction right now. . . . I know Jackie, as tough a kid as he is, will want to play soon.”

Andrew Benintendi started in center field on Monday. The Sox will likely stick with him for as long as Bradley is out. They have Brock Holt, Steve Selsky, and Chris Young available to play left field.
