SEATTLE (AP) - Tampa Bay second baseman Ben Zobrist has left the game after dislocating his left thumb in the fifth inning against Seattle.
Zobrist walked off the field holding his left thumb after sliding head first into second base on a steal attempt Wednesday. Zobrist's hand jammed into the base after he was tagged out by Seattle's Brad Miller. Zobrist immediately yelled in pain. He had reached base on a one-out single.
The Rays later announced the thumb had been dislocated and put back into place.
He was replaced in the bottom of the fifth by Sean Rodriguez.
