Pablo Sandoval's snake-bitten tenure with the Boston Red Sox continues. The third baseman was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right knee sprain Tuesday, retroactive to April 24.

Sandoval hurt his knee attempting to field a ground ball Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles.

"Medial side of the right knee is what’s been sprained," manager John Farrell told SiriusXM's MLB Radio, according to's Evan Drellich. "I don't know how long this one’s going to take.

"It looked like kind of a benign play at the time, and in between innings it really started to get sore on him. ... Added force as he was kind of rolling over the front side of that. He’s got some swelling in there, it really kind of swelled up on him pretty good."

Farrell said there's no timetable for Sandoval's return. In the meantime, third base will be covered by a combination of Josh Rutledge and Marco Hernandez, with an expanded role for utility hitter Brock Holt.

The earliest Sandoval could return is May 4, the end of a four-game series against the Orioles, though it's no lock.

Sandoval is hitting .213 with three home runs and 10 RBIs over 17 games this season.
