Boston Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers left Tuesday's 10-7 loss to the Cleveland Guardians with left knee discomfort, the team announced.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Devers' pain came out of nowhere. The team is still deciding whether he needs imaging.

Devers went 1-for-2 with two RBIs and two walks before being replaced at third base by Bobby Dalbec ahead of the eighth inning.

The 27-year-old had aggravated a shoulder injury he sustained in spring training and missed four games before returning Monday.

"I've never had any issues with my legs. That happened today. I don't know what's going on," Devers said, according to NESN's Tom Caron. "I don't know what to think about it. I've never been the kind of player that's been injured. Obviously, it's frustrating to feel with another pain."

Injuries have ravaged Boston through the first 18 contests of the season. Lucas Giolito, Nick Pivetta, Trevor Story, and Vaughn Grissom are among the Red Sox players on the injured list.
