BOSTON -- Red Sox principal owner John Henry was injured Friday afternoon in an incident aboard his yacht. He walked off the yacht under his own power, wearing a neck brace, reported WBZs Radio Mike Macklin.

The Red Sox confirmed Henry was in a minor accident. According to WBZ: Sox president Larry Lucchino told WBZ there was a minor incident on the boat, but wouldnt elaborate. He said he expects Henry to be OK.

Henry was at Fenway Park earlier Friday to meet with Terry Francona, but left around. Henry drove out of Fenway Park, preceded by Francona, bench coach DeMarlo Hale, and followed by Sox chairman Tom Werner in separate vehicles.

Sandoval: I got lazy after signing big contract with Red Sox

Sandoval: I got lazy after signing big contract with Red Sox

The Pablo Sandoval redemption tour is underway as the former World Series MVP tries to revive his career after two disastrous seasons with the Red Sox organization.

In an interview with ESPN Deportes, he admits to being “complacent” during his first two seasons in Boston after signing a five-year, $95 million deal. 

"My career had fallen into an abyss because I was so complacent with things that I had already accomplished," Sandoval said. "I did not work hard in order to achieve more and to remain at the level of the player that I am and that I can be."

After dealing Travis Shaw to the Brewers, Sandoval is expected to be the Red Sox primary third baseman in 2017.

"I am not taking anything for granted," he said. "I am here to work hard. I'm not thinking about the position or not. I am starting from scratch, and I am here to show what I can do on the field."

The 30-year-old says he’s following a “really strict routine” this offseason, and it shows. In a recent photo, Sandoval appears noticeably thinner. Sandoval says his wife giving birth to “Baby Panda” has served as inspiration.

"Watching 'Baby Panda' grow up and that he gets the opportunity to see his father play in the majors for seven, eight more years, to get back to the success I had, that's my motivation every day," Sandoval said. "The people that I surround myself with now and my family, they are the key to my success. This has been a life lesson."
