An MRI exam Thursday revealed a tear and bruise, assistant general manager Tony Siegle said.

Everett was hurt on a hard slide into second base in the fourth inning of Wednesday's 9-0 loss to Florida. He was replaced in right field Thursday by Ron Calloway.

Everett, brought in to replace Vladimir Guerrero, is batting .233 with one home run and two RBI.
