I was making my rounds today and was watching the infielders practice running the bases. First time, I took video, second, stills.
It was during the second time around the bases when I noticed Odubel Herrera pull up short and tender as he came into third. I have that still picture below:
He walked around gingerly for a moment but as I focused in on the others who were running home, I realized he hadn’t continued on and “disappeared.”
During the afternoon presser, Kapler referred to it as a “slight left hamstring strain”. Herrera had reportedly been bothered by it earlier and and had an MRI that showed no damage.
With the injury, this could leave an opening for either Roman Quinn or Mickey Moniak as Moniak was added to the 40 man roster this season. Moniak has been hitting well as camp opened.
