Remember last week’s story about how Mets possible second baseman Daniel Murphy had “leg fatigue.” Yeah, turns out it’s really a pulled hamstring.
Adam Rubin — who passed that along in his ESPN chat a few minutes ago — said that it was minor, but it’s still not great news. Not for Murphy, who has had health problems in the past. Not for the Mets either, who have a history of under-reporting the severity of player injuries that occur in winter ball, often via Adam Rubin.
NEW YORK — Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm is out of the starting lineup for the second time in three games because of left hamstring tightness.
Bohm had an MRI and the Phillies were awaiting the results. Philadelphia manager Rob Thomson said it was too soon to tell if Bohm might land on the injured list.
Bohm sat out the loss in Atlanta because of the same issue then Philadelphia was off.
Edmundo Sosa was set to start at third against the New York Mets, batting ninth.
Thomson said Bohm felt discomfort after fielding a slow roller. He played the entire game and went 0 for 3 in a 2-0 loss to the Mets.
Bohm is batting .265 with six homers and a team-high 37 RBIs this season. He has a .724 OPS.
