Adrian Beltre day-to-day with mild hamstring strain

4 Comments

Adrian Beltre missed more than a month with hamstring problems last season, so there was plenty of worrying in Texas when he exited Saturday’s game with a left hamstring injury.

However, according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com an MRI exam showed only a mild strain and Beltre is officially listed as day-to-day.

He’s not in the lineup tonight, so Michael Young will start at third base with Brandon Snyder at designated hitter, but it sounds like Beltre will definitely avoid the disabled list.

Bryce Harper finally gets his first spring training hit with Phillies

Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper hasn’t had the best spring training showing. After a delayed start because he didn’t officially sign until early this month, Harper made his Phillies debut on March 9. Then Harper had an injury scare when he was hit in the ankle by a pitch on March 15. Harper returned on Sunday and finally registered his first hit of the spring on Wednesday — a line drive up the middle.

Harper finished 1-for-2 with a walk on the afternoon. In 10 official at-bats, Harper is batting .100/.438/.100. As you can see, five total walks are helping that on-base percentage. Spring stats are largely meaningless, though, so no one should be worried about Harper with the start of the regular season just a week away.
