From the official Twitter account of the Pittsburgh Pirates …

That’s the same hamstring that Martin strained in April, costing him an entire month. This latest injury sounds minor, but any sort of absence will be problematic at this point for the Bucs, who are currently 1 1/2 games back of the Cardinals in the National League Central standings with the season due to end on Sunday.

Pittsburgh clinched a postseason berth on Tuesday night, but things aren’t going so well Wednesday.
