Escobar Leaves With Hamstring Tightness

SS Yunel Escobar left Wednesday’s game against the Yankees before the seventh inning due to right hamstring tightness and is considered day-to-day.

Escobar, whose struggling bat has come alive this homestand, said he felt a “pull” when running to first on his sixth-inning single.

He said he has never had hamstring issues before but was pulled as a “precaution.” He will be re-evaluated today.
