Asche Injures Hammy
Cody Asche left tonight’s game against the Mets in the seventh inning with a mildly strained/cramped right hamstring.
Asche singled to right field when he pulled up lame running to first base.
“On the ball heading to the gap, he put a little extra into the run and felt a little something,” Ryne Sandberg said. “He’s day-to-day, but it felt a lot better. He felt if he would’ve run to first base and then made an out and came back in and would’ve been able to shake it off and sit, it would’ve been fine. Cramp symptoms.”
Sandberg said Asche would not play in tomorrow’s series finale as a precaution. He called Asche day-to-day.
Utility infielder John McDonald replaced him as a pinch-runner.
Asche is hitting .256 (22-for-86) with six doubles, one triple, two home runs and 14 RBIs in 25 games. Since a 1-for-17 start to his big league career, Asche is hitting .304 (21-for-69).
