Javy Baez Leaves Game with Left Hamstring Tightness (Update: Javy Says He’s Fine, Probably Just Dehydration)

Javy Baez was removed from the game after smacking a two-run double in the bottom of the second against the Padres today. The second baseman was noticeably limping around first base and eventually called for the trainer once he got to second

Reports from Cubs’ camp now indicate that he is being evaluated for left hamstring tightness. We’ll update you with more information as it becomes available. You can see the double below, but it’s hard to make out exactly where the injury occurs, or it’s severity.

Update: Reports coming from Cubs’ beat writers now that this was nothing serious, and that Javy hopes to be back in the lineup this weekend.
