Cubs star Baez dealing with hamstring tightness

9 March 2018 04:15

Chicago Cubs second baseman Javier Baez left Thursday's spring training game against the San Diego Padres with a hamstring injury.

Baez pulled up after belting a double in the second inning but said after the game the injury was not serious. 

"I felt a cramp," Baez said, via MLB.com.

"After I passed first base, [my leg] went back to normal. When I stopped, I felt the cramp. Obviously, [manager Joe Maddon] didn't want me to stay in the game. I'm completely fine, 100 per cent. I got some treatment. The [athletic] trainers were all over it, and everything is fine."

Baez, who batted .273/.317/.480 last season while playing exceptional defense, could be back in the lineup as soon as Saturday. 

"I haven't been drinking a lot of water," Baez said. "I drink water during the workouts, but outside of the workout, it's also important, and I haven't been drinking a lot of water."
