(670 The Score) White Sox second baseman Nick Madrigal exited his team’s game against the Blue Jays on Wednesday evening with what the team called right hamstring soreness. He'll be further evaluated Thursday.
Madrigal suffered the injury while sprinting to first after hitting a slow chopper to third base with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. He pulled up awkwardly just before the bag, being called out because he oddly hopped over and missed the bag despite beating the throw. Madrigal then went down. He had to be helped off the field by a trainer and third-base coach Joe McEwing, putting little to no weight on his right leg.
Madrigal is having a strong season, hitting .305 with a .770 OPS in 53 games entering Wednesday and helping the White Sox overcoming serious injuries to star center fielder Luis Robert and slugger Eloy Jimenez. Madrigal’s RBI double put the White Sox up 2-1 against the Blue Jays in the fifth inning Wednesday. Danny Mendick replaced Madrigal at second base.
