Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was pulled from Friday's game against the New York Yankees after appearing to re-injure his hamstring.
What It Means:
Jones was an early exit from Thursday's game due to cramping in his hamstring and it appeared to flare up on Friday his way to first base during his first at-bat. He tested it out prior to the game and was given the go-ahead. An update should be provided soon.
The 31-year-old Jones is having a bit of a down year, slashing .276/.317/.457 through 538 plate appearances. His .329 wOBA is his lowest since 2008.
Cincinnati Reds shortstop Zack Cozart (knee, heel) is expected to rejoin the starting lineup on Saturday.
What It Means:
The Reds can use him off the bench Friday, but Cozart will return to his starting spot at short for Saturday's tilt with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Knee and heel issues have sidelined him for over a week's worth of work. Jose Peraza will start again in his place Friday for Cincinnati.
Cozart's production from the dish has been pretty middling this year, as he is slashing .263/.313/.442 with a .320 wOBA and .179 ISO through 450 plate appearances.
