Yankees’ Starlin Castro leaves game with right hamstring strain

Update – 4:10PM:

New York Yankees writer Bryan Hoch reports that the injury sustained to Starlin Castro in this afternoon’s game is a right hamstring strain and that he will undergo further testing.

Original post:

Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro left this afternoon’s game in Boston during the the fifth inning after pulling up as he ran out a double.  He favored his right leg in what appears to be a hamstring injury.

Manager Joe Girardi went out to speak with Castro and quickly, the decision was made that he was coming out of the game.

Castro is having a pretty good year for the Yankees.  He is hitting .273 with 21 home-runs and 69 RBI on the season.  Castro has been swinging the bat very well of late, adding six home-runs and 15 RBI with a slashline of .337/.346/.564 over the last 28 days.

He was replaced by Ronald Torreyes who would remain in the game defensively at second base.  Torreyes is hitting .280 with one home-run, nine RBI, seven doubles and three triples in limited work this season.
