Dodgers' Juan Uribe pulled from game with tightness in hamstring

Dodgers' Juan Uribe pulled from Friday's loss to Brewers with tightness in his right hamstring

Juan Uribe left the Dodgers' game on Friday night early because of tightness in his right hamstring. The move was described as precautionary, and Uribe, the Dodgers' starting third baseman, is day to day.

Sound familiar?

That’s because it’s the same hamstring that sidelined Uribe for five weeks earlier in the year. Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said he would know more about the injury on Saturday, but that there was concern about the injury.

“A little bit, just because it’s the same leg, and when you see hamstrings, it seems like they’re pretty finicky,” he said after the Dodgers' 6-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

The 35-year-old Uribe is batting .292, but has also missed 44 games this year and hasn’t played in more than 135 games in a season since 2010.
