Hamstring Newsbeat

Jake Arrieta’s hamstring injury ‘could be worse’ but severity unclear

The hottest pitcher in the majors left the Cubs’ 12-0 loss to the Pirates in the third inning Monday when the middle of the right hamstring “grabbed” on a pitch to the third batter of the inning.

“I’ve never really had any -hamstring issue before. It’s kind of a foreign feeling,” said Arrieta, the National League’s pitcher of the month in August. “I think it could have been a lot worse. No pop or anything like that. So that’s a good sign.”

Arrieta is to be re-evaluated Tuesday, at which point the medical staff could determine whether he should get an MRI exam. For now the team has not labeled the injury beyond calling it tightness as it waits for Arrieta’s reaction to icing overnight and the next exam.
